    the door will not open. The machine tripped the breaker during cycle. It appears that a garment got caught in the door. Powering down does not release it. The locked light is not on. The model # is H567A4A0A(3B).

    We were able to get it run another cycle, but it just stopped at the spin cycle.

Try to unplug the unit and open the door manually by pulling a plastic ring attached to the door lock.
you can access the ring if you open the top cover of the unit and feel the ring where the door lock is and pull it down.

if you were able to open the door, you can check the clothes and remove the one that was jammed on the door. then test the unit for normal operation.

Water is leaking during the wash cycle. Nothing shut in the door. Been happening with the fuller loads.

try wiping or cleaning off the bottom part of the door,i've seen pieces of hair on the door and water leaks down the pieces of hair through the door,if that's clean then check for a hole in the rubber boot seal,most likely there's a hole in it

Have you tried unplugging the unit and waiting for a minute and then plug it back in. The load might have been off balance and caused that condition. Once it has been reset you might be able top end the cycle.
