Hi Alan, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

There is a door release catch you can pull behind the flap at the bottom of the washer (where the drain filter is), you just pull the catch down to manually open the door.

This type of fault is unusual on a bosch appliance, when the door would not open did the door lock light flash or remain solidly lit?

Ok so the door light is now showing illuminated at the end of the wash but the door would not open?

What else was shown on the display?
