There is a little white circle plastic lever that feels like an upside down lollipop about 2-3 inches below the door lock behind the front panel.. Pulling that down will unlock the door.
To access from the top of the washer remove 3 screws to the back top of the washer, push it back and then lift the top off the washer. Facing the washer slide your right hand down the space at the front corner where the lock is located. Feel around for the circular part at the bottom of the door lock and gently push it down. The door should then manually click and unlock.

To access from the bottom of the washer. Facing the washer, Remove the 3 screw to the very bottom that is holding the small access panel in place. This allows access to the bottom of the washer. Once removed, reach towards front and upwards to where the door lock is located. Feel around for a circle plastic level. Pull the level down. The door should click and you should be able to open the door.

Only driver door can be opened with manual key.

Solution: One of the 15 amp purple fuses was blown. Fuses are located inside glove compartment, the interior end has to be removed releasing the two locks.
