Question about Washing Machines
Fault code appeared yesterday when arrived home. Did another wash, all OK until the end. End came up in the display briefly then fault code re-appeared. It was only on 800 spin so clothes not completely dry. Looked on Hotpoint website and they dont list an F 08 code. Rang Hotpoint this morning, no use at all after ages on hold. All they wanted was to get an engineer out! Machine is 5 1/2 years old so just out of warranty! Checked pump filter and removed 20 p piece. Thought that may be it. No fault still occurs. Looked on web for F 08 and get different replies, from heater & pressure switch. Had a look in machine, checked all wires, did notice a lot of carbon deposits underneath on the tiled floor. Blew down pressure switch tube all OK. Checked the drain hose from drum and can not feel anything in it. Ran a test 1200 spin. The machine appears to start to spin but does not get up to 'top' speed, it then slows and tries again until end of cycle. It then flashes F-08 and the pump continues to run for about 5 mins! Is it the motor or motor brushes?
