Hi there,

F08 indicates "Heater Relay stuck or Pressure Switch stuck on full".
You'll need a multimeter to be able to carry out some checks.
Check the heater for continuity, you should get a reading of around 25 ohms.
Check the pressure switch connections on the main pcb, usually J3
Check the pressure switch wiring and connections.
Chek the wiring at the heater for internal breaks. (The wire looks ok but when pulled snaps easily).
Check the pressure tube and chamber.
Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the lid off and locate the pressure switch.
Take off the thin tube attached to it and blow down the tube to try and clear any restrictions in the pressure hose or chamber.
Refit the tube and try the machine again.
If everything checks out ok, it would suggest that the main pcb will require replacing and the software written to it.

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:

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

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.
