Redirecting vent on Maytag dryer

I can not figure out how to post a new thread.
Yes I'm new.
Ok. I'm wanting to redirect the dryer
Vent on my performa dryer by maytag
Model # pdet910ayw

The question is do I have to take the
Drum ( take the whole thing apart )
out or can I change it from
the bottom once I get all the screw out ?

Welcome to the forums.

I moved you to your own thread.

Right now the exhaust vent is out the back. What do you want to do..... come out the side ?
Are you sure that can be done with that dryer..... do you see knockout plates on the side ?

But I'm just not to sure I don't wAnt to do
It the wrong way.

No.... you want to take the dryer apart from the front and you will need to remove the barrel.

In the link below..... go to the bottom of the page. There are service videos there. Click on and watch "How to replace drum support roller." The first half of the video will show you how to access the area you need to work in.

I don't think you have access from underneath.

Do not try to take apart from back, bottom follow directions, UNPLUG DRYER FIRST Should not take more than a hour to do job if you have what you need in parts.

Did you watch the video I left the link for above. It shows how easily the dryer comes apart for servicing.

Seeing which dryer you have you have a 5 minute tear down. 2 spring clips pushed in with putty knife each side of top between top and front, Go to site PJmax gave you and scroll to bottom directions there. One of the easiest dryers I know to work on.
