Bosch Logixx 8, Error F:57.
what does it means?
If there is an f57 error code, in 80% of cases the problem is related to the motor control board. But do not rush to buy a new one for your Bosch washing machine. When you solder the components of the board, they may be damaged as a result of the strong vibrations of the machine. Therefore, you need to monitor the correct and stable installation of your washer. In many cases, an experienced master can bring the device back to life. It will significantly save your budget. Think before you start an independent repair. Remember that the new electronic unit is quite expensive.
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!!
