I have a Bosch 300 Series front-loading washer. When the door was open, the door locking mechanism somehow engaged and now I cannot close the door.

If your door refuses to close and the handle appears to be fine, this could likely be a fault with the door lock. You will need to replace the lock.

Bosch dishwasher shx46a06uc-30

the unit will try to complete the last command it was engage in before it went in the overfill safety mode. you must perform a cancel drain cycle to reset unit to default setting. Remember the drain cycle is 2 min and must be completed to reset main control. however if it went into a overfill status you have a leak and it generally comes from the pressure chamber on the lefthand side of unit where the water enters tub

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...

Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

I have a Bosch dishwasher purchased in 1996 or 97. The dishwasher stopped working part way through the wash cycle. The on/off light does not come on. The on/off light does come on, at times, when you...

It sounds like the problem maybe with the door lock circuit. This is a safety feature that is the door lock mechanism, it completes the circuit to allow the dishwasher to run when the door is locked. Reading your trouble note you state the light goes out when you attempt to close the door. Light out means there is no circuit through the door lock mechanism so the dishwasher will not work. Take a look at the lock with the door open, make sure it seats properly, though it maybe opened internally, this would require a professional to fix.

Door Open, Door Latch Locked

yes that loop is the release.
if you pull push it and its stiff , spray some wd 40 in the unit .
its likely binding against the plastics.
so just spray away and wait a few mins.
many folks says lubing it is a fix.
