SOURCE: error message e4 54040990
It may mean that the disk is no longer usable due to scratches or other over-use reasons. If a new disk, it may mean you're using the wrong brand. This machine works on recommended brands, and the brand of DVD+RW that has proven to be workable on this device, and that I use with no problems, is VERBATIM. Hope this helps you solve what's wrong.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck. The E4 error indicates a door kock error, however the door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, so....
1. **Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**
2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)try a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).
4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with the aid of pliers.
**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present is usually a good plan
Once the door is open, unplug the washer for 20minutes or so and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets". Good luck !
Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly. (Sorry about the post, I'm still adapting to this "htc" windows 7 phone after having an iphone for 2years...very tricky lol )
Thank you for choosing to "FixYa".
