Re: machine fault code "f13"

Plug off the wall. There is a thin rubber tube going from the switch area to the exit near the outlet tube. Probably this is blocked. This tube should be free from any blockage; take out the top clip from this tube and blow into it - it should be free, clear the blockage if any and refit. This is the water level tube which tells the machine when to switch off water, etc.....

Why is my indesit washing machine displaying H20 and not opening

• The water container must be emptied? The "Empty water container" indicator light flashes and the message appears "H2O" (see Maintenance).

The error indicates a problem with the incoming water supply.
Check for restricted or kinked inlet hose/s, check that tap/s are fully turned on and that you have adequate water pressure.

My hotpoint washing machine will not wash and is flashing h20?

H20 is a fill fault. check water taps are turned on, inlet hoses are not kinked. if ok then a possible fault with the inlet valve(s).

Hi there,

This error means - Problem is in the inlet valve.
Your inlet valve at behind top of machine is defective or the pressure from your faucet is insufficient.
Close your faucet valve on wall & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. See that the water pressure is good. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem then you need to change inlet valve.

Good Luck!!

Flashing H20

h20 means no water is getting to the machine. check your washing machine taps are on and water getting to the machine and the fill hose is not kinked.
