I bought the Kenmore 6 ft. Snap-Lock Flexible Pipe for my dryer. It is a nice one piece alternative to fabricating a lot of smaller pieces together. It says it takes 6 inches of pipe to complete a 90 degree turn, but I would argue it takes 9 inches. Note that a clamp is still needed to secure the pipe to the dryer, and to the wall, and that those clamps are not included.
Might have been more useful covering the Thanksgiving turkey. Trying to "stretch" this stuff and bend it to fit the opening without tearing it is almost impossible. Might work if it is to go in a straight line, so to speak. For me it was a complete waste of time and money.
Do not buy this part online, you are much better going to the store to purchase. We bought this and the installer told us we did not need it and could return it to our local Sears store. We took it to the store and attempted to return it. We had our receipt and the part with original labeling. We waited 30 minutes and the store clerk could not return it. He told us to leave the part and he would call us the next day to credit our account. We did not receive a call. We called one day later and spoke to the Store Manager who informed us this could not be done over the phone. Our only option is to drive 30 minutes to this store to return the parts, but she will be shipping them back to us first. We requested a gift card, but she informed us she cannot do this either. How ridiculous is this for a total of $24.98? We will think twice before buying from Sears Online in the future.
We bought this new exhaust pipe, and the dryer operates more efficiently now; additionally, the laundry room stays cooler and the lint stays on the filter opposed to the walls of the laundry room. The last one came from a big-box home improvement store--never again. Also, thanks to our technician who was competent and skilled at quickly installing the pipe.
works as it should
I never got my order! Customer service was the worse I've ever experienced!! They did not understand that I couldn't drive to get the stacking kit they ordered for me and sent to Mississippi whilst I live in Washington state. They even called the dispatch in Mississippi twice trying to get them to deliver it! Bet Sears business overall has grossly declined! Wouldn't shop there again ever, no matter what a good sale they might seem to have!! It's not a sale if you can't manage delivery and installation!!
Comes with everything you'll need no matter what your installation situation is!
This worked well, however I wish it had been a tad longer to go from the floor to the basement ceiling where it exhausts out.
