Hi Wendy, this is AP
I understand you want to reverse the door opening on your Electrolux dryer. I would be happy to assist you with those instructions. Are you able to provide the model number for your dryer? If this is a new dryer you may visit the manufacture website, locate your appliance, scroll down to bottom and you will see a listing of documents available, the installation instruction manual will have the reversal instructions listed. . I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect if you have additional information regarding your question.

Thank you,

SOURCE: Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet

On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.

SOURCE: Electric Clothes Dryer Problem

if the dryer worked fine before with the element not staying on when you open the door, etc, then what you have done is a very common mistake to make, you must have dislodged a wire off, or maybe placed one back in the wrong place, its a very easy error to make, which is why when removing parts for repair on any appliance you must make very detailed notes, better still take digital photographs with a digital camera double check any wires etc, don't worry i am a retired appliance engineer and even we can make this mistake

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.

Try this. Set the timer. Open the door, press and hold the light switch. Rotate the drum by hand then while still holding the light switch turn on the dryer. If it starts then clos the door while removing your finger quickly. If this problem persists it could be the starter on your motor.

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?


Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

I closed my garage door but when i came back home it was open. i just noticed it again after i left that the door opened by itself after i had closed it? The wall unit is Wayne Dalton model number...


Watch the door when it closes. If it is traveling too far and hits the floor the safety will cause it to reverse to the open position. This is a common cause. Also your door sensors may need adjusting. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering.

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

Door goes up on its own after using remote to close door upon returning home to find door is open


Make sure the door doesn't hit the floor and then reverse. If it does you need to adjust the 'down limit' which is on the side of the motor unit. Turn it a bit in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. You may also have a bad wall control or the wiring to it. The wall control goes bad from use and the staples holding the wiring sometimes cuts through the insulation and cause intermittent operation. You can eliminate this possibility by removing the wire on terminal #1 on the rear of the motor unit. You can eliminate the wall control by removing the wires connected to the back. Your remotes will still work.

The door reverses back to open position instead of closing


SOUNDS LIKE A SENSITIVITY ISSUE UNHOOK THE DOOR AND TRY IT MANUALLY TO BE SURE IT DOESN'T BIND OR IS TOO HARD TO OPEN OR CLOSE.

IF ALL IS WELL CHECK THE SENSITIVITY SETTINGS ON THE BACK OR SIDE OF THE OPENER.

YOU WANT THIS SET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE AND STILL OPERATE THE DOOR WITHOUT REVERSING.

NOTE: THE FULL RANGE OF ADJUSTMENT IS ONLY ABOUT 3/4 TURN SO MAKE A VERY SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT AND THEN TRY IT AGAIN.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Washing machine doors


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.
