SOURCE: Door locked

After trying all the above, making sure that as much of the water has been removed as possible, you can always use the manual door release. This is located behind the soap powder tray.
Push to open as you would normally when adding more soap powder, pull the tray out as far as you can.
Press down on the yellow portion in the tray and this should enable you to then pull the soap tray completely out.
Once out you should see what looks like a small grey plastic circle with a rectangular hole (ideal for a screwdriver) turn this and your door should open.

SOURCE: Fixing broken door lock of Indesit W123X washing Machine

no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Bosch 500 series front load washer less than 6 months old. Getting code E27 when turning it on... suggestions before I call service?


E27 means there is a problem with the door lock.

Unplug the machine for 30 minutes and try again. If the error code returns you will need to replace the door lock assembly. Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.

Replace the door lock assembly on the washer. Refer to your washer manual for the correct part numbers.

Check to see if your Bosch washer is still covered under warranty. If so, you could receive free replacement parts and service for the faulty door locks.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answerr).

Won't spin


Close the door firmly and make sure the machine is turned on. Press and hold the Chime and Extra Rinse keys until the control beeps to enter Service Mode. All indicator lights will turn off except the "Door Lock' indicator signifying the door is locked.

Press the Rinse & Spin key then rotate the cycle selector knob in either direction to display the most recent error codes if there's any. Press and hold the cycle selector to display the number of cycles since the error occurred. List down at least five most recent codes and post it here for us to determine what the problem could be. Press and hold the Delay and Chime keys for three seconds to clear the list. Press the Rinse & Spin key again to exit diagnostic codes list.

Press the Spin Only key while in the Service Mode to begin the Board Input Test. Set the rotary cycle selector to Super Wash then press it to display the position of the door switch. "OP" will be displayed if the door switch is open or "CL" if it is close. Replace the door lock/switch assembly (part #34001265) when "OP" is displayed even the door is close. Press the Spin Only key again to exit the Board Input Test.

Press the Spin Speed key while in the Service Mode to begin the Board Output Test. If water is present in the tub, set the rotary cycle selector to Quick Wash then press it to turn on the drain pump and drain the water. Press the rotary cycle selector again when the water is fully drained to turn off the drain pump.

Press the Delay button to turn on the motor and the Delay indicator light. The machine should tumble clockwise then counterclockwise with 5 second durations each and 2 second intervals. Press the Spin Speed key again to exit the Board Output Test.

Press Off or press and hold Chime and Extra Rinse keys for three seconds to exit Service Mode. Unplugging the washer will also exit Service Mode.

Perform the tests above and let us know the results for us to determine the cause of the problem or the necessary action to undertake and give you the specific and detailed instructions on how to fix it.

Delay start light is flashing and door will not


It is your control board that has failed. It is time for a new machine. It is a common problem. If it's under warranty get it fixed but the machine is starting to wear out.
Unplug and wait for a clicking sound this will be the electronic door lock releasing.
