The F13 error code means the unit is not getting water or it's not coming in fast enough from the water inlet valve on the unit, remove the water supply line from the dishwasher and check for calcium buildup on the water inlet screen and also check to make sure it is getting proper water pressure supplied by the supply line, if all checks out you will need to replace the water inlet valve. If you have any questions let me know, thanks.

In the meantime:

PLEASE take into consideration we are on the honor system for our time, I Kindly ask you to rate my service BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY by clicking 3 or better on the STAR RATING SYSTEM at the top of your page or wherever the 5 star rating system is located on your page (sometimes it's hard to find but it's there).

Also be aware that this rating is for the quality of my response, not a rating for the overall experience you have had on this site.

Rating me will not in any way affect the amount you agreed to pay for the question. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions.

Before leaving a negative rating please discuss it with me first so I can have a chance to remedy the issue. Thank You!

TIPS are not expected but are GREATLY APPRECIATED!
