Fitting Maytag Bravos Gas Dryer through narrow door

4 posts in this topic

I need to get a Maytag Bravos gas dryer through a narrow door. It's going to be a tight fit. I'm comfortable taking appliances panels apart and putting them back together.

 

Does anyone happen to know what the depth of the dryer would be if I can remove the back and front panels? Or have any other suggestions?

Forgot to add. The opening is 27 1/4" wide. Can get it to just over 28" if I remove the door stops which I'm hoping I avoid.

 

It's not here yet so I can't measure but the front panel and real panel look pretty thick. If I remove the front, back and drum do you think I can get the depth 3" narrower to make it fit?

FYI it's about 26" from front to back with the front cover removed but those little extensions on the top I couldn't do anything about. There was enough clearance where I could pivot those extensions around the door frame. Needed to remove the black plastic base as well. Some of the screws were difficult to get to so I had to remove the drum as well. That made it more time consuming but it made it easier to carry :)

 

Putting it back together was a snap after taking apart and putting together my old dryer while trying to repair it.
