My washing machine just gave out after about 12 years of service. I looked at Best Buy, Sears, and Menards. All the front loaders had doors that opened to the left. My house, my daughter’s house, my girlfriend’s house all have laundry spaces plumbed for washers to the right of the dryer, therefore need a right opening door. My old unit had a reversible door. The new ones don’t. Best Buy said they could order one special, at more than twice the cost. After many hours on line, I found one economical washer with a right opening door. That is the one I ordered.
