Customer Question
I have an error...

I have an error message F16, what does that indicate?

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?

Appliance has not been used for 6 weeks, this is first attempt back at it. No never seen this message before. Not sure how old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends what's involved, if it's at all complicated then no

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can't think of anything. I was hoping that the error message would point to something simple

That is a drain heater code, open the top cover and disconnect the drain heater power connection and replace the heater to get it working again.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
