Can't fit flexible hose onto dryer vent

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

SOURCE: Asko W/D. Power to 220 wall outlet and washer

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.

I replaced the hot & cold water valves on my LG Washer/Dryer .Now it just humms and no water goes into the washer..What can cause this problem?


have you tried both the cold and hot?hot only has one solenoid while the cold has three.just because it is a new part dose not mean it is not mean it is a good part.try this,turn off the cold and hot water,remove the cold hose from the washer and put it in a bucket and turn it on at the hose bib.if you do not get water,you may have a screen in the hose bib end of the hose.if no screen on that end you may have a metal fitting rusted up just under the hose bib.check the hot side also.hope this helps,if not repost and i will try to dig deeper.thanks

We have just been given one of these units for our caravan in France. It doesn't have an flexible outlet hose like one we used to have (like you get on non condenser tumble dryers) does this unit have one...


If the is an all -in-one or Combo Washer/Dryer like Haier, EuroTech, LG and others make, that you wash and dry all in one unit, there is no venting vecessary. The unit extracts the moisture through very high speed revolutions per minute and then has a 120 volt dryer that kicks in to dry the items completely. There is a lint trap drawer under the front of the unit, that should be cleaned regularly. Be careful when you pull the drawer out, as it will contain some water. The thin black pipe (which should be flexible) is where the water comes out and goes into the motor home's washer drain stack.

These units can shake a lot, if they are not properly leveled (Front to back & Side to side). So when installing it make sure it is level.

Enjoy your caravan to France!

Getting a lot of condensation at wall where the dryer vent attaches, we have moved and the new house has a smaller laundry room. The first time we used the dryer I noticed a puddle of water, checked washer...


My suspicion is that the damper on the dryer vent is not completely closing, allowing the cold air to pass into the house. Also check to see if the vent hose is sealed to the vent with duct tape or steel tape.

We have to vent the dryer out the side as we have moved it to a new laundry room. How do we go about accessing the unit to do the same


If it is a conventional vented dryer, there should be an outlet for it, ususlly at the rear, or sometimes the side of the dryer.
It may have a blank plate fitted, which you have to remove.
You can do it by fixing a flexible hose to the outside, or it can be permanently vented with a proper through the wall vent kit.
Hope this is the information you are looking for.

I want to change my LG front load washer so i will open to the right


Sorry, but the door on the washers are not reversible, only the dryer doors are reversible. I'd suggest using a low profile telescopic style dryer vent to allow you to put the washer on the left side without worrying about the dryer vent location. You can get longer dryer power cords if needed, and water supply extention hoses, or just longer hoses if needed. The drain hose is usually long enough to still reach the drain. I have done this many times.

Re: lg wm1812


There is a vent at the back of the machine near the top that is covered by a small round white plastic cross pattern. Inside of the machine there is a black flexible hose that attaches to the vent from the top of the outer tub. inside of the tub attachment point is supposed to be a light blue plastic valve that looks like an old style army helmet on a peg. The peg fits into a flange in the opening on the outer tub. If this valve is missing water will escape from the vent on the back of the machine. Another likely point of water leak is a loose inlet hose or missing washer on the inlet hose.
