Door open, Interlock, wiring or main PCB most likley going to be faulty door interlock.
Turn the power off, unplug the machine and take the top off your machine and on the front right of the machine there is a plastic case with lots of wires.
Put the wires out one block at a time, keep putting them in and out, this will help the connection to seat.
Try the machine again and the problem should be solved.
If not you may need a new board.
