Stuck door

Hello guys, I am new to this forum, I own a 2009 G8 base. This evening I washed my car, got the doors open, couldn’t get the passenger door closed, I accidentally pushed the latch down and closed the door, now it won’t pen from the inside or outside. I can get the lock/unlock button to flip but door is stuck closed. Please help. Thanks in advanced. Brian

If the latch was closed prior to closing the door you may have damaged something or cable may have popped out inside the door. When you pull on the inside or outside handles do you feel any resistance?
