Discovering how to reverse the doors on your washer and dryer is exhilarating. It's like discovering that sometimes, just sometimes, crossing the streams can be a good thing! The washer door was carefully orientationless with respect to opening. You simply pull the top of the door lid opposite the hinges. The dryer was only slightly trickier...it has a handle on the front face opposite the hinge side, so the outside must rotate half-way; the inside, on the other hand, has a gasket shaped to the door opening. It must not rotate. Luckily, with four screws, the outside of the door and the inside can be granted previously unavailable degrees of freedom with respect to one another.
So, anyway, if any of you have been suffering because your washer or dryer doors just aren't opening the right way, take a very careful look at the doors, openings, and hinges. You might be surprised at what you find.
