Jason, that's what I'm thinking. That the washer and dryer are shifting and pushing the doors open.

I checked the washer and dryer and they are locked down tight. My latches are really weak and it makes it easy for the doors to come open. They replaced them and now its better, but they still occasionally pop open.

To us it's not a big deal. Just one of the things we always check before running the wardrobe slide. Ours will occasionally be opened. Not sure why.

Have never had any issues with the doors mentioned however I did blow apart on of the closet door when it opened up suddenly and slammed into the handle on other closet door.

After gluing the door back together I cut two pieces of dowel with handles that I now place in the track.

I've never had a problem with them opening while traveling. I don't have the washer dryer. But a good way to check if that is the problem is to check the back side of the door for scratches or dings.

Mine have opened and the problem with that is if you aren't aware of it, you can cream the door with the wardrobe slide... Ask me how I know that.... I now have learned to check the doors BEFORE opening the slide....

They will bust your slide as mine did my slide before they bust my door. Cost 500 to repair. Replace your latch or spread it out to hold it closed.

My doors opened and I paid for it. One knob was demolished. I bought a latch from Lowes for less than $2. I'll try to load a picture of it tomorrow.

So what is the theory behind what makes these doors come open?
