Question about LG WM-1480FHD Front Load Washer
In my case this problem was caused by a broken handle in the door assembly. I agree with dovi that you can release the catch from inside the machine if you remove the soap dispenser unit. You can then remove the door and disassemble it to see if the plastic trigger is broken.
If the door handle is broken you cannot exert any force on the metal catch - you think you are triggering the mechanism but you are not.

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
