I really loved your camera type though it was 35 years ago I had one. I envy you.
Not sure why you should be having trouble unless you have a bad film. Have you tried more than one film?
If the film cassette has dropped in properly and is laying flat, the film rewind has to be raised, I think, to allow that and the sprocket holes in the film are properly engaged with the sprockets and the free end of the film engaged onto the film wind-on reel then everything should be well below the door aperture.
I would wind on maybe a frame and fire the shutter prior to closing the film door just to observe everything moving as it should and then close the door.
The last quarter inch the door must be closed against the pressure of a spring but if the little spring-loaded device behind the door which is intended to keep the film perfectly flat against the camera body is working correctly only a light pressure will be needed to compress those springs and close the door.
Perhaps something is wrong there?
I don't remember any problems closing the film door.
I hope this helps but if it doesn't please come back again and describe your actions and the feel of the door more fully.
I am guessing that you just do not have enough lead in the sprocket to catch the film. Try reeling out a half in more film and reloading. If that does not fit the excess film just trim it a bit and try over.
Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.

bottom of camera open battery cover with a pen point, insert one AA battery close cover.
film door is opened with pen point left side of film door. load film & bring film leader to take up spool, close film door. rotate advance to # 1 counter on bottom.
turn camera on with sliding switch on front of camera, this opens lens cover and turns on flash .( if wanted ) second click.
at end of film roll pull rewind lever up and rotate clock-wise to rewind film.
open film door and remove film.
remember to turn camera off when not using.
remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.
No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
First check the batteries. Are they fully charged? If you still have the same problem, try this:
Is the film (that which did not rewind fully) still in the camera? If so, open the film chamber door once in a dark room and close it again. Try to rewind the film again. This could possibly be the result of the film getting stuck somewhere, preventing the camera from rewinding it.
