    thanks for your suggestion but this unit is computerized and there is no manual way to run through the cycle(s). there is simply no power and therefore no way to release the locking mechanism.

That's an interlock issue..only way to do that is to unplug the whole machine, and then run the timer through it's paces, manually, to near the end of a rinse cycle, then restart the machine.

should pick up the timer, which is probably jammed, and let you open the lid.
