You can't reverse the washer door, only the dryer door.
They don't make the washers reversible because the door latch and wiring harness would have to be relocated to the other side. It just isn't practical from a manufacturing standpoint.
Sorry, Mike

How do you reverse the front door on a Kenmore HE4t washer?

The Kenmore HE4T washer does not have a reversible door. The matching dryer would have a reversible door.

Some newer washers do have a reversible door but it is still a very small number of washer that allow you to reverse the door.

You can not reverse the door on an HE4T washer.

Reverse door kenmore washer

Unfortunately it can't be done. The dryer's door can be reversed but you're stuck with the default configuration with the washer.

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.

Kenmore elite washer and dryer

The door can be reversed on the dryer but not the washer.
To reverse the washer, the door latch and wiring harness would have to be relocated, which is not practical from a manufacturing standpoint.
Post back if you have any questions.
