Hiya,
F04 indicates the drain pump (the one that pumps the water to the bottle) is running when it shouldn't be.
.
This is normally a fault with the main control board.
.
Unplug the appliance.
Take the top and side panels off.
Check the connections to the main board.
Unplug them, plug them back on.
.
Try the machine again.
If still the same, you'll need to have the board changed and then programmed to the appliance (this requires special programming equipment).
.
sorry, not good news or a simple fix.
.
Check it out, see what you find and get back to me.
.
Hope this helps
Thanks
