SOURCE: door latch

look at the latch via the hole in the door where it closes to the tank? is the latch faced away from the tank? if so, then grab a paper clip and fold it so you can hook it around the latch then just pull outward towards the tank. you might need to hold that paper clip with some pliers. if it happens more than once then you will need to replace that door lock.

SOURCE: bosch 100 series will not drain

You need to check and clean the pump filter if you have not already done so.
This is located at the bottom front right of washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

SOURCE: can you tell me where the emergency latch is to

Hi, the emergency latch release is behind the small round panel below the main tub door. A string will be threaded through the pump housing and you just need to pull it to open the main door. To open the access door ( small round panel ) you'll require a small round needle shaped object or really narrow screwdriver. Put it in the small hole in the panel push in slightly and turn to about 6 o'clock...clockwise that is. The small round cover should now come off and expose the pump with the string going through a hook on the pump housing. Let me know how you make out and also if you require further assistance with this problem. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Cannot open the dishwasher door. Maytag Quiet Ser...

This model has a problem where the handle must be depressed fully upwards to allow the latch to clear completely without straining the mechanism. The lip on which you pull open the door gives the operator a better handhold to force it open even when the mechanism is not fully depressed. Do this enough times, and the plastic tabs on the handle begin to fatigue and eventually break. The handle becomes lodged but can be forced down to eventually open the washer. By this time, a specific portion of the latch that depresses a micro-switch will most likely be broken, and the washer won't turn off if the door becomes ajar. Remove the torque screws along the inside perimeter of the door and you can spread the face panel open to access the latch unit for replacement.

I have a bosch nexxt 500 series washer. When closed it clicks 3 times in series for 3 cycles and then displays e 01. I replaced the lock mechanism with a part directly from bosch and still the same


An answer found on a BOSCH support site said:

"the E:01 indicates a door lock error, make sure the door is closing tightly, you also may have a loose connection on either the door latch assembly or the control board, if these check out replace the latch assembly."

Since you've already replaced the mechanism then it seems possible a loose -connection- may be your problem. If you've already checked all this, please post back.

Manual release on door lock of a bosch nexxt series 100 washer


Try pulling door up before out. My washer does this when the rubber around the door gets a piece of wet paper under it, or I have overloaded it and the rubber gets moved. Once open, run your fingers around the rubber seal to verify nothing under it and that it lays smooth.

Bosch nexxt series 100 washer. washer willnot start three beeps and all the lights are on.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like a bad door latch/lock. It will require you to remove the front door seal spring to gain access to the part.


If this sounds like something you can repair I'll try and help in whatever manner I can or you may opt to call a pro.


Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

We have a Bosch Nexxt 100 Series Washer. The door lock is stuck and will not unlock. We have a load of clothes in the washer but are unable to get the door to unlock. I have tried unplugging the unit,...


Getting the door open is the easy part. Finding out why it won't open might take a little doing -- though replacing the door latch is also easy. To get the door open, Take an awl or something pointy and place it in the hole on the small round cover in the lower left front of the machine. Now use this to turn the cover, unscrewing it from the machine. Once the cover is off, you should see a plastic rod hanging down. Pull this rod and it will unlock the door. You can now remove your wet clothes from the machine and investigate the cause of the problem.

To manually unlock the door lock system, perform the following steps:
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the lower toe panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and
locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch
assembly is a teardrop shaped tab.
Gently pull the tab down approximately 1/4 inch,
or until a click is heard.
5. The door may now be manually opened.

Front loader washing machine the door latch is broken, it will not shut to perform cycle. Can you help?


Does it never latch and run, or does it occasionally work? Have you tried pushing on the door? Does the latch make any sort of noise? Have you recently had the boot replaced because of mold? Sorry for all the questions in reply to your question, but if the latch is physically broken then it needs to be replaced. If the question is "how do I replace a broken Bosch latch?", that's a different question.

Washing machine malfunction


The latch might be an issue . Move the dial on pump mode . Try activate the door lock with a screw driver move it to the right and should activate the machine. If that works then the latch is the issue and can easily be repaired by removing the door.
