We could give you better help if you supply a model number!!!!!!

Look on top, hinges should have a plastic cover over each one.

Use a putty knife or screw driver and gently pry the covers off, then you will be able to access the hinge screws which have probably loosened over the years.

On the door that looks like it is not straight -- leaning the most, loosen the 2 or 3 screws and adjust the door so as the gap in center is same all the way down and retighten.

This should take care of the problem.

OR maybe you have bad door gaskets causing door not to shut properly.

Also sometimes the doors can get tweeked or twisted.  If this is the case you can gently but firmly try to twist the door back to its orginal position.
