Hi Eleanor,
Without a specific model number I can only give general information, but, Kenmore fridges are all about the same, so here we go. Take a close look at your unit. You should observe several small plugs inserted on the side of the doors that don't have the hinges currently mounted. These inserts cover threaded holes that are used to mount the hardware for the hinges. If your fridge has two doors one above the other. remove the top hinge hardware, lift the door up off of the bottom hinge pin. then remove the bottom hardware on the top door. Typically the mounting screws are either phillips head or 1/4" hex head machine screws. You should now see that there is now a threaded hole in the same position on that side as the plug in caps on the other side. remove the caps from the one side and insert them in their respective holes on the other side. the door hinges will attach to the now exposed holes on the side that the plugs were removed from. But not yet. First remove the top hinge hardware on the bottom door, lift the bottom door off of the bottom hinge, and then remove the bottom door hardware relocating the bottom hardware to the other side. Install the bottom door onto the hinge pin of the bottom door hinge. Close the door then install the top hinge on the bottom door. Next install the bottom hinge and hardware for the top door, set the top door on the installed hinge, close the door add install the top door top hinge and hardware next. Same with the door handles. All of this info applies to the doors and the fridge itself.

Can the door swing be changed?


Yes the door can be changed to open from the opposite side, there are removal plugs that need to be removed from the opposite side and just change all the hardware from one side to the other, change the middle hinge first and put on the bottom door first, after its is mounted you can put the bottom part of the top door on the hinge and last the top hinge, and just make a few minor adjustments.

Can you change the way the door opens on the neptune washer


Yes you can reverse the door on your washer.
Open the door, remove the screw in the middle of both hinges, (carefull not to drop them inside). Lift the door straight up and "wiggle" the door hinge straight out of the slot.
On the opposite side of the opening you will find two inserts, remove them and install them into the slots you removed the door from. Now the fun part... remove the hinges from your door side.
Make sure you note how they attach, now intall them on the other side of the door,EXACTLY, the way they were first installed. Do one at at time. After you have them on the other side and you put the other screws back in the side you removed the hinge from, lift the door and slide the hinge into the bottom and top slots of the washer opening. Secure the hinge with screws removed in the beginning making sure the door is closing properly and locking.

Can you switch the side the doors open and close.


sorry but the washer can not be changed. its strike has a lock and can not be reversed. the dryer can be changed, but the best thing to do is move the units and get some longer hoses for the washer.
hopefully you can switch the position of the units, but if not then you will be doing the laundry dance every time you do wash.
