Our whirlpool duet dryer...

Our whirlpool duet dryer door won't stay closed during drying cycle.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Approx 7 years old. Model is wed9200sq0

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes and no...

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It looks like the door is not aligned correctly, the gap at the top is larger than the gap at the bottom. I tried adjusting the hinge but to no avail.
