Look this is a long shot, but i once repaired a frontloader for a customer who was having this problem.the door lock light was showing up but it was actually the motor brushes in the motor,they where worn out & because they wern't making electrical contact the door lock light was staying on,this is stupid but the doorlock ran through the same circuit as the motor.so as a result the machine had no choice but to put up the door unlocked light.the door light must go out when the interlock closes that circuit but the motor was in that same circuit & when the motor open circuited due to the brushes the door light recognised this as an open circuit & lit up.it took me a while to work it out.Perhaps this is the same in your machine.I hope this helps you,ide be interested to know.

Door interlock flashing


Same issue with loose solder joint on the relays inside CCU (computer control unit)
the same bad CCU is used by several manufactures.
you have to open the CCU and re-solder the the relays to the board. they have microcracks around the legs.
you will get the door lock issue randomly.
to prove the issue open the top access panel .and pull up on the center black plastic connector and the issue will go away.

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.
Good luck.

it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.
