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,

Can you change the door direction on a Maytag

Unfortunately, you can only change front loading dryer door directions on some models. Washing machines do not allow this. If the units are stacked i may be easier to switch loads, otherwise the dryer door may be able to have the door swing direction changed but without the Dryer model # I couldn't say for sure.

I want to change the direction the freezer door opens ?

You didn't mention whether this is a combination freezer/refrigerator but I'll assume it is.
If you inspect the areas opposite where the hinges currently are mounted, you should see some small, cosmetic plugs that can be pried out. These are the mounting points for changing the opening direction of the doors.
On most units however, doors would both have to be moved since the center hinge is normally a single piece with hinge pins pointed up as well as down. The hinge mounts should have holes slightly larger than needed so that the closure of the doors can be slightly changed to correct alignment.

My garage door opener moves about 8" then reverses direction before touching the limits

Remove the cover and take a look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. It is most likely stripped. You can purchase a new one at Sears or any good door opener company. It comes with instructions.

Keypad will close door, but not open it!

Try changing the battery and reprogam the keypad. The code remains active for about 30 sec. after it is entered into the keypad which allows you to press enter to change direction of the door
