Thank you for your question.

If I understand you correctly you would like the dimensions to install the dryer vent pre-installation in the home before the delivery of the product.

  • The dryer vent hole is 4 inches in diameter.

  • Viewing from the back of the dryer the left cabinet edge is 13 inches to the center of the dryer vent hole.

  • From the right hand cabinet edge it is 14 1/2 inches to the center of the vent hole.

  • It is approximately 4 1/2 inches from the floor to the center hole of the dryer vent. This is approximate because of the adjusting of the leveling legs upon installation.

  • The dryer has an extended back panel and viewing form either side of the cabinet it is 6 1/2 inches from the extended back panel to the center line of the side vent. It also is 4 1/2 inches from the floor to the center line of the vent hole.

  • The manufacture recommends the dryer needs at least 5 inches of clearance from the wall behind the dryer to the back wall of the dryer to make sure the venting has ample room to be installed and not crushed or damaged.
