comment Why don’t we remove door handles and let doors open both ways (inwards, outwards)?
@SonDoLenh Correct, it is an engineering problem, which increases the cost of the door and decreases the security, safety, and sealing capacity of the door, which causes people to choose doors with possibly less-optimal user interfaces to meet their other goals.

comment Why do washing machines have windows?
If the power goes out during a wash cycle, and you aren't home to notice, how wet will you be if the machine is still full of water when you go to put your clothes in the dryer? On a top loading machine, not wet. On a front loading machine with a window, not wet. On a front loading machine with no window? Wet.
