Any idea what F-18 error code on a Bosch Logixx 8 washing machine might be?

Bosch Logixx 8 showing error message F-18. Any clue as to what this is and which steps need to be taken? Many thx

We had error code F27 for over 12 months and couldn't fix it. We've just had error code F18, drained and cleared the filter. This got rid of F18 error code and ALSO the F27 error code too.

Thank you for the info Kanji Bond.

And remember to use a BIG bucket. Mine needed to be around 8 liters.

Open flap at the bottom righthand flap.

Keep big bucket handy for water.

Remove clear plastic attached to black tube (slowly)
This will empty water from washing machine.
Once empty - no water coming out from washing machine then open big opener next to tube and remove any objects inside(I found few coins)

Put back clear plastic filler firmly inside as before.
Close big opener next to tube.
close flap

Turn machine programe knob to DRAIN.
Start washing machine.

Should do the trick....

Good luck

The Pump is stoppet but we cant open the filter it stuck how can we fix the pump then.
The filter is in front and we have to turn it but it will not come out.

If you've checked the front drainage and all seems OK, pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards.

F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine..

Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor.

Open the service flap, bottom right corner, and clean the pump.
That should do the trick
