Wf860p test mode faulty module

Many thanks to all who answer this but i have tried all the above to no avail, there is no burn marks or signs on any parts of the board, i have tested the motor / heater / solenoids / pump / pressure switch etc, like i said earlier i am a retired appliance engineer of 20 years experience but not come across this fault and embarrassing as it is it is my machine, i don't have Hotpoint's test equipment and Hotpoint are not helpful, i do have the ability to correct the fault once told where to look (have i missed something) signed Mick

Re: wf860p test mode faulty module

Mick, I faced a problem like that in the past and finaly I was lucky and found out that the problem was a "cold soldering" on the board. Good luck!

No power to washing maching

Hi just read your post.Could be a couple of things wrong with your machine.The computer will not power up if 1- the drain pump is faulty or 2- the control board is faulty..Is the machine full of water? Are you able to test the unit with an electrical meter? Did you smell any burning smell from the machine? Please reply with answers to the questions and I will try my best to help you.Regards LU.

The appliance does nothing when set at start.

Good day,
1. Unplug machine and plug a known good device into outlet to make sure you have power.
2. Advance timer into spin mode and turn on. If it spins, then it is usually the water level switch. That part starts the whole cycle.
3. Set the water fill selector to warm to make sure it is not just one side of the water valve bad.
4. If no luck with above, and there is power to the timer ( you will need a volt meter to test it) then it sounds like a dead timer.

Program keeps going round and round without washing or rinsing

the machine you have does give problems with the module and they can be expensive to replace. It might not be the module however. your machine does a self test diagnostic upon startup, it checks every component and if it detects a faulty part, the result is that it just clicks around back to the stop position. this is not a repair that you would be able to carry out yourself unfortunatly. most commonly however, the brushes may need to be replaced, this you could do yourself though. UNPLUG the machine from the wall, put the machine on its side(soapbox side on the floor IMPORTANT) and remove the carbons(brushes) from the motor, if they are worn, they will be very short in length and the surface of either one or both will have a burned black mark, they should be shiny, this is the part that makes contact with the motor.
replacing these, if they are worn, will solve your problem, but if they are not the case, you will need to call out an engineer im afraid.

Whirlpool Duet dryer - "burn marks", "out of round" drum

It's not really BURN marks - it is the adhesive used to affix the felt. You can substitute for silicone to remedy this problem.

I have an F8 fault on my hotpoint wf860p machine....any ideas?

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit


F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.

Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.

If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

Wf860p computer control automatic

I have had this problem it is caused by accidentally pressing both the on and start button together. It puts the machine into demo mode. You need to press both the buttons together again for about 30 seconds. If it doesn't work first time switch the machine off and do it again. Sometimes you have to do this many times before it works but eventually it does work.
Very frustrating.
I found the cause was either leaning on the front of the machine or resting a broom which when you pick it up accidentally presses the two buttons.
