I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

Now the model number is ***** the lid once the lid is opened so you may not be able to get it from the unit.

but it should be on the units Use and care booklet that came with the washer.

And from just what your saying now I would suspect that the lid lock /latch switch is the issue .

To were it is not unlocking the lid as designed once the cycle is complete.

Can you see if you have the Use and care booklet for a model number?
