Hey check to see if you can move the drum by hand,, if you cant the the bearings on the drum have gone and it is seized ..
If you can turn it by hand then most likely it is the carbon brushes on the motor..

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description you likely have a clogged drain pump/filter.
Here`s how to check since that would be the first logical place to start.
1) **Turn off the power or unplug the cord from the dryer or wall...ehichever applies to your set-up...safety first**
2) Water removal...remove toe panel. There you will find a small hose with a plug in the end for draining the pump.
3) Now bleed pump drain...A shallow pan is handy for this step.
3) remove pump filter, but be careful if you don't have a shop-vac or a shallow pan and towels you may get wet...
*Once you`ve reached this point you may have trouble removing the filter if it is really plugged up with debris. You might have to wiggle it back and forth as you twist and pull.
4) When you get the filter out, visually inspect inside the pump thoroughly with a flashlight and clean it out really well. It won`t take much to prevent these from draining. i.e. a penny, hair pin, buttons etc.
Let me know if you found anything in the pump and how you make out after that.
If you removed any obstruction, simply reassemble the unit making sure the filter is screwed in tight, run a quick rinse cycle to test for leaks before putting the toe panel back on and you should be good to go...save for any leaks.
There are other possible factors that can prevent the unit from draining or spinning out items properly, but we`ll cross that bridge when and if we get there.
Thank you for choosing FixYa, keep me posted on your situation.

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:
