Question about Hotpoint WMA13 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Fitting new module

I have just replaced the control module on our washing machine. But I have had problems programming it, I have followed the instructions but it didn't seem to work. Now the machine as got some sort of programme but it doesn't seem to match what it should be, so it seems to be doing whatever it wants. I need to know how to cancel the programme and try to start the programming again. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks Andrew

Machine stops working and shows F09 what does this mean

Really need the make and model as different manufacturers use the same code to mean different things. Hotpoint/Indesit/Creda F09 on almost all appliances means "Eprom Fault" this is a problem with the main control chip and you will need an engineer to reprogram the main module or swap it out. If it's Bosch, then the good news is F09 means "Heater Fault" which almost certainly means a cheap £20 replacement heating element needs fitting

How do I program the module in an Indesit IWDC6125

indesit washing machines are only made to last just outside the guarentee period these days as the drums are sealed to stop you replacing the drum bearings. much better to buy a reconditioned Hotpoint wm62 they also wash much quicker than any new machine

Hai I have a hotpoint washing machine model WT761 and it has stopped working .the display is showing F-01.Kindly help me out please.

F01 error code indicates a fault in the motor triac.

This can be a fault in the motor and/or the main control board.

The service manuals suggests the following:-

Check for continuity of motor (Field coil pins 3-5 and armature pins 1-2);

Check efficiency of module connector block J9, motor terminal block and wiringbetween motor and edge connector J9;

Unplug the appliance.

Take the rear panel off.

The main board is bottom left when viewed from the rear.

Take the board out.

Take the plugs off and plug them on again to ensure they are clean, dry and tight fitting.

Check the circuit board for any obvious damage.

Check the motor plug and wiring.

If everything checks ok, I'm afraid you'll likely need a new board, possibly a motor too, and the board will need to be programmed to the appliance after fitting.

I have a Bosch WFL2061 - exactly 10 years old and worked perfectly everyday until yesterday. The problem started when we set the program and pressed the start button - it just made a 'ticking' sound...

Hi marc709, il start off by saying WOW! thats an awsome stint for a washer:) on a more sad note the ticking noise you can hear is most likely the power control module. Due to constant wash cycles and electrical switching the machine produces over the years can cause an electrical breakdown in the power supply. As much as id hate to say it mate your better off cutting ur losses now and buying a new or second hand recondition appliance as buying a new power control module would set you back the same amount in price as a new unit and even if you did find a power supply for a reasonable price, (murphy's law) replace a part and be prepared to replace something else, thumbs up if this helps thanks.

I have just changed the brown control board and now i have a fault code 9

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

You did not provide a make and model number so here is my best model to problem guess....

Your new control board is missing the size information.

AQUASMART-SIZE-SETTING. Size information must be programmed when a Motor Control Module or Display Module has been replaced. If the size is not set, the display will show fault code 9, or the water levels and wash actions will be incorrect. If the machine displays fault code 9, the machine must be switched off at the wall and then back on again before it can be sized.

Setting the size:

Unplug at the wall and then re-plug it in.

Press and hold Temp Up, then press Power. Wait for the 4 beeps, then set your machine size as follows to YOUR machine size:

5/5.5kg machines - press Temp Up. Cold led should light.
6/6.5kg machines - press Water Up. Low water led should light.
7/7.5kg machines - press Spin Speed up. Spin hold led should light.

Power off, try a programme.
Thanks for using FixYa!


From the Tech Sheet:

IWL12 and GWL 11 are different models. One of the two procedures will work for your machine.

The machine size must be set into the machine
memory if a Motor Controller or Display Module has
been changed.

To set the size:
1. Turn the power on at the power point and off
at the console.

2. IWL12 - Press and hold the FABRIC CARE
button, then press the POWER button. This
will present a set of options in the LCD
screen. The LCD screen has within it a
number of options. Push the Adjust button to
highlight the 650mm (L) machine size.
Pushing the POWER button will lock the size
into the module’s memory.

GWL11 – Press and hold the WASH TEMP
UP button then press the POWER button.
Press the SPIN SPEED UP button (the HOLD
LED should be on.)
3. Press the POWER button to return to normal

Washer won't spin correctly after fitting new bearings

there are no others sensors in the drum, the module (a circuit board) controls the actions of the timer, it may be one or so wires were disturbed at the time of repair, check all connections, any out of balance sensors would only work with a heavy loaded drum? You did not comment as to the motor / drum action when washing from the start of the cycle?
