The LC means that your control lock is engaged. In the bottom right corner of your control panel there is a control lock button. Press and hold this for 5 seconds to remove the control lock.

Now the control lock won't lock the door, so if the door is locked that is a completely different issue. Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, you need to pull the washer forward and remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel. The top panel will then pull straight back, up, and off. There is a plastic tab hanging from the bottom of the latch assembly. You need to unplug the washer and pull down on that plastic tab to manually unlock the door.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.

If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
