Good evening,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

Please turn it off and wait for few minutes, you should be able to open the door.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 10 days ago.

That should open the door however, if the issue is still there then please try this:

Please unplug the appliance and remove the bottom front flap.

Keep some beach towels and shallow container under the filter.

Then rotate the drain pump filter anti clockwise to open, clean it completely and make sure it is not clogged.

Now, with your fingers check if impellor rotates.

Then you will see a pull tab next to the filter, pull it to open the door.

Please let me know how it goes.

Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.

Have a wonderful evening.

Thank you.
