Try checking the hindges and slider on the door they could be worn out. I was a mechanic for 15 years and don't remember every model but there might be a bearing of sorts that moves in the slider, check this or what ever moves inside the slider. Also take a look at the pin that the door latches on (including the latch in the door),the pin is located on the door jam. Sometimes you can get some adjustment out of them. This is old school but if you do tap that pin or anything else with a hammer be very careful. Last check for cracks in any of the metal. This is the first time I have responded to a forum like this.
