It would be inside the door, figured you may have it wrote down. Is the lock symbol on?

Did u get my other messages about clicking three times
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 11 months ago.

Press the "Start/Pause" button on the front of the control panel to pause the current cycle. If the door is able to be opened, it will be unlocked and the washer can be opened.

Yes I got the message about the clicking, just trying to cover all the basis.

Okay this means the door lock mechanism is at fault and will need to be replaced.

Is there a way to remove the top off the washer to get my clothes out somehow
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 11 months ago.

You need to apply force to open the door. You need to replace the lock anyways so it doesnt matter if you break it.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It opened..
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 11 months ago.

Awesome. Now you need to order and replace that lock.
