Putting washer and dryer criss cross from connections.

Is it okay to place a washer and dry opposite of where the connections are (The dryer is electric)?

I purchased a new washer and dryer set. Samsung WF218ANW and DV218AEW.
I would love for the doors to open out with the openings next to one another so I can easily move the laundry from the washer to the dryer. (That is Washer on Left, Dryer on Right) as that is how the doors are.
Here's the issue though. My washer connections are on the right and my dryer plug/vent are on the left on the wall in the laundry room.
I purchased 'bust proof' metal hoses for the new washer and a reinforced aluminum dryer vent for the dryer, and I want to know if I can 'cross' these, that is run the hoses from the right side of the wall to the left side and of course the dryer from right side of wall to vent connection on left side.
Note: its all on one wall : X Y
X: Dryer vent/plug
Y: Washer hoses and drain
But I want
Y X now due to the doors
Also, I have looked at 'swapping' the doors but I can't find anything in either manuals.
