Is it one you were sent as a proper replacement? If it's a different size it may just not be being operated by the door catch.

If you wire it up wrong it can blow the main PCB, you might have been luck that the combination you connected up was just the one where it doesn't work as opposed to the one which connects a live and neutral together - BANG :)

If it wasn't meant for this machine it's not a good idea to fit it but my article here describes how they work which may help you find the right combination of wires - how does a washing machine door interlock work?

If you can't determine which connection is which try and get the right door interlock 4washerhelp spare parts
