Bosch logixx 8 sensitive


first off never ever kick the door closed, this is not a toy. having said that look below the door you should a lower panel, remove this panel and you will see your lint filter but take that as water will run all over. just to the side you should a tab hanging down. pull on this tab it should release the door, if not try and unplug your washer for a couple of minutes and see this will reset the board, then just turn the dial to any cycle but don't push start button wait a few seconds it should release. let me back up a little your washer may have a small round cover on the lower panel, if does take this off instead of the panel you will still see the tab sticking out. i hope this helps, if these tips do not open your you may need to call for a service rech.

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Door on WD420 will not open


There is an electrically controlled lock on the door that prevents opening while the machine is in operation, and sometimes for a short period after a cycle has finished.

Sometimes this lock can get stuck and requires some persuasion to release.

This may sound odd but try it:

Make a fist with your hand and bang the door, near the latch, with the side of your fist. Do this firmly, but obviously not so hard that you will damage the door or, more importantly, your hand. This can often release the latch that should have released automatically.

LID WON'T LATCH ERROR CODE FL


With that code FL “ Failed to lock” I would start looking at the lid latch mechanism. See this link from another site for lid latch problem.

If you want to try to repair or get a better understanding of how to diagnose and repair this machine take a look at the service repair manual.

I hope this will help with your decision to try a repair or replacement.  

Good luck with your issue.
