I've seen this once before on an LG frontloader with the same doorswitch. I determined that the door was not aligned properly because it would not shut all the way if you just let it go. It would stop about 2 inches away from closing, then you would have to push it closed. I had to make an adjustment to the door latch because my client didn't want to buy the whole the door. I'll tell you what I did. So, on the door itself, you see the door hook. It is springloaded. When you close the door, that hook pushes against a slider/actuator on the door latch which tells the control board the door is locked. Over time the door alignment loses integrity. It may catch onto the latch just fine and appear to be closed and ready to wash, but the actuator never slides over all the way. The actuator has a tab that is pushed against when the door closes and the doorhook springs forward to slide it all the way over. I just bent that tab out so that the springloaded doorhook can push against it and slide it all the way over.
