This Maytag 640C dryer has a terminal block for a 240V plug, and it looks like there a a vent hook up on the back.

It could be vented, but I am not certain.

Yes, it uses a 3 inch vent because it is one of the early low-air-flow dryers. It is a very good dryer (check rataed by Consumer Reports, something the HOH never achieved) and has a large drum although it looks like the child-killer door latch needs repair. If the original aluminum blower starts squealing, a plastic version is available to fix that. Maytag had huge aluminum foundries and tried to use it in many applications, not always successfully.

Yep, it's a vented model. I believe this question was answered in the OP.....
