You should be able to access the door lock from the bottom panel. Unplug the machine and open bottom panel reach up on the side of the lock. It should have a tab or pull hanging down that takes a little pull to unlock it. Do that and see if it'll unlock. If not you might just have to buy a new door latch/lock.

My washer wont lock and now it does not spin why


The door has to lock as a safety to allow the machine to run. There is a switch on most locks to tell the machine to power the motor.
I would guess the lock solenoid has failed, or something has happened to the latch for the door.

Probably door-lock is broken or motherboard crash.
If it not signalize that door are closed propertly it want start taking water to wash.
It's overflow prevention.

See user manual -> possible problems or call local serviser.

My GE Washer Door Won't Lock


Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.
