You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

Door will not open at end of cycle


Possible that the safety link to the end cycle is not released. So check from the bottom to see the lock settings and check if the release link is stuck or the lock by itself is jammed.
Use a good degreasing spray like WD40 to remove any jamming in the door.Once released use the spray to wash off all dirt or foreign material from the lock setttings. The open and shut a number of times to clear the lock movement.

Can't open the door


If the door remains locked and will not open, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_

Sometimes using the manual release will correct a momentary door jam problem and return the washer to normal operation.

If the door continues to lock and not open, you may also try unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes problems are experienced as a result of a momentary glitch in the operation program. Resetting the CCU can often correct most minor problems.

If you require further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer


This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.
