Question about LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer
We just got a new washer and dryer. We need to side vent it. No one told us we needed to buy an expensive kit. Has anyone done this themselves? Couldn't it be done with the same rigid flex venting matereial that you put on the outside of the dryer to the vent? Say we shorten the exisiting metal pipe that goes from the front to the back of the dryer and add the flex hose there to go out the side and directly to the hole in the all that vents outside? I don't want to spend that much more money and wait another week before we can do laundry.
If you have an opening on the side then yes you can shorten the stiff tube that comes out the back but i recommend you get a stiff elbow to make the turn and add whatever is needed to come out the side then attach the flexible to the wall. that's the safe way of doing it. That air is pretty hot in the cabinet
