Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

The door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, so....


**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) door will not open bosch nexxt 500 series - macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).


4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with tdoor will not open bosch nexxt 500 series - macmarkus_32.jpg.

**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the wdoor will not open bosch nexxt 500 series - macmarkus_31.jpgf present is usually a good plan

Once the door is open and you've removed the items you wanted. Unplug the washer for 20minutes or so and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets".

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Please oh please help... I was able to open the kick door but there is no ring attached for me to pull. My door is locked shut.

    Look for a green cord or wire dangling around in there. Grab it and pull downward when you find it.

Most likely yes. Get a good adhesive for it though and make sure it is dry before you close the door and before you use it.

Gasget came off the washer and i can't get it back on


I have the perfect solution the placing of the Retaining Spring back on the Bosch Nexxt 500 Door Gasket. It only took me only 5 Minutes after fighting with it for hours and getting nowhere. What I did was purchase a set of 12 inch hemostats (long Clamping Pliers). The ends of the Hemostats I wrapped both of the jaws with Electrical tape to prevent the Spring on the retainer from sliding up the jaws of the hemostat. When the ends of the retainer are placed on the ends of the jaws and the hemostat opened the spring is stretched. I found that If you use your knee to hold the hemostat open while placing the retainer in the groove of the gasket you can slowly release the springs and set the retainer back into the gasket without the gasket pulling off the tabs.
