I have a Kenmore 3.5 super capacity front loading washing machine. It won't start.

I have a Kenmore 3.5 super capacity front loading washing machine. Model 417 44052401 Serial # XC602617071. It won't start. I close the door and push start, and all the lights light up, even the door locked light, and I can hear the door lock locking, so I know it's not that. Everything stays lit up for a few seconds, then all the lights start flashing and beeping. It never starts, and it won't stop flashing and beeping until I push cancel. Now my dispenser drawer has been broken for some time. The handle comes off, but the machine still has always worked. Today, I dropped the handle to the dispenser door, and I noticed a small magnet on the floor. Could this magnet be from the drawer like some kind of sensor that the drawer is not closed? Idk if the magnet even came from the drawer, its just a guess. I can't figure out what else it could be.

I have the same issue, could you please repost the picture showing where the magnet needs to clip to the dispenser door?
