I need your help with Hotpoint dishwasher troubleshooting. The F01 error for the anti-flooding overflow means that LED 1 is on and the other two are off.
You should turn off the water to the dishwasher and call for service.
So F01 is the first LED on.
F02 error means the second LED is on while the others are off. That means the water fill solenoid valve has failed.
What do you do about that, aside from call for appliance repair? Order out pizza you eat on paper plates, wash dishes by hand in the sink, be glad it isn’t an F01 error where you could have water overflowing the dishwasher and onto the floor.
It is hard to get Hotpoint service, since it is a British brand. F03 is for the water drain failure or timeout, where LED 1 and 2 are on but the rest off.
Check the drain pipe for blockages, and if there isn’t one, call for service.
I’m surprised F03 isn’t the third LED on by itself. That’s actually F04, meaning the thermostat is at fault. If you didn’t put dishes straight out of the freezer or oven in the dishwasher, you need to replace the sensor if not the control board.
A sensor is at least cheap. A new control board is almost as expensive as a new dishwasher, when labor is factored in.
What is F05? There is no F05 error. F06 is when LEDs two and three are on, and that’s a water fill timeout error.
I do not even know what that means.
The first thing to check is whether you paid your water bill, since the F06 error means it can’t get water or enough water into the unit. I can turn the sink on to prove that I did.
Then check the water pressure, like if the water hose to the dishwasher isn’t kinked or water pressure too low because you’re doing dishes during commercial break when everyone else used the toilet. I know the water pressure dips during the Superbowl half time for that very reason, but that isn’t the cause in this case. Then We’re back to calling customer service.
F07 is the error for a water turbine problem, when all the LEDs are on but the fourth, and that’s a call to technical support. I’m assuming that is English for a water pump.
F08 is when only the fourth LED is on. That’s a temperature timeout, and if the heating element isn’t burned out, you need customer service. I wish there was something I could fix by power cycling it like my gaming console.
The F09 error is a software error, and for that, I would say power cycle it, though that’s best done at the breaker than pushing the on off button like an elevator button.
