  1. I was cleaning out my washing machine - the detergent drawer and the filter, I ran some hot water through the the empty detergent drawer slot to help soften the dried powder. The water ran through the machine out of the slightly loosened filter as I had just placed it back but left it loose to flush the water out. Shortly after there was a water proofing error. After tilting the washing machine to ensure the water didn’t wash back into the machine the error went away, but changed to a “Technical ! fault F169”. I can’t find this error code anywhere in a manual, but the guidance for technical faults is to switch off and on again at the mains. Unfortunately, I don’t know where the mains are as I rent and I’m not sure what the issue is or what I’m supposed to do. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it. All parts (filter and drawer) are back in place and I’ve switched the machine off using the normal power button.
