There is still water in the tub
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
ok the reason the door is locked is because it hasn't drained, these stay locked until the water drains , you have a clog in either you drain pump or the drain hose somewhere, these machines can be a real pain to fix because the pump is way under the tub towards the front and the only way to get to it is through the back , there is a panel in the back that comes off, the pump is # XXXXX on this diagram, the first thing to do is get the door open so you can get as much water out as possible, to do this you will need to remove the top and reach down and pull the ring on the door lock, this is facing down in the machine, then clear the pump of obstruction, that will take care of your issue, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
