Question about Maytag Neptune MCE8000AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Reversing door We were told the door on our dryer was reversible and all we had to do was remove the screws, reverse the hinges and reverse the key. Apparently there were nuts on the screws and they have fallen inside the cabinet. We are unable to attach the door as there is nothing to thread the screws into.

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.

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.

Can't find any instructions - can I reverse the door from the left side to the right side?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The answer is YES you can reverse the door.

Here is the text of how to reverse the door:


DOOR ASSEMBLY & HINGES
The door assembly is reversible. It contains an inertial vibration damper comprised of a steel plate suspended with springs. The
damper is designed to tune out excessive vibrations generated by the machine during the spin cycle. Replacement inner door liners are
shipped with the vibration damper in place.
REMOVAL
1. Open the door and remove the center screw of each hinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening.
2. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the hinge area slightly. Draw the door assembly away from the machine. This will disengage the hinges from the slots in the
front shroud (Figure 5-1). If the hinges bind, press out on the plastic shroud near the hinge toward the cabinet.
Figure 5-1
REVERSAL
1. Repeat the above steps and, remove the corresponding sheet metal spacers on the opposite side.
2. Remove the hinges from the door and relocate them to the other side of the door.
3. Remount the door into the new slots and secure with one screw into each hinge.
4. Mount the sheet metal spacers onto the side where the hinges were previously to cover the hinge slots in the front shroud.

That is the text without the whole service manual pictures.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

I want to reverse the day on my dryer. How do I


If this is a Kenmore Elite dryer this is possible. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the dryer door by supporting the door while removing the screws on the hinge.

2. Lay the door face down on a good working surface like a table. Place some towels under the door to protect the surface.

3. Remove the series of screws on the INSIDE of the door and it comes apart in two halves.

4. Remove the hinge from the door and remove the plastic blank from the opposite side of the door.

5. Remove the door front plexiglas and rotate and reinstall so the door handle is on the oposite side of the door.

6. Reinstall door hinge on the opposite side of the door and reinstall plastic blank to cover where the hinge used to be.

7. Reinstall the inner door facing and screw the two halves together.

8. Pop out the small plugs on the door facing, so you can reinstall the door to the dryer. Place the plugs into the orginal screw holes on the opposite side of the door facing.

9. Reinstall door. The door will now open in the opposite direction.

Since the door switch(es) and catch are located on the top and bottom of the door facing (depending on model number) you don't have to worry about removing any switches or door catches.

This is a fairly simple process that shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes to accomplish. If you have any questions along the way, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps.

Change the door direction on Kenmore 600 dryer


hi there. this is an easy fix. just take a close look at the hinges and screws on the door. note the size of the screws and the type of screw [usually phillips].

Now look at the other side of the door and the frame and you will see little plastic caps. pry those off. those are the screw holes to allow you to reverse the door.

now just unscrew the door and the latch and reverse everything... enjoy.

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.

Zanussi ZDC67550 Dryer, door swing change?


Hi
just reversed the doors in 15-20 mins. It worked for me. You do need to be a competent DIYer to do this.
If in doubt, do now't. Get in an engineer

Disconnect from mains (obviously)
Remove top using 7mm nut driver/spanner
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the door - Door will come away from dryer.
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the white top and bottom blanking plates
pull out the switch blanking plate
Locate the PINK wires connecting the switch/latch mechanism inside the dryer at the top. This will be taped to a blue wire.
Unscrew the 2 smaller cross-head screws holding the latch/switch assembly whilst holding the pink wire to stop the mechanism dropping inside the dryer.
Pull up the latch mechanism and unravel the black tape holding it to the blue wire.
Drop the latch assembly down the lefthand side of the dryer and refit using the 2 small cross-head screws.
Retape to the blue wier and feed the PINK wires through the plastic retainers.
Fit the white blanking plates to the RIGHT handside of the door opening.
Swap the hinges and the switch latch on the door (don't lose the spring !!!, refitting the hinge blanking plates(ease these out with a small flathead screwdriver covered witha bit of insulating tape to avoid damage.)
Fit the door using the 2 cross-head screws you have left
Refit the top.

Connect to the mains and switch on to the sound of £80 you have just saved yourself !!

Electricity kills Be careful
