I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Door lock flashes doesnt work or start up


The flashing door lock light is indicating that the door is not closed proerly.
This can be caused by a weak or broken spring in the door handle.
Another reason for this to happen, is a faulty control board at the top of the washer, a blown track will cause this.
This in turn, is usally caused by a fault on the motor.
Hope this helps.

Bashing doorknobs


you can go to any home center of hardware store to get a automtic door closer. (spring loaded hinge). that will altumatically close the door, that will prevent the door stay open and bash into each other.
there is no door stopper is big or long enough to do the trick.

The door switch may be faulty, as a safeguard the machine will not start if the door is not closed properly or this part is faulty. You can check this by pushing the door firmly in or (unplug the machine first) removing the front of the door seal and putting your hand around the corner where the door latch goes into.
The door switch only uses a live and neutral so you can bypass it by taping the two wires together, make sure they don't touch the cabinet, replug the machine then put it on a spin to test. This is a cheap repair, just don't use the machine with the door switch bypassed like that, you could have a flood!

I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!
