My first post here. Thanks in advance for any advice!
I’m at a loss. Can usually ‘google’ most things but struggling with this one 😫
Bought a vented tumble dryer, already have a vent in the wall so this was the cheaper and obvious option. Bush model with plastic vent tube and connector to attach to the machine but no way to attach it to the vent in the wall. Should have looked into this more prior to delivery!
I’ve searched for a connector but no joy. My guess is I will need to replace the wall vent, assume it’s quite old?! As long as the tube from dryer to vent will fit is it ok to use any kind/material? Some are plastic, some more paper type, do they all do the same job?
Confused. Most kits seem to be for the vent through the wall and not to attach to the actual dryer.
Please help!
Many thanks
