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.

    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 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

    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!

How do I clean my washing machine? My clothes and the washer have a mildew odor.


Add the entire packet of "TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" directly into the tub (no laundry) and close the door.

Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
This method of "TUB CLEAN" is *not* from a service manual but has been the best method for cleaning out LG washers more than a year into incorrect detergent usage.

After this--use the correct amount of "HE" detergent & perform a "TUB CLEAN" cycle every (4) months using the *tub clean* option on the control panel.

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
  2. Do
  3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.
  4. FL
  5. The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
  6. Sd
  7. The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.
  8. PF
  9. The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  10. Nd
  11. The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.
  12. LO
  13. The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  14. Lr
  15. The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional.

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    We have an Aquasmart top loader and our clothes, mainly dark items, are being covered by a scum after washing. We have put the machine through the clean cycle, but this has not made any difference.


    I have found with my aquasmart that if you use the 'high efficiency' the water does not cover the clothes sufficiently which is why the soap residue (noticeable more on dark clothes) is visible. I don't use high efficiency. even on conventional sometimes I still have to check that the water level is high enough. Also **use only liquid, low sudsing detergent and do not put it on the clothes-use the dispenser only. As for my machine... Time for the repair man to check the sensing I think

    Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?


    According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

    1.
    Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
    Tips.”
    ■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
    small items. Items should move easily through the wash
    water.
    ■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
    can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
    through the wash water.
    2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
    into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
    dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
    the washer.
    3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
    if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
    powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
    liquid detergent.
    4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
    bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
    automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
    cycle.
    ■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
    (250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
    ■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
    manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
    ■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
    let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
    ■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
    left in the dispenser. This is normal.
    NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

    5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
    dispenser, if desired.
    ■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
    capful of fabric softener.
    ■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
    Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
    during the Extra Rinse.
    ■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
    ■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
    left in the dispenser. This is normal.
    NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
    6. Close the washer lid.
    7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
    8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
    9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
    10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
    11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
    “Modifiers” section.
    12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
    the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
    NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
    Power, the washer automatically shuts off.


    The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.

    Tar-like substance appearing on clothes and washine machine


    i havnt seen any flashes on this id look closley at what your putting in the washer as there is nothing in the unit its self as far as mfg that will cause this also try this 1. Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
    2. Inspect the gray colored seal/bellow between the door opening and the basket
    for stained areas. Pull back the seal/bellow to inspect areas under the seal/bellow.
    3. If stained areas are found, wipe down these areas of the bellows using the following
    procedure:
    a) Mix a dilute solution of liquid chlorine bleach and water (3/4-cup bleach in
    1 gallon of warm tap water).
    b) Wipe the seal/bellow area with the dilute solution.
    c) Let stand 5 minutes.
    d) Wipe down area thoroughly with a dry cloth and let the washer interior air dry.
    e) Please note:
    - Do not use bleach at full strength for cleaning surfaces.
    - The use of rubber gloves is recommended when cleaning for prolonged
    periods.
    4. To begin the clean out cycle, do the following:
    a) Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
    b) Be sure door is closed.
    c) Open the dispenser drawer and remove the detergent divider from the main
    wash detergent compartment. See the Use and Care Guide for instructions.
    No additives will be added at this time. You will be required to add them at a
    later step.
    - For Whirlpool Duet, select the “Power” button.
    - For Kenmore Elite HE products, move to the next step.
    d) Select the “Normal” wash cycle.
    e) Select the hottest wash water temperature available, (not all temperatures will
    be available).
    f) Select the highest spin speed available.
    g) Select the additional or 2nd Rinse option (if available).
    h) Press and hold the “Start” key for 2 seconds. The door will lock and filling will
    begin. NOTE: The water will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock
    and re-lock and the cycle will continue.
    i) Once the filling has begun again, open the dispenser drawer and immediately
    add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the main wash detergent compartment.
    The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow through the dispenser.
    NOTE: Do not add any detergent to this clean out cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of
    bleach per month will cause product damage over time. Addition of bleach without immediately
    starting the will cause damage to the product over time
    5. Once the clean out cycle has begun, allow the cycle to completely run.
    6. After the clean out cycle is complete, leave the door slightly open/cracked to allow
    for better ventilation and prevention of future odor issues.
    7. If you removed the detergent compartment divider, be sure to replace the divider
    to the correct position.
    NOTE: If necessary, the clean out cycle may be interrupted by pressing the “Pause/
    Cancel” button. This will stop the cycle. A “Rinse and Spin” cycle must then be run to
    thoroughly rinse the remaining bleach from the unit. Failure to do so will cause damage
    to the unit and clothing added to the next cycle.
    In addition to the clean out procedure, always do the following to prevent future odor
    issues.
    1. Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent.
    2. Leave the door slightly open after each cycle to allow for better ventilation and
    drying of washer interior.
    3. Repeat this clean out procedure only on a monthly basis, if necessary.

    He4t - monthly bleach cleaning cycle


    Washer Monthly Maintenance Procedure:
    This cycle uses higher water volumes in combination with liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washing machine.
    1. remove any clothing or items from washer
    2. CLOSE door (duh)
    3. open dispenser drawer and remove the detergent compartment and set aside. No laundry products will be added at this time. You will be required to add only liquid chlorine bleach at a later step.
    4. For Kenmore Elite HE products press a specific combo of buttons.
    • Select Rinse/Spin program
    • select low spin speed
    • select warm/cold water temp.
    • select 2nd rinse option
    • push the "end of cycle" signal button 4 times within 5 seconds to start the cycle
    The machine will fill and run a short sensing cycle. This will take about 3 minutes.

    Step 5
    1. The washer will provide 4 short tones. Check the: ESTIMATED TIME REMAINING display for the codes indicated below:
    • if "Ab" (add bleach) displayed in the estimated time remaining window (you'll hear 4 short tones) proceed to Step 6.
    • if "rL" (remove load) displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining window an error tone will sound. The door will unlock.
      -open the door and remove the items from the washer.
      -continue the cycle by pressing the START button.

      NOTE: The water in the unit will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue with another check for items in the washer.

      The machine will fill and run a short cycle to determine whether any items have been left in the washer. This will take approx 3 minutes.

      the washer will repeat Step 5 until it can determine that there are NO items n the washer and will display "Ab" (add bleach).
    6. Add liquid chlorine bleach.
    • If using the maintenance procedure for the first time, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.
    • If doing a monthly maintenance procedure, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1/3 cup bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.

      NOTES:
    • Water will be flowing into the dispenser drawer when the bleach is added ... this is normal.
    • Do not add any detergent to this cleaning cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleachw ill cause product damage over time.
    7. Once the cleaning cycle has begun, allow the cycle to complete. An est cycle time will appear on the display.

    8. After the cleaning cycle is complete, leave the door open, clightly to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

    Detergent dispenser


    As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie
