Question: F05

I have a Maytag MFW9600SQ0 front load washer that often times gives the F05 error code approx 3 minutes after starting the load. I notice it happening most often when I have selected the cold water setting. YouTube indicates that it might be the door latch or the water sensor. When this happens, I can stop the cycle (already stopped by the error) open and close the door and restart the cycle. Sometimes it starts up and sometimes I need to do this 3+ times. We have not made any repairs yet Any advise?

See the error information linked below as it applies to your washer as well. Your washer has both a sensor and heating element so the problem could be either one. The troubleshooting listed on the page linked below will tell you how to determine which is causing the problem.
