take the top off the machine,put your hand down to the reigon of the door lock and by using a small screw driver the catch on the door can be forced open without doing any damage.

The motor is not starting this is the humming noise not a good sound, try it in spin to see if the motor runs in this direction. You may have a motor issue because of the water leaking on the motor?
Now that you have the front panel removed you can look for leaks, you will need a flash lite, start a cycle on the small setting and look for where the water is coming from. If it is coming from the center of the tub above an aluminum case which is the transmission you need a tub seal, if the water is coming from somewhere else it could be a pump, or hose, or ?

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.

Remove top cover, 2 screws are hidden behind 2 plastic covers at front of lid, push the lid back to remove , undo the screws that hold the dispenser, and slide the console panel to the right, then you can access the control board and reset the button,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Are they actually 'jammed on' or are they just lit?
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
