F10 means that the pressure switch (water level switch) is not sensing the correct water level.
This can be for one of several reasons.
Firstly ,clean filter, if no filter at front behind bottom panel ,then remove lower rear panel, remove large black hose from bottom of tub, remove and clean filter inside..
Detach pressure switch hose attached to plastic chamber which comes from large black hose, this is a small plastic hose, blow down it , and you should hear the switch click if you listen carefully.
If you cannot hear it click, then switch is probably faulty, follow hose to switch.
Make sure the plastic chamber is not blocked where the hose is attached at bottom end.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Dyson fault 'F10' decodes as 'overspeed, motor triac failure'.
Sorry but that means an engineer call ;-0(

Although it is bad news, if this has clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My Hotpoint Ultima keeps displaying an F10 fault and doesnt spin correctly. However, if I then switch it to a rinse and spin cycle it seems to spin OK.


F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

Spinning stop and flashes 10


Fault code F10 means the motor is overheating. You may have a failing transmission or corroded wiring. Or the motor may just be failing. Start by trying to run smaller loads and see if this still happens.

"F/10" Motor Control Unit (MCU) Heat Sink Thermal Trip
If the thermal protector on the MCU heat sink gets too hot, it will open the thermal protector on the heat sink which will stop motor functions and an "F/10" will be displayed.
  • Check for Proper Installation, verify the unit is not located near a source of heat and has proper ventilation.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  • Check MCU
  • Check Motor

Wf860 Error Code: F10


hiya
this could be caused by a faulty pressure switch (controls water levels). but due to the machine sharing the same electrical components as indesit it could be a fault on the main pcb.

Hotpoint Ultima W860


hi there f10 fault code means pressure switch not sensing,
this could be to do with low water pressure or a bad connection on the pressure switch or control module which is located at the back left hand corner of the machine, remove backplate to gain access and remake all connections on module, if this should not resolve the fault i would be looking to replace the pressure first part no= C00112659 cost about £15

ps. always disconnect from mains before carrying out any work
