How to Turn a Drying Door
Folding a dryer door is a bit easier than a washing machine door. Thus, most dryers with glass front doors can be turned around in the market. The process is even easier if you have a solid metal door.
- Remove the two screws from the hinge that connects the door to the dryer.
- Remove the door and place it in a shallow working area. The floor is always a good choice.
- Remove the screws from the outer case and pull the case apart.
- Pull the glass shell loose (the black thing in the GIF below) and turn it 180 degrees.
- Put the case back in its place.
- Remove the hinge from the inside of the door by removing the screws.
- Place the hinge on the opposite side of the door and tighten the screws with your fingers in the holes.
- Tighten the screws with a screwdriver.
- Replace the outer case, tighten the screws with your fingers, and tighten the screws with a screwdriver.
- Remove the rubber screws from the dryer with the new latch using a flat-head screwdriver.
- Move it to the other side and place it.
- If your dryer has only an empty square hole on the other side and no latch, remove the latch by levering it out of the hole with a flat-head screwdriver. It should just jump out and jump into the new hole.
Note: If your dryer door does not have a window, you can jump from step one to steps 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12 in this order.
Once you're done, give your fridge, washing machine or door a boost. If it seems a bit shaky, tighten the hinge screws a little more. Also, close the door of the washer and dryer and turn it on for a few seconds. If the device does not turn on, you may need to push the latch out and back into the hole.
If everything seems fine, you're done!
