Can I move my Kenmore electric dryer laying down in my car? Or does it have to be upright?

I don't have a truck and have to move my electric dryer. Will it be damaged if I lay it down in the back of my car?

You should have no problem moving it that way, although that's not the ideal way. The only problem with that position is the drum, it could move, but not likely. I , not a pro, would say your fine with that but if you have some issues once you set it upright more then likely the drum has move out of it's saddle position. Sometime just running it will reposition or rotating it by hand will align it. I tore my appart to clean out the lent and I was suprised at how little there was to it, as far as moving parts. I'm not claiming to be an expert but in my opinion your fine to do it that way. Jack

Moving a dryer on its side or back is fine however I have some recommendations:

I would haul it standing up, if at all possible

I would not haul it on its side for the fact that it may be damaged, cosmetically

If you are unable to haul it standing, your best option would be to haul it on its back, but remove the cord (it should unscrew from the top) to prevent damaging the cord. Make sure you pay attention to how you remove the cord so you can put it back on at its new location.

I would also put something between the dryer and the bottom of the vehicle such as a blanket or a big peice of cardboard to prevent cosmetic damage.
