Always check to see if the water waste (located normally at bottom right) has no foreign objects in their such as bobby pins, coins etc It has happened to me 3 times (first time cost me $150)

There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.
I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.
Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

To change the seal the easiest way is to take the front of the appliance off. Remove the kick plate at bottom and you will see some screws holding the front panel on remove these Then open door and remove the screws holding the door lock on and unlip the seal by releasing the clamp on the front. The front should now lift off, if it doesnt then pull out the soap drawer and behind that at the bottom of the drawer is a screw holding the front on remove this then push the front panel down then it will lift off You can now take the clamp holding the seal to the tub off. Fit the new seal, fit the clamp to the seal and tub. From here, rebuilding is the reverse of the strip down.

SOURCE: CANNOT GET DOOR TO OPEN
Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.
**The door typically won't unlock as a result of the unit failing to drain due to an obstruction, excessive suds, also the E13 error (though it won't always show up) kind of one in the same...usually, but the pump failing can cause this as well**
**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**
This is the info regarding the WTVC ( vision ) series Bosch washers which differ from other prior models.
**Unplug the washer from it's power source...safety 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 small possibility the pump 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.

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.
