Whirlpool Dishwasher Error Code F10

Nowadays in many modern households, you’re likely to find a much-appreciated dishwasher - serving the purpose of cleaning all the plates, dishes and cutlery for families after dinner time.

However from time to time, they can suffer from different faults that can impact on its performance, and in some instances lead it to not being able to work at all.

If your dishwasher has come to a halt, and it is flashing an F10 error code on the display panel at you, it is likely that there is a problem with the water temperature sensor.

Cause 1

Sensor Failure

If the sensor in your dishwasher has failed, your dirty dishes may not come out as clean to what your expectations are - as without hot water greasy residue will struggle to wash away.

The NTC sensor monitors the water temperature in the machine and allows the control board to regulate the water heater. If the sensor fails and its resistance is outside the normal limits the control board will recognise this and display the error code.

This part will usually be found pushed into the sump under the wash cavity.

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

  • To access the sensor remove the base panel of the dishwasher to locate the sump which will have the sensor attached. 

If you have identified the NTC sensor to be faulty, check our wide range of dishwasher spares for the perfect replacement and get your dishwasher working as it should.
