You can manually unlock the washer door by removing the service panel below the door.<br><br>If this is a front load washer, remove the bottom panel. Reach up inside the machine behind the door handle and you will find a small round release ring. Pull it down and the door will open.<br><br>For a top load washer, remove the outer housing and release the door lock from the inside.<br><br>If the door will still not unlock after you do a normal load, unplug the washer for 5 minutes and you will reset it.

I reset by turning the breaker off then pushing in start/pause button for 3 seconds. Jiggle lid! Later model washer. Highly intermittent issue.
