Must have disconnected the wires to the lock switch or damaged it it is situated near the door seal to the right were the door locks you can fixet from the top cover once taken off hope this helps you can also test it by inserting a screwdriver small dimention once inserted you shoul hear a clicking sound by pressing it start program and the light should go off if it does not then the result is damaged or you have accidentally disconnected the wires fro it.

My bosch classixx6 1200 express keeps flashing the key/lock symbol and bleeps so I cant start a programme

The door is not locked properly or the door lock switch is not functioning. In the second case the door lock functioning can be checked by bypassing the door switch (for testing only). After bypassing the switch the program can start. If it succeeds replace the door lock switch.

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open

Ok, this is the fix:

No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.

Good Luck!

The door lock flashes constantly - Indesit WIA101

Switch on machine and start its program. While it is running then turn program selector control to TOP position. After a few seconds ALL lights should flash and machine should stop. It ought now to have been reset to normal.
