Hope you are doing well. If I am not mistaken smegs are all fairly the same.

Disconnect from the power.
Remove the lid, normally held at the rear with screws.
On the front of the machine you should see the fixing for the "tongue" that locks into the lock mechanism. Undo this and the door should release. You can then see which part has actually failed, causing this problem
