Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
Keeps coming up with F5 Error code, anyone know how I can fix it?
This worked for me:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS
Comment by pulmicort, posted on Feb 02, 2008 Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.

Hi its a pressure switch fault, but its more than likely that the pcb control is faulty, very common on this appliance... not a job for a novice, as you will probably need a new pcb fitted and will also need a new epprom memory chip... best thing to do if its under 5 years, is get hotpoint out you will have a 5 year parts g/tee. you will need to pay the labour at around £90-100, but its worth it... not an easy fix im afraid.. ally

Check filter first as the pressure system is connected to the filter
