Question about Dryers
You need to take the dryer apart to do that. You would have to reroute the vent internally to go to the back of the dryer. http://parts.sears.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDG6800AWW/3048/0151200/W0703640/00001
It's piece number 17. You have to get started by taking the screws out of the left and right side of the door hinge. Then open the door and pull the front panel forward. There are two 5/16 on the bottom of this model you'll have to remove, I'm pretty sure, too.

you dont need a kit, get under ther with an elbow and some solid vent tubes, a little foil tape and your in, should be a prefforated knock-out where it will vent through side,

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.

There is a kit that you will need and it comes with instructions. You need the model of the dryer and you can find it at
Enter the model number of your dryer and look for it in the diagram. You should be able to go where you bought it also. Good luck.
