As mine was under warranty, I just had an engineer fix the a problem with the same symptoms. What had happened is a wire had fell out of the overheat sensor at the top of th emachine so it wasn't heating up while drying.

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.

Find the pipe that comes out of the bottom of the drum, this may contain coin, muck, etc. Clean. This pipe leads to the small pump that draws the water out. If your clean of the pipe does not work the machine.......there could be a fault with your pump..........which you can/cannot clean.

SOURCE: Error message

Hotpoint’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)."

Hi ive just installed my new hotpoint WDF740 , im pleased with it but when its heating up it makes a ticking noise . any idears wot it could be ?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

That could just be the heating element and associated hardware expanding- providing it's not coming from the timer!

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Could be a faulty motor or heater element, you need to isolate the heater and try it again, if it still trips, then I would suspect the motor is faulty, try unplugging the motor at the rear of the washer, and try it again, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.

F-05 flashes up and water not draining out

An F-05 error message means that the pressure switch is jammed on empty or a problem with pump.

The fault is associated with drain out (pump blocked or restricted in some way).

Small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull of the two pipes (Plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and unclip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned.

Hotpoint WF640

the f-01 error code on your hotpoint all in 1 washer/dryer is a short circuit code for the motor. the only way to clear the code is to have a service tech come and inspect the reason for the error.
