Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

A model number would help us help you pretty specifically, but without it,
here's a generic answer.
The service manual would help you get the part numbers and help with disassembly, but without the model number, I cannot give you a link to the manual.
The problem is that your door latch spring has come loose, either from the inner door panel or the latch assembly.
