Providing yours is a reversible model the job is fairly easy. You start from the top. Pop the hinge cover off and remove the top hinge screws. Look over to the other side first and see if their are some remove able plastic plugs so ya can move the hinge over. Remove the top hinge and the top door lifts off. Move the handle to the other side. Next remove the middle hinge and lift the bottom door off the base hinge. Be careful not to loose any spacers or plastic inserts that might be in the door. Move the handle over to the other side. Move the base hinge to the other side. Remove the decorative plastic plugs from the center hing and put them in the holes you just took them screw out of. Then remount the bottom door and center hinge. Next place the top door on and the top hinge. As you tighten down the top make sure the door is level. The hinge has slots in it that allow a lot of wiggle room to get the door level. Tighten down the screws as you hold the door in place for a sweet fit. Snap the hinge cover back on.
Optional: To make the doors close a little tighter raise the front legs slightly to make the door hug the ice box tighter.

Depending on the brand, this "may" be possible. Look for a mounting bracket area on the side you want to change to. Is so, have someone help you, two person job!

After changing the right door hinge on my bosch hbl455auc the door closes but the upper oven door is 1/8 lower at right top than left. How can I realign the door to level?


There are adjustment screws or bolts on the hinge attachments to the oven. Loosen them and adjust the door using wedges to hold the door in place.

Washer door opens with hinges on the left


nope sorry but all front load washers are built with a locking system on the door and that makes them impossible to change the door swing.
the only thing you can do is move the washer and dryer position by getting longer hoses and venting so you can have the washer on the left and the dryer on the right.

Cannot reverse door on Electrolux fridge freezer


Basically they needed to supply an additional door mount for the left hand side of the door as well as the right hand side. Problem now sorted. Poor instructions in the manual didn't help here!
