Code F-02 on hotpoint WT960

What does this code mean. It has come on the screen after the final spin, which incidentally does not leave the clothes as dry as they normally are.

    Next question: how to get th bottom plinth cover off without breaking all the tabs.

  • mike cooper Apr 22, 2012

    If you can ease it forward and get a flat screwdriver between the side of the machine and the front cover the edge should pop forward, then the middle pulls forward and the other end comes out easier.

    I have managed to make contact with the 'Service team' at Hotpoint. They could not answer the question - What does F-02 mean. Overall the answers that I got here were helpful, especially the one about the plinth at the bottom. Now though I think that I have worked out what F-02 means. The drum is stiff to turn, more so than normal and it is definitely no free moving. So now this looks like the motor has gone or that the drum bearing has gone. I'm checking this today and will add more comments later. This may be of help to others, in the meantime thank you to Mike Cooper and the others for their help.

Check and clean the filter and drain hose. Make sure the hose isn't kinked.

Turn off the power and pull out the machine to get to the rear. Pull out the hose you see going into the wall pipe, lay at floor level or plastic bag to drain out remaining water in machine. Remove the panel at the bottom (2 screws) where the discharge hose comes out. You should see a black concertina type tube coming from below the drum attached by a jubilee clip. The filter is inside. Loosen the clip and pull away the tube, take out the filter and clean it. When you replace it don't forget to put the ball float back in (exactly as you found it) and check it’s well fixed by running a spin cycle before sealing up. Caution, the exit drain hose shd be fitted at the exact location where you found it, abt three feet up from ground level.

Pl rate me nice for the free help, thnks.

this worked for me:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS
Comment by pulmicort, posted on Feb 02, 2008 Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.

SOURCE: hotpoint ultima wt960 washing machine noisy on spin

My WT960 was also very noisey on the spin cycle, but it had been like this since new, but became increasingly loud, to the point it sounded like it was going to explode. Boyfriend took machine apart to find the concrete weight had also loosened, bolts tightened, though awkward to get to. Now the machine spins ALOT silently than before!

My indesit 6105 does not finish with a final spin but everything else works and the drum spins up to this point. This means that the clothes come out very wet


There is fault on the final spin as it fails to dry or drain off the water from the clothes. It is possible that the RPM for the spin is not adequate or the timing is short. Please choose a different program to confirm. Also check for free movement of the drum or else use a de-greaser to the drum spindle bearing assembly.

Problems Drying Clothes


That's the way it works, kinda stupid, it would be good if it did that at first to loosen up clothes in case they're stuck to the drum but then move like a traditional dryer but that's just the way it is. BTW, here's a website with parts for it in case you need them. I never used them but just found them, I was lucky I never had any problems with my equator until now but I kinda can live with it (during rinse cycles it pumps water out but then when it does the short spins it does not, so rinsing is not as effective sinse it leaves a lot of dirty water in and then puts fresh water in and does it again, it does pump the water out during the final spin cycle though). Anyways, good luck. I bought mine in 2001 or 2002 and never had any problems except for the one I mentioned.
