today the machine did not empty properly then we got it emptied, before there was a fault code h20 coming up, then we opened door and clothes were still water logged so we tried to run a spin at 1200, the spin cycle did not start only the fault f-08 showed up in lcd window. its near xmas and we needd to get all our childrens clothes washed and sorted,can anyone please give us some advice. i have went in again just now, tried to run a spin but machine seems to start to run a spin then after about 10 seconds f-08 comes up on lcd. then i try to turn washing machine off at start /stop switch but it doesnt, i try to turn machine off at on /off switch but it doesnt, it will only turn off at the wall ?

advice needed badly please , if someone could leave even a phone number we could call for advice if nessessary.

thankyou all in advance

First all all unplug it for 2 mins to clear error code. That error relates to heater or pcb fault. Check the wires on the heater then pcb make sure they are tight. Give the relays a tap on the pcb it could be stuck.

Pcb is module / circuit board etc. Found at the back in the corner with a White cover over it. Remove rear cover to see. Relays are on the pcb.

i have now tried to run a rinse/spin for 30 minutes it seems to be going ok but that was only 3 minutes ago so i am keeping an eye on things meanwhile. though when i put it on a 1200 fast spin it will start up then stop in about 10 seconds showing the f-08 fault.

if i get engineer out how much could this cost ? average ? i know all too well there are lots of cowboys out there who will let on it needs a whole new panel board or something, i just wouldnt be able to tell if we are getting ripped off or not.

thanks

slow spin ran for about 3 minutes then went onto f-08......seems the board/panel is loose, on and off switch dont work unless i put my hand on the back of the panel to hold it, even so the f-08 switch is flashing on and off now. ive gave up , i just havent a clue sorry.
thanks

Call hotpoint total cost 100.00 parts and labour all in. Pcb is 80 quid on it's own. Plus a independent will cost you more, top pcb is also 60.00 ..

My wife has had this prob also yesterday 23rd and she also tried to do a rinse spin cycle. It was the first time she used this function so I wonder could it contain the fault. Anyway I switched off at wall socket cleared clothes from m/c - you need to wait until door release activates - 30 secs and the I set a short wash with m/c empty hoping to clear fault which seems to be related to heater. This seems to have worked so we are now doing a fast wash - 30mins instead of the rinse/spin. Try this ok

Hi, I am having the same problem with my Hotpoint washing machine. Can I ask how your story ended? Did an engineer come out to fix it? Or did the previous suggestions work i.e. tapping the relay etc. And if you got engineer how much did it cost to fix? Thanks.
