Re: fit new door seal
For most front-loaders: Plug off the wall mains. Remove the plastic clamp holding the
seal to cabinet & peel off the cabinet. Push downwards on the seal
close to the tub & the seal will come off - it's just held by a
spring on the periphery.
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid.
Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the
slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot
on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the
spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of
the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of
hands.Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this
is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring. Test for leaks before
using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher. (There
is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)

Could be a weak door spring, or worn or cracked catch, meaning that it is not latching in properly, try activating the door lock with a screwdriver or similar if you can, if still no joy, then could be a board or cumminication prob between boards
please rate my solution.
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!
