There are also videos of repairing similar bearing types. All parts come with installation instructionsand are ready to ship. It is an easy inexpensive fix.

How to change the swing of the door


Unfortunately, these doors aren't manufactured to be reversible. The matching dryers for these washers, however, are able to be swapped from side to side. What I can suggest is swap the actual positions of the washer and dryer. This is of course possible if you have long enough water hoses, power cords, dryer vent, and the drain line will reach.

I want to change the door around to match the


Unfortunately, only some model Dryer doors are able to be changed, not the washer doors. You can find out the Model of your dryer and I can let you know if indeed you dryer door swing can be changed or not. The other solution is to stack the set to not have the doors impede loading and unloading if your models have a stacking kit available for them. I hope this helps! Good luck!

The door on my dryer and washer open the wrong way


On these model you can only reverse the door swing on the dryer but not the washer.
Alternatively, you can switch places with the washer and dryer provided the washer fill and drain hoses are long enough and there is enough room without obstructing the dryer exhaust vent .

If you want to know how to reverse the door swing on the dryer, post your model number and I will try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Washer door opens with hinges on the left


nope sorry but all front load washers are built with a locking system on the door and that makes them impossible to change the door swing.
the only thing you can do is move the washer and dryer position by getting longer hoses and venting so you can have the washer on the left and the dryer on the right.

Whirlpool Ultimate care ii Dryer wont tumble


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt,
Motor,
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

Remove the belt,
Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing,
Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

one of two types. "H" or "J"

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.
