The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.

It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.

The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.

The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.
A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.
When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.
If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.
This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.

NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.

If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.
As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

If you reply using the "Continue with this expert" option - I can assist you in ordering the correct part.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

What does f-01 mean on the hotpoinr washer


"Error F01" is indicating that the motor triac has short circuited on main PCB, this is part of the electronic speed control for the motor.You can do simple checks like motor connections/brushes etc.If the connections are seems to be perfect check the wiring whether it has continuity from motor to PCB. If there is no continuity then the PCB is faulty.
Hotpoint's advice is to call an engineer, it is not really a DIY repair, unless you have a good knowledge of electronics.

Thank you !!

It keeps coming up with F01 error when we start a load we turn it off and on a couple of times then it works and then it comes up again when rinse cycle comes on

" reset it : hold the 'start' button until all lights display, then press 'start' again. hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off. it doesnt always work 1st time so keep tryingater will leak into the gearcase shaft and ruin it
take the front panel off the bottom and the error code manual is inside. Mine says a ccu replacement for the F-01 code
