Most washing machine doors are hinged on the left. The door closes into a catch on the right. Some people find they need the door to open on the other side. The only washing machines I’m aware of that have 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.
The vast majority of washing machines have left hinged doors. They cannot be changed around. I can’t think of a logical reason why they are hinged like that but they are. If you know of any others please add a comment to this article. Check the comments below for further discussion.
