Power off. Check the pressure switch - a round item about 3 inches across with several wires connected, it sits under the top cover. Its an air operated switch which tells the machine water has reached the correct level. Disconnect the thin rubber pipe from the switch and blow down through it to clear any blockage. Switch itself may be faulty but its more likely the pipe is blocked.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter will be seen. Its a circular fitting which generally unscrews in an anticlockwise direction.

These codes are the sickness of these hotpoint machines. I have exhausted so much time diagnosing them. I don't remember the codes anymore, but I remember using the manual to see what the code means, and see if indeed it was the problem. It all came down to getting a new electronic circuit board for these machine. Being an electronic technician it is easy for me to determine that indeed the electronic controls is the problem. This should be a recall on these machine. It seem that the electronic controls malfunction right after the warranty expires. I know one thing I will never buy one of these machines after working on them because I will go as far as read the program in that chip and see what they put in there. A programmable chip can be programmed to do something months later. They all seem to have the same problem of displaying codes later in its usefull life. A technician will do the same thing as order the circuit board. Heck you can replace that yourself it is not even hard to replace at all. The problem is the electronic circuit, and needs replacing.

My washer (hotpoint ultra silent wf840) is displaying f-08 on it's digital display, can anyone help please.


The meaning of F08 is that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated for some reason, this has the effect of stopping the water heater from working.
In order to resolve this the only thing you can do is to test the heater, and see if it is o/k.,if it is , then you there is not much else you can do, except call an engineer.

I have a hotpoint wf840 washing machine (6 years old) and the wash program will not complete the drum turns but will not advance to the end or spin and on the front facia it states f-08 what does tis mean


F08 means you have a heater fault and in this case because the water isnt getting hot the program wont advance. Check out the heater and related wiring. If you dont already know the heater is at the rear of the machine. For more information about error codes go to www.selfix-uk.co.uk

Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Undo and remove the wide tapering pipe from the bottom of the drum to the pump. Inside you will find a non return ball valve, clean this and your problem should be solved

H20 ERROR


Hi there,

This error means - Problem is in the inlet valve.
Your inlet valve at behind top of machine is defective or the pressure from your faucet is insufficient.
Close your faucet valve on wall & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. See that the water pressure is good. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem then you need to change inlet valve.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Do you have your hot and cold water turned on? Is there enough water pressure? Are there any kinks in the hose? Check also the inlets (with the hoses off), for any clogs or blockage into the washer
