Washer Door will not Open

I have the GE WBVH6240FWW front load washer - I did a load of laundry and when it was time for the door to unlock it would not open. Along with not opening the machine made a winding noise. I have only had the machine for less than a 4 weeks. I need to know what is wrong with this machine. Please HELP!!

Fron t Load washer will not unlock

Usually, the door will not unlock because there is water still inside the unit.  You will need to get the water out of the tub to get the door to open.  On the bottom left corner, there is a small door.  Inside the door is a small rubber drain hose.  This will empty out the water inside.  After awhile, the machine will unlock the door.

The door interlock may be faulty. Try closing the door firmly or hit the door handle when the door is closed.
