For what it is worth my WE16 often stops with an F-02 display within 3 minutes of starting, but only in summer months. Powering off and restarting usually cures it, and it will then go on to run several loads without problem. I keep the machine in my cellar boiler room, and attribute the problem to high humidity when the boiler is not running. Changing the PCB does not cure the problem, nor does protecting it against humidity (eg poly bad and silica gel). I conclude that moisture getting somewhere unexpected (tacho perhaps?) can cause this error.

Motor rotational speed is not satisfying tacho. Could be motor brushes worn (quite easy to check from underneath machine WITH POWER OFF, using crosshead screwdriver, 15mm minimun length), motor or drum bearings seizing, motor windings going down, faulty tacho or speed contoller circuitboard.

According to info on a similar site to this, it means motor jammed/tacho faulty or detatched

I have an f-02 fault code on my indesit evolution 1200 we12 wasing you know what this means? Julie

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In my lists Indesit's 'F02' stands for 'motor jammed/ tacho problem, check leads' meaning that it is requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
