Something must be holding in the switch where the door latch normally locks in. Or the little latch might be broken inside and keeps sending the signal that the door is shut. Check inside and see if anything is blocked in.

Door will not stay shut


There has to be some sort of spring on the door latch assembly that keeps the door closed. If broken or no tension the door will not latch and spring open. And when the door springs open, a safety switch shuts the machine off.
