Here are some fault codes for the Hotpoint TCL range of tumble dryers.

F01 The motor is running when it should be off.
• Check if module connector J3 has shorted due to moisture.
• Replace module.
F02 Open circuit between module and motor Common.
• Check security of module connector J3;
• Test motor Common (TOC);
• Check wiring between J3 and motor.
F03 Front thermistor open or short circuit.
• Check security of module connector J12;
• Test from connector pins (approximately 500 Kohms);
• If open or short circuit, test thermistor and wiring between thermistor and J12 to locate fault.
F04 Pump working when should be off.
• Check security of module connector J5;
• Check connector for signs of shorting due to moisture;
• Replace module (F04 would normally be caused by a faulty
module).
F05 Pump is not working when it
should be on.
• Check security of module connector J5;
• Check connector for signs of shorting due to moisture;
• Replace module (F05 would normally be caused by a faulty
module).
F06 Not used. •
F07 Lower element failure • Check security of module connector J4;
• Test between pins 4 and 3 on J4 (approximately 48 Ohms);
• If open circuit, test lower element and wiring between J4 and
the heater.
F08 Lower element is energised when it should be off.
• Check security of module connector J4;
• check connector for signs of shorting due to moisture;
• Test heater elements and wiring;
• Replace module (F08 would normally be caused by a faulty
module).
F09 Error Set Up File. Eeprom is either not programmed or is
not functioning.
• If the module is a production board, replace the module;
• If the module has an Eeprom socket, check the eeprom is
correctly inserted and programmed.
If testing for a Heater related fault, test on a Cotton High Heat setting or a Timed setting with High Heat enabled.
F10 Open circuit in the heater Common wiring.
• Check module connector J4;
• Check wiring between module connector J4 and the heater;
• Test heater elements.
Note: – Frequent cycling stat operation can cause F10, check
filter and condenser for blockages.
F11 Open circuit pump circuit. • Test continuity of pump;
• Check connector J5;
• Check wiring between pump and module J5.
Note: – F11 is usually caused by a fault in the pump circuit not
the module.
Auto cycle being used fault displays within 1 minute
Time and Wool cycles being used fault displays at the end of the cycle.
F12 No communication between display module and control module.
• Check connector J9 on module;
• Check wiring between module connector J9 and display;
• Check display connector;
• Replace module, display or wiring as required.
F13 Rear thermistor open or short circuit.
• Check security of module connector J4;
• Test from J4 connector pins 1 and 2 (approximately 500
Kohms);
• If open circuit, test thermistor and wiring between thermistor
and J4 to locate fault.
F14 Upper element failure • Check security of module connector J4;
• Test between pins 4 and 5 on J4 (approximately 48 ohms);
• If open circuit, test upper element and the wiring between J4
and the heater.
F15 Upper element is on when it should be off.
• Check security of module connector J4;
• Check connector for signs of shorting due to moisture;
• Check heater elements and wiring;
• Replace module (F15 would normally be caused by a faulty
module).
F16 Not used.
F17 Master Relay contacts welded closed.
• Replace module.
If testing for a Heater related fault, test on a Cotton High Heat setting or
a Timed setting with High Heat enabled.
