Putting this here hoping it may help someone not waste their money on a pump that won’t help.
 
All the people who are stating it’s the latch are correct, my whirlpool gold series washer started doing this and after pulling it apart I’ve come to the conclusion that what’s happening is the metal lock tab is wearing down the plastic latch in the door and it’s no longer able to depress the latch far enough down to reset the mechanism.
 
You can tell if this is the case on your by the ways it sounds when closing, mine started making a light thud noise, it is supposed to make a louder clack noise.
 
Two ways to solve this is to either buy the latch piece and install (easy peezy like half hour tops) or be cheap like me and get something small (I’m using a small star screwdriver, the kind of point used on eye glasses screw or slightly bigger) and push in lightly on the side of the latch and you should hear a click then close door and listen for the clack and start washing
