Washing machine door hinged on the right

FAQs Most washing machine doors are hinged on the left. The door closes into a catch on the right. The only washing machines I’m aware of that have long had the door hinge on the right are Miele washing machines Plus the Hotpoint Aqualtis range appears to be hinged on the right. The Aqualtis range is the washer with the very large door incorporating the control panel.

    I have tenants in my flat in London whilst I’m abroad. The washing machine has broken down.
    The door of a replacement HAS to hinge on the right. They all hinge on the left.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Can anyone help with locating a washing machine with the door hinged on the right (London based) new or reconditioned, anything. I have tenants in my flat and the machine has broken down and needs replacing urgently. A model at John Lewis is way over my budget at over a thousand pounds.
    Anything at all at a sensible price with a right handed door!
    Thank you very much. Carol Dacre.

    Is it possible to replace an LG washing machine door to hinge on the right rather than on the left? It is so inconvenient to be opening on the wrong side in a small laundry room area!

    I’ve not heard of a washing machine where you can change the door hinge round. It can’t be done because the door catch needs to operate a door interlock when it closes for safety reasons and there’s no way a manufacturer is going to be able to make it possible.
