Hi I just had the same problem, and just fixed it !!! I firstly checked the sump which was clear, then the pump, again clear... when I took the top off the machine I noticed another black rubber hose coming from below the detergent draw into the drum , I needed to take filler unit off (leave the 2 small hoses on,just get it out of the way so you have room to move (take draw out and remove the 2 screws holding in). you will see one of the terrible plastic jubilee clip type things remove the top one only and this will release the filler unit totally, get a torch and look down the tube.............. and behold a childs sock !! obviously stopping water reaching the sump and water pressure was forcing it back up through the draw..... took me about one and a half hours but that included testing at each step.. Hope it helps Rich

Fault finding


Hotpoint wd860p washer/drier had fault code F08 come up on the display so took all the usual steps
1. Checked filter
2. Took top off machine checked all contacts
3. Circuit tested usual items
put onto cycle onto rinse and spin after rinse came up with fault code F08 again. Checked internet sites for solutions nothing matched the problem. So started again checking all usual items nothing seemed wrong whilst spending time looking over the machine I noticed the back edge of the weight block was damp? Unplugged the unit and I looked along the grey plastic condense hose which runs from water inlet supply to the heater unit for the drier and it had been rubbing on the drum causing 2 very small holes in the pipe!!!! So to test I pinched around the pipe sealing the holes with some blue tack and fixed in place with some insulation tape. Put it back on a cycle and all seems ok I can order a new pipe whilst the wife still uses the machine. It would appear most error codes are not specific to a particular problem... Typical of a money making scam for the service dept of the manufacturers ...!!!! Watch out ... Hope this is of some use...

OL error code


Hi jbrundage1. I believe you have a UL error code on the washer. It means that the sensors in the washer are sensing the unit is unbalanced. When the washer is empty, set it to a spin or rinse and spin setting. Run the washer through the cycle empty, as it will help to remove any excess water in the tub. Also, make sure the washer is level, as it is balanced on springs, and that could be throwing the sensors off. I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

I have a hotpoint ultima washing machine which has an f08 error code. The washing cycle finishes but the clothes are wet


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Ultima 'F08' normally means that there is a problem with the heater relay BUT your clothes still being wet makes me think that there could be water still left in the drum. This could be caused by a blocked filter/ drain motor so - no promises but it's worth carrying this out anyway to start! -

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Knocking noise on spin cycle


My machine did the same thing, I found it to be the heater element in the air box had come loose inside the casing and was hitting the sides of the air box. Removed air box from machine and resecured the element now all ok

Intuitive eco Iw811 Rinse 1 no water coming thru!


the 1st rinse light is normally set to "spray rinse", this means the machine will pump out the water, spin at medium speed then pulse cold water into the machine, this occurs for about 2 mins, then the machine will spin out, and advance for the final rinse which is a deep rinse.
