Re: fx1365 door will not lock followed by four bleeps
From what you say,I would be looking for a fault on the programmer, sounds like you are not getting a neutral feed.
By shorting out the lock you have created a circuit through live and common, causing the m/c to operate.
Check carbons in motor.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Possible your door has not been shut properly. Open the door and shut again. Or try some WD40 spray on the door of the machine, not on the body, or it could short circuit something. If all this does not work just change the lock mechanism, quoting your model and brand; you could find spares on the net.
The door is not locked properly or the door lock switch is not functioning. In the second case the door lock functioning can be checked by bypassing the door switch (for testing only). After bypassing the switch the program can start. If it succeeds replace the door lock switch.
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest, sorry ;-0(
he code "dr" means the control doesn't see the door switch being closed.This can mean the door catch is broken or the door is bent and not shutting all the way or clothes are preventing the door from shutting all the way but most likely it means the door lock assembly needs to be replaced. Check the door strike is not broken and make sure the door is shutting evenly. If the door is shut fully and the "dr" error keeps occurring then replacing the lock assembly 131763245 will most likely fix this problem. The switch can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . Remember to unplug the washer first before attempting to change the switch. The image below contains the instructions to access and change the latch. Changing the latch is easy the tough part is putting the spring back on. Sometimes it helps to have two extra hands when trying to reinstall the wire/spring. I hope this information helps you resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Please see the following Whirlpool / Maytag service manual for Neptune washers. https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/dc59d905140253e18525729c005765f4/$FILE/Maytag_Neptune_Washer.pdf
On page 3-1 the manual explains that if the washer shuts off during the spin cycle, the problem points to a weak spring in the door lock mechanism.
"Shuts OFF In The Middle Of The Spin Cycle: During the spin cycle, the machine control monitors the door lock mechanism to ensure the door is locked. This is done through the door lock enable switch. During "lock mode," the shaft of the door lock mechanism is pressed forward by the door lock wax motor, and the shaft presses in the button of the door lock enable switch. If the machine control board sees the switch OPEN during the spin cycle, the machine control board will automatically shut the washer OFF. This is caused by a weak spring in the door lock wax motor. Replace the complete door lock mechanism.
this sounds like a door lock issue if the machine does not detect the door has closed properly you will get the same symptoms, try slamming the door shut (not too hard) if machine starts but then does the same thing next time you use it will need new lock it will have gone out of calibration.
This depends on how old your machine is mine is now 7 years old so I do not want to invest in long term soltions. So I repaired my own, I bought a new interlock and replaced the old one that did not work. So I shorted out the three links that go to the interlock, the machine now shows the lock is always on and you can open the door during the wash cycle so BEWARE. Also if you have never wired a plug or fixed basic electrics DO NOT DO THIS.
1. Turn off power and unplug. (Very Important)
2. Remove lid you will need torx drivers.
3. Unscrew door interlock from the front of the machine.
4. Lift out interlock. Try replacing the interlock with spare first (about £15).
5. If new interlock does not work do the following.
6. Put Interlock back on without wires attched to it.
7. From car spares shop buy spade conectors and create a three way shorting link (insulate well).
8. Put shorting link into each of the wires that go to interlock.
Safely tie up wire to a loom (do not let dangle)
9. Shut the door remove hands and try starting the machine.
10. If that works put the machine back together. And warn people that the DOOR CAN BE OPENED DURING WASH CYCLE and STARTED WITH DOOR OPEN. So check when the machine has stopped properly.
