Possible failure of the drain pump/valve in the dishwasher. So make sure there is power to the washer when the program comes to drain cycle, if power is absent the main program controller is faulty.
If voltage is present then the drain pump/valve must be taken out and back-flushed, then tested or otherwise replaced.

What does f18 mean


The F18 code means there is a water pump issue causing it not to pump. It could be a blockage.

F18 is time out on drain, check the pump filter for foreign objects (coins etc-behind flap, bottom right of front kickplate) and also check for blockages on outlet hose (especially if connected via spigot, directly to sink U bend)

I was washing today and at the end of every wash tere was a code of f18 flashing on my screen .what should i do


F18 means pump is blocked or broken, clean filter first, no result change then you have to change the pump.

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.

Why is the fault F18 error code on my bosch washing machine flashing?


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. Good Luck!!
