Object stuck in dryer vent Kenmore Elite model number 796.81022900 796.81022900


Thanks for the inquiry and for using
You can remove the dryer vent assembly, but you will need to disassemble the dryer to gain access to it. It will connect from the blower housing to the exhaust port on the rear panel. Before going to that extent, you may want to try using a dryer lint brush through the rear exhaust port and try snaking it out. That would be a much easier option depending on what's stuck and how jammed it could be. You could also try taking an air compressor and shooting compressed air through the opening on the front where the lint screen mounts and see if you could push it back, but once again it would be dependent upon what's stuck and if it's jammed in. 
Hope this helps. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help assist you. Thanks for using
