Not that simple like it is on a modern refrigerator. The electrical wiring is set up for a door safety switch. That switch can probably work either door swing. The door would need to be reversed and holes cut in the dryer for the latch. The old latch would need to sealed up. It is uncertain that the metal on both sides is capable of supporting the door hinge. In any case it seems like a difficult and doomed task.

Now at the backside of washer door panel there are two screws remove them and pull washer door panel towards you. under the door panel connected to panel is where you will find door switch. if you jump out door switch and it works then you need new door switch.

We have a white-westinghouse dryer. serials # wde446jbs1. in the off position the buzzer constantly buzzes, in any type of run position there is a loud humming or muffled buzz. only when the door is...


ok, there is a chance that a wire from the door switch has come loose when she close the door. unplug dryer,take front panel off and check wires at door switch. you may have 3 wires, one on one side and 2 on the other. the single wire is the common, on the other side one is for the dryer operation the other for the end of cycle which can be use for a buzzer or cavity light.

LEN2000WO, has power, start button only clicks.


On my dryer, with the same symptoms, the door switch was bad. You might unplug the dryer, pop the two latches right under the top on the left and right sides, lift the top and look down the inside of the machine and locate the door switch. You can check it with a multimeter should be 0 ohms (or close to it) with the door closed and over range (open) with the door open. Be very careful testing it with power on as it probably has 120 volts on one side of the switch. Best of luck. I replaced my switch with one I bought at our local appliance parts store. Just take the bad switch with you to match the size.

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.

How do you reverse the door on a front load dryer. Model #GLE02152ES1


Remove the hinges from the dryer and then unscrew them from the door. Remove the 4 screws on the opposite side of the door so the inner and outer door panel detach. You will also have to remove 3 phillips head screws that hold the door handle to the panel so you can flip it, because top and bottom are not symmetrical. One of the 3 is hidden under the handle, you will see it when the other 2 are off. Rotate the handle and reassemble handle and inner door panel. Put the hinges back on opposite side and also switch the door latch. PS, one glitch is that the light cutoff switch is on the right side, so the door has to seat well to turn it off.

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
