A problem with my Bosch washing machine

My machine (wfl 1662) finishes the wash, but the "finish" light doesnt turn on- which means that the door is locked. so if i want to take out the clothes, i have to disconnect the machine and wait for a few minutes until I can open the door. In other words- the machine doesn't "know" that it finished the wash. (the "active" light is on all the time) how can i solve the problem?

It usually takes 2 minutes after the wash to open the door; do not force the door. Doesn't matter if the active light is on. Just try.

Door stuck closed after wash is done

If the water in the machine is above a certain level a fail safe on the door lock will not allow it to be opened. Check the filter, make sure the machine has completely drained. Obviously, there may be a problem with the lock itself but try this first.
All the best

Washing machine malfunction

The latch might be an issue . Move the dial on pump mode . Try activate the door lock with a screw driver move it to the right and should activate the machine. If that works then the latch is the issue and can easily be repaired by removing the door.

michele99, So when you put it on drain, do you here the machine trying to drain the water? After it finishes draining, (you have to wait a few minutes, it should then have a blinking light

Goes through washing cycle but doesn't dissolve the tablets or cleans the clothes.

Clean out your outlet filter; this is to be done regularly once a month, depending on your usage. Re your tablets not disolving, try using front loading washing powder. Also refer to your manual..........
