Washer door opens with hinges on the left

I want the door to open with the hinges on the right but the door isn't reverseable like the dryer door. Do they make a right hand door kit?

    why can't they make a front load washer with the optional hinge side - right or left side, like they do with refrigerators?? Very strange if you ask me. What's the problem here?

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.

No right hand kit available. In these situations, sometimes you can move the washer to the left side. The hoses are usually long enough, or can be extended, and there are dryer vents which are low profile telescopic types to allow dryer to be moved easier without need to pull it out into the room any further.
Please don't bother to rate, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my overall score. Thanks.

SOURCE: 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.

Want to switch the side the door opens on my lg dryer


The directions for reversing the door can be found on page 13 and 14, with pictures of the operation. Open the door to reverse. Check the 10 screws that need to be removed (6 on the left, 4 on the right). Remove 4 dummy screws with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws from, and disassemble, the latch. Hold on to the hinge while removing 4 screws from the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Remove the door from the cabinet cover. Move the door to the left side and insert a hinge into a hinge hole. Hold on to the hinge while screwing down the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Insert the latch to the right side and install the screws. Screw down the 4 dummy screws to the right side. Check that the door closes and latches properly.

To reverse the door opening do I need a kit or can it be done just so.


These units are made to have doors to open on the left or right. You just have to look at the hook up now and repeat it on the other side to reverse the door opening.

How do I reverse the door on my Duet WED9400 dryer?


It's mechanically reversible, but requires a right-hand hinge cover plate (not included with basic purchase) in order to fit properly. The RH hinge cover is part number W10181197. The reversal instructions are supplied by whirlpool when you order the door reversal kit.

If you can't find the hinge cover or whole door reversal kit, or just don't want to buy it; you could trim the LH hing cover by hand, or leave it off and cover the hole into the interior with some tape or something

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

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.

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

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.

Hello Teambrant, the screws are a T-20 torx for the door and T-25 for the hinge. You can use the T-20 for both if you need to. Open the door all the way, remove the screws, then as you close the door it will come off. This kit will have all the parts needed for the kit. You will have to have the kit to reverse this door. The plastic retainers slide down, I use a pop sickle stick to push them down.

I've searched around for DIY instructions, but those are exceedingly difficult to locate. It seems that Whirlpool wants you to buy their Door Reversal Kit for 11.99 in order to accomplish this.
