Look carefully in the inside front of the dispenser. You should see what looks like a red plastic string. (the type of string used on a power string trimmer) Pull on this string and the door should release.
If you need further assistance please let me know..

The manual says that you should push the on/off button to turn off the machin. Wait for 2 minutes for the door to unlock. Then open the washer door.

SOURCE: Neptune replace door switch
It sounds like a door switch problem, I have seen where they break loose from mount and door pushes switch inside. or the switch my be faulty and showing open all the time. I think u can reach the switch through the top of the washer two screws in the back will allow the top to slide back and up to remove.

It won't spin because the door won't lock. The door won't lock because the door lock mechanism is bad. I ran into this many times with the Neptune's when I was working for Sears. It is not a very easy fix. It is a pain to get to that door lock and replace it. You will most likely need a repair person to come out and fix it. I hope this helps you, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend though and let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck.
