It sounds like the steam created is causing too much pressure and the door keeps popping open which breaks the door switch and the unit stops running. You'll want to make sure that the trim around the outer frame of the tub isn't pushing against the back of the door when you close it. Other than that, call warranty out to take a look because you could have a bad or weak door latch that needs to be replaced or slightly bent hinges.
