The laundry room that holds our dryer is only big enough to barely hold the washer and dryer. The dryer is backed up to back wall with the exhaust vent. There is literally no way to put a dryer vent between the two. The exhaust port on the dryer is no more than four inches from the outside wall.
Is anyone aware of a vent mechanism that we could use to vent to the outside? Apparently the vent was jury rigged as a straight pipe. I cannot get the pipe to securely attach to the dryer. Therefore, the exhaust is not safely installed.
I'm not sure what to do. It surprises me that the configuration passes inspection, unless there is a way to create a vent that I'm not aware of.
