I have a frigidairewith the freezer located at the top. My refrigerator door is sagging. So the seal is not sealing. It is only sagging on the left side (the opening side). The right side, or the hinge side is fine. So when you look at the frig, the door sags downward towards the left. The bottom hinge washers look fine. Is it possible that the bottom hinge (L-bracket) is slightly bent?

Check the freezer door gasket! Frost build up along the front edge of the freezer indicates a poor or broken seal. It could also be packaging or plastic bags on top of the freezer getting into the door opening and allowing moist room air into the freezer--make sure nothing on top of the refrigerator is getting into the door or jamming it open.
The fridge and freezer share their airspace, so when you close one there is a slight increase in pressure in the other unit. (Much like opening a window can cause a door open/close in your house due to pressure change/air movement) The magnet in your seal of the door is weak and unable to resist the pressure change. The seal should be changed.
Could also be that the door is not shutting properly in the first place due to sagging or skewed hinges that need adjustment/replacement and while shutting just may not be getting a complete seal that it should be.
Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
OPEN THE DOOR WIDE . YOU SHOULD SEE THE HINGES THAT SUPPORT THE DOOR. LOOSEN THE SCREWS THAT SUPPORT THE DOOR----JUST LOOSEN , THEN LIFT UP ON THE DOOR AND TIGHTEN THE SCREWS. NOW YOU CAN LET GO OF THE DOOR. I HOPE THAT WORKS FOR YOU . GOOD LUCK.
