Question about LG Washing Machines

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.

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.

Door broken at hinge area on Maytag front load washer 24".


Try using some J.B. Weld on it instead of glue. It will essential form a weld and should hold up better. You might want to give that a try. Good luck and best wishes.

Need to replace my Maytag the door is reverseable. Who makes those now?


The doors are reversabe they go from left hand open to right hand open. Just reverse the hinges, put the door fillers ( triangle shape go toward the front. Remove the plug put it in the other sidel. Now take the metal door strke and put it on the other side, Then take the filler from on side and put it on the other side. Takes 10 to 15 minutes to make the change.

No need to purchase another door!

Can you change the way the door opens on the neptune washer


Yes you can reverse the door on your washer.
Open the door, remove the screw in the middle of both hinges, (carefull not to drop them inside). Lift the door straight up and "wiggle" the door hinge straight out of the slot.
On the opposite side of the opening you will find two inserts, remove them and install them into the slots you removed the door from. Now the fun part... remove the hinges from your door side.
Make sure you note how they attach, now intall them on the other side of the door,EXACTLY, the way they were first installed. Do one at at time. After you have them on the other side and you put the other screws back in the side you removed the hinge from, lift the door and slide the hinge into the bottom and top slots of the washer opening. Secure the hinge with screws removed in the beginning making sure the door is closing properly and locking.

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.

open up the door, on the left unscrew 2 screws at door, on the right unscrew 2 screws at hinge....pull cover out. you will see a hinge on the left and the right that holds down the top to the front panel, you will be able to lift up, you may have some hoses on the left you may have to unloosen to pull top all the way up..

For best washing for front load, i recommend Melapower He detergents.

you only use 1/2 fl.oz, works great! if you want to know how you can get it, contact me marcwhite33@comcast.net

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.
