A: I have used this style for over 50 years. It is meant to flex so you can attach the tubing to your dryer then shove it back in place. You will need to gently adjust the tubing so it does not look like a snake. Push the tubing together as you shove the dryer in position.
A: You should be able to it's flexible like a slink with a cover over it to be expandable up to the max length.
A: Greetings, This is a good question! For best performance, we recommend the exhaust duct be extended and cut to the needed length. For more information, please consult the information found in the installation instructions of your dryer. Have a great day! Mike@GEA
A: Hi! We can understand wanting to double check. This dryer duct kit is designed to fit most gas and electric dryers and can easily be cut to a custom length. You can also take a look at your dryer's installation instructions to see if more is said about exhausting your dryer. Hope this helps! -Michael@GEA
A: Yes, that's what it's for.
A: It can be used with either gas or an electric powered dryer.
A: It is aluminum flexible with a wire in side the aluminum so pretty corrosion resistant never had one rust.
A: Wire cuts like steel, likely tempered steel and maybe electroplated. (Takes a sharp pair of diagonal pliers to cut.) It is very well sealed in layers of polyester and aluminum. In the many years I've used this and similar non-rigid ducts, I've never noticed any corrosion when cleaning. I try to clean whenever dryer is out or move dryer and clean every 5 years. The older white duct would last about 15 years and then lose flexibility. Wall vent should be cleaned every 20 years or if it just “seems” to take longer for clothes to dry. When used for gas or electric dryer, I think corrosion is not a concern. PS If your house is over 20 years old and you don’t know if wall ducting has been cleaned, it is a safe bet it hasn’t been cleaned!
A: Hi gamp7979 - This is a heavy-duty four-ply aluminum foil/polyester laminate, both flexible and durable. Keep in touch! Sue
A: I think it's aluminum.
A: Yes! We trimmed ours down easily!
A: If you don't pull it apart it stays fairly short. That's what I did.
A: No you should not trim it. You need to be careful when installing any vent so as to not restrict air flow, a 6 inch vent length would not allow very much space to correct the alignment, you should have a professional look at it and give recommendations, unless you are replacing a previous vent.
A: Hi Drae- The dryer duct is flexible for ease of installation so should not require cutting. 8' is the length when fully extended. Keep in touch! SUEatGEA
A: The instructions recommend that the hose be trimmed if it is too long. In my case, the hose was a bit too long but I simply did not stretch it out to its full length, and not trim. Remember you will probably need some working room to get in behind the appliance.
