Most likely your seal on the door is worn out or dried out and has shrunken enough to make the whistling noise. Have you tried to isolate the whistling to a particular section of the door? If you can find out where it is coming from the best solution is to replace the seal. Second way would be to use foam backed tape. However, this is just a temporary fix. Good luck1

Using a leaf blower and an observer inside you can pin point the problem area

Had the same issue here, weather stripping across the top and down the left side about 18in cured it.
