Hotpoint’s range of dryers boasts quick and uniform drying. Whether gas or electric, they maintain consistent temperatures, preventing clothes from over-drying or shrinking. The lint filters are easy to clean, and the various drying modes cater to different fabric types. Their quiet operation is another significant advantage.
F01: Short Circuit Motor Triac
The electronic control has detected a short in the motor circuit.
F02: Motor Jammed or Tacho Off
The motor is not able to rotate or the tachometer circuit (which monitors motor speed) is malfunctioning.
F03: Temperature Sensing Fault
The temperature sensors or thermistors are providing irregular or inconsistent readings.
F04: Pressure Switch Stuck on Empty
The pressure switch, which detects the amount of water in the machine, believes the dryer is empty when it’s not.
F05: Pressure Switch Stuck on Full
The pressure switch detects that the dryer is full of water, possibly indicating a drainage problem.
F06: Program Selector Issue
The program selector, responsible for choosing drying cycles, is malfunctioning or stuck.
F07: Heater Relay Fault
There’s an issue with the heater relay, impacting the dryer’s ability to heat.
F08: Heater Fault
The heating element or related components are malfunctioning, affecting the dryer’s heating capability.
F09: Incompatible EEPROM
There’s an issue with the EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) in the control board.
F10: Pressure Switch Not Sensing
The pressure switch is not detecting or sensing correctly.
F11: NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) Sensor Fault
The NTC sensor, which measures temperature, is malfunctioning or providing inaccurate readings.
F12: Temperature Control Fault
There’s an issue with the temperature control circuit, affecting the dryer’s ability to regulate temperature accurately.
F13: Drying Temperature Too High
The dryer has detected that the drying temperature has exceeded safe limits.
F14: Dryer Overheating
The dryer’s internal temperature has surpassed safe levels, possibly due to a malfunctioning thermostat or control board.
F15: Dryer Door Open
The dryer’s control board believes that the door is open, preventing operation.
F16: Door Lock Error
The dryer’s door lock mechanism is malfunctioning or not engaging properly.
F17: Control Board Error
There’s a problem with the dryer’s control board or the communication between components.
F18: Inlet Valve Fault
The water inlet valve is malfunctioning, affecting water supply when required (in some dryer models with steam functions).
F19: Drum Motor Fault
The motor responsible for turning the drum is malfunctioning or not operating correctly.
F20: Communication Error
There’s a communication problem between the various electronic modules of the dryer.
