Hotpoint F-01 Error code

Hi Folks,

I have a Hotpoint washing machine model WT761P.
Over last couple of weeks my wife has said that the washer has not finished its cycle until she manually selected rinse and spin. Today it completed its cycle automatically but the door remained locked. After turning off at the plug it allowed her to open the door. When I turned it back on it gives error code F-01. At this point I cannot use the off button and have to unplug at the wall to remove the power. According to various sources this appears to suggest an issue with the motor or control unit. If I unplug the motor the fault code remains. I have removed the control unit and inspected the circuit board but can see no evidence of burning. I still suspect it is the control unit but have 2 questions:
Is there any way I can confirm if the unit is faulty before I waste money buying one.
Where can I get a new unit from as none of the parts sites seem to list them. The info on the board is that it is a Selectron with code no: 215009163.01.
Any help gratefully received before I have to go and buy another as I can't see that the cost of an engineer call out, labour and part(s) being any cheaper.
This washer is only 2 years old. What happened to the good old washers that ran for ever? My Dads is over 20 years old!
Thanks
Griff

How can i fix my hotpoint wt940 with F-01


Hi Hayley,

Please help us help you. Expand on what is working and what is not. SO please add to your comments and repost.

First things first. Water is always a hazard with electricity. Please turn of the power source to your machine and do a fine cleanup, Take canister vacuum and get the hard reach places. A large box fan will help dry the machine and the floor. Pull the machine away from the wall. If possible lift the top off the machine to allow air flow and a panel cover for examination. a hair dryer can be used to dry electronic components in the event of an overload. Give it a chance.


If the machine restarts and is faulting. Here is a link to diagnose the coding Error Codes Hotpoint Service

F01 - Short circuit motor triac*


Here is a place for an online repair manual Free Online HOTPOINT Washing Machine Repair Manual

Hotpoint WF640


the f-01 error code on your hotpoint all in 1 washer/dryer is a short circuit code for the motor. the only way to clear the code is to have a service tech come and inspect the reason for the error.
