Sometimes If you have a very large load with tennis shoes or heavy items it can push the door open if the unit is overloaded. There is also the strike to hold it in place once the door shuts. The metal strike also places tension on the catch assembly. The opening and closing of the dryer door can weaken or compromise the strike and catch over time, allowing the dryer door to pop open prematurely on its own while drying your clothes. If this continues to happen , I would start by replacing hold catch assembly. Here is the part number # DC97-17991A Assembly Holder Lever.
