Front loading wash machine

I have a Kenmore front loading wash machine, model 417.44142400. It is making a loud buzzing sound when I pull the start knob to begin the wash cycle. The water fills, but the door can be pulled open easily, rather than being locked as it should. Any suggestions?

    I've already had it fixed, but you were correct. Thanks for your input.
