F08 actually means the heater relay cannot be activated.
A few reasons for this, faulty heater, broken wire, faulty pressure switch or faulty main control board (the heater relay is on the main control board).
There is no reset for this.
Unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.
Check the wiring to the heater and thermostat,give the wires a good tug as they can break internally and look ok.
If you have a multimeter, test the heater, it should read around 25 ohms.
Take the top off the appliance, locate the pressure switch (has a thin tube on it), give it a few good taps with your screwdriver handle.
Finally, take the main control board out (bottom left when viewed from the rear) and one plug at a time, take them off, clean and tighten them, plug them back on.
If everything checks out ok, then it's likely the main control board is at fault.

The error F08 indicates that the heater relay is stuck. This could be a fault with either the pressure switch, heater or the module connections.
Think you need to book a service call from engineer.

Hotpoint ultima WT965A fault code F08 what do i need to do to fix it please. wachine is full of water and i cant select any cycle to empty it.


To empty the washer, remove the drain hose from the outlet, and lay it down to floor level, this will let the water run out into a bucket or similar.
Code F08 is indicating means heater relay cann ot be activated.
Check all connectios to and from the pressure switch, the module, and the heater.
Hope this helps.

F-08 Error message keeps appearing


Error code F08 indicates that the heater relay cannot be activated.
Check connections on
1--pressure switch.
2--heater element.
3--control module.
If you still cannot get it to work, then you are probably going to have to call an engineer.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Error code F-08


Hi,

The meaning of F08 is that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated for some reason, this has the effect of stopping the water heater from working.
In order to resolve this the only thing you can do is to test the heater, and see if it is o/k.,if it is , then you there is not much else you can do, except call an engineer.
Hoep this resolves your issue. God Bless.
