Viking Dishwasher Error Code F6
The F6 error code on your Viking dishwasher indicates a problem with the door – either it is not closed securely, or the dishwasher is unable to detect the closed door.
- Insecure Door Closure: The dishwasher door might not be closed properly.
- Latch Issues: Problems with the door latch mechanism.
- Obstructions: Anything obstructing the door closure.
Troubleshooting and Resolution:
Ensure Proper Door Closure:
- Gently open and close the dishwasher door, making sure it latches securely.
- Check for any visible obstructions around the door gasket or latch area.
- Inspect the door for any damage that might affect closure.
Check Door Latch:
- Examine the door latch mechanism for any signs of wear or damage.
- Lubricate the latch with a suitable, recommended lubricant to ensure smooth operation.
- If the latch is damaged, consider replacing it with a genuine Viking replacement part.
Inspect for Obstructions:
- Carefully inspect the area around the door and the dishwasher interior for any objects, utensils, or debris that might hinder proper closure.
- Ensure that the dishwasher racks and utensil trays are positioned correctly and do not interfere with the door.
Reset the Dishwasher:
- Turn off the dishwasher using the power button or by unplugging it from the power source.
- Wait for a few minutes and then turn it back on. This action may reset the control board and clear the error if it was a temporary glitch.
Remember to exercise caution and ensure the dishwasher is disconnected from the power source before attempting any troubleshooting or repairs. If you are uncertain or uncomfortable with any step, it’s always best to consult with a qualified technician for assistance.Schedule Appointment
