Frigidaire washer door sagging so strike and door lock not lining up correctly. After a period of time front load washer doors tend to start to drop below normal position. The glass in the front doors are very thick, heavy and only supported by plastic inner frame. This combined with continued opening and closing will over time make your front load door start to sage. Fortunately Frigidaire makes a door shim kit for this problem.
After you have ordered and received the shim kit part #137309800. Start with removing the three screws holding the door to the machine. Lay the door face down on a soft surface as to no scratch the front of the door and glass. Remove the screws securing the outer frame and with a very small flat screw driver shim it between the inner and outer panels. Make sure to note the position of the frame and glass. Next remove the inner plastic frame, you should have access to the hinge at this point. Install the shim kit according to the instructions that come with the kit. Reinstall the hinge, inner frame and screws. Install the door back onto the washer, your door strike and lock should line up in the correct position at this time.
The hot water goes into the machine at a slower rate than the cold water does. Open the hot spigot (water valve) behind the washing machine all the way open, then open the cold spigot just enough to get the desired 'warm' temperature of the water going into the machine while the machine is filling. You may have to shut the door to allow water to flow. Remember that it takes a minute or so for hot water to reach the machine from hot water tank.
Sometimes, it is hard to close door after fitting a new seal.
Make sure you have got it fitted correctly round the flange on the front of the cabinet, and that the retaining clamp is securely fastened.
Try smearing the door glass with washing up liquid, this can help to close the door more easily

One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is
If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.
Sounds like a faulty door interlock (quite a common problem)
UNPLUG POWER first, remove lid, remove screws holding door lock in place and lift lock assembly up, replace door lock, ensuring cables are replaced in the correct order. Refit and test.
