Hotpoint Aquarius WF560 - Flashing Wash Enhance Light

Just joined this forum.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF560 Washing Machine.

On application of mains power, after several seconds, the On/Off light will 'flash on/off' and so will the 'Wash Enhance' light.

The machine will go part way through the cycle, stopping in limbo at the rinse and spin phase.

Any ideas what this fault is? Or what these error codes mean?

Cheers, Ben.

Hello rocks1,

Thanks for your reply.

You mentioned I need a new PCB.

Is that because the Heater Relay has failed, inline with f08 light 1?

I'm assuming light 1 is Wash Enhance?

Cheers, Ben.
Yes correct. But just test heater first should be 25 ish ohms.

Hello rocks1,

Been away from home over the last week, need to get back on the case with this.

Could you tell me were the PCB is situated within the machine please?

And the best way of getting to it?

Cheers, Ben.
