F18 error code on siemens washing machine

Hi, I have a Siemens E12.46 washing machine, E-Nr WM12E46SGB/01, FD 8809. I keep getting the F18 error code every time a wash cycle comes to its end, the drum still full of water. I have followed guidance in the instruction manual and online. I have drained it using the drainage hose and then by opening the pump cover. I cleaned out the gunk, there was a few bits of waste but nothing major. I have also checked the rear drainage hose and it is all clear into the drainage. The problem still persists, so I think it is the pump itself as I read that it should rotate freely when the pump cover is off. I can rotate it round with my fingers but there is some resistance, which I think the water would have a problem turning if not under enough pressure, which I think it is not draining. The pump seems to rotate 180 degrees by my fingers and then snap around the next 180 degrees into position again. This is true when rotating both clockwise or anti-clockwise. Does this sound correct? Also is this an easy fix, or do I need a manufacturer repair? I have paperwork from Domestic General for a 5 year guarantee that I took out when I bought it which states that it covers it for breakdown. Would this be covered? Many thanks for any help.

SOURCE: Problem with Hotpoint WD64 Washer Dryer

Effectively it looks like a water heating problem.

When the water cannot be heated sufficiently, the machine waits until water reaches desired temperature.
So that the program takes longer to complete.

Heating problems can be caused by:

Faulty heating element
Faulty heating element solenoid.
Faulty thermic switch (in this case the water will get hotter than normal)

The heating element and the solenoid can be tested for continuity using a multimeter.

If the machine is slow to fill check also that the inlet valve is fine and not obstructed.

SOURCE: W640 - Water Outlet Fault

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bosch WFF1800 - not spinning

HI,

move the kicking plate on the front-bottom of the machine. You will see o circular lid there, turn it on anti-clockvise to open. All of the water blocked will come from there, be careful. Look carefully that there are some objects blocking the water draining. Then turn on the machine on draining programme, the plastic rotor should turn fastly when the machine is on. If it is not running, change the pump motor. If it is running, but machine is not draining again you can understand that there is an objeck stuck on the hose between drum and pump motor. Lay down the machine on its rear facade, you will see a large and black hose between drum and pump motor. When you remove it, you will see that there is something that blocks water running.

thank you for using fixya,rate my answer,
