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.

No all washing maschines are made with a left hand hinge and are not reversable, you can reverse the dryer door if needed not the washer

Reverse door swing


check if there are little plastic screw hole covers on the non-hinge side of the door. If there are, then simply unscrew the hinge, remove the plastic covers, and swap it to the other side!

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.

Can't find any instructions - can I reverse the door from the left side to the right side?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The answer is YES you can reverse the door.

Here is the text of how to reverse the door:


DOOR ASSEMBLY & HINGES
The door assembly is reversible. It contains an inertial vibration damper comprised of a steel plate suspended with springs. The
damper is designed to tune out excessive vibrations generated by the machine during the spin cycle. Replacement inner door liners are
shipped with the vibration damper in place.
REMOVAL
1. Open the door and remove the center screw of each hinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening.
2. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the hinge area slightly. Draw the door assembly away from the machine. This will disengage the hinges from the slots in the
front shroud (Figure 5-1). If the hinges bind, press out on the plastic shroud near the hinge toward the cabinet.
Figure 5-1
REVERSAL
1. Repeat the above steps and, remove the corresponding sheet metal spacers on the opposite side.
2. Remove the hinges from the door and relocate them to the other side of the door.
3. Remount the door into the new slots and secure with one screw into each hinge.
4. Mount the sheet metal spacers onto the side where the hinges were previously to cover the hinge slots in the front shroud.

That is the text without the whole service manual pictures.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have whirlpool model 9450 dryer. Is it possible to change the door opening from hinged on the right side to hinged on the left side?


It advertises the door as being reversible. Sorry I'm not sure how to accomplish this, but maybe check for an online installation manual?

The hinge of the washing machine has broken - Creda W100FW


The door hinge block has fallen inside the front of the washer.To retieve it, tilt the washer back, and you should find it at the left hand side.
Remove all screws securing 2 parts of door together, prise apart with a screwdriver or similar, and the door will come apart.
You can now access the hinge and all other partsd inside the door.
Trust this helps.
Thankyou.

Need to replace my Maytag the door is reverseable. Who makes those now?


The doors are reversabe they go from left hand open to right hand open. Just reverse the hinges, put the door fillers ( triangle shape go toward the front. Remove the plug put it in the other sidel. Now take the metal door strke and put it on the other side, Then take the filler from on side and put it on the other side. Takes 10 to 15 minutes to make the change.

No need to purchase another door!
