The hinge on the washer door binds upon opening and closing. It's getting to where you cannot open and close the door without flexing the metal beneith the mounting screws securing the hinge to the front panel. Is this a typical problem? Does this hinge require lubrication? Have they upgraded the new hinges to resolve this problem? Please let me know the best solution.

Thank You,

SoCalDad

Front panel can become "sprung" if somebody were to lean/fall on door etc, replacement hinge pretty much looks the same as original as pictured here (link has video):  http://www.repaircli...ber=WFW9400SW04
