Question about Whirlpool ER6AHKXPQ Top Freezer Refrigerator

Change sides for hinges

My brother is moving and gave me his Whirlpool ETIPHKXPQ01. I am thrilled, of course. A close friend is getting my older fridge (also a whirl pool). I have it sitting in the living room to 'settle' after rding on it's side from Cope Cod to southeastern Conn.. My question is, the doors open in the wrong direction (the side by my wall and window, right to left). Is there a way to easily change the hinges so the the doors will open the other way (the side next to my counter, left to right)?Thank you

    I saw the grommets already, that is what led me to believe that the changeout was possible. I just didn't want to break any parts, especially the plastic hinge covers.

Doors are reversible but a little work.once you start taking hinges off you will see inserts that are covered with a plastic grommet.pull those out and put grommets back on other side.you should see it is very easy but time consuming.

Change doors from left to right


Depending on the brand, this "may" be possible. Look for a mounting bracket area on the side you want to change to. Is so, have someone help you, two person job!

We want to switch the door so it opens on the other side? Model # 596.72212200


Ii can not locate specific instructions or a manual for the model number you gave. Here is a general description of how to change the doors: If the doors can be reversed there should be mounting holes at the top and bottom of the doors opposite where the hinges are now. (They may be closed with plastic plugs that can be pried out.) Check also how the existing handles are mounted. There should be holes that correspond to having the handles on the opposite side. (Sometimes they are disguised by a manufacturer's nameplate over them.) If there are such holes then start at the top hinge of the door. Pry the (plastic) cover off if there is one. Remove the bolts/screws and remove the hinge support. There is a post on it that fits into the hole at the top of the door. Remove the door by lifting it up off the bottom hinge post. Keep track of any washers, etc. that may be there. Unscrew the bottom hinge support. Remove (and save) any plastic plugs and install the hinge supports and doors in reverse order (bottom to top) on the other side. If there are separate door stops on the bottoms of the doors near the hinges that keep the doors from swinging all the way open, make sure you move them also to the other side. Relocate the handles. Put the plastic plugs, nameplate, etc. in the old holes.

How do i change my freezer door to open the other way


you will need to take the upper hinge off first, then the door will lift off the bottom hinge. Then take off bot hinge and move both hinges to the holes on the other side. As far as the handel goes, you may need to flip it over or switch the handel to the other side

You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

Older whirlpool super capacity 465


you will have to open the hinges part way, and they will stay in that position. Then carefully slide the door back onto both hinges at the same time. It may be a two person task

Doors need adjustment


You should be able to take the top trim caps off the door hinges, loosen the hinge screws a little, and move the door(s) away from the center of the refrig, then re-tighten the hinge screws to get the doors to stop hitting each other. You may want to check the bottom hinge(s) for the hight. The bottom hinges and the bottom of the doors have matching plastic "ramped" washers, which raise the door as it is opened, which help them to self close. If one of those is broken, the hight will be off.

Refrigerator door has stopped closing automatically


You may have a worn door bearing.  Have a look.  Both sides have the same hinge assembly for comparison.  Also possible that the hinges have come loose.
Clean out the hinge by spraying on a little WD 40 first...it may fix everything.

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service!

If its new your warranty is for 12 months!

If the dishwasher is 10 years or older its not worth investing money to fix it! The new ones are mush more efficient and clean better!

Either way this is a service problem to remedy!
Below I gave you a nation wide service thats very good!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PS. PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
