F0 E5 or ob Error Code

This Error Code indicates that the load is off balance, or is too large. The washer will try a recovery routine, to try to re-balance itself.

If the recovery routine does not work, remove some items or try to re-balance the load. 

If the error code clears, the machine will try to drain. If the problem persists, call for service.
