hello expert, thank you for your reply. However, on my washer model the siphon referred to seems to be deep inside the washer.. I have carried out all of the tasks referred to,and still get the code e18. It seems that I will have wait for the Bosch technician tomorrow to resolve the problem. Thank you for your suggestions.
