The problem may be attributed to a timer that going bad, but before assuming the timer is the problem, check your lid switch. The most COMMON cause of the symptoms you just described is a lid switch malfunction or lid strike (actuator) problem. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that will not drain.
The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike" or "Actuator") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because it does NOT have a lid strike (actuator) and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This type of switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator rod by bending it slightly.
NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
NOTE: Banging on the machine or slamming the lid can actually cause more harm than good. You can dislodge the washer casing from the frame, damage the lid, or damage the fragile lid switch and associated components.
The average price of a replacement lid switch is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices vary between sites so shop and compare. If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. This is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that you only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you are having trouble removing/locating the filter access cover on your Bosch Nexxt washer, correct ?
I've posted my solution to error code E13 which should in turn explain to you how this covered should be removed...the first 3 steps should explain/illustrate how this is done, you can omit the rest if you like or review for cleaning procedure.
**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs, and a pair of mechanics gloves are recommended due to EXTREMELY sharp edges...safety first**
Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water that is typically the reason for a locked door, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free...it will not rotate unless the release tab is pushed in. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).
4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a green ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan )
There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out
5. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.
6. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
7. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.
Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.
Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

Make sure dial is switched
to 'off'. Unplug your machine, then plug
it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other
hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just
the start button flashes. If if doesn't work, do it again.
To get the clothes out if
you are having trouble, open door manually. Near the bottom of this cover is a small
hole. Insert a piece of wire into this hole, and push in gently. While pushing,
turn the cover clockwise, it will came off. The door release is a narrow white plastic
strip hanging down on the right; Pull down on this strip while pushing in on
the door, the door lock will release.
Click helped if helped.
