F16 is door lock fault.

Please try and clean the door lock then close the door bit harder than usual and try again.

See if it helps however, if the issue is still there then I am afraid you will have to replace the door lock.

The door lock is available here for £23 + repair charges.

You're welcome and Good Luck.
