Hello Guys, installing a new dryer, which will be on the right hand side of the laundry room.

I want to upgrade from the flimsy thin tin-foil vent hose. I bought some of that hard aluminum flex pipe and could not get it to work in my situation. My vent hose needs to come down off the box in the wall, take a right down to dryer and then take a left to attach to the back of the dryer. That stiff hose was not flexible enough to make all those bends.

Do you all have a better idea.

Thank you!

PS: My builder put the dryer wall box on the wrong side in my laundry room. I want the washer on the left since the door opens left and the dryer on the right with the door opening right. :)

In your situation, its best to use the more flexible aluminum exhaust hose.

You bet I have Gary. LOL

But that's to firm to use in this situation, you need the more flexible one.

Contact your builder and tell him to come back and fix it properly.
