Repairing a Loose Microwave Door that Won't Open?

I have a Whirlpool microwave oven, model WMC50522AS1. The door will not open when I pushed the button, I have to manually lift the door up a little bit and then the door will pop open. When the door is open, I hold the door and I can feel that the door is loose. Do we have a way to tight it up?

This can be a hinge problem with the door. The hinge can be broken or missing some screws. If you can remove the hinges from the door you can check to see if they are bent, rusted, or damaged. I am not sure if they happen to sell replacement parts for these microwaves because now everything like this is considered disposable and it normally costs more to repair one than buy a new one.
