Question about Dryers
I've bought a new house and the dryer venting is already installed. However, upon inspection I've found there are 6 elbows between dryer hook up and vent outside and it starts at 4" and goes down to 3". This doesn't seem quite right. My questions; Is it safe to reduce to 3" on the venting? How many elbows (90 degree) can the vent pipe have in order to be safe and what is the maximum length of venting pipe that can be used between the dryer and the vent outside? Is there I place on the net where I can print specks for proper installation of this machine? Thank you so much!

Here is a video at this will walk you thru the troubleshooting a gas dryer. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.
