There are knock out panels on both sides of the dryer. knock out the one you want to use with a hammer and flat head screw driver or chisel/ you will then have to remove the back and disconnect the vent going out of the back of the machine and reinstall a new hose or pipe on the outlet where you removed the vent and run it through your new hole to the outside vent.

My dryer, model Mdg6800aww, currently vents to the side but I need to change it to the back but the installation and user manuals do not say how to do it. Any ideas?

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.

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.

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.

Wife ran for 14 min w/out anything in it changed fuse no luck

You need to change the cavity thermostat. The unit got too hot and blew the cavity thermostat. If this is a vent-a-hood model, it will be up under the vent housing at the top (must drop microwave to change) and if built-in, it will be on the left side under the outer cover. Just remove the screws from the back and sides and right along the edge along the bottom sides. Will have 2 wires going to it from each side. Just replace thermostat and reattach molex plugs. Then retest. Should be fine after that.

I need to change vent location from rear to side. Should I remove the back of dryer for access? If not how best do I change the vent location? I have purchased 4'' duct pipe + elbow from hardware store.

Turn off the power. You will have to remove the top panel. Remove the front panel. Remove the belt. Remove the drum. This will give you access to the location for side venting.

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.

you would need to "punch out the metal" , youl also need to remove the fron tof the unit(2 screws approx 3-4 inches down form inner panel, holding front panel on, ( youll need to remove the top of the dryer( a few screws across the back of unit.) andthen disconnect the dryer belt(easiest acess through a small acess panel on lower rear of unit, pull the dryer drum out and youl see the existing ve, just a matter of attaching a 90degree elbow and running vent out the side instead of out the back. DISCONNECT POWER TO UNIT FIRST!!!!!!!!!!
