No its very easy to do, I assume it is an Electric Model.

Buy the kit if you want, it will have instructions!

Most dryers have a circle on the side that just needs to pop out, however its not that easy! it may take a slight tap or two

If your really good, go to your local Hardware store and buy the metal 4 inch flex venting, and do it yourself. Unplug dryer, remove front panel, and create your own vent the direction you want it, Use a really good duct tape, and seal the seams. make sure the vent doesnt touch anything else, :" Heater, wires, etc.

Reassemble and use the venting, I would recommend cleaning the dryer venting at least once a year.

I have a Maytag Quiet Plus ll Model # MDE9806AYW. We found water in the dryer vent. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?


A plugged outlet vent. Start the dryer and go outside and check the vent. It should have a strong air flow. It the air flow is not strong check all the vent tubing and the outside vent.

Can i change which side the driver vent is located?


Hello Laurie. Your dryer allows rear vent, left or right vent. Here is a diagram which shows you all three http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDE5500AYW/3048/0151200/M0606011/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Just pull the dryer out from the wall to access the rear and sides. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

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 www.sears.com and under the parts direct tab enter your model number aka 000.00000, and search out the kit.

How do you change the air flow from the back to the side? maytag preforma


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.

How do i side vent my maytag atlantis electric dryer?


Attached is a link to a diagram of your dryer.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170653

You would have to remove the back panel. Remove the existing vent pipe, install a 90 deg elbow of the same size diameter. Then cut a hole in the right or left side of the dryer cabinet that would line up with the new elbow.
Check the side cabnet of your dryer, it appears on the diagram that there may be a 4" knock out for a side exit vent.
Good luck, let me know.

Does maytag make an electric dryer with bottom vent?


you want to vent of of the base of the dryer, directly down? None of the maytag/whirlpool line can handle this anymore. Only side vent options. GE may still be able to bottom vent. no dryer is really made for it out of the factory but some can be converted to it with a kit. usually if they can there will be a knock out panel for the duct in that place. GEs heater is on back wall making more room on the base for this kind of thing.

Maytag Electric Dryer MDE308DAYW doesn't turn on at all when pressing the button


Since the vent was filled with lint I would check the High Limit termal fuse located on the front of the heater asm. It is best to replace the fuse and thermostat. These parts are part of a kit that can be purchased from your local supplier. The heater asm is located in trhe bottom left of the dryer. and looks like this
