Kenmore Washer HE3T Model 110 Will Not Power Up. Door Stays Locked.

I have disconnected the Washer And left unplugged for 5 minutes. I have plugged the unit back in and waited for 5 minutes before pressing the power button. All that happens is it chimnes (beeps). The door on the unit is locked and will not open. How can I reset the Control Board to unlock the door and power the unit up?

First, let me express my appreciation for you Safety First answer. Please keep up this great practice. I am following el;ectrical safety by de-energizing the unit and verifying with a Multi-Meter. The sequence you have provided in the troubleshooting is spot on. Thanks. If it is a short in the harness, I can detect using a Mult-Meter. For the Motor Control Board, are there any common issues that can be corrected or is it in the board itself? Low Quality Components like this may experience dendritic growth or tinning failures. Please let me know your thoughts.
