My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
Releasing the door latch is different on various washing machine models. If this answer does not help, send me the model number.
1.) Unplug your machine.
2.) This is a two person job. You are going to tilt the washing machine up 45 degrees on the handle side. Do not lay the unit on its side, you may damage some of the internal components. There will be some water still in the washing machine, between a quart and a gallon.
3.) Reach up from the bottom to the back of the door handle. You may have a rectangular plastic box with a cross bar in the middle to pull down on or another mechanical mechanism you can move.
Once again I do not have your model number.
