Re: Hotpoint WF860

When the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself

Hotpoint wf860 flashing f-03


F-03 means that there is an heating system problem.

The heating system consists in the heater element and in a thermistor, located near to the element. The parts are located behind the panel at the back of the washer. Both element and thermostat can be tested using a mulitimeter to check if they have continuity (Ohms reading across part's terminals returns infinity).

Here a movie showing how to reach the heating element:

All lamps flashing and display flashing 888

You board behind the control panel is blown. This is caused by either a faulty door switch or the motor. Your model number tells me it’s most likely the door switch. The control board will need replacing and the door switch.

Getting to the board is easy only three screws near the soap draw. Make sure you write which wires go where and to get to the door lock undue the door rubber

Thank you for contacting

I need to replace a door seal, Hotpoint Ultima WF860

Push the top cover to the rear and lift at the same time, then ease the control panel to the right, you will not get control panel off with the top cover in place.

Door seal has two holes in it and leaking

You need to remove the front console panel and then the front panel to change the door seal.

Pull the dispenser drawer out and remove the screws.
Slide the console panel to the right and support it while you remove the rfont panel.
Change the seal, and reassemble in reverse order.

Good luck.
