Bosch Clothes Dryer Door Adjustment

Our Bosch Nexxt 500 clothes dryer door seems to have sagged and is scraping the plastic trim piece on the top front of the dryer. I've removed the door but don't see any way to adjust the door alignment. The door hinge bracket has two guide pins that lock the hinge in one fixed position. The recesses on the door that accommodate the hinge pins also don't seem to allow any adjustment. How do I adjust the alignment of the front door? Or could the plastic trim piece have shifted and is causing the problem?

Nexxt 500 is a group..... not a model number.

I used this as a model.... sears parts direct/wtmc5330us06/1794/0151200.html

I'm not familiar with that dryer. The hinge doesn't look adjustable.
I'm guessing it's sprung. The part number should be 00491647.

Checked to see if the whole dryer is level?
Never seen a door adjustment, but if the dryers not level the frame will be out of wack.

Door has no adjustment. Sometimes on that type of dryer if you lift on door when it is mostly closed if will bend it back in to shape. Don't lean on door when open This is what bends hinge or door frame.
