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..

    I would have liked to know if I need to remove the back of the dryer to do this, or if removing the knockout plate alone is enough. we'll see...

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!

Kenmore series 90 plus dryer


LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers.
Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed, kinked or clogged with lint. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers or this website http://www.linteater.com/.
