The E16 fault code appears when a wash cycle is over, and it signals a problem in the inlet valve. This may impede the flow of water into the device. You can either use professional help or, if you have some experience with these devices, remedy it on your own.
Do not start any repair work when the machine is in oeration. Switch it off and disconnect from the mains. Let it cool down for about 40 minutes.
- Make sure the solenoid valve flow meter is not damaged.
- Pull off the inlet hose.
- Remove the small filter from the valve or the hose seal filter. Check the hose and filter for blockages and damage. If there are no debris in the filter, most likely, the valve is faulty and has to be replaced. Before buying another one, check the valve with a multimeter.
