Amy,
You should be able to reverse the door without much problem. You should not have to purchase any hardware. One way you can tell if you can reverse the doors is to look on the opposite side and see if there are some plastic buttons that cover up the holes where you would switch them. Hope this helps!

Change door swing


Ok before you can do this you need to work out weather or not the fridge has provisions for it.
first have a look on the top of the fridge and see if there are screw holes with plugs in them.
if they do then check under the bottom skirt and see if they are there as we'll.
if there is then you are in luck and you can do it very easily .
make sure that all your goods are off the door first.
release the bolts on the top and bottom and change the brackets around to where they need to be .
with some fridges, you swap them around top to bottom, I'm not sure with this one but you will find out soon enough
you will need a small socket set, screw drivers ,a level and about two hours.

I always get confused as to the door swing direction and I need to replace one of the handle sets. Before I order I need know if it is a right or left hand door. Can you help?


Yes, Here's how. It's all about the hinges. Facing the door from the outside, if the hinges are on the left, and the door swings to the inside, it is a left hand opening door. If it swings in with the hinges on the right, it would be a right hand opening door.
Best regards, --W/D--

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

You will probably have to contact the manufacturer to get a replacement. Sometimes you can get lucky on ebay. These items aren't typically found easily if you don't go through them.
