F08 is for the heater relay on your washer. You can try unplugging the washer for a half hour and see if that will clear the error up.

    We tried that a few times, but after the f-08 error shows, it now trips the electrics out in the house,
    so something is definatly amiss,

    Ok, on the back there is the plate that covers the power cord terminal. Open the panel and look to see if one of the wires are loose or if one is touching the other. Make SURE to have the dryer unplugged before doing so.

    Thanks for that info richroth, the mains is intact, but as it enters the washing machine, its first port of call is something that resembles a relay...(Procond Electrics 444622431) then a plug with the 3 wires (which are also intact) comes from that and goes off elsewhere into the machine.
    Thanks

My washer (hotpoint ultra silent wf840) is displaying f-08 on it's digital display, can anyone help please.


The meaning of F08 is that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated for some reason, this has the effect of stopping the water heater from working.
In order to resolve this the only thing you can do is to test the heater, and see if it is o/k.,if it is , then you there is not much else you can do, except call an engineer.

I have a hotpoint wf840 washing machine (6 years old) and the wash program will not complete the drum turns but will not advance to the end or spin and on the front facia it states f-08 what does tis mean


F08 means you have a heater fault and in this case because the water isnt getting hot the program wont advance. Check out the heater and related wiring. If you dont already know the heater is at the rear of the machine. For more information about error codes go to www.selfix-uk.co.uk

Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Undo and remove the wide tapering pipe from the bottom of the drum to the pump. Inside you will find a non return ball valve, clean this and your problem should be solved

H20 ERROR


Hi there,

This error means - Problem is in the inlet valve.
Your inlet valve at behind top of machine is defective or the pressure from your faucet is insufficient.
Close your faucet valve on wall & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. See that the water pressure is good. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem then you need to change inlet valve.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
