WHIRLPOOL DUET DRYER

I've been trying to reverse the dryer door hinge so that it opens from left to right. Seems easy to switch, but not so. Took entire door apart trying to remove hinge. Unsuccessful! Any suggestions?

    the whirlpool repair man reversed the door on my duet dryer and did not need a door reversal kit to do it -- however, i can not figure out how to move the door back to the other side -- any ideas?

    It seems the plastic facing must be removed to replace the door after the hinge is reversed. If so, how do the pieces come off without breaking them or the retaining clips?

I just did it too but can't get the locking tabs unlocked (by turning the inner ring clockwise) to spin the glass 180° like the instructions say. So my new dryer sits with the door laying in parts off of the dryer. Any suggestions on how to get those tabs unlocked? I can see how it works but tried but I guess I'm not strong enough.

I just did it twice because I couldn't make up my mind. Just remove the door. remove all philips head screws and remove the "layers" of the door. Remove the hinge assembly and the "blank" on the opposite side. Now you have to lift off the plastic ring AND glass and spin it 360. (thats the part that tricked me) no you can reassemble.

I've searched around for DIY instructions, but those are exceedingly difficult to locate. It seems that Whirlpool wants you to buy their Door Reversal Kit for 11.99 in order to accomplish this.

How to change doors from right to left on Whirlpool Duet


Duet dryer doors cannot be reversed for the swing. They wil only open one way. Depending on your model of washer the newers ones will allow you to reverse the door swing without a kit. The older units require a kit to reverse the washer door.

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

Can the door be reversed? ie open from left to right-----hinge on right side If so do you have instructions on how to do it?


Due to the shape of the washer door, and how it seats against the control panel, the door cannot be reversed on the Duet washer. There are no cut outs along the door opening to accommodate the door hinge screws and the door latch on opposite sides. The Duet DRYER, on the other hand, CAN be reversed. This may be an alternative configuration for you. Let me know if you want to know how to reverse the dryer door.

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)

Zanussi ZDC67550 Dryer, door swing change?


Hi
just reversed the doors in 15-20 mins. It worked for me. You do need to be a competent DIYer to do this.
If in doubt, do now't. Get in an engineer

Disconnect from mains (obviously)
Remove top using 7mm nut driver/spanner
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the door - Door will come away from dryer.
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the white top and bottom blanking plates
pull out the switch blanking plate
Locate the PINK wires connecting the switch/latch mechanism inside the dryer at the top. This will be taped to a blue wire.
Unscrew the 2 smaller cross-head screws holding the latch/switch assembly whilst holding the pink wire to stop the mechanism dropping inside the dryer.
Pull up the latch mechanism and unravel the black tape holding it to the blue wire.
Drop the latch assembly down the lefthand side of the dryer and refit using the 2 small cross-head screws.
Retape to the blue wier and feed the PINK wires through the plastic retainers.
Fit the white blanking plates to the RIGHT handside of the door opening.
Swap the hinges and the switch latch on the door (don't lose the spring !!!, refitting the hinge blanking plates(ease these out with a small flathead screwdriver covered witha bit of insulating tape to avoid damage.)
Fit the door using the 2 cross-head screws you have left
Refit the top.

Connect to the mains and switch on to the sound of £80 you have just saved yourself !!
