On ur model soap and softener can drip down on door hinge on inside of front panel of unit. It 'rusts' the hinge and causes it to be hard to pivot. That also puts extra pressure on the door lock mechanism and sometimes misaligns the closing. The hinge double pivots. Sometimes taking front off and lubricating the hinge will free it.
open the oven door all the way and look down at the hinges. there is a little locking clip that you swing into position that locks the hinge from closing. it might be stiff and need some cleaning depending on how old and dirty your oven is. Also you might have to push down on the oven door to make the hinge open fully to get the locking tabs into place. making shore that the locking clips stay in place and hold open the hinge as you lift the oven door slowly towards its closing position and you will see the whole hinge lift up from inside the oven cabinet and the door will just lift out. be careful not to catch your fingers. make sure the looking tabs stay in place during removal as the hinge is very hard to get back into this position again. re fitting is the reversal making sure that you have pushed the base of the door all the way back into the cabinet and push down on the as to open it to release the tabs.
i never worked on your brand but have installed hinges on other oven doors,install the hinges to the door,put the door back together,i have a piece of pipe that's hollow,have one person hold the door down while you use the pipe to position the hinge,just stick the arm of the hinge into the open middle of the pipe and you can easily move the hinge and set the lock on the hinge to the position you want it to be,maybe a car jack handle will work or a plumbing piece of pipe,doesn't have to be long like 2 ft. long this will give you the leverage to open it no problem,if you try to do it by hand use a towel or gloves so you don't tear up your hand.hope this helps it works for me.
I have a different model Whirlpool oven but if the door opens downwards then there are usually two smalll catches on top of the main hinges. Lift these up (they can be quite stiff) away from the oven, partially close the door and it should lift upwards to free the hinges.
Lubricate the hinge or the hinge will have to be replaced.. I recommend wd40 first, then a finger tip amount of grease on top of hinge pin. the oil from the grease will keep the hinge constantly lubricated. It's not too late.
I have the same problem with the side doors of my 04 express. I put penetrating oil on the hinge pin with a hypodermic needle (hard to find). It is important that the oil gets into the hinge. I bent one set of hinges and broke a hinge because I waited too long to oil the hinge. The door may not close correctly because the hinge may be slightly bent. Keep all other hinges well lubed especially during the winter months when the hinges can be exposed to road salt. Fixing a bent hinge is difficult at best.
It might be because when the door was completely removed ( which they do rather easily for repairs and moving) it wasn't put back properly.
I would suggest you remove the oven door and re install.
You do not remove any screws or anything like that to remove the oven doors.
When you have the oven door open squeeze each hinge and shift then both outwards it will release the door from the hinge, the hinge stays on but the door will slide off the hindge. Afterwards check the alignment and reinstall the oven door
