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.

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?

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.

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.
