Hotpoint Washing Machine Error Codes

Glotech are a leading name when it comes to domestic appliance repairs and new appliances. This means we have direct accounts with major manufacturers and have access to information other providers don’t.

Below are a list of the common error codes for Hotpoint washing machines:

F01- circuit board fault
This usually happens when you cannot select one or more functions

F02- motor fault
Good indicator of this would be if the drum is not rotating during washing

F03- temperature sensor fault
Could be due to the heating element not coming on

F05- blockage or pump issue
In most cases 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

F06- Door lock problem
Again, you may not be able to open the door. You’ll also find when the door is closed the machine will not start a cycle

F07- Circuit board and/or heating element fault
Common sign of this would be the machine stopping mid way through its cycle, not heating the water, and sometimes the pump running continuously

F08- heating element fault
Your machine will stop mid way through its cycle when it gets to the heating stage

F09- software error
Usually indicated by multiple flashing lights. You’ll also find you won’t be able to get the machine to start a cycle on any programme

F11- pump fault
Signs include water remaining in the machine and/or not pumping out

F12- control error
The machine will not turn on

F13- temperature sensor fault (for washer dryers only)
Will not dry clothes properly or at all

F15- heater fault (for both washing machines and washer dryers)
Not heating or drying

F16- Drum lock sensor fault
Sensor controlling the position the drum stops in is not operating properly

F18- data error (internal)
The display and/or functions may not work properly. We suggest turning your machine off at the sockets for a few minutes, waiting a couple of minutes, and then reconnecting it

F19- fan motor or heating element error (for washer dryers only)
Machine will not dry properly or at all
