    If there is a side panel pop-out it can. You will also need an elbow adapter to reroute the vent line behind the dryer, to turn towards the side of the dryer. Most dryers have an option to exhaust from the back or the side.

Keep in mind, a new dryer at peak performance is only able to exhaust air in a "STRAIGHT" line 90 feet away. The more bends you add to the exhaust that are unnecassary, will decrease the performance of your dryer.

Please don't forget to rate "jsrock516's" solution, His is perfectly on point.

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.

Thankyou Guru. I couldn't find a vent hose on the back. Ive unscrewed the bottom panel and there is a coil which looks like a heater, and a black fan type thing, but no vent hose. When I unscrewed the...

Hi, Your very welcome but there should be a round 4 inch metal vent hole with either a metal pipe or a spiral tube going into the wall to the outside. Are you looking on the front or the back? if your looking on the back that coil should be the heater and the black fan is the blower which is what moves the air across the clothes. when you turn the dryer on you should either feel the air blowing into the room through the hole if there is no vent tube on it or see the vent tube on the bottom either on the back or side.

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.

How do I change the rear vent outlet on a Kenmore dryer to the left side?

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.

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!!
