Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you're sure the door is shut and it is stateing that the door is open, you need to order and replace the door latch assembly because it's just not reading the door correctly. The part is normally about $75-80. You can try to unplug the unit for 60 seconds to reset the electronics, but that normally doesn't work.
