Question about Washing Machines
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.
