How to change output vent from side to bottom on my Fisher paykel de05-us2 dryer


It should be able to be accomplished by using an adjustable 90 degree elbow you can buy at a local HomeDepot or Lowes. The elbow should be 4" four piece adjustable ell. The radius of the ell should match perfectly with the knockout on the bottom when slipped over the discharge opening of the dryer.

Keep getting warning "check exhaust" on a new gas dryer. All exhaust is clear. What's going on?


The CHECK VENT duct blockage sensing system detects and alerts you to blockages in the duct work that reduce exhaust flow from the dryer. This light does not indicate any problems with your dryer. If this light blinks, it indicates that your home's exhaust system/duct work has a serious restriction

Every time the dryer is turned on, the CHECK FILTER LIGHT WILL BLINK, as a reminder to make sure the filter is clean. Always make sure the lint filter is clean before starting a new load; a clogged lint filter will increase drying times.

The Kenmore Elite dryer has a sensor that detects poor exhaust venting, and when it does, a light flashes on the control panel. This warning light does not include a mechanism to stop gas flow, but if it is allowed to flash for an extended period, poor venting may cause the dryer to overheat. As a result, a fuse might blow and disable the gas valve or ignitor. You can prevent this by diagnosing the reason for the flashing indicator light as soon as possible.

In many cases, LINT has built up somewhere in the exhaust pipes.

Check under the lint filter. Pull it out,look inside the slot it fits in, and clear all lint from this area.

Is it possible you have used the WRONG VENT MATERIAL?
Check your vent to make sure it is 4 inch rigid or semi-rigid metal ducting. If your venting is plastic or flexible foil, replace it before using the dryer.

Check your vent hood outside. You may have a restricted or damaged vent hood. It must be clean and free of lint buildup. Check the damper and make sure it opens fully and easily and is free of lint.

I know you said you have no elbows, but I have posted the pipe run lengths with and without elbows. Keep in mind this is with 4 inch rigid or semi rigid metal ducting.

Measure the length of your exhaust system and count the elbows. Use the chart below to see if your duct is too long. If it is too long, have the duct routed to another location that is within the venting guidelines.

0~90 degree elbows=65 ft of 4 inch rigid metal duct.
1~90 degree elbow=55 ft of 4 inch rigid metal duct.
2~90 degree elbows=47 ft """"""""
3~90 degree elbows=36 ft """"""""
4~90 degree elbows=28 ft """"""""

You should always use duct tape or metal tape on all joints, NEVER USE SCREWS, as screws capture lint inside the pipe.

One more note. Lots of people overlook the fact that fabric softeners can build up on the lint filter over time. This buildup can restrict the airflow through the filter reducing dryer efficiency and lengthening drying times. After removing lint, if the filter looks dark or dirty when held up to the light, follow these steps to clean:

Use hot soapy water and a stiff brush to clean
the filter.
Make sure the filter is completely dry before
reinstalling it and using the dryer.
NEVER operate the dryer with a wet lint filter.

My Kenmore 600 is not even 2 years old. It spins and appears to have heat but the clothes do not dry. I cleaned a ton of lint from the flex pipe/elbow joint in the rear of the dryer but this has not...


You are on the right track by cleaning the vent elbow.

Also check:

The entire vent line to the outside diverter (the little thing that looks like a hood). Depending on your dwelling, the vent line can also become obstructed with lint and sometimes other things like bird's nests, especially near the discharge outlet. This can happen when the flapper valve at the outlet sticks.

Make sure the lint screen is always kept clean

Another thing to try - empty the dryer and pull it away from the wall until you can get behind it. Disconnect the vent line and turn the dryer on air only. The air velocity coming out of the dryer air exhaust line should feel pretty strong. If it doesn't, the fan could be full of lint as well or there could be an issue with the exhaust fan itself. If the fan is plugged or bad, the back of the dryer will have to be removed and the fan checked.

The dryer should not be overloaded and be sure the clothes being dried aren't too wet (possibly indicating a washer spin cycle issue).

Need to side vent LG dryer


if you have an opening on the side then yes you can shorten the stiff tube that comes out the back but i recommend you get a stiff elbow to make the turn and add whatever is needed to come out the side then attach the flexible to the wall. that's the safe way of doing it. That air is pretty hot in the cabinet

Maytag Dryer


You can order a side vent kit for it or make one yourself. The kit has a couple of extensions and an elbow that will turn the exhaust out the knock out on the side. You can pick up everything you need at the hardware store but the kit has precut pieces and installation instructions. If it is not a big inconvienience to wait for it, I would recommend you order the kit through a maytag dealer or sears. That way you have the right pieces and instructions to follow.
