Question about Dryers
We bought a new washer and dryer. Washer installation went fine. The dryer is an LG DLEY1201V. When I went to attach the flexible dryer hose to the wall, I noticed the metal is bent into an oval, and not a circle. I can barely get the hose on, and definitely can't get a good seal. What's my next step?
An oval dryer hose can be installed by squeezing it back into the desired round shape as you fit it to the outlet. With time and infinite patience it can be done.

SOURCE: Need to side vent LG dryer
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

Hello paulehni, welcome to Fixya.
First things first, have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?
**Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch**
That is where I`d start and focus your attention. They are at the back as I said located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.
With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.
Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown. You can find these fuses at most brick & mortar appliance part stores or on-line parts vendors such as repairclinic.com, amresupply.com, reliableparts.ca etc. Part number is #8058140 and you should replace both. The number may substitue to an in-store number, it really depends on the vendor, just provide your model number and you should have no trouble.
Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.
Thank`s for visiting Fixya today and good luck.
