f-03 is a common problem with this machine.
The circuit board is situated very close to the bottom of the machine and also very close to the motor.
When the machine vibrates it can cause the circuit board to come away from the side mountings and gets struck by the motor. Mine did this and ended up cutting through the wires to the PCB. not good. cost me £125 for new PCB and had to re-wire. but this gave me the fault code F-03

What does the error code F-03 mean?


F03 error code means that the wash thermistor is "Open Circuit" genetally, this is located on the heater assy at the back of the machine.

Check the wiring and contacts between the thermistor and the PCB. If you still get the fault it could be the Thermistor ( which means replacing the heater ) or a faulty board. If it is under 5 years old - Call Hotpoint as you have a 5 years Parts Guaranteed.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hotpoint ultima washing machine is showing a fault


F 05 normally means there is a blockage or a fault with the pressure sensor. The common place for blockage is in the black pipe from the drum to the pump as it has a filter in here and clogs up. remove the pipe and clean the filter out and remove gunk from the pressure sensor on the side of the pipe as well. If that does not fix things the pressure switch could be faulty itself

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.

HOTPOINT ULTIMA SUPER SILENT ( WF 860 ) 1600 SPIN SPEED.


I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
