Are you sure your door is reversible?

Most dryer doors are, However if you have a window? it may not be reversible?

I would suggest taking the door completely apart, remembering how it came apart and then flipping it as needed and reinstalling everything. You should not have to drill any holes? For instance the Speed Queen dryer door will have the screws on the bottom now instead of the top.

Read your owner manual and installation manual, if you dont have those look on line most Manufactures have manuals on line for down load no charge.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE DIRECTON THE DOOR SWINGS?


Remove bolts that hold both doors, make sure to remember order, bolts for doors should be universal, but hinges need to go in same place just turned around. On the other side of fridge you need to remove plugs where bolts from otherside go. Install as reverse of removal, leave bolts loose to leave for adjustment. Install refrigerator door before freezer. Then move handles, small covers hide the screws on face of doors others should be exposed.

Trying to reverse door swing on Samsung washer WF405ATPASU/AA


Tony, this is a simple procedure and you just need a medium sized phillips head screwdriver. Start by opening the door and removing the two phillips screws that attach the hinge to the machine. Remove the door by lifting up and out. Next, remove the two screws that that you will now see (previously hidden under the door hinge that you just removed). Now, go to the opposite side and remove the two screws that hold the door latch and pull out the plastic latch insert. Also, remove the two screws located (about 4 inches) above and below the latch insert. Now simply reverse the process by securing the plastic latch on the left side along with the two screws (top and bottom). Before securing the door on the right side, lay it down and remove the screw that is used to hang the door (within a slotted hole on the machine) and move it to the top of the hinge (you will see a hole for it). Now simply hang the door on the right side of the machine, and firmly secure it with the remaining two screws. Your door should move freely and latch securely.

Want to switch the side the door opens on my lg dryer


The directions for reversing the door can be found on page 13 and 14, with pictures of the operation. Open the door to reverse. Check the 10 screws that need to be removed (6 on the left, 4 on the right). Remove 4 dummy screws with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws from, and disassemble, the latch. Hold on to the hinge while removing 4 screws from the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Remove the door from the cabinet cover. Move the door to the left side and insert a hinge into a hinge hole. Hold on to the hinge while screwing down the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Insert the latch to the right side and install the screws. Screw down the 4 dummy screws to the right side. Check that the door closes and latches properly.

Need part number for left and right hinge clip(s).


You just swop the bottom and top hinges,remove the top hinge and install on other side on bottom, do reverse with bottom hinge ,if there is provision for the hinges to be swoped by means of threaded holes on the refrigerator and holes on the otherside of the door (left or right). Before you start see if its possible. Good luck,

Switch door to open other way


Start at the top hinge remove it. Yank the top door off. Remove the middle hinge and lift off the bottom door. Move the base hinge over to the other side.set the bottom door on it. Install the middle hinge then set the top door. Note: If the doors are reverseable their will be plastic covers over the holes on the other side. Be sure to put them covers in the side you took the door off in case yall ever want to reverse em again and for cosmetic reasons and such. If you have water and ice in the door get a pro to do it for you

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

Changing the opening side of the door


You will need to reverse the hinges, it should be the top for the freezer, and the one in the middle support, both the freezer and the large door, you will not only move this to the other side but you may have to turn it over, and the bottom hinge just move it to the other side. You will need to start with the large door, because the hinge support the bottom and top door, the bottom first, next the middle hinge, place the freezer door on the middle hinge and the top hinge to sesure the freezer door, move the handles, the holes for the screws will be on the other side with a little cover that you will have to remove just have to pull them out.

Washer door opens with hinges on the left


Don't you think it would really boost sales if you did make a washer that the front loader door could open left to right . For homes that have very limited laundry room. and no way to switch.

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.
