Here is a diagram of that unit. It shows a left and a right side punch-out for venting. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: CANT FIND MODEL OR SERIAL NUMBER ON DRYER

There should be a nameplate along the door opening. This is normally where Whirpool puts their information. Just open the door and look along the door or door frame opening. The nameplate data can also be located along the back of the operator console on some models. Let me know if you still can't find it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer model number lgr7648kq1 won't get

Sounds like one of the cavity switches is bad. Open back of dryer, you will see wires that attach to little clip next to each other. Try jumping wire from one side to the other, do one switch at a time and try dryer to see if heats, if you get heat replace that switch. These switches burn out if dryer gets to hot, usually from to much lint in duct work. Also vacuum out duct work in wall and on back of dryer.

SOURCE: I have a venting question for a new Whirlpool 9550 steam dryer

The vent must remain the same diameter all the way out. Previously installed vents do not often line up well. To get the dryer closest to the wall the bottom method sounds like the best shot. I would build a frame from 2x6s so you can design it exactly to your purpose. A purchased pedestal will still have some limitations.

SOURCE: Install side vent for GE dryer

Unlike some other dryers that have knockouts on the side and allows the vent to come out the side I don't believe this one does. The air duct has the rear discharge outlet built right into it. Since it sounds like you don't have enough room to put a 90 degree elbow on the back of the machine, which would move the dryer out about 6 in, you might try one of those square duct dryer fittings. See link for example:
http://www.northlineexpress.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=5CO-89638&source=froogle&kw=5CO-89638. If you had to you could put this 90 degrees, and continue it out with retangular metal duct.

Help - My Bedroom Doesn't Have a Closet for Hanging Clothes



Most bedrooms come with built in furniture closets for hanging clothes. But sometimes you come across apartments that don't have any facilities.
Here are some suggestions for what to do if you bedroom is lacking in a hanging space.

1. Check out some of the cheaper furniture stores. You might find that you can pick up a closet for a lot less money than you realized.

2. Buy a moveable fold-up closet. You can get ones made of canvas or plastic that can be folded up and packed away when you don't need them. They're not as stable as wooden closets but make a great temporary solution.

3. Use a shower rail or pole that you can attach to 2 sides of a wall. This can provide a secure hanging space without needing a big purchase.

How can i replace the back plate of my dryer with a flat one will not fit in space for hook up


Not likely such a thing. The funny shape probably has something to do with the air passages.

I have a Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner, model CPRD12XC7, 12,000 BTU that has 2 hoses off the back and is made to be vented thru a window. I want to install it in a closet with no windows. Can I...


Mark, the two hoses serve different functions (Fresh Air Intake & Hot Air Exhaust). Therefore, they would have to remain separate. Also, Haier does not recommend extending the length of the hoses, to accommodate a specific change in installation. And yes, they can be vented through a wall to the outside. But, you would need to use something similar to a clothes dryer vent termination on the outside. Most exterior dryer vent terminations have insect screening and a flap door that opens when air from the dryer pushes it open. This would be fine for the exhaust hose, but not the Air Intake Hose. I guess if you could carefully remove the flap door. it could be used on the Air Intake hose. Also, keep in mind that the unit requires a minimum of one foot air space clearance off the back of the unit, for proper air circulation around the unit. If clothes will be hanging in this closet, that may present an air circulation issue.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

Convett my whirlpool gas dryer to vent from the side


Whirlpool makes a kit for this, however since you have a gas dryer, you will not be able to vent out the side the gas heater is on.

Take the front panel off and look for the gas valve it should be on the left side, if you need to vent out on the left side you will not be able too.
