Bosch Washing Machine Door Stuck and How to Open it

Hello everybody it’s ‘Lurgs’ here welcome to my website and how to open a stuck door on your Bosch washing machine, so if your door is stuck and you cannot get it open there’s a couple of different options available to you, right let’s get cracking.
Before you get started make sure that the child lock isn’t on check out the link above now.
Now this model is the Bosch ‘VarioPerfect Serie 4’ but it should also be the same on Siemens washing machines because they are the same company, now if the door is stuck on your Bosch or Siemens washing machine then this could be because there’s been a power cut or maybe it’s got a fault, now the first thing you need to do is switch off the power at the plug, now in most cases turning off the power at the switch will actually release the door and then you can open the door, but if not you can try the second method, now before we try the second method there is a link above now about how to remove the dispenser drawer on your Bosch washing machine you can give it a good old clean, now what you do is you go down to the bottom of the washing machine on the right hand side you’ve got this small flap here, so just push that little divot in and then pull the flap out and what you’ve got here is you’ve got an emergency release cord, so just take a flat bladed screwdriver and then what you do is you place it into the hole there, and you just pull it downwards and then you should hear the door release, I just heard the door release there and now we should be able to open the door, fabulous, whilst I have a nice cup of tea there’s a link above now about E18 error code which is basically a blocked pump filter i’ll explain you how to remove that, give it a good clean and put it all back.

thing you need to

If that still doesn’t work you can try some wire or some string and try and get that in between the seal on the door and try and release the door mechanism, that way if that still doesn’t work then you can get brutal with it and use a large flat bladed screwdriver and literally prise the door open, but I wouldn’t recommend that, maybe it’s time to call out a washing machine engineer!
