Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Looking at the technical manual for that model, the E57 error is not listed as a valid error code on that model. I suspect that the main electronic control may have issues. Was the error code the same before you replaced the door lock assembly?

When I called Bosch they also said it wasn't in the manual! However by searching the web its most probably the door nagnetic catch. Or it could also be circuit board related... Or perhaps I just have to reset the machine, which I don't know how to do.

How do I access the main electronic board?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

ON that model, the door latch error is F16. I believe the control is faulty. You can reset by unplugging the machine for at least 4 hours but I doubt it will reset. Usually, when you get an error code that is not programmed, it is a software issue that requires replacement of the control.

Manual reset is below.

Close the door,
- Set the switch to the OFF position.
- Turn the switch to position 4 (at 3:00).
- Wait until the Start LED flashes.
- Press the "Spin" (BO) key and hold
- With the key pressed, select position 5
- Release key
