Bosch Wlk 2401cu Door Not Releasing


Recommended Posts

My washer stops its cycle at 1 minute left with door locked. Banging on the panel around the door jumps the cycle to CL and the door opens. Its getting harder and harder to open however. Any Suggestions as what might be wrong and how to access the part for repair?

The washing machine usually just waits for a bi-metal strip inside the door interlock to cool down. When it does, the door locking mechanism releases and the light goes out. It sounds like this mechanism is sticking, although I have not had this problem personally on a Bosch. I couldn't guarantee it, but my guess is a faulty door interlock, which should be easy to get to (usually unpeeling the door seal from the door frame) The washing machine must be unplugged though as the door interlock usually has mains power to it.Some door interlocks also have a plastic or rubber tube connected to them which goes down to a plastic pressure chamber bottle attached to the tub. This allows it to sense whether the water has all gone (using air pressure) before allowing the door to open. If fitted, then potentially, a blockage in this system may cause the door not to open too but I wouldn't expect a knock to release it if that was the case.
