When dryer finishes it just keeps on beeping


Instructions

1

Open the door to the dryer and remove the screws in the hinge. Lay a towel on top of the dryer. Place the dryer door on the towel with the inside facing up.
2

Remove the screws from the inside of the dryer door. Disassemble the dryer door carefully, removing the cover on the right side of the innermost section of the door and the shield and hinge from the left side of the innermost section. Reattach the side cover to the left side of the innermost part of the door. Install the new shield to the right side of the door section, with the flat side against the door and the notches facing up (they will face into the dryer). Attach the hinge on the same side as the shield.

3

Set the top section aside. Rotate the remainder of the door 180 degrees so that the handle is on the left of the upside down door. Check that the latch aligns with the cover before screwing the door back together. Screw the hinge into the corresponding holes on the left side of the dryer door frame. Remove any stickers that might be blocking the holes.
4

Check the alignment of the door by opening and closing it several times. Loosen the screws on the hinge and nudge the door slightly until the fit is correct. Tighten the screws into place.

I always get confused as to the door swing direction and I need to replace one of the handle sets. Before I order I need know if it is a right or left hand door. Can you help?


Yes, Here's how. It's all about the hinges. Facing the door from the outside, if the hinges are on the left, and the door swings to the inside, it is a left hand opening door. If it swings in with the hinges on the right, it would be a right hand opening door.

Is it possible to reverse door swing on dryer? My daughter has a new Elite front load dryer that swings from left.


REVERSING DOOR SWING
Your dryer is designed so the door swing may be reversed at any time without additional parts. Conversion is accomplished by transferring hinges to the opposite side of the cabinet.
To change the direction of the door opening:
1. Open the dryer door. Remove the four hinge hole plugs from the left side of the door opening. Place nearby for future installation. NOTE: You may need a plastic knife to help pull out the plugs. Be careful not to scratch the paint.

2. Remove the four screws that secure the door hinges to the dryer front panel (see below). NOTE: Remove one screw from each of the two hinges first. Hold the door firmly before removing the last two screws.

3. Rotate the door 180° and reinstall the door hinges to the dryer front panel with the four screws.

4. Install the four hinge hole plugs in the open screw holes on the right side of the door opening.

Hope this helped Tim

How do you change the dryer door from a left to right opening to a right to left opening. Thid is a series 90 kenmore


Open the dryer door. There should be approximately three screws that hold the hinges on there on the right side (as you said yours currently is a left to right opening). Remove the screws that hold the door on. As you hold the dryer door removed from the dryer, turn it counter clockwise so that the handle is now on the opposite side. Lay it on the floor. Now, remove the screw hole covers from the opposite side of the dryer opening ( the left side) (these can be removed with a fingernail or a thin flat tipped screw driver to pry them out). This will expose the screw holes on the opposite (left)side of the dryer. Take the removed covers and place them in the original screw holes on the right side. Now simply reinstall the door hinges in the newly exposed screw holes on the left side. This will only work if your dryer is designed to have both types of openings. Good Luck!

I want to reverse the day on my dryer. How do I


If this is a Kenmore Elite dryer this is possible. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the dryer door by supporting the door while removing the screws on the hinge.

2. Lay the door face down on a good working surface like a table. Place some towels under the door to protect the surface.

3. Remove the series of screws on the INSIDE of the door and it comes apart in two halves.

4. Remove the hinge from the door and remove the plastic blank from the opposite side of the door.

5. Remove the door front plexiglas and rotate and reinstall so the door handle is on the oposite side of the door.

6. Reinstall door hinge on the opposite side of the door and reinstall plastic blank to cover where the hinge used to be.

7. Reinstall the inner door facing and screw the two halves together.

8. Pop out the small plugs on the door facing, so you can reinstall the door to the dryer. Place the plugs into the orginal screw holes on the opposite side of the door facing.

9. Reinstall door. The door will now open in the opposite direction.

Since the door switch(es) and catch are located on the top and bottom of the door facing (depending on model number) you don't have to worry about removing any switches or door catches.

This is a fairly simple process that shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes to accomplish. If you have any questions along the way, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps.

IGNITOR


To get to the ignitor, you must remove the front panel. To do this, first open the door and remove the two screws and plastic tabs that are directly across from the door hinges (left side if rt hand swing door and right side if left hand swing door). Next, support the door and remove the two screws from the hinges and remove the door. The front panel is now loose and will pivot down from the top out. Pull it out a couple inches then straight up and out of the way. You now have access to most all of the components internal of your dryer, including the ignitor. I know it's late, but didn't see an answer for it yet....and I have mine apart right now for the same problem (runs with no heat).

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.
