Unplug the cord of the dryer before starting.

Raise top by placing a putty knife between top and front in the seam between the two about 2 inches in from each edge and lifting up at the same time. Raise top to full open position.

Look down inside the open top dryer at each side there will be a screw on each side a few inches down. Leaning against the front remove the two screw and pull the top forward a few inches and raise it from the supports at bottom then swing it aside protecting any wiring.

This will give you access to the underside of the dryer at which point you can remove the vent tube going out the back. Remove the side knockout by hitting the edges of the cutout with a screwdriver until it breaks free. Run a new line from the fan outlet through the new penetration. This tube can be rigid or flexible but must be non-flammable material.

The rear hole does not need to be plugged unless you have pets, mice or children that might get inside. It can be closed with aluminum tape if desired. Give your dryer a thorough cleaning with a vacuum while apart.

Reverse the disassembly process to reassemble the front and top being careful not to disconnect any wiring.

How can i replace the back plate of my dryer with a flat one will not fit in space for hook up

Not likely such a thing. The funny shape probably has something to do with the air passages.

How do I change a vent in the back of a dryer to the bottom?

Most new models have plates that can be removed so that you can vent to any side except the front. The bottom is considered a side. You need to get to the inside of the unit and then move the exhaust hose to the area that you want it to vent to. IT would be helpful if you post the make and model.

Things You'll Need:

* Fuse
* Electrical device
* Lint removal kit

1. Check that you've plugged the dryer in. If the dryer is not receiving any electricity, it will not turn on.
2. Plug another electrical device--such as a radio, iron or hair dryer--into the same outlet. If this item doesn't work when plugged in, it indicates that the problem could be with the electrical outlet or the fuse. Replacing the fuse or moving the circuit breaker switch back into place could solve the problem.
3. Clean the lint from all areas. You'll need to open up the vent and dig any lint out. A lint removal kit can help you get the lint out from all the dryer's nooks and crannies.
4. Replace the thermal fuses. If the thermal fuses--there are two--have blown, your dryer won't work. If the thermal fuse turns out to have been the problem, it suggests there may also be a problem with the venting, so be sure to check the venting tubes.
5. Check for loose wires and hoses in the back of the dryer. Wires should have a tight connection and hoses should not have any kinks.

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.

Dryer will not heat up

remove the plastic tab infront of the machine
start you dryer. look inside the hole to see if the igniter glows.
takes 20-30 secnds.
if it glows then move to the back side of the dryer
remove the screws an check the thermal fuse, for continuity is your tester has the beep sound wich is easier to use for newbies, try it no beep sound, no good.

but if it checks ok then you probaly have bad coils

also since you are looking onthe back make sure that the vent is not restricted, a restricted vent can cause blow back an shut the dryer off if the vent is not clearly open.

good luck!

Heat stopped

It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the machine it just goes back into your clothes.
Good luck!!

1. Open dryer door and remove the phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. 2. Remove three screws at very back, allowing top cover to be moved back about an inch and lifted off. 3. remove screw at top left and top right from front top panel. 4. pull plastic front panel along top edge to release front top panel. (watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.
