Modern rubber seals don't particularly like petroleum products such as WD40 or Vaseline as it can cause them to degrade. I suggest both the seal and door contact area be thoroughly cleaned with a hot soapy water thoroughly dried and then treated with a spray on silicon. You could also try a dusting of talcum powder after cleaning
