Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.
Is it loked, you know how you have to wait for two minutes before the lock unlocks and you hear a click, then you can open the door. Try a program like emptying the machine, or the program with the lowest temperature and as short as possible.
this kind of door lock is called PTC door lock.It is designed for protecing you from opening the dooe during the washing and spining cycles which may hurt you.So, if you want to open the dooe during cycles,pls press "stop",then ,wait 2 mins,you will be able to open it by then.the other situation is that,the power is cut off during working cycles,solution is:re-start the washer and directly open the door.Pls note that this kind of lock has to work under power

get a chair look behind the washer and unplug the electric cord and then wait a few seconds and plug it back up then do a drain and spin to get the washer to finish gettting the water out so you can get the door open or just rewash the clothes. You may have to try this a few times. My wife has had the same problem and this is what I do to get the washer going again.
you probably have a faulty lid switch/ locking mechanism. it is all in one. if the machine does not sense that the lid is closed properly, it will not start. you can try unplugging it to see if it will release the lid lock.
Unplug First!!!! You Can Pry The Top Off With A Big Flat Head Screw Driver Where The Seam Meets The Casing. Then You Can Check The Belt Thats What Is Most Likely Your Problem. Take The Broken Belt To Your Local Auto Part Store And Tell Them you Want One That Size And Replace.
