Question about Maytag Electronic Portable Air Conditioner Heat
I insulate the (hot) hose so the heat -- for sure -- goes outside. Any heat that returns into the room defeats the work to get it out of the air in the first place.
Using a dryer hose is fine if air doesn't blow out of the seams. Considering that the unit may cost $300/season to operate (just for the electricity) you might want to be sure the hot air gets out. I wrapped a blanket around the hose.
If the sun is on a hose that is not made of UV-stabilized material, it may become brittle. Side note: venting out to the sunny side of a room hampers the efficiency of the unit. Avoid operating the unit with direct sun on it.

If the AC/heater air control doesn't work, you most likely have a vacuum line broken. All the air flow doors in the heater system are vacuum operated and without it the air will blow out of the windshield defrost vents. The common place for a vacuum line to break is under the hood where the lines pass near a hot area. The vacuum lines are normally a rigid black plastic tubing about 3/16 inch in diameter. They run across the engine compartment fastened to the section just below the wipers and air vent. The tube goes through the dash, usually near the steering column. When the tubing has been hot for long time it becomes brittle and cracks or breaks. Trace this tubing looking for a crack or break. The easiest repair is to cut out the broken section and replace it with rubber hose of the correct diameter. The hose needs to have an inside diameter that will fit snugly on to the vacuum tubing.
