eaning of Hotpoint Washing Machine Error Codes 

Modern day appliances are able to let you know when something is going wrong by displaying an error code when a fault is detected. 
 
Hotpoint Washing Machines and Hotpoint Washer-Dryers have this handy facility – they either show an error code or LED lights start flashing on the console – to let you know the washing machine is experiencing an operational fault. Usually, the fault or error code will be your first indication that the washing machine has developed a problem, so you can’t ignore it. In fact, it is likely your machine will no longer function anyway, until you’ve dealt with the error code. 
 
If you don’t know what the code means you won’t know where to start, so the first thing to do is note the code and then identify it in our Hotpoint washing machine error code guide below. 
 
It’s possible the fault is something simple – like overloading – that you can rectify yourself, but sometimes what triggered the error code on the washing machine may be a more serious mechanical fault that will need a professional appliance repairer to fix.

Guide to Hotpoint Washing Machine Error Codes 

F01 – or flashing LED light No. 4 
The washing machine will not operate, and functions can’t be selected. This is an indication of a fault with the electronic circuit board. It could be rectified by unplugging the machine for two minutes or more, then plugging it in and starting the machine again. If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to call a repair engineer
 
F02 – or flashing LED light No. 3 
This code indicates there is a motor circuit fault with your Hotpoint washing machine. Mechanically it means the drum will not rotate – or rotate intermittently – during the wash cycle. This fault requires a professional repair engineer. Call 01420 481120. 
 
F03 – or flashing LED lights No. 3 & 4 
The water in your washing machine won’t heat up because there is a temperature sensor fault. This needs fixing by a professional repair engineer. Call Service 87 on 01420 481120 or book a repair online
 
F04 – or flashing LED light No. 2 
When you see this code you will notice that your washing machine just keeps filling up with water. This is because the pressure switch has jammed, or there could be a blockage in the hose. If the hose isn’t blocked you’ll need an engineer to find and fix the problem. Call 01420 481120. 
 
F05 – or flashing LED lights No. 2 & 4 
When the machine won’t drain of water (and the door won’t open) this error code will advise you to check for blockages in the pump filter, the waste water hose and your under-sink plumbing. If none of these fixes cure the problem, it means the pump has failed and you’ll need professional help. 
 
F06 – or flashing LED lights No. 2 & 3 
This code indicates there is an issue with the washing machine’s door lock. The door will be stuck, and the machine won’t start. Call a professional engineer to fix it.
