Has something come loose
Quite probably, or something has broken off. I have heard a rattle from a door and it turned out to be the trim on the outside of the door.

I think the interior door panel will need to come off to investigate by pulling and rocking the parts inside the door to find the bit that is loose. It will also be worth looking inside the bottom of the door, while the door panel is off, if there are any parts in there - an odd screw or clip rolling around in there will help identify where the noise is coming from.
