How can I manually unlock the door on my new GE Model GE GFW450SPKDG?

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

Just bought it yesterday :(

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

Yes

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

Remove the top of the unit by removing the screws on the back edge of the console. SLide the top back and lift it off, then reach down to the bottom of the door interlock and find the release tab on it and push it down...CLICK HERE

Hi there,
I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, I am not credited anything until a good star rating is supplied I would really appreciate it if you could do that thanks!
