For the the initial filling of the tub, the pump is not involved. The rinse cycle is also done with fresh water supplied by the inlet valve, although the water pump may be running simultaneously to remove the water while it is being added. Try removing front (or top) cover and find the water pump. It will have connecting hoses clamped to it. Check the hoses for blockages first. Then check the pump for any objects inside or broken impeller blades. If impeller is broken, replace it only if possible --- if not, you'll need to purchase a new pump. Hope this helped.

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

Yes, it is normal. There is water in the machine. One of the big draws for this style machine is that they use much less water than top load machines. If you stopped the cycle and opened the door, dug down in the clothes, you would find water. The machine fills a small amount of water (below the level of the door) and tumbles. As the water is absorbed by the clothing, the water level drops, so the machine adds more to maintain the water level. This is basically how the washer figures out how big your clothes load is and how much water that load needs. (Of course most sales persons at the big box stores and Sears have no idea how this works)
If you'd like, try running a cycle with no clothes to see how much water is in the machine. (It's not a lot) Now remember this: Because there is so much less water use than a top load machine, you must cut way way way back on the amount of soap and fabric softener used. Use no more than one tablespoon of HE (High Efficiency) soap (even less if it is 2x or 3x concentrate) and one teaspoon of fabric softener per load !!!!!
This should be a Fix-Ya for your question. Thanks.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

I have the same washer, WT-R801. Does the machine stop all together when the spin cycle arrives?, if so check the pump on the drain. Mine was burnt out. Its available for $61.00 delivered from Adelaide. Steve.
