Need more info, wood, fiberglass, etc??? Is this something recent?? It sounds like the door has warped and there is not much that can be done to correct that. Resetting weatherstripping may be a stop gap, but it likely needs a new door slab. Stanley has been bought out by Masonite, but there may still be a warranty on the door(usually 10 yrs).

In addition to the questions Bill asked can you tell us if there is any play in the door? By that I mean can you take the door and shake it or is it firmly attached to the wall? Are the hinges loose? Does the door jamb itself move when you open and close the doors, or even if you push on the jamb itself?
