Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Ok so it sounds like your door latch may have failed. If nothing resets the door lock, then you just need to manually open the door and replace the door latch assembly. It's not easy to manually unlock the door. You'll need to use a coat hanger and pull the latch assembly from RIGHT to LEFT by slipping it down between the door and the oven frame at the top. Force the latch over to the left and open the door, then you can remove the panel in front of the door latch and replace the latch assembly.

Not sure what to tell you, you aren't going to be able to see it. If you can't use a coat hanger and pull it open, you'll need to call a technician to do it for you.
