Re: Hotpoint Ultima W860

Hi there f10 fault code means pressure switch not sensing,
this could be to do with low water pressure or a bad connection on the pressure switch or control module which is located at the back left hand corner of the machine, remove backplate to gain access and remake all connections on module, if this should not resolve the fault i would be looking to replace the pressure first part no= C00112659 cost about £15

ps. always disconnect from mains before carrying out any work

I have a hotpoint ultima WT741 flashing F-10 can you tell me the problem please


F10 is a pressure switch not sensing error. Basically its a filling problem.
What you need to do is make sure the fill hose isn't kinked up at the back stopping it from filling fast enough.

If the hose is OK then take off the fill hose and aim it into a bucket and turn the water tap on. Then from there see what the water pressure is like there.

If its weak then you need the water pressure sorting out.

If the pressure is fine then you will need a multimeter and test the water valves on top and see if any of them are faulty.

But the F10 error code is a filling issue.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi F10 means no fill Check cold tap is turned on and there is water to the machine.if water is ok it gets a bit more technical it could be a faulty water valve coil or pressure switch.Check the water supply first slacken the fill hose a bit on the back of the washing machine and see if there is any water pressure thats a good start .

My Hotpoint Ultima keeps displaying an F10 fault and doesnt spin correctly. However, if I then switch it to a rinse and spin cycle it seems to spin OK.

F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

Wf840 f10 error code get worse

F10 is indicating 2 possible probs with your m/c.
1-interrmittent cold water supply, check pressure and hose.
2-water level switch not sensing correctly, possibly sticking or partially blocked.
Hotpoint recommend calling an engineer for a pressure switch prob. but there callout is £90.00!!!!!.
Plz rate my solution.

f05 is a drainage problem, ther may be something stuck in your pump.
its in the back of the machine in the corner. take the side hose off and unclip the pump from machine and look in to see the propellor may have foriegn object in.

Hello john walker24

You said, you have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 Washier dryer model WD71s and keep getting an E30 error code after it fills with water.
Any idea what the problem is?

This is what Hotpoint tells us!
E30 = A motor drive problem has occurred.Try running the programme again.
If the problem persists call for a Service Engineer.

BUT, I will tell you to unplug the appliance for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system and solves the error code.
Sometimes it is only a glitch and you can reboot and be alright if there is really no mechanical failure!!
Let me know how it goes?
Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You.
Waiting for your response!

Wf860 Error Code: F10

this could be caused by a faulty pressure switch (controls water levels). but due to the machine sharing the same electrical components as indesit it could be a fault on the main pcb.

hope this helps

Hotpoint ultima tumble dryer error code f-03

i have a hotpoint ultima ctd80 which i have had the last 2 years, it has shown error codes f11, f10 and f15, every time i fix this problem by first switching off and unplugging appliance then removing small cover from back (middle with 2 screws) then larger panel that the smaller panel overlapped. once you remove these you will see the heating elements, remove the 2 screws at the back off this, remove cover carefully then at the top you will see two things (not very technical lol i am a woman), with a pin press the pin in the one with a hole, mine makes a clicking sound when i do it, not sure if it meant to but works for me. put all parts back together and thats the job done. make sure both fillters and water emptied regular, hope this helps and saves you a fortune on call outs
