Even if you do not realise it most people lean on the door as they open it, to rectify with the door open but almost in the closed position lift the door by pulling up on the door catch end, this will straiten the hinge, very common problem Regards Engineer

SOURCE: I have a bosch next 500 series washer and the door

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "the door will not open. I have tried running the drain cycle and that doesn't work either" ...there is likely something obstructing your pump/filter hence the door cannot open.

With bosch as with most front-load machines, if the pump is blocked or the unit doesn't drain sufficiently, the door will not unlock.

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy the non-drain and manually unlock the door issue.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

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 sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)

2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

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. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves).

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. ( if it's too tight it can be turned by pliers...gently )

**DOOR RELEASE** you'll see a green ring attached to the pump, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but if the unit has water in it, getting it out first is usually a good plan )

5. 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.

6. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap.

7. After inspecting for 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.

**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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Bosch 500 series new dryer has locked up. Key showing on panel, door opens, but you press every button and get the same beep.


Hi dear.
Regarding your information, I would say Child lock has been activated. I do not know what model or serial number of your dryer but you need to refer your machine's user manual or contact Bosch for deactivate child lock. I hope that helps. Thanks.

Manual release on door lock of a bosch nexxt series 100 washer


Try pulling door up before out. My washer does this when the rubber around the door gets a piece of wet paper under it, or I have overloaded it and the rubber gets moved. Once open, run your fingers around the rubber seal to verify nothing under it and that it lays smooth.

Front load washer Bosch Vision 300/500/DLX will not drain getting a code of E27 can you help. Can't find the code # in the booklet that came with it.


A code E27 means a problem with the door lock. Try unpluging the machine for an hour and see if it resets the lock.

If not remove the cover on the lower right corner you will see a white plastic pull cord. Pull the cord and pull open the door. If that doesn't reset the door lock you will need to replace the lock.
