Washer door opens with hinges on the left

I would like my front loading washer door to open with the hinges on the right to facilitate easier loading of the dryer which is on the left. The dryer door is reverseable, but the washer door isn't. Do they make a right hand kit?

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.

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

Need exact dimensions of duet washer & dryer bought in 2006. Also how to prepare for moving same appliances.


Basic measurements for washer and dryer with door closed and not on optional pedestal(s) are 31.5" deep (front to back), 27" wide, (left to right), and 38" high. For installation and usage consider the leveling feet, use of pedestal(s), water hookups, drain hose for washer, and vent (exhaust) hose for dryer. You may want to position the washer on your left, and the dryer on the right due to hinge location, and for ease of transferring laundry from one machine to the other. Depth of washer (front to back) with door open 90 degrees is 50.5" and the dryer is 51.5". At the factory, four (4) shipping bolts are attached to the back of the washer to secure the drum for shipping. These should be re-installed prior to the move, (if you still have them). To see the supporting documents, go to; http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/ewpl_mic_604_021.pdf

I hope this helps you as well as others. Please rate my answer. Handiest1. 10-1-10

Can the door be reversed? ie open from left to right-----hinge on right side If so do you have instructions on how to do it?


Due to the shape of the washer door, and how it seats against the control panel, the door cannot be reversed on the Duet washer. There are no cut outs along the door opening to accommodate the door hinge screws and the door latch on opposite sides. The Duet DRYER, on the other hand, CAN be reversed. This may be an alternative configuration for you. Let me know if you want to know how to reverse the dryer door.

I have whirlpool model 9450 dryer. Is it possible to change the door opening from hinged on the right side to hinged on the left side?


It advertises the door as being reversible. Sorry I'm not sure how to accomplish this, but maybe check for an online installation manual?

Trying to get the top up on maytag model #mdg7400aww. Need to get some nails out that was left in pocket & dryed. can you help.


For the model washer you have listed, there should be a a couple of retaining clips inside the front seam where the top panel meets the washer front. If you push a putty knife in the seam about 2 inches in from each side, you will be able to depress the retaining clips to release the top panel. With the retaining clips released, the top panel will open up exposing the mounting screws that hold the washer front in place. Remove the mounting screws and the entire washer front can be removed, giving you full access the washer interior. If you have any questions let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag neptune dryer making load noise seems unbalanced


Sounds more like the dryer drum seal is deteriorating.
If the dryer tumbles the belt is intact.
To access the belt.
Open the door.
Remove 4 screws on right and left side of the door opening.
Raise the door on the hinge side and remove it.
Pull the front panel forward and remove it.
From there you can see what to do next.

Washer door opens with hinges on the left


Don't you think it would really boost sales if you did make a washer that the front loader door could open left to right . For homes that have very limited laundry room. and no way to switch.

Electrolux has a reversible door for both front load washer and dryer. Just found that out at HHGregg because we need to put our washer to the right of the dryer, and none of the other makes will allow the washer door swing to be switched.
