Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock mechanism. Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock mechanism is a tear shaped tab. Gently pull the tab down about 1/4 inch or until a click is heard. The door can now be opened.
Furthermore, why is my washer locked? If the door or lid won't open at the end of the cycle, then the lock mechanism may be at fault. Most washers will have a manual release to unlock the mechanism and allow you to open the door or lid. The release is normally accessible from below the door lock, or on some models, from inside the soap dispenser housing.

The most common cause is water left in machine. Try running a spin/drain cycle. If this fails, the machine can be drained by placing the washing machine drain hose lower than the drum (into a bucket or tray). The door interlock has simply jammed.
How do I reset my washing machine?
To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a “reset” signal to all the components.
