Hi there,
If the the release clutch knob seems stuck, then the only thing that will unstick it is brute force.
You can try using a lever to help give you more leverage on the knob. Or get someone with strong hands to turn it for you :)
Check for a buildup of lint around the mechanism and clean it away to help prevent any sticking in future.
