Error 05 is a no water error and error 09 is an overfill error. Obviously, those error codes are contradictory when both are being displayed. Has water leaked into the base of the machine, under the tub?

Hi Kelly as I've stated, I have checked the trip under the machine and it seems to work OK. There is no water. It originally came out with an error 09 and since it has shown an error 05. I'm assuming the issue is something to do with the water inlet valve. Is there a way of resetting it?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

You can reset the control by turning mains supply off for a few hours. Do the errors return?
