F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

Check that your water pressure is not too high and filling the machine too quickly!

If the machine fills up and operates the pressure level switch too soon (in time) after starting to fill, it will display F10, pump out the water and stop.

Fix - simply shut down the inlet tap to reduce the rate it fills up..

It took ages to find this - after I had spent days checking everything else and also replaced the pressure switch.

F10 means that the water level switch is not sensing the correct water level, this can be caused by faulty switch, a blockage in the pressure system, a blocked drain pump or filter.
It is a process of elimination I'm afraid.
Please rate my suggestions to solve your problem.Thanks.

F10 FAULT CODE


F10 means that the pressure switch (water level switch) is not sensing the correct water level.
This can be for one of several reasons.
Firstly ,clean filter, if no filter at front behind bottom panel ,then remove lower rear panel, remove large black hose from bottom of tub, remove and clean filter inside..
Detach pressure switch hose attached to plastic chamber which comes from large black hose, this is a small plastic hose, blow down it , and you should hear the switch click if you listen carefully.
If you cannot hear it click, then switch is probably faulty, follow hose to switch.
Make sure the plastic chamber is not blocked where the hose is attached at bottom end.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

hiya
this could be caused by a faulty pressure switch (controls water levels). but due to the machine sharing the same electrical components as indesit it could be a fault on the main pcb.

hope this helps

Hotpoint Ultima W860


hi there f10 fault code means pressure switch not sensing,
this could be to do with low water pressure or a bad connection on the pressure switch or control module which is located at the back left hand corner of the machine, remove backplate to gain access and remake all connections on module, if this should not resolve the fault i would be looking to replace the pressure first part no= C00112659 cost about £15

ps. always disconnect from mains before carrying out any work
