Viking Dishwasher Error Code F4

If you’re encountering the Viking Dishwasher Error Code F4, indicating a Temperature Sensor Fault, it’s crucial to address the issue promptly. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the error code and its potential solutions:

Error Code F4: Temperature Sensor Fault

The temperature sensor within the dishwasher is not functioning correctly. This sensor plays a vital role in monitoring and regulating the water temperature during different phases of the dishwashing cycle.


  • Inaccurate water temperature readings.
  • Issues with water heating during the wash cycle.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check the Temperature Settings: Verify that the temperature settings on the dishwasher are appropriate for the selected wash cycle. Incorrect settings could trigger the error code.
  2. Inspect for Physical Damage: Examine the temperature sensor for any visible signs of damage or wear. Cracks, corrosion, or loose connections may indicate a malfunction.
  3. Reset the Dishwasher: Sometimes, a simple reset can resolve electronic glitches. Turn off the dishwasher, unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and then plug it back in. Restart the dishwasher and see if the error persists.
  4. Ensure Proper Water Supply: Confirm that the dishwasher is receiving an adequate supply of hot water. Low water temperature can lead to erroneous temperature sensor readings.
  5. Professional Assessment: If the issue persists after performing the above steps, it’s advisable to consult a professional technician. They can conduct a thorough inspection, use diagnostic tools, and determine whether the temperature sensor needs calibration or replacement.
