the door can be manually unlocked by removing the bottom front panel, reach up and there is a pull tab on the lock mechanism. it is a crime that they do not post this online or in the manual, and let folks ruin their clothes.
power problem was a part called the "FILTER" it is where there power cord plugs into, something along the lines of part number 201. cost is $85 plus tax. service man has not seen one of these ever go before.

Check your 2 in 3 out water valve part# WH13X10029, this responsible for filling of water. By the way wash cycle will not run, until washer sense enough water.

In order for the pressure switch to work it has to get pressure.
The switch is located near the top of the right side panel and can be seen by removing the top cover. There is a small pressure hose that leads to the switch and should be checked for crackes or chafing. There are three round sponges on this hose to keep it from rubbing on the moving parts. I had to replace mine after just over a year so I used a heaver hose with the same inner diameter. I used a 3/16 fuel line from Princess Auto and two new 3/8 stainless hose clamps.

Front right would most likely be the discharge pump. Here's a diagram:
Sounds like you could have a pump problem or a loose hose. First, go ahead and clean the drain pump filter (as per instructions in the Use & Care Manual). Screw it back in tightly to see if that resolves the issue.
If not, check this posting for how to run a diagnostic test: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part
Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes. At the bottom of that posting is a link to the code definitions with problem resolutions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9556917-ge_model_wcvh6800j_error_code_04
If you don't get any error codes and all tests run correctly, open the front access panel and see if you can figure out where the leak is originating from (To remove the panel: undo three screws and lift from the bottom). Please post back once you either have codes or have located the leak source...then we can troubleshoot more.
