Is it a sliding door or on hinges?

If it's a sliding aluminium door, clean off all the wet stuff you applied and use powdered graphite. Ironmongers sell it for lubricating locks.

If its sliding you may need to adjust the nuts holding the door to the rolers  which lift /drop the door- also check for obstructions on the slides

Silicone spray, worked a treat on mine and on the curtain rail when I was having a problem getting the curtains to close or open.
