What does F18 mean?

If the error code F18 is displayed on the AGS Indesit, this indicates a processor error: the communication between the control board controller and the motor is broken. Therefore, the washing machine Indesit gives an error F 18 on the scoreboard and does not start washing.

What can be done?

First of all, find out what is the cause of the breakdown. For this:

  • Check the connection of the machine to the network.
  • Inspect the cable and the connection plug. If there are any defects, they need to be corrected.
  • See if the hatch cover is securely closed. Perhaps, due to loose fixation, washing does not start.
  • To reset the error, reload the SMA Indesit, disconnect it completely from the network for 20 minutes. Then turn on and check the operation.

What should I do if the action fails and F18 error lights up again? How to fix the breakdown, read on.


The next thing to check is the control board. For what reasons does the card fail?

  • Breakage of the resistor.
  • Burnout of flip-flops and capacitors.
  • Fuse failure.
  • Sharp voltage surges lead to burnout of the contacts or the combustion of the board itself. If during the washing process the user pulls the plug from the outlet, it leads to similar consequences.
