41780042990 Kemore electric dryer

I need to change the venting from the rear to the left side.  There seems to be a "knock-out" on the left side suggesting it is possible but I do not have the installation instructions.  How do I go about making the change?
Many thanks for your help.

Having done over 100 or more of these dryers over the years, it would be a lot easier to remove the knockout panel on the left side, remove the back access panel by removing the two screws, and then removing the back vent.  Install one end of a flex vent tube onto the place where you removed the back vent from and put the other end through the now open knockout.  Tape vent securely so it doesn't come off and then put the access panel back on.

You would need to "punch out the metal" , youl also need to remove the fron tof the unit(2 screws approx 3-4 inches down form inner panel, holding front panel on, ( youll need to remove the top of the dryer( a few screws across the back of unit.) andthen disconnect the dryer belt(easiest acess through a small acess panel on lower rear of unit, pull the dryer drum out and youl see the existing ve, just a matter of attaching a 90degree elbow and running vent out the side instead of out the back. DISCONNECT POWER TO UNIT FIRST!!!!!!!!!!

Can i change which side the driver vent is located?


Hello Laurie. Your dryer allows rear vent, left or right vent. Here is a diagram which shows you all three http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDE5500AYW/3048/0151200/M0606011/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Just pull the dryer out from the wall to access the rear and sides. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Need to change venting from back to right side


there are knock out panels on both sides of the dryer. knock out the one you want to use with a hammer and flat head screw driver or chisel/ you will then have to remove the back and disconnect the vent going out of the back of the machine and reinstall a new hose or pipe on the outlet where you removed the vent and run it through your new hole to the outside vent.

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.

How do i side vent my maytag atlantis electric dryer?


Attached is a link to a diagram of your dryer.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170653

You would have to remove the back panel. Remove the existing vent pipe, install a 90 deg elbow of the same size diameter. Then cut a hole in the right or left side of the dryer cabinet that would line up with the new elbow.
Check the side cabnet of your dryer, it appears on the diagram that there may be a 4" knock out for a side exit vent.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Dryer will not come on. i changes all my fuses and got a voltage tester and all that is fine, where can i find out about checking any fuses on the dryer itself?


Check the thermal fuse on the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
The thermal fuse is located on the exhaust vent.
It is about 1 and 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. It is white in color.
It is at the left side of the exhaust vent outlet.

sounde like you have a clogged vent line be shure the vent hose is not cinked in any waty that would restrict the air flow. Next turn the dryer on and make sure you and a good flow of air out side the house if the air is not blowing out the vent out side you will need to clean this out or have it cleaned.
