Not all dryers have the facility to vent out of the side, if they can , you should see a knockout panel or cover at the side, remove this and fit vent to side.
It is important that you blank off the outlet where the hose was fitted originally.
Plz rate my answer.
Thanks..

Moved dryer to a new home. Dryer vent comes out of the middle of the dryer. New home vent is next to the outside wall so i have a bend off the dryer vent and then a bent to the out side vent, Can you...


Some Kenmore dryers have a knockout at the back, lower corner that can be "knocked out". If you have one of these it can be vented out through the side. If the knockout is there, a kit is available for the venting. Just go to www.sears.com and under the parts direct tab enter your model number aka 000.00000, and search out the kit.

4 way dryer venting


No its very easy to do, I assume it is an Electric Model.

Buy the kit if you want, it will have instructions!

Most dryers have a circle on the side that just needs to pop out, however its not that easy! it may take a slight tap or two

If your really good, go to your local Hardware store and buy the metal 4 inch flex venting, and do it yourself. Unplug dryer, remove front panel, and create your own vent the direction you want it, Use a really good duct tape, and seal the seams. make sure the vent doesnt touch anything else, :" Heater, wires, etc.

Reassemble and use the venting, I would recommend cleaning the dryer venting at least once a year.

Maytag Dryer


You can order a side vent kit for it or make one yourself. The kit has a couple of extensions and an elbow that will turn the exhaust out the knock out on the side. You can pick up everything you need at the hardware store but the kit has precut pieces and installation instructions. If it is not a big inconvienience to wait for it, I would recommend you order the kit through a maytag dealer or sears. That way you have the right pieces and instructions to follow.
