Ive just had the same problem on my ultima WT640 1400 spin. Had f-01 code, used this website and turned off for less than 5 mins. Just trying out a final spin which will take 15 mins, all is well at the moment.

Had the same problem (after owning the machine for all of ten minutes!) - rang Hotpoint and they said it's some sort of error with the computer software, best way to fix it is to unplug the machine for 10 mins and then start up again, it should resolve itself. Nothing to do with a short circuit as that table of error codes indicates - the machine just needs to reset.

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.

Washing machine is flashing f01

F01 is an Electronic circuit board fault
I recommend you disconnect (unplug) the appliance from the mains supply for a minimum of 2 minutes. Reconnect supply and wait 30 seconds and try starting the machine again.

Error f01 flashing on machine

F01 on a Washer Dryer means you have a motor fault.
I suggest check the motor and associated wiring. You may just have a broken wire.

Hope this helps.
