When replacing door hinges, you may see spacers being used to help for a good fit. These spacers are important and should not be discarded unless unusable.  I’ve seen a number of them being used while doing renovation work on my rental home.  Some were old and fell apart when I removed the old hinges.  At first I thought it was a waste of time to keep or replace them.  Then I learned why it was used.  Without the spacers the door hinge sat too deep (door, door frame or both) in the cutout and therefore would cause some binding when closing the door.  If you hinged up a door and its binding look for hinges that are set in too deeply.  Back off the screws to have some space and slide in thin plastic or wood shims to bring it up flush.  Retighten the screws and see if that works.  Hope this helps.
