Hard to lock door

Lubricate latch and handle mechanisms first with penetrating oil until all works well, then re-lube with white lithium grease to prevent future failure. It may be necessary to remove inner door panel if you can't get to the sticking part.

My heater won't work on 5 anymore and sometimes the heater wont work at all but when i slam my door then it will kick on

You either have a bad blower motor or bad blower motor resistor. Odds are on motor since slamming door works lol

Not locking

I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click multiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure either that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cycle without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

Bosch WFK 2401 Need to slam door several times to lock door

Sounds like you need the electric "door interlock" replaced. It is a simple matter of seperating the front of the machine enough to unplug the interlock mechanism, remove the two screws holding the mechanism in place and remove it from the back, reverse the procedure to install the new "updated" replacement part (- Bosch #170935 btw. about $37.00 from Sears). - time: approx 1/2 hour if you aren't mechanically inclined.
