Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Was leaning on the door to replace a bulb at the back of the dryer. Door would not shut tightly. I pushed it closed, then it pops open.
It appears the your door is not aligned like is supposed to due to the weight you put on when leaned on. You now need to do some twisting and turning to bring the door alignment back to normal . When you do this process don't over do it or it may break. If is not possible you may need to replace the complete door or just the door hinge. Good luck

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.Check online for the part repairclinic.com has it for $14.00 not bad

This was a concern on some whirlpool and kenmore dryers. The fix was to replace both of the catches (the part on the dryer front panel ) and the latches (the part on the door) as well as a redesigned door gasket. Im sure if you contact Whirlpool customer assistance they would be able to supply you with a part number for the repair kit....
