I want to move my Kenmore electric dryer (model number 970-C82062-10)

Resolved Question:

I want to move my Kenmore electric dryer (model number 970-C82062-10) from it's current location and I am trying to figure out what is possible. This will require an extension to the venting of approx 10 feet with 2 x 90 degree turns. The venting currently does a 180 with approx 20 feet. the total length would then be approx 30 ft with 4 x 90 degree turns. If done with proper material will this pose a problem?

If it isn't possible, I plan to buy a stackable set, but my 240 is currently at ground level. Is it possible to get a longer power cord or will I have to move the 240 service higher?

** Chart data compiled from product owner's and installation manuals.

Your dryer is made by Frigidaire (wci) so check the chart in the number of elbows and type of hose you are using to determine whether it's possible for you, otherwise you will need to move the line, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
