F18 means Clean the detergent/solution pump or,check that the outlet pipe/drainage hose is not blocked.

Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
  3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked or restricted.
  4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe and one way valve to a sink waste connection if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
  5. Access the pump from under the lower rotor arm and protective grille and check that the impeller is free to move and is not clogged or restricted by debris or sludge. Clean as required.
  6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. It is a good idea to take digital pictures of the pump assembly before attempting to work on it or remove it so that you can refer back to it when you reassemble the unit or replace it with a new unit at a later date / time.
8. Remove and check the electrical connections to the pump and make sure they are in good order.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. If they are then clean them thoroughly.
10. Then remove the pump and check motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. Also check that the pump impeller vanes are in good order and not blocked. If necessary replace the pump with a new and identical unit.
11. Carefully reassemble the pump observing the correct placement of gaskets, seals, O Rings, hoses and securing straps, electrical wiring.
12. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.

2006 FORD F 150 CREWCAB AIRBAG LIGHT FLASHS CODE 18


LFC ( Light Flash Code ) 18 is for the PAD ( Passenger Airbag Deactivation ) lamp. This is the yellow indicator above the radio.

If you have had the center trim panel out ( the part around the radio ) lately, I would think the light was not plugged back in, this is usually the cause of the LFC 18.
If it was removed without due care, it could be the wires are broke and need to be repaired.

Fix for Airbag error code 18 on Ford F150


The thread above is using the wrong LFC ( light Flash Code ) table ( it is shown as post 2000 mfgr date, but does not say what MY ). It is not a good idea to use a LFC from one MY for another, they can change at any time ( 2005 might not be the same as a 2006 ).

LFC 18 has to do with the PAD ( passenger Airbag Deactivation ) Lamp in the top of the center trim panel ( above the radio ).

Have you had the center trim panel out recently ? If so, you might want to remove the center trim panel, and check that the lamp is plugged in.

This is the LFC for a 2006 MY truck.
