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.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com
The most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.
also worth checking the spring inside the door lock mechanism attatched to the door, as these can become dislodged.
To open the door you will either require an engineer as the repair necesitates the removal of the lid. The engineer will ensure the machine is disconnected from mains of course. He will double check power is off before reaching down inside the machine to press over the door latch, which is just visible as a white pointed object, poking through the door mechanism. The engineer will push it towards the door seal.
Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.
Have a nice day.

Unplug machine, take lid off and locate the door lock. You will have to use a small screwdriver or something to release the lock. Then replace your door handle.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
