Not sure about the f04 code but if its still full of water try putting the washer onto a drain cycle if the water does not drain then your pump is either blocked or faulty to check if its faulty pull the washer outnow take the drain hose and place into a bucket low to the floor if it comes straight out then the pump is faulty what it is is they have a magnectic part which goes down if the water doesnt come out its blocked you will have to take the washer outside tip it backwards but dont put it on its back now undue the sump hose which is situated in the centre of the drum pull it the water will drain out now undue the 2screws under the pump pull out undue the pipes you should see the blockedge if not could be in the drain hose itself m8 let me know how you go on if the pump needs replacing shouldnt cost no more than £20

The most likely cause is the sump filter blocked it is located in the bottom hose under drum.

Machine stopped mid cycle with water still inside and the panel is saying FO/5

F05 means you have a pressure switch fault, check the pressure chamber or pipe also the wiring from the switch. For more Hotpoint, Creda or Idesit error code definitions use this link

To fix, hold the Start Button in until it completes the full cycle about 3 mins. It should say end or something similar then start as normal.

Machine fills with water then stops with H2O flashing in the display

I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
