What is a Reversible Door?

Some appliances feature a reversible door that allows you to change which way the door swings open. This lets you customize your appliance to fit in the given space. For example, you can streamline your laundry room by making sure the dryer door isn't in the way when you transfer clothes from one machine to the other. Or, you can adjust the way your refrigerator opens so the door doesn't bang against a wall or cabinet. If you're left handed, reversing your appliance door could make it more comfortable to use.

Benefits of a Reversible Door:

  • Allows you to customize your appliances to fit your living space

  • Makes it easier to transfer laundry between machines

  • Prevents your appliance door from getting dinged and scratched
