I'm having a hard time understanding what is happening with my Bosch. Mine is filling and then immediately emptying out. Then the door unlocks but the timer indicates 45 minutes left (or so) and the door lock light is still on. Usually the only cycle that spins now is the spin cycle, but this doesn't help me get the soap out of the clothes still in the drum.
When the machine fills but doesn't rotate, the water level seems low as well. I had a repair man out who thought it might be the door latch sensor needing replacing (honestly, my toddler was pushing that button repeatedly), but I don't think that's it.
What does work: I unplug it for a while. Then if I'm lucky and the laundry Gods are shining down on me, I can wash normally (usually I'm luckier on Permanent Press but I always used to use the Cotton side). However, once I turn the machine "off," that's it all the problems persist so I have to wash it all, one load after another.

i have the same problem with a bosch at a rental unit i just moved into. the door is locked up until the 25 or 41 minute cycle depending on the cycle used.
$500 to fix the motor, YIKES! and its my responsibility, yikes again.
definitely a motor problem not a door problem.

Remove the cover on the
lower right corner, you will see a white plastic pull cord. Pull the cord and
pull open the door. Don't force the door, you could damage it. If
that doesn't re-set the door lock you will need to replace the lock.
Pl click if helped.
