Hotpoint WF865 Washing Machine Generally Louder Than When New.

We have a Hotpoint WF865 Ultima 'Super Silent' washing machine. It's about 4 years old now.

When we first bought it, I remember remarking that it was quieter thank our microwave when on full spin. This is no longer the case and it is now difficult to hold a telephone conversation when you're in the same room.

There are no noticable banging, whirring or scraping noises that you might associate with items getting stuck or faulty bearings. It's just generally louder at doing the spinning.

I did wonder if there was any way or increasing the tension on the drum so that it can't wobble as much. Maybe the noise comes from excessive play on it's suspension.

Any ideas?

Hotpoint Ultima Super Silent WF865. I'm getting error code F04 there's water in the machine and it's stopped.


Error code F04 indicates pressure switch jammed on empty.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the plastic filter inside hose.
Remove the hose onto the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here.
This should clear the fault
please leave feedback for my solution.
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.

Door does not lock shut but machine still works. Is it easy to repair?


Exactly the same happened to our Hotpoint FWD70. The spring that holds the door latch in place has snapped. I removed all screws out of the door to find the spring and the metal rod it hooks onto and bend another hook into it (I didn't have a replacement spring), put it back together and the door works fine, although for some reason the dishwasher tablet doesn't release now!!
