    I have the Bosch Axxis WFR 2460 and have the problem of the "door open" fault.

    I replaced the electronic door latch but the issue still exists. What else would be present in the circuit that could be broken/replaced to make the washer serviceable?

    I have lots of soldering skills and can do just about anything, I just need to know where to look

    I have the Bosch Axxis WFR 2460 "Door open" problem and replaced the electronic door lock. The problem still exists.

    What else could cause the problem. The switch has power going to it. Is there any other sensors that are in the circuit?

    I can do almost anything and have great soldering skills so if anyone knows where to start let me know.

This washer has a built in self diagnostics feature.
What you do is: With the selector knob in the off position, press and hold the "menu & select" buttons, then turn the selector knob to the "permenent press cold" until the display comes on. This puts you in the diagnostics mode, in which the last 8 errors codes will be displayed. At this point the display should read:
It gets a little hard to explain from this point on, but in my case I was able to scroll through the errors using the menu button, and I found that the were 7 errors related to the "FLOW THROUGH SENSOR".
I had already replaced the door latching mechanism without results.
Now I am going to replace the flow through sensor and see if that works, I will let you know what happens.

I have in depth information about the Axxis wfr2460 that will most likely be very helpful to owners of this machine, but I don't know how to attach it to this forum, so if you like, contact me: and I can send you the info that I have found. It explains the whole testing procedure as well as defining the error codes, which may save a lot of frustration in solving your problem.

I have this problem too. I didn't fix it but found a work around. If I push start before closing the door and then then close the door after it starts beeping and giving me the "door open" message, it starts.

I can't get the alarm ding to stop. this is the alarm that occurs when a door might be ajar.

if the door light is also on inside the inst cluster then yes a door is ajar (even thought you may not think so) , go back and open all doors even the back one shut firmly and see if it "feels right" also look into door jam of each door and see if any projected switches are maybe damaged , switches look like small mushrooms flat top narrow shaft sometimes covered with a rubber boot . these can get caught and bent on shoes and stuff as it's being loaded and unloaded easly

When you see the DE error code, it means a "door error". This is a sign that either the door is not shutting, locking or opening. Most of the time, this is a simple fix and service is probably not needed. Check for something stuck or lodged in door. Check door gasket. Check door latch.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time

Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

Freezer Door

There is usually some adjustment on the hinges. Your is termed buttbound, the door at the hinges is too close so it makes the door pop open. Take everything out of the inside door shelves if there are any. Slacken the mounting screws a little and pull the door away from the frame, make sure it sites square and tight, and then tighten up the mounting screws. With a freezer, i would also suggest fully defrosting it first.

My refrigerator beeps every five seconds...then repeats in a minute. I checked that both doors are shut and nothing is blocking the shutting doors.

try checking to make sure the door button is not stuck when you open the door. The beeping means the indicator is reading an open door. Also check the freezer side.

The soap dispenser opens but the soap is not dispensed and the dishes do not get cleaned. Can you help?

Make sure that there is nothing blocking the soap door from opening fully when the dishwasher is shut. This happened to me and I also thought that the soap door was opening during the cycle when it actually only partially opened during the wash and then popped open fully when I opened the dishwasher at the end of the cycle. So some, but not all, of the soap was used.
