Locked Door

I got so made that i just ripped it open by pulling on the flimsy handle and it actually bent the spring thats under the decorative round door cover just enough that it now works perfect. The door cover feel off and i did break the underside of the handle but i was a ble to snap everything back on. The handle cover went back on too.

Door lock - controller

Control board sends power to door lock and unlock door. Control Board is most likely the problem. Have you tried unplugging machine for 5 minutes and then plugging back in?
