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.

How do I reverse the door on my Whirlpool Duet WED9270XW dryer?


George, try the following-- hope it helps!

Things You'll Need
  • Torx T25 screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Large towel
Instructions
    • 1 Remove the four Torx screws holding the door hinge to the dryer. Lift the door up and pull it away from the dryer to remove it. Lay the door face-down on a large towel to protect it. Screw the four Torx screws back into the holes in the dryer.
    • 2 Remove the two Trox screws holding the door strikeplate onto the dryer's door jamb. Remove the strikeplate and install it on the opposite side of the door jamb.
    • 3 Remove the Phillips screws along the inside of the door. Lift the inner door up and remove it from the outer door. Remove the six Phillips screws along the outer window retainer. Rotate the outer window assembly clockwise until the tabs on the window line up with holes on the frame, and lift the outer window retainer up and off of the window's trim ring.
    • 4 Rotate the outer window itself 180 degrees to rotate the handle to the other side. Replace the outer window retainer and rotate it counter-clockwise to lock it into place. Replace the six Phillips screws.
    • 5 Remove the Torx screws holding the hinge and latch plate in place. Reinstall the hinge on the opposite side of the door. Reinstall the latch plate on the opposite side of the hinge. Slide the inner door back into the outer door and replace the Trox screws.
    • 6 Remove the four Torx screws on the hinge slot on the door jamb. Slide the door into the door jamb and replace the screws

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

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?

Is it possible to change the dryer door that will open from right to left instead from left to right


Yes ,most dryers will allow this. although you will have to remove door to do it. You should see mount holes on the other side of door sometimes have plugs to remove or srews. The hinges on the door will have to be moved to opposite side. Once again should see mount holes. The whole operation takes a matter of minutes once you see how it is done. Hope this helps

Dryer door won't close


You probably bent the hinges if you can't see an actual crease in the door. Just pull the screws out of the hinge where it meets the door, and using a large pair of channel locks manipulate the hinge back to it's proper alignment, stopping to put door back on every once in a while to check it. Simple as that. You may have to flip unit over on it's back if the mounting screws for the hinges are not accessible.
