The cycle has finished and the door will not release. It has been sometime since the cycle finished. I have tried turning the power on and off nothing seems to be working. How can I solve this issue?

Welcome to Fixya.
Try holding the Start/cancel button in for at least 2 seconds.
If there is another lamp flashing at the same time as the door lamp, then you will have to call an engineer.

I just had the same problem and came here looking for a solution...I went back one last time and tried to unplug. That didn't work. Then I put it on drain/spin and after a minute interrupted by hitting the pause/cancel button - and it released! I am so happy!

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.
