Bosch shpm65z55n dishwasher thinks the door is open

This is a fairly new washer. We’ve had it less than 6 months. Last night I thought I ran a cycle, but it never started. Here’s what now happens:

I held down the start button till the display read 01, but the light wouldn’t stop blinking. I inspected the seal and found food in the corner of the door. After cleaning the gasket and removing the debris it started normally.

WELL….Finally have it working. For how long I do not know. I came across this forum after doing research on BOSCH website on that dreaded red flashing light, but nothing came up. The light reminds me of the back in the day when that was the signal the xbox no longer worked. It was terrifying then as it is today because of the money paid out. We paid about 1700 for this thing because it has auto air. Duuummmbbbb. Im watching it as I type…. worried the red flashing light will go back on. Ive been fiddling around with it while my h sleeps as he refuses to deal with it he gets so mad. So two hours later I figured this out with the help of the forum. Its the %#*@ door. Yep..So I noticed if I pressed on it then it would run. I tried to sneak away after 10 min as my calves were starting to burn, but nooo. It went back on. So I decided to clean both sides of the inside of the door. AND cleaned the seals though I never saw anything there… Then I wiped the top of the door latch even though I didn't t see anything. THEN I noticed that the door has give. Like I can grab it and move it a bit Side to side…I opened it and closed it a couple times…hard…just for kicks. After that I did a reset. Then I redid my settings. Then closed the door and it seemed to click better this time. And voila. I can go to bed. Its about 11:30 pm so grateful. My brother said stubbornness runs in the family but sometimes its worth it. I am still calling Bosch tomorrow because I have an extended 5 year warranty and they will probably take 4 years getting here…

"I had this issue where the door latched, felt secure, but whenever I would try to start a cycle the InfoLight stayed solid for a few seconds and then started flashing and it would never start. If I would hold the door in it would run, but as soon as I would release the pressure it stopped again.

I fiddled with everything, but eventually found that a cup handle was extending out the back a bit. I moved that cup handle and it started working. Really confusing that it still wouldn’t work despite the good latch. In any case, just make sure there’s nothing obstructing."

Hold the start button down until it reads 0:01, leave it until the red light at the bottom turns off, then power back on, choose a cycle, press start and make sure it beeps, then within 3 seconds and close. That solved it for me.
