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.

Switching a kenmore dryer door from right to left. I have taken off the door.. but it looks like I need to remove the plastic covering on the door to remove the hinge and install on the other side. There...

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.

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.
