Usually this is caused by the door being bent, the hinges being bent, or a worn out door strike/catch not holding the door tightly closed. Lol, got kids?? Mommy's little helpers love to lean on the doors(the ones that open/close vertically). Also, slamming the dryer door can break the little plastic arm attached to the door switch--I see MANY switches with the arms broken in-half or the strikes/catches damaged from slamming. Usually a relatively simple repair to replace the strike/catch.
shut off the breaker- pull the female receptacle clasp out of the front with flat screwdriver and needle nose and squeeze the back of it gently with pliers, replace, if its busted and you get mad, you can buy a standard padlock and latch and install that, that helps in other ways as well, careful to steer clear and watch the inner wall for wires and clearances if your going to retrofit that.
