washing machine cannot be inserted from the Door of Landry room the difference is 4 inch after removing the door . The question :how complicated to expand temporarly the door opener (like remove part of wall)or even removing the trims as I am not sure even removing the trim is enough is there any risk to do that , please advice
Please note: I don't like to replace the machine to smaller one or change here location

First try removing the trim on both sides of the door. You dont want to cut the walls. If it doesnt fit after removing the trim buy a smaller machine. Good luck

Welcome to the forums.

If removing the trim and casing isn't enough it will almost impossible to remove the door framing without opening the wall up.

Hi, yes there is a stud by the door. If you open the wall I would suggest that you install a larger door.
This is a big job if you never done something like this.
Now for the question we all want to ask is "How did you get the washing machine in there?"
Good Luck Woodbutcher

WB.... the new (bigger) washer is not in there yet. He doesn't want to replace the bigger unit, that is waiting to go in, with a smaller unit that will fit in the doorway.

Makes no since to me to go to all that work removing the whole door and not just reframe the opening for a larger door.
Biggest issue will be dealing with how to fix the flooring.
Your not going to gain 4" by just removing the jambs.

Joe opined:

And I've been wondering just how small is the door? Is this a bathroom with a 24" door? If so, like Joe suggested, time to install a new wider door.


I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
