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

I want to change the direction of the opening on my kenmore from right to left. Is this difficult?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
What I understand from your query is that you want to alter the door opening direction If I'm right... Altering the door such that it opens on the counter side is possible. but in most cases, it ruins the working of the device completely.. actually changing the direction causes many things to go wild from the refrigerator light switch. to the refrigerator doors gasket. Also it requires some new holes to be drilled at the other side... That turns the alteration to more complex and tricky.. In a nut shell, I would not suggest to have such changes to your equipment.

Have a nice day,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,

Machine stops after wash cycle, restarts when i bang the lid.


sounds as if hte lid switch is not activating correctly, the lid actuator is actulle hte under side of left hand door hinge. if you lkift the lid and feel under the left side og the lid you fell the metal lid hinge, simply slip a hollow shafted screwdriver over the hingeitself and bend slightly back, this will make the lid come in contact with swict a little bit easier
