This indicates that the wash thermistor is "Open Circuit" and I think it is situated on the heater assy at the back of the machine.

Check the wiring and contacts between the thermistor and the PCB. If you still get the fault it could be the Thermistor ( which means replacing the heater ) or a faulty board.
If it is under 5 years old - Call Hotpoint as you have a 5 years Parts Guarantee mind you the call out is £89.98 but thats cheap if it happens to be the board!

F 03 showing on machine


Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

Front load frigidaire washer w/ error code F03....doesnt want to drain. Tried spin/drain, delicates, and normal and all end up with F03!! Please help!!! Thanks Royce


The F03 code is a problem with your water system. your inlet valves may have failed.

Open up the bottom panel and you will find a tech sheet that explain the codes and gives trouble shooting techniques. here is the service manual, good luck, hope this helps......

My front load Kenmore washer has a f03 code on the screen. It is not draining the water and it is not doing a max spin. What do you think I need to do?


F03 error code means that there is either fill problem, a drain problem or a water level pressure switch failure .

First ensure the machine is filling.
When the drain system is causing the F03 error do the following.

Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the drain hose is OK check the drain pump.

Start unplugging washer from main and remove the service panel at the bottom.

Follow the instructions on manual to remove panel.

Access the water pump and remove the hoses, clear any blockage in there.

Use a container to collect the water, be prepared. If machine has lot of water inside, remove some water with a sponge before undoing the pump.

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.

F03


Good morning.
Error code F03 means that the wash thermistor is open circuit, this means that the water is not getting hot.
You need to fit a new thermistor first of all, if that does not solve the prob, then you will have to fit a new heater element as well.
You will normally find the element and thermistor located at the rear of the m/c.
Access it by removing lower rear panel
To get the parts, go to-----www.hotpoint.co.uk
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The error code F03 indicates a problem with the pump out of the washer or a failure of the pressure switch that controls the water fill. This is a problem that you should have a technician diagnose and repair.

Good Luck

Indesit WIE 147 - Display 'F-03' fault


Indesit washing machine error code 3 (F03) On certain Indesit washing machines, if the on off light is flashing 3 times, with a slight pause, followed by flashing a further 3 times, or if it is didplaying F03 you have an error code that is explained as follows -
NTC fault - check Thermistor and module connections.
The NTC is the thermistor, which is a modern-day thermostat. It’s inserted into a tube in the heating element and is filled with heat sensitive crystals that change their electrical resistance according to their temperature. By knowing what electrical resistance the crystals have at given temperatures they can tell the water temperature.
With this fault the NTC is either faulty, or there’s a dodgy connection to or from it or there’s a connection problem where it connects to the main PCB.
It’s not something you can easily fault find yourself unfortunately, apart from if there was an obvious broken wire.
