Whirlpool fridge door "drops" into place when opening.
Perhaps the door alignment needs adjusting. Two black rubber washers on the door's bottom [where you can adjust door height] is shaped with a high and low point. Seems like the two high points are touching and when opening, the door drops into the low place. Is this something that can be fixed by adjusting the door's height?

the front feet under the door opening are adjustable screws. You may have to use a shifter to get them to move as they mat be rusted . adjust so the fridge slopes slightly to the rear. This keeps any moisture on the back wall to drain out the hole and the door will close if left open
Check that the door gasket is not perished or damaged causing the door not to close properly. Also check nothing is hitting or obstructing the door from pushing the door open switch closed. Some fridges have a lever or button sticking up out of the door which pushes the switch off. Check if you have one and see if its broken or missing the switch. Perhaps the door has dropped and not touching the switch? The moisture in the fridge indicates that air is getting into the compartment during cooling cycle. This is common if the door isn't closing properly or the gasket has failed.
Check the door is aligned properly and meets all the way round If not, grasp the door firmly at the top and push it closed while placing the head of a mallett or similar item between the bottom of the door and the body of the fridge. This will straighten the door and the seal will fit again
I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.
An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck
The description below is for a gap at the top of the door. Adjust the procedure for gap at bottom by "twisting" the door in the opposite direction.

Yes, only part that gets could is in the Freezer. If block by ice (usually) this will not allow the cold air to go into the ref., if so, defrost problem. Check amount of ice on coils in back of Freezer. Should only be a thin frosting.
We had the same problem when our was delivered last week. I spoke to Samsung customer services.
They said the roller in the middle of the front is not meant to be there permanently. It is just a transport roller and should be removed once your fridge freezer is in place.
To remove it:-
- unscrew the two white plastic feet at either side of the front until they touch the floor.
- then place a flat end screwdriver in the slots in the feet and continue to unscrew them. They will start to lift the front of the firdge -freezer up until the front roller no longer touches the floor.
-keep doing this (a little bit each side at a time so the fridge -freezer stays level) until the roller is about 15mm off the floor.
- then get a small flat spanner and remove the two small bolts on the metal plate that holds the roller to the bottom of the fridge-freezer.
Once these bolts are removed the roller and plate will drop to the floor and can be removed.
Then using the screwdriver, screw the feet back in until the point when the front of the fridge-freezer is level with the back.
The whole process shouldn't take you longer than 15 minutes.
I asked Samsung why this isn't included in their instruction manual and they couldn't give me an answer which I thought was poor.
I do wonder how many Samsung RSH1 fridge-freezers are out there with the front roller still attached!!!
If you are careful, open the door 90 degrees and place your leg against the bottom corner inside of the open door and your hand at the top corner, then GENTLY push inward. You should be able to feel and see the move or twist. Then close the door to test for proper sealing. Another way to adjust the door is to loosen the screws behind the door seal and twist,but this usually unnecessary if you do the leg trick properly.
