SOURCE: How do I clear code
I had to call a certified bosch repair center. They sent someone out who entered some sort of code to put the washer into diagnostic mode. Once it was there, the code cleared and my washer worked again.
I asked for the code, and the repairman wouldn't give it to me.

SOURCE: i'm getting an error message
I had to call the repairman. He said it was an overheated solenoid in the door lock. The "repair" is to let the washer cool for about 10 minutes (unplug it), then try again. If you're still getting the code, you'll probably need to call a repairman like I did. Though once he put it into diagnostic mode the code "cleared" and it works again. The final fix is to replace the lock.

The door locking mechanism has malfunctioned and/or is overheating. It is recommended that remove power from the appliance (unplug it) for 30 minutes and try again. If the problem persist, you will need to replace the door lock assembly.

SOURCE: Bosch vision 500 clothes washer:
Error code 27 is a bad door lock try opening and closeing the door to try and make the error go away if this does not work then try unplugging the unit for 7 minutes and then replug the unit back in. If the error code still does not go away you would need to replace the door lock assembly unit on the machine this machine also has a 1 year warranty. If the door is locked on your unit you can remove the lower panel and there is a white plastic that hangs down by the drain filter pull this cord in order to open the door of the unit. The issue says that it is either from the connection of the door lock assembly to the contol board, the door lock assembly itself, or the control. If your unit is warrantied I would call for service and if you have any further questions message me them back Thanks again

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a Bosch WFVC5400 "Vision" series washer. Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance you require.
I will start by letting you know though the E27 & E95 error codes are not common nor are they listed in the service manuals, they are known to be associated with door lock and communication errors. These can be due to the door lock mechanism failing and/or is overheating. It is recommended that you unplug the appliance for 30 minutes and try again.
The E01 error indicates a door lock error directly. Though again this can manifest from an improper draining and not necessarily a lock problem.(drain time exceeded).
If the unplugging the uit fails to rectify the errors, you will need to first check the pump/drain lines and if all else fails replace the lock assembly unfortunately....but that's getting ahead of ourselves.
Try this first...
The next step is as follows,
Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.
It's as follows...
Then the filter removal...
That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before, there is a possibility the lock itself is faulty, but not likely.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.
**NOTE:too much "He" detergent or the use of non-He detergent can also cause too many suds which are opposition to proper operation of these machines and can and DO cause all kinds of error codes**
Once the issue is resolved I recommend running the unit through the hottest temperature possible on the longest cycle possible and add some product called "washer fresh" or "Affresh".
Both are designed to remove residule soap buildup inside the tub assembly and prevent errors associated with soap suds, which usually manifest in errors with the pump and lock.

You first of all need to
check the pump filter. This is
located at the bottom front right of washer. Look for a drop down flap or cover, once
located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean. Of course be prepared for a lot of water and
junk. The pump itself is directly behind
the filter housing, check there to see if anything is stuck in the plastic blades. It should turn freely. Your washer door will not open if there is
water in the washer, just some kind of precaution, so don't force the door.

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.
