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.

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.

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.
