Hello everyone, new user here.
Just bought a house and on Wednesday are moving in. The wife and I were looking over the house today and realized we have a problem: the dryer won't fit! As installed in our apartment, the dryer is 5" from the wall at the widest part and 33" from the wall from the front. In the new house, the door from the kitchen into the laundry room swings up against the right wall and leaves only 30" to the back wall.
This is the space:
Now, I assume I need to trim that lower right vent pipe. As it is, the dryer is set to be on the right and the washer on the right. As the washer is less deep, I was considering switching their position and using a periscoping dryer vent.
Is there anything else I can do here? Can I trim that vent that is in the wall very close to the wall and use a smaller periscope?
This is the washer and dryer set in case it helps as well:

Can anyone suggest a solution?
