I am on a farm without a water pump so pressure is gravity fed. We have bought a special mixer that is working fine.
Today we installed a new Siemens Dishwasher SN26E281au. We had the error message E18 - turned everything off and reset it.
It is 1 hour through the cycle would you kindly advise what the E18 is?

E18 is in fact a low water level.
This may be due to your relatively low water pressure or may just be an odd one off.

If it now seems to be working correctly, then I don't think you need to worry about this.

If you need more help, please just ask.
