The water supply to the house was cut off during a washing cycle. The door cannot be opened. I have run the washing through a new cycle and still no success with opening the door. Have tried the emergency release procedure with no success.

What happens when you select the spin, or drain cycle? Does the washer drain the water and commence with the cycle? If the water does not drain then the door will not unlock on it's own. The pull cord should open the door regardless. If the water is not draining, remove the lower right access panel and check the strainer for excess debris. Pleazer Appliance...

Testimonial: "Water was draining and I followed the process for the emergency procedure for opening the door - but no success. I ended up getting a guy to have a look - he pulled off the latch mechanism (which is an enclosed unit) and took it and the door away. We ended up having to get a new door with its new latch unit - cost was $300 plus their labour costs, so I'm not impressed!"

The heating element has blown - this has happened to mine on 3 occasions all covered under extended warranty - regularly occurs about once per year. Now hear is the interesting bit - do you have a microwave near the unit ? If so move it because our Bosch engineer said that the microwaves can have an effect on the unit. If it is true then I will know next year about this time !

Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.

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.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Removing cap first BUT READ THE SECOND SECTION BEFORE CARRYING OUT!!!
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions-
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very
least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
SECOND SECTION!
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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.

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!)
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!

SOURCE: bosch front loader washing machine door not opening

The door will not open if the machine detects excess water in it. Run the drain or spin cycle to check if water is being expelled. If necessary check the pump filter for obstructions and the outlet hose for blockages. If this does not work you may have a problem with the pressure system, the door lock itself or a crack or break in the handle and it is not catching the lock mechanism, let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

Bosch Logixx won't start - Stuck on "Close the door" even though door is closed.


Open the door, look along the top stainless on the door and you should find the ENr number (model number) etched into the stainless, may need to give it a wipe and look at an angle to read it. Post the ENr and that should help with diagnosis.

I have a Bosch Logixx 8 1200 When i turn it on it bleeps and f 37 comes on but it is in a warm dry kitchen, the door won't lock, when I hit the temperature button twice the frost light appears ?


this a problem water level switch
Remove the air hose from the water level switch, and blow into the hose,as hard as possible, to clear any debris that may have accumulated in the hose.

Remove the lower panel, and remove the filter from the drain pump and check and clear any debris from the filter and the interior of the pump, and hoses.

Intermittently Operating With Little or No Water


Most likely the water level detector (the sensor that tells the dishwasher to stop taking more water) is failing. It is giving early signals which confuses the dishwasher and it turns water off. Most of the time these problems are linked to grime collecting in the inside of dishwasher.

You can clean it by using a dishwasher cleaning powder. Follow instructions on satchet. YOu may have to manually fill the dishwasher before starting it. If this cleaning does not fix it, then you may have to call the technician. You may be under warranty on this (hopefully)
