Can you get into the crawl space? If yes, vent the dryer through the floor to the nearest outside wall (keep it short) and "BAM" its vented! Use a tee instead of a 90degree ell where it comes through the floor for a clean out.

Through the floor and direct to the outside. Not into the garage,,,,

The least amount of turns/bends the better.
