It sounds like your washer went into flood mode. That means it'll continue to drain for the next 30 minutes and won't unlock the door. Just leave the washer plugged in for 30 minutes and just let it go. After the flood mode has exited it will unlock the door and you can select a cycle on the control panel as needed. The unit goes into flood mode if it takes longer than 6 minutes to fill up so make sure you have good water pressure to the washer and if so, your electronic water valve would need to be replaced because it's restricting the water flow.
