Customer Question

I have a hotpoint lft 228a which is showing error 5 on the display (blocked filters or trap). I have cleaned the filters and checked the trap without correcting the fault(no blockages).

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the issue is with the pressure switch circuit. The pressure switch is mounted at the top of the machine, under the top panel. It will have a very small hose attached to it. If you remove that hose and blow through it (the hose), does air easily pass?
