F08 - Heater relay cannot be activated.

Check relay and replace it if is bad.

Fault finding


Hotpoint wd860p washer/drier had fault code F08 come up on the display so took all the usual steps
1. Checked filter
2. Took top off machine checked all contacts
3. Circuit tested usual items
put onto cycle onto rinse and spin after rinse came up with fault code F08 again. Checked internet sites for solutions nothing matched the problem. So started again checking all usual items nothing seemed wrong whilst spending time looking over the machine I noticed the back edge of the weight block was damp? Unplugged the unit and I looked along the grey plastic condense hose which runs from water inlet supply to the heater unit for the drier and it had been rubbing on the drum causing 2 very small holes in the pipe!!!! So to test I pinched around the pipe sealing the holes with some blue tack and fixed in place with some insulation tape. Put it back on a cycle and all seems ok I can order a new pipe whilst the wife still uses the machine. It would appear most error codes are not specific to a particular problem... Typical of a money making scam for the service dept of the manufacturers ...!!!! Watch out ... Hope this is of some use...

Error F08


Error code F08 is indicating that the heater relay is not being activated.
You need to check all the connections on the module, the pressure switch, and the heater element.

Hi I have a hotpoint wf630 washing machine and it keeps flashing error codes f08. Could you tell me what this codes means. many thanks, Stuart


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Most Hotpoint, Ariston and Indesit (who make the other two) use similar fault codes. Although I cannot confirm it on your particular machine, f08 means there is a problem with the heater/its relay/its control. Often a cure is to re-seat the cables/wiring to and from these items.
REMOVE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANYTHING OF COURSE.
Good luck,

John C

Ariston AIB16 flashing fault code f-08? can this


F08 Heater relay cannot be activated
this can be repaired cheap its part of the main board

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

F-08 Error message keeps appearing


Error code F08 indicates that the heater relay cannot be activated.
Check connections on
1--pressure switch.
2--heater element.
3--control module.
If you still cannot get it to work, then you are probably going to have to call an engineer.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

My hotpoint ultima keeps triping the trip switch. it had f08 on the screen but now that has gone, but still trips electrics every time i press start.


Hi

f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.

regards
