Asked by: sarah
Yes - use a good pair of scissors, then get a pair of wire cutters to cut the spiral wire.

Is this vent hose compliant with NYS building code?

It seems like only rigid dryer vents are allowed, but I can't tell if this one counts or not. Apparently the thin ones with plastics are not.

Hello Ti, Thank you for your question on the GE 4 in. x 8 ft. Dryer Duct Model # PM8X73DS. Yes, it can be used. UL now requires that all dryers be installed with either rigid or flexible metal ducting. Rigid is preferred. UL-listed foil dryer ducts are only allowed under very strict criteria. The vent length charts found in the installation instructions have been updated, no semi-rigid or foil dryer ducts may be used in lengths greater than 8-feet. The white flexible plastic ducts tend to contract over time where there is a curve and allow less than a 4" diameter at 90 degree turns. Lint tends to build up in these areas and has caused fires in some cases. Venting straight up through the roof is no longer acceptable. Plastic duct work is no longer approved for a safe installation. GE now strongly recommends only rigid dryer ducts or UL-listed semi-rigid dryer ducts kit #WX08X10077. Any dryer ducts used must be UL-listed I hope this helps! Donna with GE

how to use the clamps, they are too rigid to tight

Asked by: Anonymous
The clamps are just like those spring grip exercise things from the 80s and about as useless. Though you can get them to work (sometimes with a little bleeding) I often skip them and just use zip strips. Can't reuse them but they are a lot easier to get in place. Cheers, Allan

Works well just a bit tricky to get it started over the existing exhaust pipe if it is out of round at all and you are installing it by yourself. Helpful tip you can buy the Everbilt 4 in. Galvanized Steel Worm Gear Clamp and temporarily install it about an inch back from the end of the exhaust pipe until you get the Dryer Duct started over the exhaust pipe especially if the pipe is out of round. loosen the clamp and slide it over the Dryer Duct, then slide the Dryer Duct further over the exhaust pipe then move the worm gear clamp back over the exhaust pipe and tighten it just enough to secure it in place.

Bought a dryer and sales associated stated HD would not connect dryer if I did not buy a dryer duct for warranty. Therefore she sold me this GE duct and said it was cheaper than having the installation people bring one. Well upon installation and the men said they could not hook the GE duct because of how flimsy it was made with thin Al foil and polyester. Therefore they replaced the GE with theirs and stated it was the MFG'S recommendation. Who knows? Any way this might work for someone replacing their old one themselves, but not good enough for HD installation on new dryers.

I discovered that trying to put a dryer hose on a dryer vent can be extraordinarily difficult or impossible. Home Depot had a very good and reasonably priced vent that worked very well, and if I had just picked up the very reasonably priced hose at the same time instead of trying to use the old one that came with the dryer I would have saved myself a lot of trouble. Finishing the project was simple and earned a resounding 'Doh!'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong product dimensions I drove all the way to this Home Depot from the next town over because the product description states this was a 5" flex. I get there and the box says 4". The product sku was the same so it's not like they were out of the 5" flex. If you need a 4" flex this is it. If you need a 5" they don't carry it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO INSTALL Dryer vent was easy to install. I had to cut the length because it was about 2 feet too long, but that too was easy with a scissors and wire cutter. My old one lasted 15 years, had a few small holes in it from cleaning the lint out every year. Hope this new one is as durable.

I would highly recommend purchasing larger hose clamps to secure the duct because the included snap rings are next to useless IMO.

Seems to be 1/4 the quality of the one I was replacing that is 4 years old. after a few feet of making holes, I finally got it on the dryer and the wall and working. Wish quality was better though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install works as it should This worked as it should. It fit perfectly and was easy to install. I did use a different clamp than the one provided which made for a much easier install. The one provided is a "pinch" type vs. the one I used which is the type with a screw tightener
