I was wondering how well-aligned things need to be with the Mag Vent. Can you buy a different dryer?
Within a few inches.

I'll need to get a new dryer when we move....

Re: Dryer Vent Connection


My right hand man came up with this, and think, it's on point. If one is dealing with a 2x4 wall.... Open up the sheet rock, and cut the circle about 1/2 part of the bottom plate, and two inches outside. If you want to be closer to the back, sobeit. Also, I like to have the vent, off center a few inches.



Usually, the plug sticks out a spell, as do the hoses on the washer. So, getting the dryer all the way back isn't so realistic anyways.
