Viking Dishwasher Error Codes

Viking Dishwasher Error Code F8

Error code F8 on your Viking dishwasher indicates a malfunction in the turbo fan, a crucial component responsible for expelling hot air and ensuring efficient drying of your dishes. When this error occurs, the turbo fan is either blocked or damaged, compromising its ability to function properly.

  1. Fan Blockage: Accumulation of debris, food particles, or foreign objects obstructing the turbo fan blades.
  2. Fan Damage: Wear and tear, motor issues, or physical damage affecting the turbo fan’s performance.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Inspect Turbo Fan Blades:

    Open the dishwasher door and locate the turbo fan, usually situated near the top of the dishwasher. Carefully examine the fan blades for any visible blockages such as food debris, utensils, or other objects.

  2. Clear Blockages:

    If blockages are detected, use a soft brush or cloth to gently remove any debris from the fan blades. Ensure there are no foreign objects hindering the fan’s rotation.

  3. Check for Physical Damage:

    Inspect the turbo fan for any signs of physical damage, such as broken blades or a misaligned motor. If damage is evident, professional assistance may be required to repair or replace the turbo fan.

  4. Power Cycle the Dishwasher:

    Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power source. Wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on. Retry the dishwasher to see if the F8 error persists.

Remember, attempting to disassemble or repair complex components without the necessary expertise may lead to further damage. Always prioritize safety and seek professional assistance when dealing with intricate dishwasher components like the turbo fan.
