Re: door trouble

The door helps the the interlock to open as the door latch as it helps the latch spring back....

All you need to do is use a screw drive to pull the doorinterlock back into place...

with the machine off of course.. just gentley play with it and it will open....

any questions dont hesitate to ask

My door lock is not engaging and my hot water doesn't come on for each cycle that it should.

Hi Janet,
I understand that your door lock on your washer is not engaging and that you're not receiving hot water in the cycles that you should be.
For the door lock, I would reset the appliance for at least 3 minutes with the door closed. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker. This may also help with you not getting hot water when you should be. Once the 3 minutes is up, turn on the washer and put it on any cycle to see if the door lock latches. If it does not then I would suggest to have an Authorized Technician come out to assess the lock and see what is going on.
For the hot water, I would check to make sure that the hot water valve behind the washer is fully open. If that is fully open and you have already reset the appliance, I would definately suggest having an Authorized Technician to come take a look at your washer.
-Best Regards-

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.


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

Usually means the door is open when the start is pressed, so either you have not closed the door before trying to start the cycle or there is a problem with the door lock

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...

Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

Bosch wfmc3200 will wash but will not spin or

hi, this is a drain pump motor issue. i would check the wires leading to the drain pump and the control board. make sure the pump wires are connected and the control board wires as well. if the wires are connected, this will rule out a communication problem and confirm pump failure.

You can also do a break point test with a multimeter on the control board to make sure the control board is working correctly.

Concerning the locked door(washer locked)**. if the door is locked, this may be a control fault. test the door lock mech for its operational value to confirm this as well.

Door Open, Door Latch Locked

yes that loop is the release.
if you pull push it and its stiff , spray some wd 40 in the unit .
its likely binding against the plastics.
so just spray away and wait a few mins.
many folks says lubing it is a fix.
