Question about Bosch WAS24460UC Front Load Washer
Hi, 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..
Open the small flap at the front bottom right of the machine. DONT unscrew the circular white knob yet!!! Use the small black hose to drain the machine into a tray, by removing the small cap on the end of the hose. You will have to use a tray, rather than a bowl because the hose is only short, and keep emptying the tray.(put a washing up bowl next to the machine, so you don't have to carry the tray.) If water does not come out of the hose, then gently unblock it with a piece of wire or fine knitting needle. When water finally stops coming out of the hose, it is time to gently unscrew the white knob anti-clockwise, and pull it forwards. Now you can clear the debris out of the pump rotor, which is behind the white knob. Check with your finger that it can rotate freely, then replace the white knob firmly. Make sure the small cap is replaced on the end of the hose, clip it back into place and put back the cover panel. If this doesn't work then there is a blockage deeper in the machine, and dismantling will be required.
From your explanation so far about the F18 and the various repairs that has been carried out on the washer which includes replacing the pump and replacing the hose attached to the pump which ought to solve the problem instantly, but has not then i think you should under the warrantly clause ask for a replacement without further delay because repair is not suppose to take as long as this under a normal circumstance and am not sure they are approaching the problem in the right manner because this is a factory fault problem that requires total replacement.. To make matters worse, even the repair man feels replacing the pressure switch will still not solve the problem.
