    Washer would power on but not start. Ran self clean and was able to do one load, second load stoped mid cycle and now door is locked. Have let sit over night not plugged in and still wont open. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You may have a faulty door latch switch assembly, or faulty control board.

    Does the tub still have water in it? If not, then reset the washer by pressing the ON/OFF or START/PAUSE button. Then wait for two minutes, and see if the door unlocks.

    Check the main control board to see if you notice any burnt spots on it, if so that's the part you will need.

    Here's the service manual for your model: Page 12 shows you how to access the main control board(PCB).
