Answer: 
Magic Chef has no adaptable duct and this causes a problem for the consumer. We had to improvise and attach a 4" accordion-style duct with aluminum tape. Then we attached the duct to the outside wall vent. Our dryer is wall mounted. Now it vents to the outside and works well.

make sure it's an appliance cord. Use a 14 gauge and not more than 6 ft. That should be ok.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An amazing quiet compact dryer Here is an additional point that I omitted from my previous review: you may wonder about the location of the controls. Note that this unit is set up to be wall mounted. Then the controls are in the right place. If the dryer is on the floor, the controls are very near the floor. Magic Chef has done a great job of constructing this system to be mounted on a wall. The dryer is very quiet as it operates on the wall-mount set up and is exceptionally sturdy. Everything is at eye level and makes for quick and easy use. I love this little dryer even though drying takes longer than with a standard energy-guzzling machine. Our photo shows the MC dryer and its matching MC compact washer set up in a tiny closet. If you have limited space these two machines are problem solvers. July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This little dryer is a gem! This compact dryer made a huge difference for my limited laundry space. We downsized from a full-size laundry room to a desk-sized laundry closet. I purchased this dryer online and then had the laundry closet built to fit the dryer dimensions. This was an important decision as the final measurements of all fittings are slightly larger than the specifications provided. When the dryer was finally installed, two months after purchase, it looked great, fit well, but the drum would not tumble due to a broken belt. The break occurred during transport, supposedly. The service call was easy and after about a week of waiting, a local repair company came out and installed a new belt. The dryer worked as promised. After a week and a few uses, the dryer began to make the noise one hears when a coin or metal button is tumbling with clothing. The noise was also present when the empty dryer drum operated. A call to the repair company gave quick results. Heat expansion of a metal part caused the banging in the interior mechanical area. We paid nothing for either of these repairs as the dryer is under warranty. Weeks later the dryer is working normally. It is quiet and efficient to a point. It does take longer than a standard high electricity or gas consuming dryer. We often hang clothes on an outside line and use the dryer to finish up when necessary. Light weight items do best as would be expected. We vented the dryer to the outside but this was not easy as the fitting on the back of the dryer does not have a vent duct provided. We purchased a 4" diameter "accordion" duct and with aluminum tape, adapted our own connection, from the dryer to the outside wall vent. Our system works great but Magic Chef needs to pay attention to this important detail. My phone call to the company resulted in frustration as they have nothing to make this fitting. Magic Chef, please make this available for your consumers. We purchased the matching Magic Chef compact washer and had it installed "professionally" when the appliance repair company serviced the dryer. Good decision. We changed the original plastic hoses to high pressure washer hoses to avoid future leaks. If you are considering the washer, don't hesitate. It is amazing. Even the repair person was impressed. See our review under MC compact washer. July 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vent hose is an issue. Dryer works better than expected for a portable unit. Dryer vent is an issue. We could not find a vent hose that would fit the supplied elbow. I installed a 3 to 4 inch adapter and used standard flex hose. This moved the unit much further from the wall. A compatible hose should be supplied with the dryer. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works good so far, Nice dryer We bought an 24" all-n-one LG washer/dryer 2 years ago. Washer is the best ever. Dryer was and is terrible. We had to iron everything pants, shirts, even tee's. First time run through with this dryer and we are set. I put rubber feet under it and set it on top of washer, then vented out and presto! the prefect w/d set. and only 24" wide. Just like others though, hoping it lasts. Not to loud and I only wish that you could put it on high heat w/o turning it to more than 120 min. For our loads, small. It needs a 45 min high heat and a 15 min low. As it is now we set it at 140 min at high and turn it off at 45-60 mins. We use a countdown timer. Can't leave clothes in or they will wrinkle. and it's not $600. July 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor product I bought 4 COMPACT 2.6 CU. FT. ELECTRIC DRYERs from Home Depot . I got and tested them on 7/21/2016. Only of of them works. I tried to contact with Magic Chef many times but no one answer the phone.I will contact with Richmond BBB about this company soon. Do not buy this product July 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Magic Chef Dryer: POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! I have no idea if this dryer would be good because when the company sent it to me it DID NOT WORK! They sent a service rep who was nice, but could not repair it, Yet Magic Chef was rude on the phone to me when I called them the second time about it. July 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Magic chef Terrible product!!!! Got it home and it did not work. Complete garbage August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price I got my dryer about 3 weeks ago and I love it. I have a 1.6 magic chef washer and any load I do I know it'll fit in the dryer. It doesn't take long for the clothes to dry. My only complaint is that after running a few loads it becomes hot and stops working until it cools down. I recommend only doing a load or two at a time.
