The directions said to take the whole thing apart. I said, screw that!
We got a new washer and dryer at the end of our bath remodel.
The problem? It sits right inside the bathroom door and was sticking 10 inches out from the wall. We even changed the swing of the door so it opened out against the linen closet in the hallway. It was narrow!
I started researching options and found a dryer side vent kit from the manufacturer. I determined we could gain another 5 inches by side venting.
The directions wanted you to remove all the electronics, the front bulkhead, the belts & drum, etc. Our washer and dryer are stacked and were a behemoth in our small bathroom. There was only 6 inches to the ceiling so no way to see what your were doing to remove the control panels, etc before you could get to the bulkhead.
We did the whole changeover through two, four inch holes by flashlight. We each both bled profusely and had to stop a couple times.
It took us 2 hours with bleed breaks. I spent that much time figuring out how we could do it. I attribute our success to that planning time.

The new washers and dryers out there are amazing.
They sense the weight and type of load and dispense only the amount of water necessary. They can do this because they don't have to fill the whole tub with water.
They spin much drier before they get in the dryer so they save alot of energy while using one third the water. That's very important in California where they penalize
you depending upon your electricity and water use.
If I had a smart phone I could control it.
