Whirlpool Dishwasher Error Code F08

Dishwashers have grown into being one of the most used luxury appliances within the home - helping you to minimise the time and effort it takes to clean your plates, dishes and cutlery.

But from time-to-time the dishwasher can develop faults - which can mean you might need to go back to using the marigolds to wash the dishes by hand at the sink.

If your dishwasher is flashing at you with an F08 error code, it is likely to be caused by the water level in the machine being too high.

In order to minimise any further defects developing, we have investigated into the possible causes and hope to help guide you in diagnosing the fault.

Cause 1

Pressure Switch

If the water level is too high in the dishwasher it may leak over the door seal and water can build up in the base tray under the machine - leading it to leak onto the floor.

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

  • Check if the pressure switch is operating correctly.
  • Examine the pressure hose for any blockages and restrictions.

If the hose looks fine and there are no restrictions, suspect the switch to be the culprit to your fault.

Once you have identified the faulty switch, see our online catalogue for a new pressure switch to ensure your dishwasher reaches the correct water level.
