Front loader hotpoint wf840 running 'test' cant remember how to reboot. last time i had to do this i had to hold down one of the buttons for a few seconds and wait till a specific word came up on...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Here are the instructions to (just) clear the 'test' depending on the date code:-

Date code 39 March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39 March 2005 to date code 42 June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to norma
l
Date code 43 July 2005 onwards
Press both start/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.

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

My washer (hotpoint ultra silent wf840) is displaying f-08 on it's digital display, can anyone help please.


The meaning of F08 is that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated for some reason, this has the effect of stopping the water heater from working.
In order to resolve this the only thing you can do is to test the heater, and see if it is o/k.,if it is , then you there is not much else you can do, except call an engineer.

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Test


When it is turned on, press the On/Off button and the Start/Cancel button at the same time until the display reads "dOff". This worked for my washing machine after repeatedly displaying "Test" and doing nothing else.
