    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.

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."

How to replace gas vent on huaqvarna 51 chainsaw

The fuel tank vent is located on the right side of the fuel
tank next to the right rear rubber element. With the fuel
tank empty and the fuel hose disconnected at the
carburetor, remove the two rear rubber elements. Separate the rear of the crankcase and the fuel tank enough to expose the fuel tank vent. Working through the fuel filler opening, grasp the fuel tank vent tube with a pair of needle nose pliers. Push the vent out the other side.
For access to the right side rubber elements, first remove the chain brake cover, bar, chain, chain catcher and cover plate.
For access to the left side rubber elements, remove the starter housing.

Install the fuel tank vent using a drift the same diameter
as the vent tube. The remainder of assembly is the
reverse of disassembly.

Solution for 1999 chevy cavalier code p0440

There has been a service bulletin isued for that code. I have run into this before, also the wires comming out of the connector. That would bethe first thing to check. Here is what the bulletin states. Emissions - SES Lamp ON/DTC P0440 (EVAP) SetNotesFile In Section: 06 - Engine/Propulsion SystemBulletin No.: 02-06-04-044Date: August, 2002TECHNICALSubject: Service Engine Soon (SES) Light Illuminated, DTC P0440 Set (Replace Fuel Tank Evaporative Emissions Control System (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Harness) Models: 2000-2002 Chevrolet Cavalier2000-2002 Pontiac Sunfire ConditionSome customers may comment that the SES light is/was illuminated.A technician may find DTC P0440 is stored in the PCM.CauseThe EVAP solenoid harness may be misrouted around the rear antilock brake (ABS) wire harness causing a chaff/damage to the EVAP vent solenoid harness, setting DTC P0440.CorrectionFollow the service procedure below to diagnose and correct this condition.1. Install a Tech 2 scan tool and select the appropriate vehicle. Verify that a DTC P0440 is stored in the PCM. 2. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information (SI Document ID # XXXXX).


Locate and inspect the EVAP vent solenoid harness (3) routing. The harness may be routed below the ABS wiring harness (4) at the right rear corner of the fuel tank, causing stress on the EVAP solenoid harness (3).


4.Disconnect the EVAP vent solenoid harness (3) from the EVAP vent solenoid (2) and connector C313 (1). Discard the EVAP vent solenoid harness (3).

5.Connect the new EVAP vent solenoid harness (3), P/N 22687059, to the EVAP vent solenoid (2), route the harness above the rear ABS harness (4) and connect the EVAP vent solenoid harness (3) to connector C313 (1).

6.Lower the vehicle.

7.Clear the DTC's with the Tech 2 scan tool.

If all of the wires are good you will want to check for any leaks in the evap system.

Hope helps.

I'm leaking transmission oil but I don't know from where . The oil is on the left side down by the skid plate

Right behind the cylinder, on the top of the right center case half is a hose. The hose is to vent the buildup of pressure from piston blow-by into the gearbox. The vent hose is routed to the rear of the gearbox and the oil is probably winding up on the skid plate. Does the engine smoke a bit? It sounds like it's time to bore the cylinder and install a new piston and rings.

Is it possible to re-configure the rear vent on a Bosch dryer

Most dryers have that option but not on the left side. You will need to cut a hole in the left side dryer housing. Then you will need to dis-assemble the back panel of the dryer and disconnect the vent pipe connection inside the dryer. Then run the moisture vent into the dryer housing from the left side opening and connect it to the venting system inside the dryer. You might not be able to put the opening in the same spot as the right side so you should do a visual inspection inside the dryer before making the opening to verify nothing is in the way.

Model 87577800 sock went thru the lint vent

The model number you have listed has the dryer vent on top of the dryer. Small items commonly fall down into the vent chute on these dryers. Articles can easily be retrieved by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present inside a dryer even when it is turned off.

2. Remove the lint screen and remove the two screws that connect the vent chute to the top panel.

3. Turn the dryer around so you can access the rear, and remove the exhaust vent hose.

4. Locate and loosen all the screws from the perimeter of the dryer back panel.

5. Remove the back panel of the dryer.

The air blower assembly and dryer vent chute are located on the left hand side (as viewed from the rear of the dryer). Remove the screws that hold the vent chute in place and you will be able to access anything that has fallen into it.

NOTE: Anything left in the vent can eventually get caught in the blower fan. So, it is important to retrieve anything caught in this area to prevent damage to the fan and to ensure the dryer ventilates properly.

If you have any questions about these procedures, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

It could possibly be your rear brakes hanging up (not releasing). Not alot to go on, but to check the brakes wouldn't be too hard, and I'd compare both sides, to see if the right is wearing quicker than the left. That could indicate a brake problem. It also could be the brake wear indicator on that wheel, which when the brakes wear to a point that they will soon need to be replaced, the wear indicator makes contact w/ the drum/rotor, as a warning to have them checked. They can make quite a loud annoying sound like u describe. .So have the brakes on that wheel checked, I think that is your problem. countrycurt0
