Theere should not be any licensed professional that would be willing to "put his neck on the line", or jeopardize his license or insurance by doing, or okaying, this installation. A dryer by definition cannot be a direct vented/combustion device, so unless the closet is sealed and provision made for intake'exhaust venting, and it is approved by the building department it should not be done.
: : : I am told you cannot have a gas dryer in a bedroom closet. Have you heard of this? Is it because there is nothing other than lint ventilation?

: As was said earlier, no gas burning appliances, except certain direct-vented heaters, are permitted in bedroom areas. Besides the exhaust venting issues, there are issues regarding the need for sufficient oxygenated air to support the combustion. Closets are usually closed spaces without sufficient fresh air to support complete combustion. This is certainly a case where you want to have a licensed professional to either do the job or check out what you do. And you will definitely want the local inspector to sign off on the job.
