Front loading washer door won't open.

My kenmore front load duet washer door will not open. I've tried the troubleshooting in the manual and nothing worked. I've tried unplugging and starting the cycle over. I have clothes in the washer and I believe their is water that hasn't drained. When I push the start button, the door makes the clicking sound that indicates the door is locking. It doesn't sound like the normal "click" when my washer was working properly. Any suggestions on how to get the door open so I can get my clothes out?

The first answer you were referred to may help you open the door manually for most Kenmore front load washers.

Remember to unplug the washer first.
