Some GE front load washers go directly into a pump out mode after any power failure (or if plug is pulled). This is to keep it from possibly over filling during a cycle restart.

SOURCE: making humming noise power not on door locked

turn off the unit.use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose this will remove all the water then you can turn it back on and should be able to open the door to get your clothes out.
after all thatis done you need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing blocking the pump.other likely problems are the door lock mechanism is bad or the main control board

Water not draining even after reset attempts

Did you check the most obvious item - the motor and belt that spin the drum and powers the pump assembly

My Maytag Epic Z washer stop in mid cycle then locked the door, we unlock the door via holding the cycle signal button down for 3 seconds, now we can open the door, close it, power up, start a cycle, but...

The low humming sound is from the pump. Remove the 3 screws on the bottom panel and remove it to check the pump filter. Here is a video for the "Duet Sport" washer. This washer is about the same. This video will show you the process and in this video the problem was similar to yours.

When washer starts it usually makes a clicking noise know it is humming and nothing happens the door is locked and wont open

your main belt is broken or loose i would suspect the latter,the reason the door will not open is the machine has started a wash cycle and because the belt is not able to finish the cycle the door wont open so the progam is not finished,switch the machine of at the mains and the door will open after 10 mins.But the problem remains the belt.please rate this answer thanks.adrian,,,,,,,,,

Washer door will not open. Power button will not

Hi,

You can manually unlock the door on this washer. First you should unplug the washer from the wall outlet and then remove the lower access panel. With the lower access panel removed, and the washer unplugged, reach up to the door lock and feel for a round release ring and pull it down. The door should unlock now.

Thank you !!

Humming and not filling?

had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck
