not if left half open.but will self close from ca 1/4 open
Appliance Technician: John, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
Raise the legs at the front till it does close by itself this will make the door heavier and wont be left open by accident.also clean the gasket with hot water and vinegar this will help with that problem.
