How do you reverse the door


If its a side by side like the one showing on your post, I doubt you can unless there is a spot showing for under the door, and the water and electrical lines are long enough to switch.

Garage door opener keeps reversing as I try to close my door


Mine do that. The sensors located at the bottom on either side of the door have to "see" each other. It is very easy to bump them out of alignment. Check that first. It is possible that they are faulty, and replacements cost about $30. You can't, and shouldn't bypass these for safety reasons.

Is it possible to reverse door swing on dryer? My daughter has a new Elite front load dryer that swings from left.


REVERSING DOOR SWING
Your dryer is designed so the door swing may be reversed at any time without additional parts. Conversion is accomplished by transferring hinges to the opposite side of the cabinet.
To change the direction of the door opening:
1. Open the dryer door. Remove the four hinge hole plugs from the left side of the door opening. Place nearby for future installation. NOTE: You may need a plastic knife to help pull out the plugs. Be careful not to scratch the paint.

2. Remove the four screws that secure the door hinges to the dryer front panel (see below). NOTE: Remove one screw from each of the two hinges first. Hold the door firmly before removing the last two screws.

3. Rotate the door 180° and reinstall the door hinges to the dryer front panel with the four screws.

4. Install the four hinge hole plugs in the open screw holes on the right side of the door opening.

Hope this helped Tim

Reversing sensor blinking


Tweak the sensors to see if you can stop the blinking. They must be pointed at one another and not blinking for them to work properly.

The door reverses back to open position instead of closing


SOUNDS LIKE A SENSITIVITY ISSUE UNHOOK THE DOOR AND TRY IT MANUALLY TO BE SURE IT DOESN'T BIND OR IS TOO HARD TO OPEN OR CLOSE.

IF ALL IS WELL CHECK THE SENSITIVITY SETTINGS ON THE BACK OR SIDE OF THE OPENER.

YOU WANT THIS SET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE AND STILL OPERATE THE DOOR WITHOUT REVERSING.

NOTE: THE FULL RANGE OF ADJUSTMENT IS ONLY ABOUT 3/4 TURN SO MAKE A VERY SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT AND THEN TRY IT AGAIN.

HOPE THIS HELPS
