SOURCE: Washing Machine Door won't open
I had the same problem. I went through all the steps on this thread to no avail. Finaly I just pryed the thing open - with no damage, thank goodness.
Once open I saw that the latch in the door didn't move when I pulled the handle. The problem it seems was in the latch on the door itself. If you end up this problem and want to get wet clothes out, just stick a flat-head screwdriver, behind the door latch into the horseshoe-shaped metal bit and lever it open - no prying necessary.
Not sure how I'm going to fix this permantely but at least I got my wet clothes out and can do laundry as long as I keep the screwdriver near by.
To fix - I'll either need to figure out how to disassemble the door and replace the latch mechanism, or just buy a whole new door.

Sounds like the front door switch has come out of place, or the actuator is out of place. If you can take the front cover off to get to this switch, you should be able to get it back into place pretty easily. Hope this helps, chad

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

I had the same problem about a year ago, I replaced the door switch but didn't fix it, I found the brushes in the motor has worn out - Replaced the brushes and fixed the problem.

before replacing run a empty load with alot of bleach in it and then clean boot with a mold cleaner like kitchen cleaner w/bleach replacing the boot isnt something you want to do unless you have to do it (not easy) and the cost of the boot if you need any more help let me know and i will guide you thru the process of the boot
