SOURCE: 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.

This could be one of two things. The actual door lock assembly there is something malfunctioning with the part that the striker goes into or that the control pannel is not registering that the door lock is actually closed. One is a $60 fix (the door lock) and the other is approx ($250). Unfortunatly because they are both electronic parts you can't just buy the cheap one put it in and if it doesn't work return it. Most stores have a no return policy on electronics/electrical parts.

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.
