The machine write F15, wath is the problem?


On some machines this is a drainage code, check the drain filter on the bottom of the machine. You can Google the term F15 with the make and model of your washer to look at websites with the correct codes.

Hotpoint ultima ctd 80 f15 error code


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston) 'F15' states 'drainage problem'.

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hotpoint WT741 is full with washing and water and showing a red F05 light. The washing machine door is locked and will not open for me to let the water out. What do I do? Many thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'F05' means 'blocked (drain) pump' (or more likely blocked filter!)

I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My machine has stopped working..I need to drain the water out...where will the drain pipe be on WT741 Hotpoint please...Thank you


The drain outlet hose is located at the bottom rear left of washer.
Once you have got the water out, I suggest you check the pump filter.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose from bottom of drum at right side.
Clean filter inside the hose.
Remove black hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint wt741


In most machines the filter is located under the panel in the bottom of the machine (the panel under the front door).
If u have manual refer; pull the panel out and you will find the filter there.

Before you open the filter keep a bowl & cloth to collect much water.
