    Many thanks for your assistance on both occassions, sorry for not rating your initial suggestion in the first instance, I have now rated your suggestions. I managed to find the part in the machin without any difficulty, apart from the pulling out of the machine from the laundry cupboard, it was easy enough to swop the parts over following your instructions.

    Again many thanks.

I provided a solution for you on how to replace the temp sensor on your washer, which you did not rate, or comment on, now I see you are asking why it does not work.
F03 indicates wash thermistor is open circuit, but this is only an indication of the problem, not neccesserily the solution, as other components could be involved, including the main pcb.


PLZ rate my solution.
Thankyou.

That is fault code 41

The temperature sensor is measuring temperatures above 110oC. The fault is probably
due to a short circuit in the sensor line. This fault is only applicable in the GW models.
Primary Source: Thermistor.
Action: 1) Check the connection from the thermistor the Motor Control
Module
2) Check the resistance of the thermistor. It should read 12.5k ohms
at 20oC. Replace if faulty.
3) Replace the Motor Control Module.

Message flashing F-24


Hi

F24 is a water temperature sensor error. You have to unplug the washer and check the water temperature sensor and its connections, if that is fine then check the resistance of the heating element and the part that is bad should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water temperature sensor and its connections. If everything seems to be working fine then you’ll have to replace the water temp.sensor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

F 03 showing on machine


Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

Simpson encore 806 washing machine beeping and screen showing DF


DF means the temperature sensor is faulty. Replace it. Get a new one from your Simpson agent. Turn power off. Open panel by removing the 3 screws at the rear of panel & swing it up. If you are standing behind the machine look on the left hand side at the top of the circuit board. You will see a small white plug with 3 wires (red-white-black) Very carefully pull this plug toward you off the 3 pin base. The other end is the sensor pushed into the water inlet chamber. Pull it out. Push new sensor into water chamber (make sure black rubber o-ring is on it) Push wiring plug back onto 3 pin base. It can only go on one way. Do not force it or twist it as the 3 pins can be easily broken or damaged. Then close panel & power up.

Indesit WIE 147 - Display 'F-03' fault


Indesit washing machine error code 3 (F03) On certain Indesit washing machines, if the on off light is flashing 3 times, with a slight pause, followed by flashing a further 3 times, or if it is didplaying F03 you have an error code that is explained as follows -
NTC fault - check Thermistor and module connections.
The NTC is the thermistor, which is a modern-day thermostat. It’s inserted into a tube in the heating element and is filled with heat sensitive crystals that change their electrical resistance according to their temperature. By knowing what electrical resistance the crystals have at given temperatures they can tell the water temperature.
With this fault the NTC is either faulty, or there’s a dodgy connection to or from it or there’s a connection problem where it connects to the main PCB.
It’s not something you can easily fault find yourself unfortunately, apart from if there was an obvious broken wire.
