Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer
You might have to wait longer for the machine to cool before the door can open. Remove the washer from the wall wait for like 30mins, and try again. By then, the door should open with easy.
Also, note that; many front loading machines have to be fully off, as in, the dial is on off and pulled out (or pushed in) whichever is the direction for "off." Otherwise there is a secondary latch on the door that stays shut to prevent accidentally opening it during a wash cycle.
If turning it off does and waiting for a while does solve the problem, remove the lower front panel use torx 15....reach up to the lock and pull down on a ring that comes down below the lock Assembly and the door should open. The problem however can be either the Lock assy easy and cheap to replace or the computer easy to replace but expensive.
