What would be the difference between

扉はやはり音もなく、押されるまま動いた。

and

扉はやはり音もなく、押されるまま動いた。

When do you use ままで instead of ままに?

    Interestingly this sentence without either に or で is in the Japanese translation of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables – virmaior Dec 2 '15 at 1:59

扉はやはり音もなく、押されるままで動いた。

This is unnatural.
ままで is usually used to indicate that the state is unchanged; e.g. 凍ったままである (remain frozen)
