F8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit

THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY

F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.



Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.



If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

Error code F08 FLASHING WILL NOT SPIN


The pressure switch is stuck and the machine thinks it is full of water. You need to remove the top, look for the pressure switch and unplug the hose on it and blow air through the hose. Then replace the hose on the switch. It looks like this: http://www.yourspares.co.uk/parts/hotpoint/washing-machines/wt960p/parts/ys56011/hotpoint-wt960p-pressure-switch-spares-C00194160.aspx

My hotpoint WD640 is flashing F08 error message. What do I need to do to fix it? Thanks N


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For most Hotpoint (and other named) models 'F08' means 'heater relay (possibly) stuck'. 'Check power supply connections to the heater, wiring and module (i.e. PCB) connections' (apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause)

So- if you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you may be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)

Sorry we cannot be of more help!

Good luck, John C

Hi I have a hotpoint wf630 washing machine and it keeps flashing error codes f08. Could you tell me what this codes means. many thanks, Stuart


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Most Hotpoint, Ariston and Indesit (who make the other two) use similar fault codes. Although I cannot confirm it on your particular machine, f08 means there is a problem with the heater/its relay/its control. Often a cure is to re-seat the cables/wiring to and from these items.
REMOVE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANYTHING OF COURSE.
Good luck,

John C

What does "f08" mean on


The error F08 indicates that the heater relay is stuck. This could be a fault with either the pressure switch, heater or the module connections.
Think you need to book a service call from engineer.

Washing machine flashing f-02 f-08 hotpoint aquarius


F02 and F08 are 2 completely unrelated problems.
F02 indicates motor problem, and F08 indicates a problem with the heater circuit, the relay is not energising, possibly due to a faulty heater or themistor.
Would advise you call a qualified repair technician.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

F8 flashing as about to spin on every programme


F08 is a heater fault so although you may feel the machine has washed it probably has'nt.Check the heater, pressure switch and module for lose or brocken wires.
