Those locks are on a timer that until the wash is complete it does not unlock the unit.
Unlike a normal washer where you can open it at any time and throw in some cloths you may have forgot, this one seems to take up to to minutes after you stop the unit mid wash.
If it is taking more then the 2 minutes then the door lock may be faulty, try unplugging the unit then plugging back in, do not force the door open as this will result in a broken switch.

Good Luck!

The only things that can cause a scanner error on this unit is a complete scanner harware failure or the scanner lock. With the unit on lock the transport lock and unlock it a few times quite forcibly. Then leave it in the unlocked position and power off and on again. If the light returns then at his point I think a new printer will be needed.
