On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

SOURCE: Indesit WIA 121 washing machine,
One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is
If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.

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)

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.

If you can still open the door when it's supposed to be locked it probably means that the interlock on the door catch is faulty.Easier to fix than if the door is locked shut!!...Not a big job but should be done by a qualified tech. See if you can find an independent, self employed tech...Generally cheaper and better than 'Brand Name' servicemen..Good luck..........Nomess

Error E61 is generated when the door is locked but open.
Switch the appliance off.
After 5 minutes, use a thin screwdriver to push the lock to the right and then release it.
Restore the power, close the door and try the machine on a spin programme.
If you are still having trouble after this, let me know what actually happens when you try to use the appliance. The more detail you give the better.
Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.
