It's easiest to have one person on each end and gently pull it until it is fully extended, or as long as you need it.

Answer: 
This is just my opinion, but I would say simply do your best to keep it from getting smashed. A little distortion is not going to matter, but you don't want to obstruct the air flow too much.

Answer: 
Sometimes you may need to re-round the vent connection on the house to better fit the round vent hose. A good pair of plyers or locking pliers can help. You may also want to bend in the edges (1/4" or so) slightly on the house vent pipe (if it is aluminum or tin, as most are) so that the dryer hose slides more easily on to the house fitting. Make sure you loosen and put on the clamps prior to connecting Read More

It take patience, sometimes a spray of wd-40 or another lubricant onto the house fitting will help as well. Read Less

You can use a wire coat hanger to support lifting the hose off the floor and help put it behind the dryer as you move it into place. Don't just use the hook it already has, it will puncture the new dryer hose. Rather, stretch the coat hanger longways and make a hook at the opposite end with your hand. This end will have two wires for added strength and prevent poking into the new dryer hose.

You can use a wire coat hanger to support lifting the hose off the floor and help put it behind the dryer as you move it into place. Don't just use the hook it already has, it will puncture the new dryer hose. Rather, stretch the coat hanger longways and make a hook at the opposite end with your hand. This end will have two wires for added strength and prevent poking into the new dryer hose.
Then you simply use the hook to lift and support the hose so you can and locate it as you move the dryer into place. You can also purchase a right angle vent swivel that will prevent the hose from crimping behind the dryer.
CAUTION: Be very careful you don't use the wire back there while you are also trying to plug the dryer into the wall. Shorting the coat hanger to the 220 V socket is a bad thing. I suggest getting things close, then plugging in and finally moving things into place using the coat hanger as you get closer to the wall.
Hope this helps. Read Less

Hello,
Thank you for your question on the GE dryer.
An elbow may need to be added to keep it from bending. Please see the installation instructions for all specifications and details on venting
UL now requires that all dryers be installed with either rigid or flexible metal ducting. Rigid is preferred. Plastic duct work is no longer approved for a safe installation. 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.
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 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.
I hope this helps.

Answer: 
I did not need to, but you could trim it with a pair of tin snips or something of the sort. It comes compressed, so you can also simply not expand it fully, and then you could stretch it out later if the need arose.

My dryer vent box has an "oval" connection instead of round.

The hose connection on my dryer vent box is not round. It is "oval" shaped. Also it seems to be just a fraction larger than the standard 4" vent hose. I saw in the specs that this hose is 4.5"... Do you think could be shaped into an "oval" to fit on my vent box?

Answer: 
The question you should ask is does it fit? Being very careful try to measure the oval circumference/ perimeter vs. the semi-rigid duct. If the oval is larger do not even try. This duct is fragile and will break. Either at installation or later as the machine vibrates.

Answer: 
I had a similar issue, my connection to the external vent was oval (I had never seen that before) but I was able to bend and shape it using just my hands and get a decent fit. Of course, as an added precaution, a nice layer of duct tape is in order! LOL

Upon delivery of the two dryer ducts it was observed that there were the necessary two functional holes in each of them - one in the front and one in the back. The ductwork itself extended to the 8 ft length in the advertised manner. Upon delivery, the product was examined for any additional holes, which would have rendered it unusable. None were found. During installation, both holes at either end of both dryer ducts were successfully intersected in a parallel fashion to holes in other ductwork components. Namely, an intersection was performed with a connector part that attached to the second 8 ft semi-rigid dryer duct (also containing two functional holes), a output port on an electric clothes dryer, and an input port on a vent that led to the exterior of the dwelling. Connections at all points were successfully achieved using the circular brackets that were supplied with the dryer ducts. An integration test was performed using an operational dryer, and no air leakage was observed from any of the components.

The previous owner had the vent blowing into the fiberglass insulation. I was able to move the insulation in the ceiling rafter to the side and pushed this ridged duct out to the soffit area to allow venting to outside air. it was stiff enough to not bend easy. It will also be better for dryers than the aluminum foil type. Blowing most hot air into fiberglass insulation could cause bad mildew.

I used it for a bathroom exhaust fan duct in a difficult location. It is pretty heavy gauge metal, but expands and bends easily. Be careful not to crush the ends, and keep in mind that once stretched, it does not re-compress. I will soon be using another piece of it for a new dryer installation also

I liked the screw clamps rather than the old ones that had to be squeezed with a pliers. These were much more secure. The vent material was more rigid and seems like it will last.
