Question about Bosch Washing Machines
You need to drain water out of the machine.
Disconnect power and first work on the drain hose at the back of the appliance, use a bucket to empty water placing the hose at the floor level.
Second part of drain job is done accessing the filter. the filter is connected to the drain pump. This is accessed through the service access located in front of the machine, on the lower side.
Remove the trim at the base of the machine using a lever, then unscrew the filter cap located at the left hand side, ensure that you have a container ready to collect the water.
At that point, try connecting back power and unlock door. Door should open.
If door still does not unlock, then the door interlock, the pressure switch or door lock may be responsible. In that case most Bosch have an emergency lock located near to the pump:

Try to open the door manually:--
Door lock manual release hole is held to the right side of the drain pump by a clip.Simply pull on the cable to release the door.To remove the access cover to use the door lock manual release.Insert a pointer object or too into the hole ,push it to release the latch and rotate the cover clockwise.-------------- Yes check the pump.
Some interlocks prevent the door from opening if the drum is moving. The mechanism that detects this is called a ****** unit and it is located around the motor pulley. It connects to the interlock via a cable assembly. If the ****** unit is broken in the "on" position it may be preventing the interlock opening. Visually check and try to activate the mechanism by hand.
Other interlocks have a secondary locking system which ties in with the pressure switch. If this system is faulty - caused by blockages in the filter, pressure vessel or the thin rubber pipe running to the pressure switch the machine "thinks" its still full of water and wont allow the door to be opened. Take off the top cover, examine the interlock from behind and detach any rubber pipes or cables to try to open it from inside. If all else fails, the interlock itself may be faulty and will have to be broken open. A replacement interlock unit and/or catch will of course be required. ------------ Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.
