Advice on connecting a round, metal, foil flex vent from an electric dryer to an oval shaped vent (the vent which runs outside)?
posted by Wallzatcha to home & garden (8 answers total)
More info: This is a new house with only an electric hookup for the dryer, hence an electric dryer. The metal ductwork that runs from the exterior through the crawlspace and ends in the laundry room has an oval hookup. The electric dryer has a round end on the exhaust vent. Strapping the flex vent to the oval vent has been tried with no success.
I'm looking for a permanent fix for attaching the two so no answers that include duct tape....
I've been told that there are adapters or couplers available but after 10 calls to various repairmen, dealers, etc. i have not been able to find one.
