Ok F13 is a dryer thermistor fault. If it happening during the wash cycle and spin then what you need to do is remove the top of the washer.

There you will see the metal dryer chamber. At the front of this on the rigth is the sensor. It will have 2 thin wires there. Just check the wires are fine and none are broken. If thats fine then you need to remove the sensor and test it with a multi meter. To remove it you need to spilt that dryer chamber by undoing the screws all around it.

Then once its out it should read about 20K ohms on your meter. If faulty then it will need to be replaced.

But if the sensor is fine then its going to be the control board at the back. But Hotpoint have had a few problems with these thermistor sensors give faults like this so its well worth just replacing the sensor anyway and fingers crossed this will cure the fault.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
