Dryer Venting Installation as per Manufactures' Requirements
I would like to get a copy of an installation instructions guide line based on what a manufacture requires, since our local building inspector is requireing the same. I do not have any installation instructions guide lines on hand.
Would you be able to assist me?

inspect the dryer sides,and see if there is a knockout to remov to allow side venting,some dryers are not side ventable,if the knockouts are there, you may need a kit from maytag specifically for that model...the installation instructions may be helpful if you have them,could provide kit no.,and the how to instruct.
You need to check the following things to sort out the issue you are facing with--
Improper sorting •Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally, to dry a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics •Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take (like beach towels) longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set •Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full •Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed ducting •Check installation instructions for proper ducting/venting.
•Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and unobstructed.
•Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
•Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the dryer venting is correct.
Blown fuses or tripped •Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers circuit breaker use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads •Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at a time.
Underloading •If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items to ensure proper tumbling.
