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.

Hi my name is joyce

lets try this first,
unplug machine for 60 secounds first and then lets see is the door will open, then we will address the smell of the machine, I dont know if you smell something that is in the machine that may have got hung up or if the smell is coming from the underside from motor or transmission.
let me know please if this works first.


thanks

A major short. I wouldn't use the car. Especially if you smelled a burning smell. because your car can catch fire. This is very rare to happen to a car, but take it to an electrical system repair garage.

Will drain most of water but will not spin and smell something burning


The motor is probably stuck and burned. Open the door and turn the drum manually. You should be able to turn it easily by hand if the motor is not stuck.

Remove the back panel and use your sense of smell to verify where the burning smell is coming from. The possible source of the smell is the motor or the motor control board located on the left side of the machine viewed from the rear.

Let us know the source of the smell for the replacement guide and for further troubleshooting if necessary.

EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times


Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.
