HI. This is a very common error code with this particular unit. The culprit will be the door switch. The main control module cannot recognize the switch, due to the damaged circuit at the door switch mechanism. These are plastic based components that tend to ware overtime, during frequent usage. The main control module will not allow for a normal washing cycle while the door switch is in this state.The necessary actions are to have the door switch circuit replaced, asap. Due to the complexity of this repair, i recommend to seek the professional services of a local qualified Bosch technician. Mechanical and electrical experience is recommended.

    I understand how unbelievable this may be, considering the fact that it is a new unit, but this is the actual case here. This unit should be covered by the manufactures warranty. I would contact the manufacture or local sales department store for a free repair. Due to the fact that it is new, there should not be any issues with the warranty. This is just a case of a defective door switch mechanism.

I can't open the door of my whirlpool AWM 5080. I attempted to open it too early and now it won't open at all.

attempting to open it early wont do anything to it, your problem will be your door lock is faulty and the coil inside that heats up to lock the door isnt contracting after cooling meaning your door stays locked, try unplugging it from the wall for 5 mins then plug it back in u may get lucky and it will open but its not likely this will work but sometimes does, other than that u need to find a new door lock

E:27 error code. Wet laundry is locked inside the washer. How can I get the door open manually? I've already unplugged the machine and waited and tried resetting everything.

E:27 message means that the door locking mechanism has malfunctioned and/or is overheating. Unplug the machine for 30 minutes and try again. If that doesn't solve the problem you need to call the service.
