I can’t open my Samsung front loading washing machine. The red light w the key symbol is on

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

10 months

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

Yes. It should be a simple unlock. I should have to take anything apart.

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

I have unplugged it and tried to power it up again to release it
