Hi, may have a problem either with the rubber door seal, or more likely, with the latch. When I close the door, it latches shut, but not fully so that I can hear the water loudly. When I lean a bit on the door, it closes more and becomes silent. As soon as I release the pressure, it opens a bit and is loud again. It has been going through its cycle normally like this for a couple of weeks, , but now releasing the pressure on the door stops the cycle.

Thanks, David.
