After trying all the above, making sure that as much of the water has been removed as possible, you can always use the manual door release. This is located behind the soap powder tray.
Push to open as you would normally when adding more soap powder, pull the tray out as far as you can.
Press down on the yellow portion in the tray and this should enable you to then pull the soap tray completely out.
Once out you should see what looks like a small grey plastic circle with a rectangular hole (ideal for a screwdriver) turn this and your door should open.

The machine knows it dint't finish the washing cycle, and, because it may be possible that water is still a lot inside, the door is locked.
If you are shure the door can be opened without the water coming out by the door, simply disconnect it from the electrical supply and wait a few minutes until the door unlocks. (you will hear the unlock click)

Testimonial: "It worked, thanks!"
SOURCE: Hi, I can't open the
I am unable to find that model number for your unit but I did find another that was close and is also an LG Tromm click this link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=28702783&pkw_=basket&model_id=5520802&NewWindow=1 you would have to remove the bottom panel the one that has the drain filter attached to it by removeing the screws that hold the panel in place. Once the panel is removed then you would reach up along the side that the door lock assembly is on and you will see and feel a cord with a ring that you would pull and then your door would open once you pulled this cord. In some units if you unplug the machine for 7 minutes this also causes the control to reset and sometimes this also causes the door to be able to open once the control is reset. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks Rick
