Bosch 1400rpm (2009) door won't open


Recommended Posts

When trying to open the door the catch gave way but door didn't open. I waited as usual on the end of cycle time delay before opening. The door catch isn't broken but won't push back into position. The door opening mechanism is exposed but what do I do to get it open

Hi Peter. To open the door you need to activate the same thing that the door latch is when you pull it. One of those plastic things will either pull or push against the spring tension to open the door. It may be that you need a tool in order to be able to do it because you no longer have the leverage that the door handle usually gives.

Thanks Hawkeye66. That feature is usually very rare on washing machines because it involves more expensive door lock. It's very common on Miele but I've not seen it on cheap ones. It would be nice if they had it though as it is useful.
