If you are still looking for a solution to this here it is:
In these machines if you try to change the setting of the washer knob without letting a cycle finish which is already set it may happen that the unit won't function properly and hence the unit needs to be reseted. There is a reset procedure for the same and let me know if you would like have the same.
If the door is not opening it is advisable to reset the unit first and then try opening the door which should work and also the door handle won't break then.
If you have already replaced the door handle on your machine it is fine or else you may want to order the same from appliancedesk.com

Door handle of washing machine broken


if clothes are still in washer? and machine has finished cycles? then handle broke so unable to open ??? your best option is to unplug/ and if necessary disconnect water supply hoses then remove the top screws from rear panel which also secure the top panel as you will observe ? then pull backwards top panel and loft off ? you now have access/visual of the door catch inside front machine look?? at the catch and you will see how it locks ? you can lever the catch gently and door opens to fit a new door catch is easy diy and not expensive if you are confident usual problem these break ? is the time delay micro switch sticks with age /moisture try dw40 and work plunger b4 you refit door back after replacing handle/catch assy

Door will not open. lock handle floppy.


take top off and see if you can feel for the door peg sticking thro the interlock and operate by hand.
also, you can chew away the door handle and operate the door peg with a small screwdriver.
the door handle kit will need replacing anyway

Broken front door


you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards

Broken door handle...


I have the same problem and I have a makeshift solution which I was able to do in 45 minutes and total cost was less than $1.

Step 1: Remove door from machine.
Step 2: Disassemble door with the two plastic donut shells. This means removing 6 or so flathead screws. Take care to note alignment of glass parts because they aren't perfect circles and only fit one way.
Step 3: Pull out pin that threads the spring and broken plastic handle remnant and metal latch piece.
Step 4: Discard broken plastic and replace the rest of the apparatus. The metal latch can move up and down, but that's ok.
Step 5: Purchase a paint-can opener:
http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/525566/2/istockphoto_525566_opener_for_paint_can.jpg
Step 6: Re-attach door.
Step 7: You can use the paint-can opener to the right of the latch to lever-open and lever close the latch in order to open and close the door.

Cheap, easy. Not pretty at all. Definitely something your friends would make fun of you for doing, but it saves you $1,000 of a new machine, in this economy.
