Question about Dryers
We have an old coin-op gas dryer in the basement of our apartment building. We went to replace it with a GE DCCB330EG, which the spec sheet shows is 25-1/4 inches deep. It showed up, and has a panel (galvanized steel, not painted) at the back that is almost 2 inches beyond the 25-1/4 inch spec for the depth. In other words, the enamel parts total 25-1/4 inches, and this is another 2 inches beyond -- too wide to get through the doorway and down the (also narrow) stair case.
The delivery guy wasn't willing to take the back panel off and the dryer went back. I wondered if we tried again, do you know exactly what is under that panel? Does anything protrude past the panel once it's been removed? Does it have any electrical or mechanical connections to the dryer or is it merely insulation, etc?
If you have any other suggestions, please advise. The top of the staircase is 26 inches wide, perhaps 26-1/2.
Remove any doors on the way down.Sounds like an older house that forgot progress (we make things bigger now),you could take off the exhaust vent also.
Hope this helped.
