Re: hotpoint wd645 flashing f-08
The manual says F08 - Heater relay cannot be activated.The dryer might be having difficulty with this.It is not something that can be fixed.Heater Relay equipment might be damaged.Might have to call a repairman to set this right.Good luck.Do post comments for more help.

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.
Try the plug in another socket that you know is o/k, if still no go ,then you need to remove top cover and rear panel, and check all connectins to control module/s.
Make sure the door is fully catch is fully engaged, as sometimes the spring can give out in the door handle.
After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.
