Fault code showing for Ariston bs1400 front loader

1. I have a machine that has decided to not work and throw out a fault code of F18. The machine recently got wet during a storm and on inspection I found the plastic tray at the bottom of the machine full with water. The water submerged the lower two plugs on the circuit board in water. I removed the circuit board and cleaned all pins and allowed the circuit board to dry.

Note; there was no evidnce of burning or shorting on close inspection.

2. On refittment the machine runs up as normal and when selecting various wash settings cycles normally. The water is entering the machine and being cycled by the scavenge pump. After this initial cycle the macine then continues to operate the scavenge pump while displaying fault code F18. The machine can only be turned off at the power point.

3. Any attempt to turn the machine off through the normal display switches sees a continuous F18 code flash and no response from the machine.

After the machine is turned off it operates as discussed in paragraph 2.

Ariston dishwasher lkf 720 has a problem on/off, washing and end indicator lights are flashing


Reading the error code

The fault on the appliance is signalled via:

1. the continuous rotation of the selector knob
2. the action, for the first 4', of the electrovalve and the drain pump
3. the door becomes unlocked
4. the led flashes: the number of flashes indicates the fault code; the code should be read as follows:
· each fast flash (2/3 flashes of the led very close together) represents one code value
· the fault code is evaluated by counting the number of flashes occurring at 3/4" intervals from one another
· stop counting when the washing machine waits the equivalent of approximately 8/9" between flashes
· the procedure is repeated by the appliance cyclically

After you determine which the alarm code appeared we will able specifically to help you.

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.

Hotpoint WMD960 F18 error code


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 !

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).

Bosh Washing Machine F18 fault


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 and some hairgrips. Now my machine works perfectly !

You could check the pump, open and drain, clear anything out of the pump, next turn off and unplug the mains cable, wait 40 secs and connect mains and turn back on.
