A bit difficult to do. If yo remove the back panel and look at the exhaust duct to determine if you can swing it 90 degrees to the other side?? It may be possible but you'll have to look. Then switch it to the other side. Then of course you will need to cut a hole for it to exit the machine. That's the deal to get it out the other side.

Heat will start for a few minutes then stop and dryer will continue to spin with cold air.

You must have a blockage in your vent line between back of dryer to the outside or a kinked vent hose or a blockage in your blower wheel cover.

your lint filter is on top so unplug it,remove the lint filter and the two screws on top in front of the filter,get a screw driver,stick in into the space where the top and front meet around two iches from each corner and lift up,pop the top up,on the right side you'll see the door switch harness,get a small screw driver,stick into the harness to separate it,pull it apart and then look at the right and left side a few inches down and you'll see a 5/16 inch screw one on each side,remove them and pull up on the front panel,,pull up first on right side then left reach in on the right side,stick your head inside the drum and lift the drum with right shoulder,pull up on the belt pulley and remove the belt,first look at how the belt connects to the motor so when you reinstall it you know how it lift the top and pull the drum.there's a kit that comes with the belt rollers and new pulley,change out these parts and your noise should be gone,also while you're in there vac up all the lint,put the dryer back together but don't reinstall the two screws on top,pull out the dryer and remove the vent line and back wall,on the left side remove the four screws that hold the metal duct in place,clean out the duct and vac up any lint,put that back together and the two screws on top,if the vent line is long,i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,if you clean out the dryer once a year and the vent line you'll hardly have any problems with this dryer,.watch this video and good luck,if you need any other help with any appliance let me know and hopefully we can get it done.

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 and under the parts direct tab enter your model number aka 000.00000, and search out the kit.

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: If you had to you could put this 90 degrees, and continue it out with retangular metal duct.

Is it possible to re-configure the rear vent on a Bosch dryer

Most dryers have that option but not on the left side. You will need to cut a hole in the left side dryer housing. Then you will need to dis-assemble the back panel of the dryer and disconnect the vent pipe connection inside the dryer. Then run the moisture vent into the dryer housing from the left side opening and connect it to the venting system inside the dryer. You might not be able to put the opening in the same spot as the right side so you should do a visual inspection inside the dryer before making the opening to verify nothing is in the way.

How do i side vent my maytag atlantis electric dryer?

Attached is a link to a diagram of your dryer.

You would have to remove the back panel. Remove the existing vent pipe, install a 90 deg elbow of the same size diameter. Then cut a hole in the right or left side of the dryer cabinet that would line up with the new elbow.
Check the side cabnet of your dryer, it appears on the diagram that there may be a 4" knock out for a side exit vent.
Good luck, let me know.

I have a venting question for a new Whirlpool 9550 steam dryer

The vent must remain the same diameter all the way out. Previously installed vents do not often line up well. To get the dryer closest to the wall the bottom method sounds like the best shot. I would build a frame from 2x6s so you can design it exactly to your purpose. A purchased pedestal will still have some limitations.
