Bespoke Washer SmartThings Auto Door Lock

Bespoke 7.6 cu. ft. Ultra Capacity Electric Dryer with AI Optimal Dry and Super Speed Dry in Silver Steel model DVE53BB8900T / DVE53BB8900TA3

When I turn the washer on and I press and hold the Smart Control button, I see it on my SmartThings app on the phone indicating it is under control. Why is the door automatically locked? Is there any way I can leave it on Smart Control so I can turn it on to whatever I want once it has been fully loaded? TIA
