Question about Dryers
When we bout our Maytag Performa PYE3200AYW electric dryer years ago, it was modified at the appliance shop to route the vent out the bottom. The shop replaced the original internal rigid vent pipe with aluminum foil flex. I want to change it to vent out the back using a rigid vent pipe from the internal blower to the opening in the back. Which type of rigid vent pipe should I use, aluminum or steel? Steel seems to get hot. Will steel get too hot inside the cabinet?
My current internal vent runs out the side, I need to change it to the back but cannot find directions for it. I have the model Mdg6800aww.

You are always better off using steel on these kinds of conversions and do not worry about how hot it gets,..Aluminum will get hot too. Steel is more rigid and less likely to dimple in while installing or hooking up the external vent system... Hope this helps..
