Even though your Bosch washing machine is new, the door lock may be defective and will have to be replaced. It should be a warranty repair

According to the manual, you have to:

1. Turn program selector to "off"
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.

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.

Bosch washer door is locked


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.

Bosch washing machine WVT 126S, error F01 on the start. Please help


F01 means the machine thinks that you have pressed start and the door is still open, so, either the door is not completely shut or you will need a new door interlock (part number 182154) you can get the part by calling 0844 892 8979 (UK) or http://www.bosch-home.co.uk/customer-service/spare-parts-accessories.html. Or the connection to the door lock is not loose or detached.Hope this helps

How do you clean the drain in a bosch next 800 series washer?


Almost all Bosch machines have a manual drain trap that usually can be accessed from a small door in the front panel. Open the door and you will see the trap access.

Bosch WFK 2401 Need to slam door several times to lock door


Sounds like you need the electric "door interlock" replaced. It is a simple matter of seperating the front of the machine enough to unplug the interlock mechanism, remove the two screws holding the mechanism in place and remove it from the back, reverse the procedure to install the new "updated" replacement part (- Bosch #170935 btw. about $37.00 from Sears). - time: approx 1/2 hour if you aren't mechanically inclined.
