According to the manual, you have to:

2. Turn selector to Drain or Spin
3. Press the start / pause

Wait until program ends.

Open door.

or

Press "start / pause" until the start / pause light flashes.

SOURCE: WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer: how do i unlock door? bosch washer was just deliv...

Hi, welcome to fixya. The emergency latch release is behind the small round panel below the main tub door. **Unplug the washer or turn off the breaker before attempting any suggestion given here please** To open the access door ( small round panel ) you'll require a small round needle shaped object or really narrow screwdriver. Put it in the small hole in the panel push in slightly and turn to about 6 o'clock...clockwise that is The small round cover should now come off and expose the pump with the string going through a hook on the pump housing. Be very careful as the edges are very sharp. A string will be threaded through the pump housing and you just need to pull it to open the main door. Let me know how you make out and also if you require further assistance with this problem. If you don't require further assistance and this indeed was helpful to you, please allow a moment to rate this solution I've given accordingly. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: We have a Bosch Nexxt 100 Series Washer. The door

Getting the door open is the easy part. Finding out why it won't open might take a little doing -- though replacing the door latch is also easy. To get the door open, Take an awl or something pointy and place it in the hole on the small round cover in the lower left front of the machine. Now use this to turn the cover, unscrewing it from the machine. Once the cover is off, you should see a plastic rod hanging down. Pull this rod and it will unlock the door. You can now remove your wet clothes from the machine and investigate the cause of the problem.

Hello - we have a Bosch Nexxt 100 Series Washer. The front loader door is locked and I cannot get it to unlock. We have a load of clothes in the washer. I have tried to run the "spin" cycle...


Easy to do....But may need a service call from a pro to fix the underlying issue.
Take the bottom right little door off and try not to cut yourself reaching in..(OH TURN OF THE POWER). reaching in after looking with a flashlight try to grap the zip tie looking plastic hanging there and pull it down gently and it will unlock.

Of course make sure you tried to unplug it first for 10 minutes and then try turning it on again in spin mode.
Thanks,

The door is stuck on lock. Will not finish rinse cycle.


The door lock is design to stay locked if the water level is above a certain level, therefore it is possible that you have a blockage in the outlet hoses or an obstruction in the pump. At the bottom of the front panel there should be a flap that will expose the pump and possibly a small hose to empty the w/m manually. Check you manual for the procedure.

E13 error- can't unlock the door


To manually unlock the door lock system, perform the following steps:
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the lower toe panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a teardrop shaped tab. Gently pull the tab down approximately 1/4 inch, or until a click is heard.
5. The door may now be manually opened.

BOSCH washer, the door won't unlock and is reading E:04


I used a thin screw to release the lock through the access hole and this released it after rotating the round panel a bit. The manual release on my Bosch is a nylon deal that hangs down from the top. Just pull down lightly and open door. You may have to reach up past the drain to get a hold of the nylon string. The access opening is fairly sharp.

Beeping on spin cycle


It is most likely out of balance, could be for many reasons.
1 could be too many heavy items such as jeans, towels, etc in one load.
2 could be the machine or floor is unlevel.
3 Could be a balance sensor needs replacing.
