  • Check wiring

Fault f08


The heating element is gone open circuit. Replace element.
Error F08 means that the heater relay cannot be activated. Check connections on:
- pressure switch.
- heater element.
- control module.

If you still cannot get it to work, then you are probably going to have to call an technician service.

Hope this helps.

My hotpoint WD640 is flashing F08 error message. What do I need to do to fix it? Thanks N


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For most Hotpoint (and other named) models 'F08' means 'heater relay (possibly) stuck'. 'Check power supply connections to the heater, wiring and module (i.e. PCB) connections' (apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause)

So- if you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you may be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)

Sorry we cannot be of more help!

Good luck, John C

Hi I have a hotpoint wf630 washing machine and it keeps flashing error codes f08. Could you tell me what this codes means. many thanks, Stuart


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Most Hotpoint, Ariston and Indesit (who make the other two) use similar fault codes. Although I cannot confirm it on your particular machine, f08 means there is a problem with the heater/its relay/its control. Often a cure is to re-seat the cables/wiring to and from these items.
REMOVE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANYTHING OF COURSE.
Good luck,

John C

What does "f08" mean on


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.

Ariston AIB16 flashing fault code f-08? can this


F08 Heater relay cannot be activated
this can be repaired cheap its part of the main board

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
