The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate. My machine does not work until you push hard against the closed door. What is the problem please?

Bosch she4am Unit starts briefly, then stops about a minute into the operation and lights the CLEAN led. I located the diagnostics code paper, ran the test a few times, and come up with the same code...the CLEAN led lit indicates a door switch problem. I removed the door switch, it's a magnetic hall effect transistor..seems to work but not sure it's showing proper voltages. It reads 8vdc or so across the switch with door open, and about 11.7vdc with door closed. Seems too narrow a range to me
