Remove the bottom panel and reach up to the door latch. There is a tab in there you can pull to release the door lock. Then try unplugging the machine for a few minutes. If this doesn't work you will need to replace the motor control.
The error code E41 means the control board is detecting an open door switch. It might be due to a broken wire harness, broken door lock/switch assembly, or in worst cases a faulty control board.
Unplug the machine or disconnect power. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing
the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring of the retaining hoop then remove it.
Carefully peel off the part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the
door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain
access to the door lock and switch assembly.
Remove the screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel. Once the
screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it
away from the front panel.
Take the door lock/switch assembly out of the front panel then disconnect the door switch harness then short circuit the terminals by putting a jumper wire between them.
Put the door lock/switch assembly back into position in the front panel then secure it with the securing screws previously removed. Properly put the eased part
of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it
with the retaining hoop. Reconnect power and run a test cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly
(part #131763202) to address the problem if the washer works fine with
the door switch bypassed. If not, replace the control board.

Take a look at the door switch actuator. Located right above the latch in the washer's front panel. If the switch actuator is broken off, the machine will just beep and not start. If broken, part # is 8182634 and is very easy to replace, you just remove the outer clamp from the door seal, remove the three screws from the door latch, pull back the seal and access the latch. There are three wire harnesses, but they are all keyed differently, so no way to do it wrong.
