Good Afternoon

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

Usually I need a model number or the E number which is on the nameplate so that I have an overview of which device you have. So I can give him general answers. It is possible that water is still in the device and does not open as a security. Have you already cleaned the filter below? Many Bosch devices have a black lever on the lint filter at the bottom right. If you pull down the lever you can unlock the door. Please also describe to me which symbols and which LEDs light up as soon as you switch on the device.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
With best regards,

Okay did you also read my whole full message? I also asked you two questions and gave you a suggestion.

I do not want to talk on the telephone it is too expensive.
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 13 days ago.

The telephone service is automatically offered by the system. I have no influence on it, you can ignore it if you wish. Did you read my first message completely and do everything I suggested?

My son in law opened it by just pressing 2 buttons! Please redeem my £5 and do not contact me again by phone or email.
