Whirlpool refrigerator door reversal

Hello. I am in Australia. We have a Whirlpool WRBE43TW refrigerator. I wish to reverse the fridge doors from right opening to left opening. Everything looks perfectly reversible, except for the centre hinge between the fridge door and freezer door. This hinge is not symmetrical. Am I missing something? Is a left opening hinge available please? I will try to get an answer from Whirlpool next week if necessary, but was hoping to sort this out this weekend. Many thanks for any help!

SOURCE: We have a fridge/freezer, upright

if you can notice that the doors have plastic plugs to the other side of the hinge then it is design to be reversible.

but if there is no indication that you can transfer the hinge to the other side of the door, then it is not designed to be reversible and there is nothing you can do about it.

i'm not sure if the old fridge are designed to be reversible.

How do I reverse the doors on my whirlpool ET18NK


There are screws on the top and bottom of the doors & fridge itself, look for the rubber(sometimes plastic) caps covering them. Just reverse the screws to the opposite side you prefer. USUALLY REQUIRES 2 people to reinstall

How do you reverse the door


If its a side by side like the one showing on your post, I doubt you can unless there is a spot showing for under the door, and the water and electrical lines are long enough to switch.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.

How to remove doors of a whirlpool 6vmw47 top mount fridge/freezer


Hello Hicherringto,

I understand that you would like instructions on how to remove the doors on your fridge. Most common on top mount freezers/fridges you need to start at the top and work your way down.

1. Locate the freezer hinge top part where the door swings.
2. Remove the plastic cover over the henge. (top of the box if covered)
3. Remove the screws holding the henge in place.
4. Lift up on the henge
5. Open the freezer door and lift up (the door should lift off the bottom pin)
6. Open the Fridge door and remove the screws from the hinge that the freezer door sat on
7. Remove the hinge from the fridge door by lifting up
8. Open and lift up on the fridge door
9.Reinstall in reverse

That is the easiest way to remove the doors on a top mount freezer fridge. Note that when you reinstall the doors you will have to adjust the hinges so that the seals seal properly. The hinges have enough of a grove that you use them to adjust the doors.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

I was given a Whirlpool ET1FTK 20.8 cu ft refrigerator/freezer. Door frame going thru is 29 inches. Need to take off doors of fridge to get in house. Anything you can send me. Don't have any of the books...


Start at the top and remove the hinge (5/16 socket). Slip the door off and remove the center hinge. Slip the lower door off and remove the lower hinge. Now is the time to reverse the door swing if it needs it. Move the handles to the other side and reassemble with hinges on the other side if you do.

We have a Bosch Fridge Freezer Model No KGV3120GB/03 we wish to reverser hang the doors but can't undo the top post in the fridge and bottom one in the freezer don't want to apply too much pressure in case...


We have just reversed the doors on our Bosch Fridge Freezer. The posts were very difficult to unscrew but was eventually possible using 2 mole grips. It is definitely a screw fitting. Good Luck.
