Question about Washing Machines
Ok, something is overheating. Maybe the motor, maybe the electronics. With the machine pulled out and cover removed to expose the motor, run it again. When it stops, unplug it and touch the motor. Is it real hot?
Before you do this test, try to spin the drum manually with no load inside. It should spin freely, making no noise. Any friction or noise is your problem.
If the machine passes these tests, it's electric. Look for a capacitor to see if it is swollen or dented or leaking. Don't touch the contacts, it holds a charge even when the machine is off and unplugged.
If the cap is good, now you're down to board problems. Time to call a technician to check out the board. Sometimes they will have a spare for testing.

F37 is because of operating the unit below specified temperatures.
Pressing the temperature button twice shows a snowflake and sets a defrost function.

SOURCE: Hi, my front loader washing
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.
On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.
Here`s how to deactivate it...
1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )
2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.
3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.
Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.
Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.
good luck going forward.

I have a solution.You just keep turning the white knob anticlockwise. Use a pair of pliars to aid the turning keep going clockwise and anticlockwise if it gets stuck. It will rotate. Just opened my one and found a lollipop stick and a collar stiffner. Good Luck.
