hi are you available

After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11

1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).

Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.

Drain pump defective.


1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
