I looked at this washer and the cover around the lock was broken and the washer wouldn't lock. I figured it was a lock problem so I replaced the lock and the broken cover. I can get the washer to lock now if I press against the door when it's locking, but it won't lock if I just shut the door and hit start. The door was sagging a bit, presumably the reason the cover was broken, so I adjusted it up. It seems to close properly, just not quite enough. I'm hoping someone has a suggestion or there's a service bulletin I don't have access to. Fingers crossed. Thanks.
