F5 error code after washer has filled up with water?

After machine has filled up with water and is starting the wash cycle f 05 error code comes up. Went through diagnostic test in the manual and goes through c:00-c:08 with no problem. Try to wash a load, still comes up with f 05 code. The manual says it is a water temperature sensor error, but there is no heating element present.?

According to the manual, that washer takes in hot and cold water and adjusts the ratio to achieve the desired temperature, so it doesn't need a heating element. Sounds like you need to replace the temperature sensor.
