can both vent openings be on the same side? In other words the exhaust makes a "U" turn.

No, do not listen to the “team whirlpool” advice. I just returned it for this reason.

Standard or not, it's still absolutely ridiculous that the diameter is not listed in the specifications...

This duct is not rated for use thru a window and will void the dryer warranty if use in that manner. Mike

Why do you have to vent with a periscope instead of straight out the back

Asked by Rod August 22, 2020

Answers

This would be because the dryer vent coming from the wall is not aligned directly behind the vent from the dryer.

Yes. Might need a regular vent piece, but will fit into the vent.

Can the scope be shortened?

Yes. Cut the square shorter. Can go down about as far as the two inlet/outlets being on top of each other.

Our dryer was on its last legs when we bought our & it wasn’t very big. When we bought a new bigger dryer, of course I didn’t think of the connection to the dryer vent. I already hooked up the washer & the location of the dryer is tight (see the picture). It was also a tight squeeze for the vent even for a flexible vent hose. My frustration level was beyond max since the flexible hose kept coming undone since there is no room to spare. This is where the Whirlpool Periscope comes in to save the day. I was able to trim it down to be able to fit it in the tight space (I was rushing and could have done more trimming as you can see in the picture). This made the dryer vent connection complete in minutes compared to the couple hours I spent trying to make the flexible one work. Definitely will recommend this product to others that have to work in tight spots for setting up dryers. It has been roughly a year now with no issues to report.

This product allowed us to get the back of the dryer as close as 3 inches from the wall. It was easy to install and only took about 30 minutes to install it. This made it possible for us to have the front load dryer in the space provided in our laundry room and gave enough clearance for the laundry room door to close.

I bought this because I made a built in pedastil for my washer and dryer. They were raised 20" and closer to the wall so the conventional corrugated tube wouldn't work this was adjustable to the height and ANGLE I needed, I couLdnt have made the project work without it. Plan ahead!!

The installation wasn't too easy, because you need to push the dryer into place and connect one end at the same time. That is not a fault of the product, but just know that going in. Also, if your exhaust vent to the outside if very close to the corner of a wall, the corner of the vent will hit the wall when you use the vent at an angle. Make sure to use the crimp side for the connection to the outside vent, and the smooth side for the exhaust vent from the dryer. It will not work otherwise, and will leak exhaust. It saved me a bunch of space, a traditional aluminum flex tube was around 6.5" and this was about 4.5". I needed the vent to be under 5.5", so I was very pleased with how the installation ended up. A tin snip is required to trim the vent to size.

Installation went well and as instructed. I was able to move the dryer closer to the wall 2-1/2” than with the traditional round vent. I had to be creative with the couplers but utilized the old round vent to do so.

This dryer vent was easier to install than other user reviews led me to believe, and it provides for a much more direct venting of dryer air, resulting in better dryer performance. It also let's us keep the dryer closer to the wall, maximizing space in laundry room.
