SOURCE: Door locked
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.

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened. Your door lock is broken; actually you have to wait 2 minutes after the wash is over to try the door. If you cannot have access through under the machine, you can try through the top. Some models have a cord behind the dispenser tray.
Sites for spares.

Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
