When I woke up this morning I noticed that the compartment door to where the filter is placed was slightly open and the filter was missing. I believe that it was only a few days that I was using my machine unknowingly without it. If this was to happen for a longer length of time would this have caused any problems for it?

No problems for your machine. It just allows the potential for dust and allergens to get in. A couple days won't hurt, but like an HVAC system you don't want a bunch of dust getting in there.
