I used a thin screw to release the lock through the access hole and this released it after rotating the round panel a bit. The manual release on my Bosch is a nylon deal that hangs down from the top. Just pull down lightly and open door. You may have to reach up past the drain to get a hold of the nylon string. The access opening is fairly sharp.

Door wont open after cycle has finished, have put on a different cycle didnt work either, pluged out maching for 30 min didnt work either, can you help


The door does not open because there is water detected inside the machine. Water must be removed through the drain filter connected to drain pump.

Disconnect power.
If front loader remove the trim panel at the base of the machine. Top loader have access at the bottom or at the back.
Locate the drain filter access at one side.
Remove drain filter cap.
Collect water using containers (have them ready, a lot of water will flow out).
Put back cap and trim and reapply power.

Emptying water from drain lines is usually enough to unlock the door. If that does not work, then the door is opened reaching back side of the door latch (from inside the washer's cabinet). Access is from top, after removing panel, or from bottom. Some front loader has an emergency unlock cord inside that can be reached undoing completely the drain filter. The procedure requires disassembling and should be done by a technician.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

**The door typically won't unlock as a result of the unit failing to drain due to an obstruction, excessive suds, also the E13 error (though it won't always show up) kind of one in the same...usually, but the pump failing can cause this as well**

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

This is the info regarding the WTVC ( vision ) series Bosch washers which differ from other prior models.

**Unplug the washer from it's power first**

The next step is as follows,


Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.

It's as follows...


Then the filter removal...


That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before there is a small possibility the pump itself is faulty, but not likely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.

Hello - we have a Bosch Nexxt 100 Series Washer. The front loader door is locked and I cannot get it to unlock. We have a load of clothes in the washer. I have tried to run the "spin" cycle...

Easy to do....But may need a service call from a pro to fix the underlying issue.
Take the bottom right little door off and try not to cut yourself reaching in..(OH TURN OF THE POWER). reaching in after looking with a flashlight try to grap the zip tie looking plastic hanging there and pull it down gently and it will unlock.

Of course make sure you tried to unplug it first for 10 minutes and then try turning it on again in spin mode.

I use to sell bosch front loading washers for about 3 years, its a common problem on all front loading washers. Try a hot wash through the machine, if no joy then remove the seal and wash in hot soapy water. Make sure you replace the seal while its still hot from wasing if you take it off.
If still no joy, the call a service person and replace the seal. Its just one of those things.
