My hope is that it is still under warranty. But I assume it is not. I get a lot of parts and diagrams, as well as trouble shooting help from an excellent web source at www.repairclinic.com. Enter your model number and it will give suggestions to check for, as well as order your part. Used it many times.

Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Undo and remove the wide tapering pipe from the bottom of the drum to the pump. Inside you will find a non return ball valve, clean this and your problem should be solved

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.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
For most Indesit (Hotpoint and Ariston) models 'F07' means 'heater relay (possibly) stuck'. 'Check power supply connections to the heater, wiring and module (i.e. PCB) connections' (apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause)
BUT are you saying that '.....1 min and does NOT drain the water or spin the water from the clothes'? If so try this-
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
For most Indesit (Hotpoint and Ariston) models 'F01' often refers to the 'motor triac- check connections' but for a number of faults apparently poor PCB connections are often the cause so try this/these first. If you are not electrically confident and competent yourself, which you appear to be, you need to employ the skills of a partner, friend or service engineer ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This sounds very much like the belt is broken or the motor is malfunctioning. Whether it's worth getting fixed is difficult for us to comment on; it depends on how happy you are with it when it's working properly, how old it is and how much you are prepared to spend in each case, repair or replace.
Belt first.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had. New motors are not cheap, though- ours for a 19+ year-old Bosch cost GBP250. It's your choice!
Good luck,
John C

Sound like your drain pump is blocked. Tilt the machine as far back as you can to access underneath. The drain pump is located at the rear corner. Make sure to have a basin and remove the pipe going from the drain pump to the tub and see if anything is obstructing the pipe or stuck in the tub, is usually a sock. Hope this helps.
