Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer
The machine was somewhere in the cycle when the "E:" message appeared on the display. There is no number with the "E:" message. The door is locked. Turning the machine off an on, unplugging it, and disconnecting the hoses did not resolve the problem. What does this error mean and how can it be resolved?
Just had the same problem - door locked with "E:" message. Before trying any other method, check whether the detergent you are using is the HD type. If not, the wrong detergent is being used and probably is causing the door to become stuck. Simply pour warm to hot water in the detergent opening (about 1/2 cup once or twice) and it should immediately solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick then try other suggestions. Regardless, use only HD detergent.

With my machine it was the case of putting too much detergent in the machine. Oversudsing. So in the from of my machine on the lower right hand bottom corner, there was a round plate with a little hole in it. I put a small screwdriver in it and turned the plate and removed it. There was a piece of plastic hanging down, pull on it and try to open the door. It seemed to work better if you tried to open the door from the bottom. Once open, remove all clothes and run 1 cycle without anything. I also poured hot water down the detergent area to clean it out. If the clothes are wet, then put only a few in there and run them thru. Basically, these machines should use detergent that have the HD mark on them, and only about 2 tablespoons of detergent for a full load. Hope this helps...
