I had a similar problem...with the added issue of the door not locking at all. I cleaned the filter and all is well. However, it took me hours to find the 3 screws everyone was talking about The screws are at the very bottom of the washer, under the lip, facing front. If your machine sits on a pedestal drawer like mine, they are located between the machine and the pedestal. I hope these pics save someone a little time...

Did you get any error codes on the control panel? this sounds funny but have you cleaned the trap out? You have to clean the trap of the washer every so often (it is not mentioned in the manual. You take off the front bottom panel and you will see a round trap door to the right turn it and pull out and you can clean the trap make sure you put a pan under because water will come out as well. When the trap is full the cycles won't run. Usually this happens when there is water in the machine but lets try this anyway. Before you try this, unplug the machine, let it sit several minutes and plug back in, see if this helps before removing the filter trap.

Getting the door open is the easy part. Finding out why it won't open might take a little doing -- though replacing the door latch is also easy. To get the door open, Take an awl or something pointy and place it in the hole on the small round cover in the lower left front of the machine. Now use this to turn the cover, unscrewing it from the machine. Once the cover is off, you should see a plastic rod hanging down. Pull this rod and it will unlock the door. You can now remove your wet clothes from the machine and investigate the cause of the problem.

The door will not open if the machine detects excess water in it. Run the drain or spin cycle to check if water is being expelled. If necessary check the pump filter for obstructions and the outlet hose for blockages. If this does not work you may have a problem with the pressure system, the door lock itself or a crack or break in the handle and it is not catching the lock mechanism, let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.
