Assuming you have allready checked the operators manual, check again on page 19 for "Accoustic Signal".  To deactivate the signal select a program press two of the option buttons and hold until a short signal is emitted.  There you have it.

Hi,
This indicates the sensor near the lint filter gets too hot. This is usually caused by bad air flow.
Try running the unit without the vent hose attached. If the problem goes away the problem is in the ducting.
You may need to have it cleaned out. May be lint filter is clogged due to the use of dryer sheets or fabric softener. You can try to clean the filter with Windex.
If neither one of this suggestions resolves the issue there may be a problem with the sensor, there may be heat escaping somewhere within the dryer. This is only resolved by technician.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

SOURCE: I have a bosch next 500 series washer and the door

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "the door will not open. I have tried running the drain cycle and that doesn't work either" ...there is likely something obstructing your pump/filter hence the door cannot open.

With bosch as with most front-load machines, if the pump is blocked or the unit doesn't drain sufficiently, the door will not unlock.

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy the non-drain and manually unlock the door issue.

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

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)

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 or wear chain-mail gloves).

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. ( if it's too tight it can be turned by pliers...gently )

**DOOR RELEASE** you'll see a green ring attached to the pump, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but if the unit has water in it, getting it out first is usually a good plan )

5. There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.

6. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap.

7. After inspecting for any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.

**Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks**

Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

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 :)

SOURCE: my bosch nexxt 500 series electric dryer is not

We had the same problem. Cleaned out lint filter and still no heat. We took off the back (lots of screws and had to take top off to get back off). If you are looking at back - at the bottom left there was a red reset button and it clicked when we pressed it (when we pressed it again there was no click). Worked fine after. This solution came from internet. My brother-in-law changed setting to "extra dry"- we usually just used 20/40/60 setting. I think it overheated.

SOURCE: door will not open bosch nexxt 500 series

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) 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 the aid of pliers.

**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if 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.

Bosch 500 series new dryer has locked up. Key showing on panel, door opens, but you press every button and get the same beep.


Hi dear.
Regarding your information, I would say Child lock has been activated. I do not know what model or serial number of your dryer but you need to refer your machine's user manual or contact Bosch for deactivate child lock. I hope that helps. Thanks.

Bosch E13 error on washer - shows e-13 and door will not open.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E13 error in your Bosch WFMC washer is a drain error and is displayed when the drain time exceeds & the washer is unable to drain so the door won't open sometimes when this error is displayed. You will have to clean the drain trap in the bottom right hand corner. You can stick a straighten paper clip in the access panel located inside the front bottom panel through the whole and then turn the access panel counter clockwise to unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. After everything is cleaned and the error returns then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do you clean the drain in a bosch next 800 series washer?


Almost all Bosch machines have a manual drain trap that usually can be accessed from a small door in the front panel. Open the door and you will see the trap access.

Bosch 500 Washer - Can't Open the Filter Door


I did it! The trick was to push a small nail into the hole and push in on the filter door while rotating the door...all at the same time. The original problem was the water not draining and the washer displaying code E04. Just like a previous solution stated, there was one knee high sock in the drainage pipe.
