This indicates a badly fitted plug, loose wire in the plug, or a bad socket, check for discolouration of the socket and plug.
Replace if any sign of discolouration or browning of plug and socket.

Got an error code f-12 washer will not start


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The decode for Hotpoint (Indesit) 'f12' is 'communications failure', and is often caused by poor contacts between plugs, cables and the control board. It sounds drastic but is as often cured by re-seating (unplugging and re-plugging) the plugs and cables. Sorry but unfortunately this entails an engineer call ;-0(
Sorry again and good luck,

Its showing f 12 on the display


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'F12' for Hotpoint washers decodes as 'no communication'- very helpful! Often the cause is poor contact between cables/plugs and modules (PCB and individual items). Probable cure is a service call and engineer re-seating the plugs/cables/connectors, sorry ;-0(
Good luck,

My hotpoint tumble dryer plug is very hot and making my socket hot to is it a fault with my dryer as scared incase it causes a fire .It is 2 years old.


It is normal for a plug to get slightly hot, but it is more likely to be a problem with the plug or the socket if it is getting excessively hot, and less likely to be a problem with the drier.
Firstly inspect the plug pins, are they discoloured? If so have the plug replaced.(You can cut the moulded plug off and fit a quality plug)
Try a different socket if you can.
I assume the drier is working normally, but you should not put excessively wet loads in the drier as it will be on for too long. Make sure the clothes are as dry as possible that will reduce the time the drier is on.
regards
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Check the power outlet, the plug and the cable or with the appropriate tester see if you have mains power where the power cable connects to the machine wiring.

I have a hotpoint aquarius tdc 30 conderser dryer. It gets hot and rotates the clothes, but they aren't drying. what's wrong?


Hi, Well if it is getting hot but not drying the clothes than most likely you have an airflow problem. Take off the vent hose on the back of the dryer. It will be plugged up with lint either inside that vent on the dryer or the hose will be plugged somewhere. If you clean this or just plain replace the old hose this will take care of the problem. Good Luck. feed back is appreciated.

Hot and/or cold fill


A dishwasher usually fills with hot only. Actually it will fill with whatever is connected to it.

My Hotpoint 960 is 18 months old and has develped a fault where the mains light and programmer display flicker simultaneously, and the machine cannot proceed through the programme. It does not respond to...


Flickering lights might just be caused by loose wires in the mains plug on the machine's power cable. I would suggest checking that first - for some reason the neutral wire seems more likely than the others to come loose. There might be brown / purple marks around the terminal inside the plug if this is the case. Also try replacing the mains fuse in the plug.

While you are there you might also try plugging a normal table lamp into the socket you use for the machine - if the house cabling to the socket is defective the lamp should flicker too.

If neither of these ideas is productive, the problem would appear to be within the machine, so please ask again. Good Luck D.
