The error code F13 is indicating dryer thermistor open or short circuit.
This is located in the top of m/c, and it looks something like a thermostat wired in series with the element, if there is more than one, then it is advisable to replace both..
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Error code f-13


Do u want to resolve the f-13 fault code ON HOTPOINT WD860 Ultima and other models.
Fix the fault . It is a tricky job but the heater thermostat switch has tripped as it senses something burning. Probably a little bit of fluff on the heater element inside the heater unit.. There are 2 switches on top of this heater unit. One where the 2 blue wires go on the top left of the 3rd picture and the other which has a tall black wire connector on shown in the middle of the 3rd picture. Remove that connector and undo the holding screw . You can then reset the switch. The switch is a small circular switch hidden beneather the connector on the photos. This thermostat switch has a yellow. red dot ontop of it. If you use a small pin or needle and press into that dot you will hear it tick back into place. you have reset the switch now. You will probably need to clean the inside of the heater element unit to get rid of the fluff particles or it will keep switching off. To take this apart you will need a set of Star screwdrivers. Its a bit tricky but you will be able to undo the star screws and take them all out. I will add some photos to show you the unit apart. You can see the build up of fluff on the photos i have added from my hotpoint WD860 heater unit. This is a tricky job and takes about an hour due to the screw being awkward to take off and put on again but mine hasnt faulted for 2 years since sorting it out. You can buy a new Thermostat switch which is about 10 pounds sterling from Hotpoint or other spares stores. error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-0.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-2.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-5.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-9.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-14.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-20.jpg

Rather than try to give you answers, I'm giving you this online link that COULD lead you to a solution: http://appliantology.org/topic/42011-washer-dryer-combo-error-code-er13-haier-summit-ariston/
I looked at it for a few minutes and answers are up and down between encouragement and discouragement. One suggestion is a bad thermostat at the top of the unit, but I'm not sure if you'll be successful in locating replacement parts according to some of the things I glanced at. Hope this helps.

Hotpoint washer dryer wdf 740 showing error code F-13


F13 error code is a dryer NTC problem.


What you need to do is take off the top of the washer. From there you will see the dryer chamber on top. Towards the front of this is the NTC it will have 2 thin wires going to it.


Make sure the wires are on ok and not broken. If the wiring is fine then you will need a multimeter and test the NTC. It should give a reading in Kohms.


If the NTC is fine then its possible the control board at the back is the problem.

F:13 COMES UP ON THE DISPLAY WHEN THE CYCLE FINISHES. YOU HAVE TO TURN OFF THE MACHINE WHEN IT F:13 IS DISPLAYED AND IT TAKES A WHILE FOR THE DISPLAY TO COME BACK IN THE MACHINE AGAIN.


f13 is a Dispenser circuit error

If the dispenser motor is not able to be driven to it's proper position.

Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser.

Check Wire Harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU)

Check Dispenser Motor
