Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Hotpoint wd860p washer/drier had fault code F08 come up on the display so took all the usual steps
1. Checked filter
2. Took top off machine checked all contacts
3. Circuit tested usual items
put onto cycle onto rinse and spin after rinse came up with fault code F08 again. Checked internet sites for solutions nothing matched the problem. So started again checking all usual items nothing seemed wrong whilst spending time looking over the machine I noticed the back edge of the weight block was damp? Unplugged the unit and I looked along the grey plastic condense hose which runs from water inlet supply to the heater unit for the drier and it had been rubbing on the drum causing 2 very small holes in the pipe!!!! So to test I pinched around the pipe sealing the holes with some blue tack and fixed in place with some insulation tape. Put it back on a cycle and all seems ok I can order a new pipe whilst the wife still uses the machine. It would appear most error codes are not specific to a particular problem... Typical of a money making scam for the service dept of the manufacturers ...!!!! Watch out ... Hope this is of some use...
