Reverse the dryer's door
Sometimes it's just more convenient to get your dryer's door to open the other way instead. Unlike a washing machine, your dryer will totally swing that way. These steps will show you how to reverse your dryer door.
Reverse the dryer door
Note: A Phillips head screwdriver is required to complete this procedure.
To reverse the dryer door, perform the following steps:
Open the dryer door, remove the 4 screws around the latch on the door frame, and then remove the door latch.
Remove the 2 large screws on the door hinge and then lift up slightly on the door to disengage the door guide screw from the door guide slot.
Unscrew the guide screw that is on the door hinge and install it in the adjacent position on the hinge.
Note: When installing the guide screw in its new location, tighten it until snug. Do not overtighten it.
Remove the two screws along the inside edge of the door latch opening and insert them into the inside edge of the opposite door latch opening.
Hang the door by aligning and inserting the guide screw into the guide slot, then re-install the two large screws (from step 2) into the hinge.
Insert the door latch into the door latch opening with the rounded end pointing up and re-install the 4 screws (from step 1) into the 4 holes on the door frame. Two will go into the latch, and two will go into the frame.
And that's a wrap! The door reversal is complete. No more banging that dryer door into the wall.
