You'll have to go to lowes or home depot and buy the rigid vent pipe not the flex type. Figure up the elbows and straight pcs. Usually vent pipe is 4,6,8 So make sure you get the correct size. Now as far as going through an existing interior since the vent pipe will be larger than the wall studs you want be able to go through the walls unless you have 6in. stud walls and the vent pipe for a dryer is usually 4in. I think. If you do have 6in interior walls you can run through them but make sure it's interior walls instead of outside wall interior walls usually dont have insulation. If you can't go through the walls your next option is simply through the each floor and out the roof or out the wall. Build a square chaise around the vent with 2x4 lumber, drywall and finish.Be careful if you go through the walls you may have to reroute wiring and water pipes.

What is the difference between modern and contemporary furniture?


The main difference is modern may be limited to designs from a particular time span, but contemporary can include modern design. Modern furniture design includes common design, but with a blend of things like wood, leather, metal, etc. where as contemporary design includes the new creation commonly not found in modern design. Like if I have an Old Italian sofa and changed its fabric and painted it silver matching my room's interior than its modern. But with the same sofa I convert it to a lounge or recliner chair than its contemporary.

Kenmore dryer 70Series . Taking forever to dry...alway us clean the vent. What else?


hello. the problem is that there is lint built up in the vent partially blocking the air flow OR there is a blockage out doors where the vent sends the hot wet air outside. Pull the machine away from the wall, unplug it, and then loosen the clamps so that you can remove the vent pipe.

Check the interior of the vent pipe, and inside the rear of the dryer. and the exit to outdoors. Remove any blockages. Joe

Bravo gas dryer takes too long todry clothes


Taking too long can be very difficult to troubleshoot because term is quite relative. A load of bed linens will dry much quicker than a load of jeans.

Check your dryer vent (usually outside) to see if a bird or critter has made a home. Then check your vent hose. Same thing, look for buildup of lint here. Check your filter as well. See if there has been any lint that has built up and fallen off the filter (look down in tube, holder, etc).

Since dryers use room air to circulate with, and then expel it outdoors, also make sure that there is adequate air flow to the dryer. Open a window in same room, if you can. If it improves, then your house is sealed up tight (and that's the problem).

My GE select dryer all of a sudden doesn't dry a load of clothes in the same amount of time. It takes almost twice as long.. why?


This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working properly. Ensure you are not running the dryer in a closed room which would starve the dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.

If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)

Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

There is actually an indoor vent kit that consists of a dryer hose and a lint bucket that you place water in. The hose attaches to the dryer and connects to a lint bucket that holds a small amount of water. The concept is that the vent blows air straight down into the bucket and any lint gets trapped in the water. On the negative side, you will have to empty the bucket from time to time and keep it in a location where it is not going to get tipped over. You also need to make sure the dryer hose does not get kinked or pinched off in a way that prevents air flow, or your dryer will begin to back up with lint, which could cause dryer failure and/or a fire. Is there any reason why you can't vent to the outdoors? The reason I ask is because running a dryer in this fashion can cause humidity build up and mildew in your home over a long periods of time. Nylon will also tend to collect lint and clog. You will have to be diligent about keeping it cleaned. I hope this helps you. You can purchase an indoor vent kit at most appliance stores.
