Dryers - Door Swing

GE and Hotpoint top load and front load matching dryers have a 180 degree right hand door swing (hinges on the right), though most models have reversible doors.Reversible Door:

  • Check the product specifications for the model to determine whether the doors are reversible. No additional hardware or kits are needed to reverse the doors.
  •  To reverse the door swing, consult the Installation Instructions for your dryer. Download a copy of the Installation Instructions.
  • Dryers with pocket handles will have a pocket (to place your hand to pull open) located at the top and bottom of the dryer door. This allows for a pocket to be located at the top of the door no matter which way the door swings.
