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


joyce

Spin cycle not working. smells like motor may


Open the back door and check the motor body for the heat. If so check whether the drum is freely rotating.

Then check the motor.

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.

Drum rotates and then motor locks up. Burning smell comes from machine with continued operation. Drum rotates free by hand. Drive problem or motor?


replace your belt ... the motor does not smell like burning rubber, the belt will exzude that odor.

Pop the top ... remove the front ... use care with the door switch wires.

the drum will come free of the unit.

Put the new belt over the drum, through the tensioner on the bottom, around the motor pulley.

You will need help ... put the drum back on the wheels inthe back and replace the front ... snap the top down

while it is apart, clean the exhaust system completely

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.
