    I'd like to move the vent on the Whirlpool Duet dryer (model # YGEW9250PWG) from the rear to the side.The manual accompanying the appliance doesn't explain how to move the vent but
    just says to call the dealer for service. Can anyone comment on the
    complexity of the procedure?

    The instructions in the manual do not tell you how to install the side mount.

    yeah, i called the seller who told me to call whirlpool...whirpool told me to call the seller...who then told me to call whirpool back....who then told me to "find someone in the yellow pages who can help" ... their techs will not move it...only fix it if it breaks....guess once the check is cashed you become invisible to whirlpool, good luck!!!

Dear sbrown183,
Welcome to fixya,

You asked for the procedure to re-route the vent from the rear to the left side.

Here below are the instruction you requested for venting both the rear and or the sides.
If you follow these manufactures directions and you will be fine

You will find them on pages 11, 12 and 13.

Let me know how you do.

Please remember to leave a solved rating!

Thanks for using fixya

Hmm...I've read the manual, you directed the person to instructions which basically say,
Step 1: pick up telephone
Step 2: call whirlpool dealer
Step 3: shedule dealer to convert vent option


"Optional exhaust installations
This dryer can be converted to exhaust out the right side, left
side, or through the bottom. Contact your local dealer to have the
dryer converted."

Softtronic t8303 the machine stops when drying clothes after about 1 minute and the alarm goes off until the machine is shut down. When i try to start the machine with no clothes in, it keeps going till...

One possibility could be that you have a clogged LINT DUCT VENT to the outside.

It sounds like the damp sensor is working fine as when your unit senses no moisture, it shuts off. Soooooo, if the LINT DUCT VENT is partially clogged somewhere between the dryer tub and the outside of the house, then the sensor is sensing too much heat because the air flow is limited terribly somewhere. Take your entire LINT DUCT TUBING and clean it completely. Also, make sure you do not have any loops or droops in the whole ducting route. Make sure the lint duct tubing is not having to blow uphill anywhere in its route to the outside of the house. Dryers can not blow damp lint up hill very well and when folks try to make a dryer do this, the dryer will try, but damp lint will collect in a low spot, or in a hose route that has too many turns in it to the outside. Make the route of the hose LEVEL and even downward if possible. If it is a good idea to vent the hose out the side of the dryer, (to reduce turns, - remember they are death in a dryer) if possilbe. Not all dryers allow this. Look in your users manual for any suggestions.

We have a gas dryer whipool duet . It dry the towel but it still litle damp and the flame it good , no vent hook up , and it run for 70 minute cycle ,. Any idea why that happen . Please hepl

If you are not venting the moisture from the towels away from the rear of the dryer that could be causing your problem. If the dryer is up against the wall try either moving it away from the wall or hooking a vent hose to the discharge and at least pulling the other end of the host around to the side of the dryer. The dryer pulls air into it self from the rear and bottom of the dryer so it could be pulling the moisture from the towels right back into the dryer making it take longer to dry. Hope that helps

I have a Whirlpool Calypso gas dryer, vented in the back. Can the venting be changed to vent out the side?

some dryers have a round "knockout" on either side which would allow for different venting options. You also need to check the ducting inside the machine to determine if it can be re routed without causing a sharp bend or kink that would cause over heating and lower efficiency.

Can exhaust vent come out of the side of the dryer?

It has to come out of the hole made for the exhaust hose to connect to. After that it can be routed anywhere that's not in the way of the operation of the dryer and to the outside.

How do I route a new belt?

From the rear of the dryer the back of the belt has to be on the right side of the idler pulley, then around the motor pulley. If the back of the belt is against the left side of the pulley looking from the rear the belt will be too long, not enough tension.

Can't get belt on dryer properly

The routing for the belt should be on a diagram somewhere inside the dryer. It sounds like the belt is not properly routed around the idler/tensioner pulley -- this is a very tricky routing -- without a diagram, it's a bunch of trial and error. Can you find the routing diagram?
