Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "my front door will not open to my wash machine" It may be a result of debris in the pump, hence the machine hasn't completely emptied and as a result not allowing the door to be opened.

In any event, you'll need to access the emergency door release at the pump filter location, i.e.

**Unplug the washer from it's power source...safety first**

The next step is as follows,

Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.

It's as follows...

Then the filter removal...

That should resolve the problem, There is a small possibility the lock itself is faulty, but not likely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

We have mold all around the rubber gasket in the opening. How can we get rid of & prevent?


Use a 50/50 mixture of bleach and water. Use gloves and goggles to protect your skin and eyes. This will kill the mold. Try wiping down the rubber gasket after every wash to prevent mold from forming again.

Bosch 500 series new dryer has locked up. Key showing on panel, door opens, but you press every button and get the same beep.


Hi dear.
Regarding your information, I would say Child lock has been activated. I do not know what model or serial number of your dryer but you need to refer your machine's user manual or contact Bosch for deactivate child lock. I hope that helps. Thanks.

Dryer turns back on after cycle is complete


Mike, this is a anti-wrinke function of the dryer. You can turn this function off. Without a full model number I can only tell you to refer to the owners manual to disable the anti-wrinke function.

Front load washer Bosch Vision 300/500/DLX will not drain getting a code of E27 can you help. Can't find the code # in the booklet that came with it.


A code E27 means a problem with the door lock. Try unpluging the machine for an hour and see if it resets the lock.

If not remove the cover on the lower right corner you will see a white plastic pull cord. Pull the cord and pull open the door. If that doesn't reset the door lock you will need to replace the lock.

Bosch 500 series Front Load Washer Door hanging a bit lower than when purchased


Even if you do not realise it most people lean on the door as they open it, to rectify with the door open but almost in the closed position lift the door by pulling up on the door catch end, this will straiten the hinge, very common problem Regards Engineer
