Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
Usually, the door remains locked until the cycle is over. Now, it can be opened at any time and buzzes for the entire wash/rinse/spin cycle.
See above. The moving part of the solenoid latch may have stuck, that's where the buzzing comes from.
It will also buzz if it's blocked, by distortion of the plastic latch. On the door, observe that there are two plastic protrusions. The upper one is the 'soft latch' that keeps it closed when it's off. The lower one is the 'hard latch' that locks when it's running. Both the plastic protrusions are somewhat fragile and subject to breaking. They're also VERY easy to replace, just the two screws at the top and bottom.

Try some WD40 on the mechanism of the lock, not on door. And open & close a few times, while disconnected from the mains.

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!
