The door switch is a saftey switch that will prevent the machine from operating and the drum from turning if the switch is not 'closed' or 'made', i.e. Door Closed. These can eaasily be replaced and are relatively cheap components.

Can I change the side the door opens?


Unfortunately you cannot reverse the doors on this model. There have only been two front load washers that I know of that had reversible doors, the maytag neptune and amana front loaders. Your matching dryer for this model, I believe has a reversible door, but you'll have to purchase a kit to do it. IF needed maybe you can switch the dryer and washer locations to make them more accessible?
Sorry, and good luck to you!

The dryer does not cut off when door opens and also will not stop when on off button is pressed. To switch it off you have to turn the timer to off or switch off at mains.


The secondary microswitch controlling the door is shorted. Check the microswitch which is located at the door perimeter and have it replaced.

it is unfortunate that this has happened.
sorry to here. it is most common for front loading washing machines and dryers to have a faulty door switch, although new machines have become increasingly difficult to diagnose. and parts have become much more expensive. Its possible he may be able to by pass the door switch to test the machine or test the door switch.
Hope this helps

Washing machine doors


Electrolux has a reversible door for both front load washer and dryer. Just found that out at HHGregg because we need to put our washer to the right of the dryer, and none of the other makes will allow the washer door swing to be switched.
