Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
Hi, My machine keeps taking in water and flashing F03. Can you tell me what the problem is please?
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).

"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 !!
