Below are a list of the most common error codes that will appear on the digital display of your Hotpoint washing machines, along with the fault type and a description of what’s gone wrong:
|Error Codes||Fault Type||Fault Description||Advice|
|F01||Circuit board fault||This usually happens when you cannot select one or more functions||Unplug the washing machine from the mains for at least 2 minutes before reconnecting and trying again|
|F02||Motor fault||A good indicator of a motor fault would be if the drum is not rotating during a washing cycle||Book a washing machine repair engineer|
|F03||Temperature sensor fault||A temperature sensor fault could be due to the heating element not coming on||Book a washing machine repair engineer|
|F04||Blockage or pump issue||In most cases of a blockage or pump problem, the door will not open or, if it can be opened, you’ll see some water inside the drum||We would recommend you check the hoses and filters for any signs of blockage. If you clear a blockage and the problem persists, book a washing machine repair engineer|
|F06||Door lock problem||If the door won’t open it could be a problem with the door lock mechanism. When the door is closed, the machine will not start a cycle||Check for obstructions in the door locking mechanism. If you can’t find one, book a washing machine repair engineer|
