JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Unless it's an easy fix

Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Do you have the model number please?

Also has it drained the water out?

If you stop it and wait a few minutes will the door open?

It's beeped now but I can't open the door

Forget that's it's opened now, anything I can do if it happens again?

Ok give the door handle a good bang with the side of your fist and see if this shocks the door into releaseing.

As what happens is sometimes the door locks stick and cause this fault.

But as you now have the door open just see how it goes. But if it keeps doing this then the door lock will need to be replaced to cure this. Ive replaced many of these for this fault that you have here.
