The hinge is not difficult at all. take the door off and remove the front panel to make it easier.

    The top flips up and there are 2 screws in the upper corners. Two screws where the lint screen goes on and clips in front that will release with a putty blade.

In General the deconstruction of the door is not needed. With a great deal of Kenmore dryers you can simply turn the door 180 degrees and reinstall it.

How do you change the dryer door from a left to right opening to a right to left opening. Thid is a series 90 kenmore


Open the dryer door. There should be approximately three screws that hold the hinges on there on the right side (as you said yours currently is a left to right opening). Remove the screws that hold the door on. As you hold the dryer door removed from the dryer, turn it counter clockwise so that the handle is now on the opposite side. Lay it on the floor. Now, remove the screw hole covers from the opposite side of the dryer opening ( the left side) (these can be removed with a fingernail or a thin flat tipped screw driver to pry them out). This will expose the screw holes on the opposite (left)side of the dryer. Take the removed covers and place them in the original screw holes on the right side. Now simply reinstall the door hinges in the newly exposed screw holes on the left side. This will only work if your dryer is designed to have both types of openings. Good Luck!

I have a Kenmore dryer from 1979 and when I open the door it just falls down. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Check the door springs. One or both may be broken. Remove bottom panel and look to the right or left sides for the springs. If broken, just replace the same. One end of the spring hooks into the door hinge assembly and the other end hooks into the base of the frame. You should be able to see a hole in the frame to hook the spring as you will also see a hole in the hinge assembly. Easy fix. Just have to know where to look.

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.
