SOURCE: what does f12 mean on

Hi, I think the F12 Error means lack of water or water turned off, check that first, if water is turned on then turn it off disconnect the hose from the machine, then hold the hose in a bucket and gently turn on the hose tap to check if water does flow, if it does check the valve on the back of the machine, there is usually a small filter in there that can get blocked, these can be pulled out by a small tab on top of the filter using a pair of pliers, clean it and then put it back in reconnect the hose and turn the water back on, try the machine again, if its still the same it could be a faulty water valve that will need replacing.

There is another reason F12 could appear which is a faulty PCB or wiring harness fault, but generally the above should be checked first.

Here's a picture below showing an example of the valve with the filter in blue, you might just be able to see the tab on the filter.

SOURCE: my power tripped the other

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(If no one else answers here is how to obtain a manual!)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

It keeps coming up h20 on lcd screen


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(Quote)
Error code H20
If the machine is not in the demo mode and this error is displayed it means there is no water being supplied to the machine.
To cancel press and hold start/cancel then press again to cancel the drain and the machine should now be reset and display 'ON' as usual.

If your machine IS in demo mode come back to me and I will tell you how to get back to normal mode - it's too long to put in this solution ;-0)

My Hotpoint Aqualtis AQXXD 169 PM is adding time to the was cycle, taking longer to wash through the cycle? ant ideas?


the time is a generic time and will adjust accordingly as goes through programe-for example it allows a certain time to heat in the winter your cold supply may be colder so the machine needs longer to heat water-load size-if its adding more than 30 mins then check filter

How do you turn off demo mode on hotpoint ultima dishwasher


Hello leedowns1,

You can take it out of demo mode by pressing the "on/off " and "start/reset" button together until "d of" appears. Hope this fixes your problem.

Aqualtis AQGD 169 S F12 problem Please help :-(


ok, I have just had the 'blocked pump message and after much playing around I have solved it.

Pull the machine out and take the drain out and place in a bucket. Then tilt the machine on its side about 30 to 45 degrees so you can get a hand underneath. At the front there is a black rubber pipe-squeeze this a few times and then run the machine on a pump cycle. Put water in machine (i used a bucket) and repeat. You should get the foul smelling gunk out of the pump. I did this about 4 times and finally the water comes out clean and you should be ok.

Regards and good luck,

Matt

Hotpoint wf860


the applionce is in demmo mode and running a test cycle so you need to cancle the cycle first by holding the start reset button until all the screen iluminates(88:88) now you need to disable the demo mode by holding the start cancle and the on off buttons together until you see D OFF in some cases you may need to hold the button to the top left of the screen and the start and on off buttons but this will sort it
