Has the machine stopped full or empty of water?

Can you post the model number of the machine?

OK, thanks for that.

I'd suggest we first start by making sure the machine is empty.

Put a dish in front of the filter and slacken it a little to drain the water (if you have a draining tube by the filter try that instead)
Tighten the filter when you need to empty the dish.

Once it's empty, try opening the door.
If the handle isn't broken it should open.

Let me know what happens.
