How do I remove the old duct assembly, outlet? I've removed the bulk head and want to get to the blower fan but cannot figure out how to get the old duct assembly removed.
Answer Hello Jen. If you remove the screws holding the front tumbler assembly on the dryer, the duct assembly will come off with the front tumbler assembly. This will give you access to the blower wheel. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to convert this dryer to side venting? It does not have a punch out on the side to vent just the back vent. Is there a kit?
There is not a side vent kit but there are dryer vent periscope for offsets. This is a flat vent so that you can push up against the wall and be able to run ducting. For between 18-29" offset you would want 4396011RP, for 0-18 inch offset you would want part number 4396037RP and for 29 -50" offset part number 4396014.
All the lint is bypassing the screen and plugs the vent leading to the outside. If I put a nylon on the exhaust vent the nylon fills up with lint. The dryer will work like this for a few days. The lint screen has no holes in it and everything seems to fit tight. What is the problem?
Answer Larry, The lint filter does not collect 100% of the lint from the clothes, they never have, there is always a minimal amount of lint expelled through the exhaust vent system and to the outside environment. Very new and very old natural fibers(cotton) seems to produce more lint than expected. Your exhaust vent system should be checked,cleaned and repaired once a year. Good Luck
