If it's designed to change, there will be metal plate on the side that you remove and place over the back outlet (remove vent hose), then move the vent hose to the side and hook it up.

How do i change the high limit thermostat on a kenmore dryer # 72822


Unplug the dryer from the electrical outlet. Slide the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the dryer vent from the back of the dryer. Loosen the retaining screw on the clamp connecting the vent to the dryer's exhaust port and slide the vent off of the port.
Remove the hex nuts holding the dryer's rear panel in place and slide the rear panel off to the side of the dryer. Locate the high-limit thermostat on the heating element housing on the right side of the dryer. The oval-shaped thermostat can be found a few inches from the bottom of the heating element housing.
Unplug the two thermostat wires by sliding them off of the thermostat's contact posts. Slide the old thermostat out of the socket on the heating element housing.

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.

I have a Kenmore Series 600 electric dryer and it takes forever to dry clothes. Over an hour for a regular load. There is no way this can be right. Is this a common problem with this model.


This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working properly. Ensure you are not running the dryer in a closed room which would starve the dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.

If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)

Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

Change dryer vent from side to rear


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..
