SOURCE: can't get locked door open
For the door locking problem, on several of the Bosch washers, there is a round plate at the front bottom with a hole in it. One can place a thin phillips screw driver or some thing that goes in and turn the plate while pressing the plastic latch behind the hole to open the plate.
There is a mecahnical door lock release mechanism you can see or reach inside. Open the washer door while pulling on that. You can atleast get to your clothes inside.
There is a filter/drain mechanism inside this area. The manual and the postings here suggest a few more things you can do further to remove junk/blockages in this, but that is a messy job.

There should be a small door at the front bottom of the machine, open it and unscrew the plunger. try that first as there could be a blockage.
The machine will not spin until the water is drained out.

Get some buckets
Take the drain hose off the back of the machine, undo any clips so that it lays it down flat
Put the end into a bucket and the machine will drain off.
When water has stopped running switch off the machine leave it for a few minutes and then put it into a spin cycle
Leave the hose in an empty bucket
That will dry the clothes and relaese the dorr
Your next problem is getting the obstruction out of the drain pump
For that you need a man that can

SOURCE: Smell of 'dirty'water when door
Some washing machine guys call this a "Bug" in the machine. Usually caused by a build up of bacteria from the baterial washing powder you use. The easy way to fix this is to use an anti biological cleaner.... Which is what dishwasher tablets are.
Take 3 dishwasher tablets, throw them in the drum, put the machine on the hottest wash you can select and let it run the full cycle with no clothing in the machine. This will probably fix your problem.
