Hiya
i'm pretty sure this is a electronics fault, and due to them having the same components as indesit can be quite a nightmare to pinpoint as well as expensive. these machines usually come with a 5 years parts warranty so you may be better off paying for a hotpoint engineer to call out.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj

Hotpoint WF860 1600 spin machine keeps flashing F12. How can I solve it please???


Hi

The code F12 means the following:

F12 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps
.

Also Error code F12 is indicating a communications error between cards; Error code F12 is indicating a communications error between cards, this can be caused by one of several things. A problem with bad connections, if you can remove and then replace the plug on connectors, check for loose or chafed wires to motor, they can chafe due to tightness of wires, particularly down to the motor.
It is an electrical problem as opposed to a mechanical one.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

What does f-12 mean on the control panel and how do i get rid of it


The Hotpoint F12 error is a Serial Communication Error.
This is a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

  1. Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  2. Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  3. Check MCU
  4. Check CCU
  5. Check Motor
  6. Check Wire Harness
You may be able to reset it by switchg off the AC power to the machine and leaving it for 30 mins. Then switch back on to see if the error persists.

    Hi.
    F12 indicates 2 or 3 differant faults.
    Try these first.
    Press and hold start/ cancel button for at least 3 seconds, and see if jt works.
    Make sure hot and cold water taps are turned on and that you are getting water to the m/c.
    Select a drain prog, and see if it pumps out o/k.
    If all these do not solve problem, then you have a communication error between boards, this entails calling an engineer out.
    If it is under 5 years old then you should be covered by the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee.
    Plz rate my solution .Thanks.
