Possible that there is a fault in the controller unit that does not activate the door switch. It can be a fault in the circuit or it can be silly as a connection fault, loose joint, fault lock mechanism or a door switch fault.

According to the manual, you have to:

1. Turn program selector to "off"
2. Turn selector to Drain or Spin
3. Press the start / pause

Wait until program ends.

Open door.

or

Press "start / pause" until the start / pause light flashes.

I'm having a hard time understanding what is happening with my Bosch. Mine is filling and then immediately emptying out. Then the door unlocks but the timer indicates 45 minutes left (or so) and the door lock light is still on. Usually the only cycle that spins now is the spin cycle, but this doesn't help me get the soap out of the clothes still in the drum.

When the machine fills but doesn't rotate, the water level seems low as well. I had a repair man out who thought it might be the door latch sensor needing replacing (honestly, my toddler was pushing that button repeatedly), but I don't think that's it.

What does work: I unplug it for a while. Then if I'm lucky and the laundry Gods are shining down on me, I can wash normally (usually I'm luckier on Permanent Press but I always used to use the Cotton side). However, once I turn the machine "off," that's it all the problems persist so I have to wash it all, one load after another.

2. that the unit is leveled.

Hi, welcome to fixya. The emergency latch release is behind the small round panel below the main tub door. **Unplug the washer or turn off the breaker before attempting any suggestion given here please** To open the access door ( small round panel ) you'll require a small round needle shaped object or really narrow screwdriver. Put it in the small hole in the panel push in slightly and turn to about 6 o'clock...clockwise that is The small round cover should now come off and expose the pump with the string going through a hook on the pump housing. Be very careful as the edges are very sharp. A string will be threaded through the pump housing and you just need to pull it to open the main door. Let me know how you make out and also if you require further assistance with this problem. If you don't require further assistance and this indeed was helpful to you, please allow a moment to rate this solution I've given accordingly. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

I have a small older bosch front load washer that after 3 loads ,when the door isclosed the water does not come on


I never had a front load washer but I have changed several lid switch. When the door is not closed on a top load washer a switch in the door area will shut the washer down. I did run across this on a search of front load washer..
The door lock secures the washer door shut during operation. Once the washer door is closed, the washer can begin operating. If the door lock is defective, the washer door will not latch properly. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Inspect the door lock for damage. If the door lock is damaged or does not latch properly, replace it. To determine if the door lock has failed electrically, use a multimeter to test each of the door lock switches for continuity. If one of the switches does not have continuity, replace the switch.
I saw in another post sometime the switch is under rubber
but I am just repeating what someone else said. Hope can be of some help.

Door will not lock


Possible that the door lock is jammed or there is no trigger from the door switch or lock. Also this can be due to fault in the control panel, check the input/outputs from the controller unit.

When I depress the start button and hold the door will not "click" to lock so the load will not start. is this a simple relay replacement ?


This can be mostly related to the controller unit but you can start by checking manually the door lock and the door switch before we can suspect the controller or even the wiring to the door switch and lock.
There needs to be a feedback so that the program can RUN.

Pull off the front bottom panel and check your service sheet to verify error codes. You probably have a bad door switch.

Bosch wfmc3200 will wash but will not spin or


hi, this is a drain pump motor issue. i would check the wires leading to the drain pump and the control board. make sure the pump wires are connected and the control board wires as well. if the wires are connected, this will rule out a communication problem and confirm pump failure.

You can also do a break point test with a multimeter on the control board to make sure the control board is working correctly.

Concerning the locked door(washer locked)**. if the door is locked, this may be a control fault. test the door lock mech for its operational value to confirm this as well.
