Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I read your other entry first ;-0)
You will have to find the date code- on the rear panel perhaps- then here are your options-

Date code 39 March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39 March 2005 to date code 42 June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to normal

Date code 43 July 2005 onwards
Press both star/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.

Good luck!
John C

SOURCE: hotpoint ultima F-05 errorr appears on machine

Error F05 indicates pressure switch jammed on full.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve the problem.

SOURCE: i have a hotpoint ultima

SomeHotpoint's are designed to go into test mode when the start button and the on/off button are pressed at the same time. If you are stuck in Test mode, simply hold the start button down until it comes out of test mode, then hold both the start buttons and the on/off button down until you see 'D:end' (or similar message). Now try a normal wash programme again and hopefully it should be fine. If it goes into test mode by itself, then it may be an indication that there is a real fault, or a faulty programmer board. hope this helps.

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.

Error Code "TEST"


Just had the same problem & found the following solution via the web :-
1. When tESt shows hold down both the ON/OFF Button & the START Button together & let the Test proceed holding the two buttons down for the entire test (Approx 3 Minutes ) .
Continue to hold the " buttons down until the word Done appears.
After which you should be able to proceed with the normal wash cycle

Test


When it is turned on, press the On/Off button and the Start/Cancel button at the same time until the display reads "dOff". This worked for my washing machine after repeatedly displaying "Test" and doing nothing else.
