Hi. I had the same problem with my Bosch washing machine and called
Bosch...was told the same thing...$99.00 for service call. I managed to fix my
problem by doing the following:
Removed hot & cold water supply hoses.
Took filter screens out of both hoses.
Removed filter from cold inlet on back of washing machine. I noticed some
oily buildup on both of the cold screens so opted to not put any of them back
Then I put hot & cold water supplies back on the wall hookup, but
crossed the lines where they came into the back of the machine intentionally so
that the hot water line fed into the cold side of the washing machine and vice
Then I ran a couple loads on "cold" which was actually hot water coming in
to the machine.
The reason I did this was that I figured there must be some more waxy
buildup inside the machine in the cold lines and hoped the hot water would melt
it like when you rinse a greasy pan under hot water.
I hope this helps you.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
If the unit is fed by both hot and cold it is possible that the single hot valve or one side of the double cold valve is not operating. Maybe a silly question but could one of the taps have been turned off inadvertently?
The other possibilty is that the pump filter or outlet hoses are blocked and the machine cannot empty the detergent water ready to refill with clean rinse water. To test the cold valve put the w/m on a cold wash cycle, open the drawer and check the water flow. To test the other part of the same valve, put the w/m on the rinse cycle that would take the softener or a wash cycle with prewash. Test hot valve by selecting the hottest cycle usually 90 or 95 degrees, check water flow thru drawer. Hope this helps.

This is for the WFMC6400, but it could help.
To manually unlock the door lock system, perform
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the lower toe panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and
locate the bottom of the
door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch
assembly is a teardrop shaped tab. Gently pull the
tab down approximately 1/4 inch,
or until a click is heard.
5. The door may now be manually opened.
Pl give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free
Could be a faulty inlet valve, or not enough pressure to operate valve,
Remove hose onto valve, and check the water is getting to it o/k,turning off the water to the valve before you undo the hose.
Hope this helps.
John-I have the same problem. I called service, they told me to unplug it (or turn off the breaker) for 30 mins, then turn back on. That should reset it. However, for me, it didn't do a thing. He said if that didn't work it's time for a service call.
