SOURCE: remove bosch axxis 2060 washer motor

Remove the back panel to get to the motor which is at the bottom at the back. Notice two bolts holding the motor into the mount. Remove these two bolts. Notice the back part of the motor is sitting in the mount with black rubber washers. Carefully, pull the motor forward, and this will be abit hard. You can take a flat head screw driver and tap down (in between) on each front plastic washer and the motor will slowly come forward. Becarefull because there is a wire harness still attached to the motor. You have to take wire cutters and clip the placstic band holding the wire harness to the motor. Then grip the harness and wiggle it free. Then remove the single wire also. Putting the belt back is a bit tricky too. Make sure you put back the two black rubber washers and the two front plastic washers.

SOURCE: Why is the fault F18 error code on my bosch washing machine flashing?

Open the small flap at the front bottom right of the machine. DONT unscrew the circular white knob yet!!! Use the small black hose to drain the machine into a tray, by removing the small cap on the end of the hose. You will have to use a tray, rather than a bowl because the hose is only short, and keep emptying the tray.(put a washing up bowl next to the machine, so you don't have to carry the tray.) If water does not come out of the hose, then gently unblock it with a piece of wire or fine knitting needle. When water finally stops coming out of the hose, it is time to gently unscrew the white knob anti-clockwise, and pull it forwards. Now you can clear the debris out of the pump rotor, which is behind the white knob. Check with your finger that it can rotate freely, then replace the white knob firmly. Make sure the small cap is replaced on the end of the hose, clip it back into place and put back the cover panel. If this doesn't work then there is a blockage deeper in the machine, and dismantling will be required. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Bosch Exxcel 1400 Express -

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine even though we have a Bosch. I would suggest, however, as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

SOURCE: Error code F18 for Bosch Maxx 7 Silence washing

F-18 means the pump is blocked.
First checkthe filter for coins or other junks. Make sure the drain hose isn't blocked, restricted or kinked. Make sure there's no obstruction in the drain standpipe or U-bend.

If this doesn't work, might as well change the drain pump assembly. http://www.espares.co.uk/parts?k=pump

Hope it helps. ;)


Thanks for using Fixya. A 4-thumbs up for answering your question is greatly appreciated.

DESPERATE..... Displays fault code F18 frequently.Have cleaned the filter 3 times now recently(in the last 3 days) and is very clean but stopped again.Just emptied ll washing out of it and spun it to


I would check that the drain pipe is also clear.
You can actually get a build up of old soap powder in the pipework.
This pipe would be on the rear of the machine (grey in colour) and would connect to your waste pipe (perhaps under a sink)
If you can pull the machine forward and check to see if this pipe is indeed blocked, or even restricted.

I found this answer that may help you.

Error code F18


F18 error code means that the filter is blocked.

Look around for a propeller shaped part, it should be able to spin freely. If not, remove the debris so that it is unblocked.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).
