Error code F04 indicates pressure switch jammed on empty.
to rectify, do the following
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on drum
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.

This probably happens after the main wash has completed and it is just finishing the first rinse.
It seems to be a warning that there is a partial blockage on the waste outflow.
Empty the wash and use the DRAIN program to get as much water out as possible.
From the FRONT of the machine open the lower flap and and then put a large towel on the floor.
Unscrew the big black filter cover slowly - some water will come out -about a cupful.
Ensuring the machine is turned off, use a cloth to remove any obvious build up of "gunk". Would suggest using an old toothbrush to clean off the surface and the plug.
99% of the time - Job Done!
You may have a blockage in your waste pipe. (If using an extension check any coupling has not "bunged up".
Last, check your waste pipe / grey water connection. Again, this "should" be fine, but it may be bunged up, especially if it feeds into the sink outflow.
Stick back together, plug in and use the 11, fast wash option in cold. Should now be happy, and you should hear water gurgling away noisily down the waste.
Always worth doing a 2 - 90 extra hot wash once in a while even EMPTY of washing just to "flush the system" now and again.
Hope this helps and saves you a £104 service engineer call from indesit :)

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
