Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.
Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.
Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.
Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

To open the door first unplug the machine then take off the front panel under the door (three screws at the bottom) reach in by the door lock and there will be a plastic tab hanging down, that is the manual release for the door. Pull it down and the door should open right up. I'm judging that the machine is flashing a code when it shuts down, often times its F11 or FdL in either case the problem is most often a bad CCU circuit board (whirlpool had quality control problems with this circuit board) There's what's called cold solder joints on the board at the points where the spade connectors and relays (5 of them) are supposed to be firmly soldered to the board. These bad connections cause the Duet washer to have all kinds of issues. To repair it you need to take out the CCU circuit board It's in a plastic case at the inside, top, back of the machine. Remove the case as a whole, it's easier that way. Then remove the circuit board and touch-up those points I mentioned. If you not good with solder techniques you can remove the board (keep it in the case) and take it, and this response, to a good appliance repair shop and they should be able to help you out. Good luck.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry- we can only deal through the forum unless you take the option to pay for someone to talk to you ;-0(
In any case 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.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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.
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!)
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!

Testimonial: "Thank you for your comments and help I opened a drain below on the left side of the machine. Water was drained out the machine Then it works normal. "
SOURCE: WASHER DOOR STUCK
Not all that uncommon on some front loaders. Yes, it is trying to lock and unlock. You can try two different things that might work. 1) Unplug the unit and let it set for 5 minutes and see if it then unlocks itself. Some units have a bi-metal timing that can take from 2-4 min. to release after the spin stops. 2) Wake up unit by pressing start or any button that starts the lock clicking. Have your hands on the door with some gentle pressure because if it unlocks you can pull the door open. Sometimes these things get mixed up and lock, unlock, and lock again. Once you get it open it usually clears up and does not happen very often.
