Are you sure it's aluminum and not galvanized steel? Either way you'll need to remove all the old paint if it's peeling/flaking. Try a pressure washer, but make sure you relocate anything near the door that could be damaged from whatever water gets through the seams/joints. Prime with a good quality metal primer before painting. If the door is galvanized vice aluminum, ensure the primer is specifically for galvanized metal.

Yes, the trick is the correct primer. It is not cheap. The chemistry is a de-oxidizer, which when applied to aluminum or galvanized, will allow a good quality metal paint to adhere to it.
