The door on my front loader Bosch washer is locked. How to override?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Bought in 10/09. WFVC5400UC/19

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

All i WANT RIGHT NOW IS TO GET MY COMFORTER OUT BECAUSE IT IS MILDEWING AS WE SPEAK. I CAN GET SOMEONE TO FIX IT BUT THEY ARE ALL BUSY

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is there an override switch?
