How can i fix my hotpoint wt940 with F-01

Hi Hayley,

Please help us help you. Expand on what is working and what is not. SO please add to your comments and repost.

First things first. Water is always a hazard with electricity. Please turn of the power source to your machine and do a fine cleanup, Take canister vacuum and get the hard reach places. A large box fan will help dry the machine and the floor. Pull the machine away from the wall. If possible lift the top off the machine to allow air flow and a panel cover for examination. a hair dryer can be used to dry electronic components in the event of an overload. Give it a chance.

If the machine restarts and is faulting. Here is a link to diagnose the coding Error Codes Hotpoint Service

F01 - Short circuit motor triac*

Here is a place for an online repair manual Free Online HOTPOINT Washing Machine Repair Manual

Here is the Hotpoint manual conversion site Download Manual Hotpoint Service

It appears you may need a new module if the cleanup does not clear out the code

Fare. Well.

Hi I have a Hotpoint WM D940G washing machine and after selecting the wash cycle needed nothing is happening. Then after a short time it is saying on the display No water check the supply if you then...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
For most Indesit (Hotpoint and Ariston) models 'F01' often refers to the 'motor triac- check connections' but for a number of faults apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause so try this/these first. If you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you appear to be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

What does a fault F01 signify on a Hotpoint Ultima 7kg washing machine?

Error code F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac.
Thoroughly check all connections on the motor, the motor plug, and the electronic module board..
Look for a broken wire, or a bad connection.

Error message F-01 & flashing lights etc I have a Hotpoint aquarius, WMF740. Suddenly returning to the kitchen I noticed an error message - the machine was switched off - which says F-01 and flashes...

Error code F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac.
You need to check connections on the motor, the motor plug and the module.
Having said that, you really should ring the manufacture, as the washer is still obviously under guarantee, and should be fixed at no cost to you.
The point to bear in mind is that if you do anything to it yourself, then in theory, you could invalidate the guarantee.
So, unless it is anything obvious, then I would advise you ring the manufacturer.
Hope this is of assistance to you.
Please rate my solution.

F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac, this is part of the motor speed control, either in the motor, or the control unit, and as such is something you cannot repair yourself.
It means that you will have to call hotpoint unfortunately.
If it is under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it done under the 5 year guarantee.
Plz rate my solution.

Error code f08 on Wt940 ultima.

not sure if this will help but try:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS
Comment by pulmicort, posted on Feb 02, 2008 Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.
