Question about Dryers
Thanks to BENHAM and OLDFIXER for sorting out my problem with my Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Loader that needed a motor coupling that had broken.
You were both spot on!! There it was broken in half. The replacement has been made more solid and has a metal insert hole.
Anyway, I have another issue.
I want to vent my Whirlpool 3RLEQ8000 Electric Dryer from the side instead of out of the back and I want to know how to remove the outer casing so as to get to the vent.
There is a circular disc underneath and on the side of the dryer that allows for the vent to either come from below or from the side.
At the moment, the vent is connected from the rear but when I push the dryer up against the wall and because of the skirting board the hose to the vent is being occluded/kinked.
I want to connect the hose instead from the side but how do I get inside the machine.
I tried removing the screws at the rear of the machine only to find that they hold the drum in place.
Do I have to remove the drum or is there a better way of takling the issue.
Hope you can Fixya me problem!!
I'm not sure about this with your machine but look low on your front panal. Most have two screws holding front panal on. Usually hidden in the character line along the base.(Clips will hold the the upper under the top...just flip up the panal it will pop off.) I hope this helps.
