It is probably either the post that engages the switch is broken or out of alignment or the switch is knocked out of whack or is broken. Check it by inserting a small flathead in the slot and push in while the unit is on spin cycle (unless you want a mess to clean up) and see if it works then.

Whirlpool-made Front Loading such as the Kenmore Elite washing machines use a door lock and switch assembly having a tab that can be pulled manually for emergency opening of the door. This tab can be accessed with the removal of the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the washer and drain the water from the tub before accessing it. The link below contains the detailed instructions on manual unlocking of the door.
