First, unplug your washer. After that find the little round plate below your drum opening on the exterior of the washer. It should have a small hole in it. Use something to gently push trough this hole and twist the cover off, Inside there you will find the drain access. Be careful, if there is water in your drum this will make a mess when you unscrew the drain access. Take the usual precautions and unscrew the drain access slowly until it is off. Remove any obstructions and replace access door and cover. Clean up any mess and plug back in your washer and try again. takes about thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much water is in the drum.

The door locking mechanism has malfunctioned and/or is overheating. It is recommended that remove power from the appliance (unplug it) for 30 minutes and try again. If the problem persist, you will need to replace the door lock assembly.

A friend of ours has a bosch gas dryer and she had the similar problem. She called the Bosch repairman and he came out to her house and sprayed the lint filter with Greased Lightning to clean out the tiny holes in it. He charged $100 and left. He said it would take care of the problem. Has not had any problems since. http://www.greased-lightning.com/ It is worth a try. Good luck.

SOURCE: dryer won't start
Had this same problem on a Nexxt 500 plus dryer. First, go outside and put up a clothes line so the wet clothes are out of the way :) LOL Anyhow to access the belt pulley fand the little switch, you have to remove the top and rear. First unplug everything. Then get a Torx T-20 driver. There are three kinds of screws so go slowly and keep them separate! Remove the top (two small screws at rear). Unplug the power cable and the ground wire. Remove most (not all!) the screws around the outer edge; several do not go thru the back panel and stay in. Finally remove all the screws in the center of the rear panel. The rear panel should left off easily. The tan box with the two thumb-tack like pins that are surrounded with springs should be easily visible at the bottom. Push the one that's out in space, away from a vertical steel piece. You should hear a little click. Reassemble (you kept the 3 kinds of screws separate, right?) and test.
