F18 means pump is blocked or broken, clean filter first, no result change then you have to change the pump.

I also had this problem - the machine was full of water and it flashed up F18. I had to drain the water out of the machine using the small pipe located next to the drain filter. There was loads of water to drain out. I used my oven roasting tray which was perfect for the job. Then I undid the screwcap filter. There was a lot of really black water that came out, along with about two pounds worth of coins.

F18 is flashing on a Bosch front loader washing machine ( Logixx8 Sensitive)?


If it is a F18 error,t means that the pump out time is too long. Most likely clogged filter.
Open panel on the bottom right, drain the water out using the left hose and remove the filter plug. Have a look and clear obstructions.
That should help.

How to fix f18 fault


The f18 code that pops up in these models is related to the "contra-rotating" mode unique to this line. This mode is very tough on the gears and drum and they end up binding. The only "real" fix is a new drum assembly, which dyson has run out of for service parts. You can run the washer without using the contra-rotate mode and the unit will not act up. Other than replacing a no longer available part, some owners have found that by washing some oil-soaked articles (such as shop rags or towels drenched in motor oil), the offending parts binding issue can be lubricated away for quite some time. When the f18 error returns, they just wash some more oil into the problem area to make it disappear again.

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!!
