Hotpoint Ultima WT721 F 08 fault code


Try the brushes first. I'm guessing the carbon deposits on the floor are from the brushes.

Hotpoint ultima wt721. Cycle runs then stops at drain/pump out with alert code f - 05


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Hotpoint (Indesit!) F05 decodes as 'pump block'.
I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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!) and most 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!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hotpoint ultima error code f5


Fault code f05 is a drainage problem or pressure switch stuck on full.
If your machine is full of water, unplug it from the wall socket. Drag the machine out and lower the drain hose into a wash basin. Raise the hose to stop the flow of water. Repeat the draining process until you get no more water coming out.
Now take the rear panel off, check the pump hasn't burned out, use a multimeter to test if it's open circuit and check the wires to it aren't broken.
If all ok there, take the hose off the bottom of the tub and clear out any debris in there.
If this doesn't work, repeat draining it and this time take the pump out and make sure there's nothing there stopping the pump running.

If there is no water in the machine, take the lid off, locate the pressure switch and take the small bore tube off it, blow down the tube to ensure there is no blockage. Give the pressure switch a tap and try again.

Hotpoint ultima wt721 error code fo2 showing! will not work properly!


Error code F02 means the motor has jammed, and or the tacho is loose or broken. .Check the motor hasn't jammed up somehow, or that the small tacho coil on the end of the motor hasn't dropped off (tip the machine back and it's in between the brushes - it should be held in place with a clip. If it's hanging loose it's the fault)

This fault code basically means the PCB cannot detect any impulses from the tacho coil on the motor, so the main implication is that the motor is just not running. However, because other fault codes cover most of the other motor faults, the PCB thinks the motor may be physically jammed. That is, as far as the PCB is concerned, it is supplying the motor with power, but it can't detect the motor is running. This fault is not caused by worn carbon brushes because on these washing machines, an open circuit on the motor causes the washing machine to do nothing at all. It would not fill, or empty (as well as the motor wouldn't run) although the indicator lights would work.
