Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
I have worked on one of these digital, electronic control washing machine. Now I am an experienced electronic technician, I have concluded that recuring codes in these machine, whatever the code is, a problem with the electronic circuit itself. I have exhausted everything I knew, and it all came down to trying to fix the board itself. It all came down to ordering the electronic controls. These are always a problem with poor electronic design. I looked carefully at the circuit, and it doesn't even have a surge protection varactor in there! The new one that came in I did put one to protect the electronic circuit from power surge, and never had problem since, and its been over a year now.

The F08 code is "Heater realy stuck or pressure switch jammed on full".
You may have 2 faults here.
The first is a blockage.
On the front below the door there is a kick plate, remove this and see if there is a filter there. If there is, put a couple of towels down and remove the filter. Any water in the machine will run out so be prepared. Clean out the debris and try the machine again.
If there is no filter, unplug the appliance from the wall socket, pull the machine out and remove the panel on the rear. Look in and remove the hose you see on the bottom of the tub, in there you'll find what's causing the blockage.
You need a multimeter to carry out some of the tests.
Check wash heater for continuity, normally around 25 ohms.
Check the connections to the pcb are clean and tight.
Check the pressure chamber and tube to the pressure switch clear and clear. still failing it's likely to be a pcb fault.
Hope This helps. please rate my answer.
