For safety reasons manufacturers started to put switches on washer lids so machines would not run with lid open. Your problem is with your switch. It may have wore out, or through use broken a small piece off it's end, not allowing the switch to fully engage. When you lean on the door, you are helping the switch fully engage. Look around the perimeter of your lid and you will find the switch. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Tecnik Washing Machine 9290 Red light not gone out so not able to open door. I switched it off by mistake but put it on and did the whole cycle again but still on and unable to open door . Please help

from the manual always WAIT.
Use the handle to open the door.
During the wash and dry cycle, a special safety device keeps the door locked.
To open the door, turn off the machine using the ON-OFF push-button and wait about 30 seconds after the switching off the warning light before turning the handle to open the door.
WARNING: Set the cycle only when the machine is off. - Always turn the control dial clockwise. If you pass the desired position, make a complete turn and reset the dial to the
exact position.

I set the dishwasher Siemens SL84A to regular wash cycle . I hear it click like its going to start, warm water fills the bottom up the tub but it never kicks into the wash cycle. Hit the cancel cycle and...

Most likely issue here is that the door is not sealing properly or the sensor on the door is not working, so it can fill up much as your washing machine does but just as the washer won't spin without the door closed neither will the dish washer. An easy way to check this is to let it fill and then lean or push against the door some and see if it starts, if so then the issue is the isn't sealing properly.

Does the washer go throught he whole cycle and just not spin? Or does it just shut down? If it goes the the whole cycle, You either have a bad door switch or a bad control board. Replace the door switch first. Then the control board 2nd. Door switch is a very common problem with these washer.

Hi - it sounds to me like the door latch needs adjusting or tightening up. It's probably something really simple like a loose screw. I must have plenty of those to be spending my time here :-)

If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
