Washer/dryer

Any suggestions or tips on venting the dryer I just added to the outside world?

For mine, I went with an offset from the dryer and installed the vent in the black so I didn't have to paint it 3 colors, however it was a clumsy install trying to keep everything connected while I set the dryer.

Vaughan (Piperguy) had a better plan where he was able to put something on the dryer output and push the dryer in so it marked the wall exactly where the hole needed to be drilled. Might have to paint multiple colors or go chrome, but a better install I imagine.

As far as drilling, a 4" hole saw with a pilot bit does the trick. Mine was not deep enough so I started inside then went outside and finished.

On my brand new 390MB the dealer measured carefully and cut the pilot hole from the inside then went outside and used a hole saw, while I cried.

All was redeemed when he put on the chrome vent!

No way was I going to cut that hole but the tech that was going to do it asked me in advance if I would look at the exterior and see if I could see the frame lines from the condensation before they did it. Unlike my previous unit I never saw them, the upside being the slides are pretty well insulated.

I have a 36 RL that will accommodate a side by side W/D but I went with an all in one and put a chest freezer in the dryer spot. For me one of the the best decisions I have made.

We have a 2014 36FB. We have installed a stack washer and dryer. I was told that the dryer did not have to be vented outside but after thinking more I intend to vent it outside.

Moisture from drying clothes has to go somewhere and I surely wouldn't want it inside.

Some of the combo units don't require a vent, but I'm not aware of any stackable ventless dryers.

We have an FB also with w/d vented & no way would I want a dryer unvented in that tiny cabinet, it's just big enough for the w/d. I can only invision the problems that kind of moisture in that small of space could create.
