Door won't open Bosch Nexxt 100 Series WFMC1001UC Front Load Washer

I put clothes inside the washer, added detergent, closed the door and selected the cycle. The Start button didn't light, but the Finished/Wash/Rinse lights all flashed and kept beeping. The door will not open, even after leaving the machine unplugged for some time. this has happened before, and you were able to give me a solution last time, but i lost the instructions.

    It doesn't have that - just Start/Pause, Bleach, and Extra Rinse. Those are the only buttons, and otherwise there's a dial to set the cycle.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    Since the washer only has 3 buttons - Start/Pause, Bleach, and Rinse, that's all I can press. Otherwise it just has a dial on the right hand side with cycle options and a single position for Off. I have tried unplugging it and leaving it unplugged for over an hour.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    I can't get into my profile because I forgot the password and FixYa didnt' email me a password, although I requested 3 times. I finally set up a new one through a different email address.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    There's no water inside the machine. Any idea how to get your webmaster to send me that new password? If I could look at the old instructions, i think that would do it. It was something about pressing 2 buttons at the same time.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    And I have read the manual and tried their suggestions before.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    I expect there is a problem like that but the last instructions involved pressing more than one button at the same time.

  • aspeh Mar 21, 2008

    Sorry, there's no water inside the machine. The suggestions in the manual don't work either. As I said before, the solution I got last time involved holding down buttons simultaneously, but it was kind of tricky. I've tried again to get your administrator to send me a password so I can get into the original profile, but still no luck. I guess that's the 5th request.

I can't access my Profile with the old solution because I forgot that original password, and my 5 attempts to have FixYa send a new one to my email have failed! That's over the last 12 hours. Eventually I gave up and started a new account to get help from you. I do remember that that initial solution involved pushing several buttons simultaneously.

    Try pressing "end of cycle" button, wait for 2 minutes before opening the door, do not force door.

    Ok, does it have a sfety unlock behind lower part of door?

    In the meanwhile:
    Here is care and user manual for your machine check for instructions on 'door won't open on page 20.
    If you got an old solution for this same problem from some other expert you can retrieve it by clicking the 'my profile' link at top right hand corner of fixyas web page, after logging in.

    Check page 17 and page 20 in the manual, follow procedure in page 17

    If you have water inside the machine, remember the washing machine must be empty for the door to open.

    either open the trap at the bottom of your machine and prepare for flood,
    or drop the grey drain hose to the floor and machine should empty.Once you open the door check the drain hoose, something may be obstructing it

    Typehttp://www.fixya.com/users/ 'your old name here"
    put your old name as last , for example this is mine.

    It is possible that you will see the solution there, or if you know the name of the expert contact the one who give the solution

    Old post from kurmudjiim72 :
    "On the bottom right-hand side of the washer, there should be a door
    that contains the drain cleanout. Open the door and in the upper
    right-hand corner of the opening, there should be the end of a plastic
    handle. It may barely be showing, so look closely. Pull it down with
    your fingers or a plyers and your door should release."

It sound as a malfunction lid switch, that should be replaced.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch.
Good luck!

Manual release on door lock of a bosch nexxt series 100 washer


Try pulling door up before out. My washer does this when the rubber around the door gets a piece of wet paper under it, or I have overloaded it and the rubber gets moved. Once open, run your fingers around the rubber seal to verify nothing under it and that it lays smooth.

My bosche mod # wfmc1001uc wont spin with clothes in it.


Hi,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.
