How to Fix an E05 Error Code on a Hoover Washing Machine

Hoover Washing Machine Error Code E05

What does that blinking light or strange code on the front of your Hoover washing machine mean? If your washer’s not functioning normally and you can see either E05 or five flashes repeating in between pauses on the display panel, your machine is displaying an error code. Error code E05 relates to a problem with the water temperature sensor.

How to Diagnose and Fix Fault Code E05

Hoover Washing Machine Temperature Sensor

Washing Machine Temperature Sensor

To get to the bottom of your Hoover washing machine temperature sensor problems, follow the below steps:

  • Switch off and unplug your washing machine.
  • Check the temperature sensor wiring and connections. (You’ll find the sensor at the back of your machine on the drum.)
  • If there’s no fault with the wiring or connections replace the temperature sensor. 

Once you’ve fixed any loose connections or fitted a new temperature sensor if necessary the fault should be gone. When you switch on your machine again everything should be back to normal.
