You will need a volt Volt-Ohm (VOM) reader to fix this problem.
This doesn't rquire sound technical knowledge for this but you should be good at following some instructions.
This could be the effect of a number of problems. Here's a list of things to check and details on how to do it.

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

We just experienced the same problem with the buttons! I just kept pushing all the buttons until it switched over-delicate cycle was actually the one that got it going-what a piece of work this machine is!

I've been going crazy with this too. Turns out all you have to do is hold down the "options" & "select" buttons at the same time until the "lock light" (the light just above the "pause/cancel" button) turns off. I guess that's why there is a line under the option/select buttons that have a lock symbol connecting the two.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi troy crawford,
Well if it beeps for 3
times and then shut off when you press start it means that the dryer thinks
that dryer door is open. You will have to replace your door switch to fix the
problem. or you can also try closing the door normally, then
firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab,
then you press and hold the start button. many time it will works...
