I cant see that socket inside the machine, The only thing i c is steel drum
The best way to unlock it is to use the wire method I have attached an image of the door lockIf you can't see what socket inside the machine, there will be a cover over the interlock... You can break the cover off, or you can break the interlock off as it will need changing anyway.

I managed to open the door from a box down on the right side of the machine under the door. it was written in the manual. There is grey rubber around the machine mouth which is covering this socket. i can feel it through rubber. i m not able too take that rubber off.
Contacting Bosch servicecentre tomorrow for mechanic help.
