    Door locked problems
    by: Anonymous

    Hi , This may help !! On the door switch there are two connectors - Ask the Tech to check the smallest one !! The wire may not be stripped enough to make a contact with the two male prongs - This is on the WFVC544 .

    You can get too the door switch by removing the spring retainer and pulling away the boot - Remove the two screws and the whole switch pulls out

    Putting the retainer back on can be a little trying !!! Two people can get it on - start the ring in the grove and finish at the spring side - A little Vaseline may help .

    If the Tech keeps coming out and replacing the switch then it may be the wire connector - It solved mine .

    I have worked with Bosch over the years - their products are of the greatest

    Great washer
    by: Anonymous

    Can't say enough about this washer and its companion dryer.
    Our first front loader, it is an excellent size (can handle a queen size comforter), efficient, nice looking and very, very quiet.
    No problems, great warranty.
