Hotpoint WD420 on/off + Dry High Heat lights flashing

When putting hand washed clothing in our Hotpoint washer drier (WD420) and a rinse spin program is set on, the on/off and Dry High Heat lights started flashing and the spin slowed down for the first time. Previously such action completed smoothly without such error.

Searching the error code for the above flash combination appears to indicate fault code F08 as follows:
  • For EVO1 Washing Machines and Washer Dryers F08 - Heater relay cannot be activated
    For EVO2 and V4 Washing Machines and Washer Dryers F08 - Heater relay stuck

I'm not sure of the following:
  • Is such flash combination code is correct?
    Which one applies in this case EV01 or Ev02?
    What action should I best take?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
