The most likely to be causing the issue you are having is a problem with the lower door hinge. That hinge supports the bulk of the door weight. Does it appear to be intact and not bent or "tweaked" at all? Can you post a picture of that area?

Sorry Kelly, my mistake, did not mean to deceive you, what i mean is that on the left door is a vertical bar that hinges in and out when you close or open the door. At the bottom of that bar there is a spring that i believe it is supposed to push that bar up.
If that spring is not strong enough???? to push that bar up when the door is closed that bar does not let the door close. That is the problem. Any suggestions??? Once again sorry Kelly and hope that you can help me with this annoying problem.
Many thanks in advance
best regards
