    This is a common problem for Bosch's. Chances are pretty good there will be a burned place in the controller board. If so, you can either 1) Buy a new controller board and expect to have the problem again, or 2) replace the relay associated with the burned spot with the correct relay for 1/10 the price and likely never have the problem again. Reply if you are willing to take the board out and do a little soldering.

Definitely the board problem. Does the new board fix the problem or will the same problem recur with the new board?

Door locked with flashing red light on model W10578789

This might work try unplugging it for about 45 -60 seconds and see if it clears the problem. The red light is some type of warning and I would be safe in saying it is a safety device gone bad. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Can't select wash cycles

Is the control board displaying any fault codes?

Try disconnecting the power cord to the washer from the wall outlet for 5 maybe 10 minutes...give the control board enough time to power down and hopefully the control board could self-correct itself by resetting. No different than re-booting a computer.

If you still run into the same problem, and if so equipped, try holding down the "end of cycle" signal button for 10 seconds and see if that resets it.

I have a 2002 sunfire... and i have trouble turning it on. Once it startes it is stuck there because it will not turn at all. Once it is in this position the wipes wont work, the windows wont roll down,...

sounds like you need a new ignition, reason nothing works cause once it doese turn over n starts the car the tumbler is stick in the starting position jus not far enough to keep the starter engaged but far enough the it still trying to go trough the start process which cuts the power to everything else till the ignition returns to the on postion

did you try jus turning the ignition far enough to when the starter engages jus let go of it so the car doesnt start and see if everything else still doesnt work if it dont i belive its the igniton

also with out starting it or engaging the starter as in just turning the key on to get power does anything work?

How do I get rid of the black stuff in the door seal?

Use a bleach and water solution 50/50 and apply liberally. Place 1 cup of bleach in the washer tub, and fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach. Run the hottest wash-rinse cycle that you have; for us, it is the sanitary cycle. Follow that cycle with a normal cycle to flush out any residual bleach. Leave the door cracked open when the washer is not in use. The moisture that stays in the washer is one of the most common reasons for mold to begin growing in the washer. Allowing it to air dry helps keep it from happening.

Best regards, --W/D--

Control locked

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
