Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer
Did you ever get an answer for your problem? The door of my washing machine will not open either and I have tried everything. A repair man came to check it out and apparently it is the controller which will cost me $520!! I bought the machine 2 years ago - come on. So I am hoping it might be somehting else....
Control board sends power to door lock and unlock door. Control Board is most likely the problem. Have you tried unplugging machine for 5 minutes and then plugging back in?

I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.

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.

You said, you tried to use the delayed wash last night but when we went to it this morning we had error code F70. There is a small possibility that the door was not closed properly, but we forgot to check. We opened the door, closed it and restarted it on a non-delayed wash and it started just fine. The manual for the washer is not very descriptive with the error codes, it simply says to restart and if that doesn't work call the repair man (what is this a microsoft windows machine?).
“F” codes other than F20, F21 or F22
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains,
call for service.
Let me know that it works for you or if you have any questions.

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.
