E18 error code is a time out draining fault.

What you need to do is check the filter at the bottom of the washer on the front.

You need to place a bowl under there and slacken the filter and slowly drain the water from the filter.

Once the water is out you can then fully remove the filter and clean out any debris in there.

Then look inside the chamber were the pump goes and at the back you will see the impeller X shape.

Check to see if theres anything blocked in there.

Once its all clear refit the filter and retry the washer and fingers crossed this will cure the fault.

But thats what the E18 error code means its a time out draining fault.
