Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF865 Front Load Washer
When i try to start the machine by pressing start all the keys gets blocked and i cant change anything. and it starts flashing (F-01) constantley.
i have to turn it of from the mains to stop it flashing.
Error code F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac, this is part of the electronics that control the motor.
What you need to check first of all is the motor.
Remove back panel, undo 2 screws that secure motor, unplug motor lead, and lever motor backwards out of the brackets, don't let go of motor.
Check to see if motor has brushes fitted, if it has , check for shorted brushes and wear,if less than 2-3 mm, then replace.
If after replacing brushes and it still shows F01, then chances are it has blown the pcb, could be expensive, especially if you need to replace the motor.
If no brushes, then pcb is probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution

Tips for a great answer:
Your washer is in the
"child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program. Press the "menu" button until you
see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. If nothing is pressed within 10 seconds.following
this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display. Once you see that in the display, press the
"select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the
display. Finally by pressing the
start/pause button the key symbol should disappear - confirming you have
successfully exited the child lock program.
Pl click if helped.
