Sounds like the door latch assembly has worn out, you could try some WD 40 and really soak it good and see if that works but I think your going to have to replace the unit.

Even though the latch is probably worn, it may be adjustable yet. Try to loosen the screws holding the latch to the door frame and gently tap it in. Close the door and try again. You may have to repeat this several times to get perfect but it should do the trick. PS: lube both doors
