The house is under renovation, I cannot find the manual. Does anyone know what F18 erro code means, and why my machine is no longer operating.

Thankyou so much for your assistance in this urgent and pressing{once clothes are washed}matter
Update: There are online web help sites but they all demand money{bills to pay and all that, who can blame them} and I am slightly broke.

Are there any online free advisors for Bosch washing machine faults and repairs...?

Thankyou so much..
Update 2: It has a load of jeans in there, but I dont think its overloaded, although the fan belt may possibly have broken.

There is a website of local repairers and maintenance men, I cant remember what its called.
Update 3: Thankyou Annie, it was just the filter located at the bottom of the machine that needed opening, emptying and clearing. Its working again and I will remember not to overload the machine, although this is difficult as it is a large family size model, and quite a good efficient machine. Phew problem solved.... show more Thankyou Annie, it was just the filter located at the bottom of the machine that needed opening, emptying and clearing.
