Steam dryer can vent to side; what about water inlet on side?

Jan 5, 2011
Model Number
Whirlpool Cabrio dryers can be converted to vent to the side, but for models with steam can the water inlet also be moved to the side? Are there threaded junctions in there, or would it involve a custom hack job?

To get this sucker as close to the wall as possible I've had the sheetrock opened up for the rear vent, and will seal off the opening to meet code. However, the rear water inlet is also flush with the back, and I'd rather not have any dripping or worse going on in there where I can't see it.

Good question, but I really don't know that answer to that.

You can contact Whirlpool and ask them.
