Question about Washing Machines
Sounds like a draining problem - Check the drain filter isnt blocked, if fitted before doing anything else - remove the filter and clean it. Then, can you hear the drain pump running on the drain cycle (drum not moving but pump should be) - a chug chug chug noise and water should be flowing down the waste pipe. Door WILL lock if the machine is full of water or is slow to drain - to prevent floods. Do NOT force the door open without draining - you will only break the door handle.
If water not flowing on drain - and filter clear - may be blocked pipe, sock stuck in sump hose - coin or counter flipped on edge in a pipe and blocking it - something like any of the above. Clothes too wet to dry is classic partially blocked drain pipe symptom - or spin aborted as drum out of balance.

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.
