Try adjusting it "in" a little at the latch side. That helped mine .

A couple of turns of electrical tape around the keeper is a old fix If it starts to rattle again just replace the tape. Also a teflon coated keeper is available and this too helps. Good luck

Teflon coated keeper is waste of money, IMO...I tried that. The electrical tape works fine. Just need to replace it occasionally.

The short rod that sticks out from the door jam is what he's referring to as the keeper. A couple of wraps of electrical tape works just fine.

Door rattles

I got a piece of bearing grade plastic and cut it down to fit under the bottom corner of door (lock side) just thick enough to stop door from moving up and down. I taped two screws in bottom of the door and counter sink the screws in the plastic so they do not rub door sil.No more door movement

It was the "keeper" that did it on ours. I placed a small piece of velcro on the door and wrapped a turn around the keeper. It's been on their for a year and a half.

You could have DW (or DH - depending) run alongside and hold the keeper up.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
