Re: reversable doors?

Washer doors are not reversible, it will ruin the seal on the door and it will leak. The dryer is.

Re: reversable doors?

Yes indeed both the washer and the dryer doors are very easily reversible. How much are you getting the set for?? Im tryin to sell a mint 03 5500 washer for $400 and was wondering if that was a little high or not.

How do I reverse the door on my Duet WED9400 dryer?

It's mechanically reversible, but requires a right-hand hinge cover plate (not included with basic purchase) in order to fit properly. The RH hinge cover is part number W10181197. The reversal instructions are supplied by whirlpool when you order the door reversal kit.

If you can't find the hinge cover or whole door reversal kit, or just don't want to buy it; you could trim the LH hing cover by hand, or leave it off and cover the hole into the interior with some tape or something

The door on my dryer and washer open the wrong way

On these model you can only reverse the door swing on the dryer but not the washer.
Alternatively, you can switch places with the washer and dryer provided the washer fill and drain hoses are long enough and there is enough room without obstructing the dryer exhaust vent .

If you want to know how to reverse the door swing on the dryer, post your model number and I will try to assist you further.
Good luck!

I looked for door switch kit and some descriptions say for stacking...i don't need that and have duet model 9200 in white. want both doors to open in opposite diections. do i need to buy kits?

ummm.. you can only reverse the door opening in oyour dryer, your washer CANNOT be switched it only opens to the left. the dryer can be switched and the "hine kit" if applicable, only contains a new peicw of trim to cover the exposed trim after revesing the door( the catches are on top and bottom no need to reverse them)

Door opens on the wrong side

Usually not. If you can you will need a door kit from sears. But in most cases the manufacture does not want to mess with the doors seal, so they dont offer a change.

Bosch Dryer WTMC3321

Hello Teambrant, the screws are a T-20 torx for the door and T-25 for the hinge. You can use the T-20 for both if you need to. Open the door all the way, remove the screws, then as you close the door it will come off. This kit will have all the parts needed for the kit. You will have to have the kit to reverse this door. The plastic retainers slide down, I use a pop sickle stick to push them down.
