Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric 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?
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.
