This indicates that the wash thermistor is "Open Circuit" and I think it is situated on the heater assy at the back of the machine.
Check the wiring and contacts between the thermistor and the PCB. If you still get the fault it could be the Thermistor ( which means replacing the heater ) or a faulty board.
If it is under 5 years old - Call Hotpoint as you have a 5 years Parts Guarantee mind you the call out is £89.98 but thats cheap if it happens to be the board!

I have exactly the same problem. Hoover Service Centre told me to tip a bucket of warm water into the drum and leave for 5 minutes before switching it back on. The idea is that the machine may be affected by the cold weather. Needless to say it made no difference and Error 11 remains - I am expecting an engineer on Thursday 23 I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

E08 means that the motor has failed (tachiometer error). Shut down your machine and disconnect power cord for five or ten minutes. If that is not enough to clear the code call the support number listed in your owner manual.

hi I had this fault, google said it was tachometer fault. the e08 fault on my hoover optima was not the tachometer, i checked it, but the fix was very easy, the motor brushes were worn out and i changed them for 10 quid, I made a video of it its on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYn-f78GB4U and it shows you how to test the tacho and how to change the brushes, hope this helps someone

Hi - Typically error code E08 on Electrolux models indicates that it is recommended for a professional to check the mist value on the motor. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the breaker to the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the dryer. If the error code does not clear and it is ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.
