If you consider your dishwasher to be the fairy godmother of your household appliances, you will be very inconvenienced if for some reason you are unable to use it.
If your dishwasher has thrown up an E16 error code after a wash cycle has finished, the most likely offender causing this issue will be a faulty water inlet valve.
Following our advice should help you identify the fault and get the water flowing into your dishwasher once again.
Solenoid Inlet Valve
A possible cause which could lead to your dishwasher not filling at all may be a faulty inlet valve (also known as a fill valve). If you suspect that your valve is no longer operating at its optimal performance, you can see our helpful steps below to assist you in some checks that you can do - so you can hopefully get your dishwasher working like new once again.
Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.
- Check the solenoid valve flow meter for any signs of damage.
- Remove the fill hose.
- Carefully remove the small filter from the inside of the valve or the hose seal filter if fitted and inspect for blockages. If the filter is clear, the solenoid valve is likely to need replacing. Prior to replacing check the water valve for faults using a multimeter.
