I had the F18 fault.Nothing much worked except drain pump.
Simple solution for me was:
1)disconnect power 2)take off top of machine(2screws at rear) 3)locate the connector which fits on the rear of the main led display panel.4) Pull it off, squirt switch cleaner and replace with plenty of wiggling! 5) Put it back together and start washing !

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

F18 is a drainage fault.
The appliance has a set time to drain if it doesn't drain within that time F18 appears in display

hello, this is a communication error between the main brain board of the machine inside at the bottom and the control board where you push the buttons to operate the machine. most likely a broken wire between the 2 need to do an electricl continuity test between these boards on the blue cables that connect them

SOURCE: Hotpoint wmd960 not spinning, Error

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston) F05 decodes as 'pump block'.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Hotpoint WMD960 on start says ' no water supply '.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses.
If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

My WMD960 washing machine is coming up with error code FO5


That code indicates a blockage probably in the filter. If the machine is full of water try to drain it first by lowering the outlet hose into a bucket, of course that may not be too successful if the outlet is blocked but in any event you will need to unscrew the filter and clean it out. Be prepared for some water spillage. I would appreciate your vote for me if you think I helped. w

F18 usually indicates a communication error according to Hotpoints error code list, if you have tried everything that you can and it still does not work, then you are going to have to call an engineer.
