Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
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.
