Whirlpool washing machine lid lock will not turn off and

Customer Question

Whirlpool washing machine lid lock will not turn off and allow the lid to be opened. Washer seems to work otherwise. It fills, washes, drains, and spins. It just won't unlock. I've run it through three complete cycles, let it sit for several hours after completing cycle, and unplugged appliance for several hours while at work. Still, the lid lock light stays on.
I cannot give the washing machine model or serial number because they are under the lid, and the lid will not open.
Thank you!

Yes it is, just thought you might have it written down somewhere. can you post a picture of the control panel, that can help, we may be able to fool the machine to unlock the door.
