Hi,

The F-16 code means that the washing machine thinks that the door is not closed properly. If you push the door closed it should clear and continue. There could be a number of reasons for this:

1. Loose door.
2. Loose or faulty latch.
3. Gunk in the door/latch.
4. Temporary glitch in the sensor - turning the machine off at the mains wall socket for 60 secs may clear this.
5. Faulty sensor.

I hope that helps, but if not let me know and I'll investigate further.

Best Regards,

Richard
