Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
Try this remedy.
When we have an error code this is the remedy.
This can reset the system.
First turn it off.
Cut power to the washer at the breaker and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Write back right away and let me know that it worked and solved the problem .

How old is the appliance?
Here is an interesting report I just read.
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

SOURCE: Door spring does not work.
I do not have a place to order parts for a Neff dishwasher, but I know these dishwashers have springs in each hinge that will wear out/break over the years.
Replacing those springs will stop the door from drooping open.

If the door switchmechanism is still in place inside the door, you should be able to see it when you open the door ,it is visible on the inside if the door top centre if it is intact then it could be that the actuator bracket has moved, this is located under the top panel front centre and is held in position by an hexagonal nut. the top is secured at the back of the machine by 2 screws one on the left and one on the right remove the two screws slide the top to the rear approx 1/2 inch lift off the top you can now access the door catch bracket, close the door and adjust the bracket forward so that it latches securely but don't position it to far forward or it could bottom on the back of the door mechanism, if everthing is in place unit should be fixed, reposition top onto the two front lugs and slide top gently forward replace the two screwws at the back and you should be in business
