Hi, my name is***** sounds like you either have a bad door lock or a bad striker piece on the chassis. If the door is banging hard against the striker when you try to close the door your problem will be with the lock. Sometimes the lock gets rotated into the closed position and you can repair the problem by rotating it into the open position with a screwdriver while pulling on the door handle. If you can send me a short video of the problem I can tell you what is going on.
