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).

Hi,

"F03" fault code indicates that the wash thermistor is open/short circuited .Thermistor is inserted into a tube in the heating element and is filled with heat sensitive crystals that change their electrical resistance according to the temperature. This error also indicates a poor connection to the main PCB. It is high time to call a service person to replace the thermostat in your unit.
Thank you !!

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. By error F03 in Hotpoint washer we mean that the thermistor is open. This will not let the water to heat or in rear cases will boil the water to extreme temperatures. You’ll need to replace the thermistor to resolve this issue. The thermistor is located in the motor control unit. Also check the element if its open circuit, you’ll get a reading of 1.5-1.8K ohms on the multimeter, if not then element is bad. The element is also located in the motor control unit. You can check them by removing lower rear panel.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


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 1200 series wont work.


F03 indicates that the wash thermistor is open or short circuit, the thermistor is part of the heater element. you need to test the heater and thermistor, and possibly replace.
Indesit recommend that you call an engineer, but it can be done by some one who is competent enough.
Unplug before you do anything to it.
Plz leave feedback.
Thanks

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.
