Question about Washing Machines
The start button is not activating because the door latch has been pulled open before the machine allowed its release. We need to reset the latch lock as it is not broken so the machine recognises that the door is shut.

SOURCE: Door locked open
Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

It is possible that you have a problem with the door?s sensor, maybe it?s turned off or maybe some water fell on it. This is the reason why the micro controller interpret that the door is still open, and that?s why the washing procedure does not start. You have to find the manual and determine where is the location of the sensor and then see in what state it is (Turned off, wet, or damaged)

SOURCE: Broken front door
you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.
