Question about Electrolux Dryers
Need to adjust door opening.
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.

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.

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.

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.
