The model you have isnt a condensing dryer, so you need a way to remove the moisture expelled from the vent, otherwise you will find the room will get very warm, and the level of moisture will rise which could cause extreme damp problems.

Vent hoses should lead to the outside or a trap such as the one here, regardless of what space\room you give around the dryer under the counter, as you need to remove the moisture.

Please let me know if you need anything clarified.
