Found by putting the model number clearly on the label into Google.

The Allegheny County Health Department’s Housing program is who you should contact first. If you’re within the city of Pittsburgh, you may have to go through permits and licensing, but the health department should be able to guide you. They can also tell you if the vent violates existing building code. It might be possible that it only violates the manufacture’s warranty.

Also, are the hook-ups mentioned in your lease? If not, prepare yourself for the possibility that your landlord will repair the code violation by removing the hook-ups if you report him.

Just FYI, you can vent a dryer indoors with a special attachment.

Ah the good-ole-duct trick.

> I'm so tempted to try and break 4.6GHz, but my apartment simply gets hot too fast if I go crazy with overclocking.

I know people who do this with their main outs, forces the hot air outside, mounting can be tricky but can work well.

The wheel that serves as the pulley to drive the tumbling in my dryer is plastic.

There it is in all it's glory. Fails once every 6 months or so and I get to replace it. Luckily they're only $16, but it's still a pain in my ass. The old wheel comes out and it has maybe 50% of its original plastic still intact. 100% built to fail.

One-way vent. When the fan or blower on the inside is on the little louvres open up and let air out. When the flow stops they flop back down so outside air can't get in. Used for clothes dryers, bathroom fans, etc.

u/chuckstake · 5 pointsr/DIY

As far as I know, dryers still need to be vented.

I know there is a thing you can buy for indoor use, but it is generally not recommended.

Don't use this if you have a gas dryer.

u/Wyrdia · 4 pointsr/ferrets

I have the same kind, I got it here!

u/checkitoutmyfriend · 4 pointsr/BurningMan

One could set another bucket at a higher level than the FIgJam cooler. Then either use a valve to refill or an aquarium float in the FJ to maintain level. But a FJ cooler will run for4-6hrs. So refilling it is not that big of deal really. (Mine is used for grey water evap so I had a second bucket a valve setup.)

100ah deep cycle batts are the way to go. Don't cheap out and not go deep cycle. (FigJam himself uses a Wal-Mart $80 Deepcycle) Solar panels for other than trickle charge to the batt are labor intensive to keep clean and lose efficiency for the same. So they are good to keep the batt topped off, but not to rely in it running you gear. Unless you are really into solar and know what to expect. It's not all plug and play.

To duct into the tent depends on if you want to cut a hole or not. Some use a dryer duct wall vent. Its glued or screwed the the tent wall. Might have to make a ring to sandwich the material. I would use semi rigid duct as it is stiffer and restricts air flow less then the spring type ducts. Wrap with a towel or foil bubble wrap for some insulation. 5" with one end made to a square fits tightly around the PC fan frame. Problem is 5" is an oddball size for dryer vet fittings that are 4 or 6". Go 6" if you need to chose. less air restriction that way.

If you don't want to cut a hole than you need to stick through the door and seal it up the best you can with a towel or similar.

Be sure to have a vent in the ten to allow air to escape... Swamp are air in - air out cooling.

Here is a link for pumps, fans, media, etc.

If anyone has questions, let me know. I've built a number of them in various forms. Storage bin cooler last year. Trash can version this year. But I use them for grey water evap. A lot less messy then a evap pond or air driven evap.

u/ICA_Agent47 · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

Don't bother with the smart pot brand pots, just find a good fabric grow bag with handles. I use these. I'd also get a different pH tester, or go the analog route with some of this, it's kind of annoying to do but it works. Blue Lab makes very reliable meters, they are worth the extra money if you decide to buy a meter. A lot of problems are caused by improper pH, you definitely don't want to cheap out on a meter (unless you wanna buy new ones all the time). Analog is just as reliable although you can't be as precise with your measurements as you can with digital. This hasn't been a problem for me.

To address some of your questions: Your plan for ventilation sounds fine, you may want to get a window dryer vent to assure the air doesn't flow back through your window. This also makes it a little more stealth.

Nutrients won't be necessary for about 30 days in FFOF because it's a hot soil. In fact if you feed them anything you'll probably burn them. Some seedlings will burn in FFOF regardless of whether or not you feed them nutes, some people recommend their happy frog soil for starting seedlings, then transplanting into FFOF after the roots have developed. Usually you'll be fine in FFOF so I wouldn't worry as long as you're feeding plain water for the first 25-30 days.

You should also get a hygrometer to monitor temps and humidity, it's very helpful in diagnosing potential problems. Other than that and some liquid nutes you've got what you need on that list.

Also, you should definitely start in a smaller container than 5 gal for your seedlings. Get some of those red solo cups, oversized if you can find them. You can establish the plant in those and transplant them right into the 5 gallon.

u/ImThaBean · 3 pointsr/specializedtools

They sell dryer cleaning rods with a brush roll on one end. You slid it into the vent and hook the other side to a drill and feed it into the vent line until it pops out of the exit. Works wonders for those with long runs. My old house had a 15-foot vent run. Got A LOT of gunk out of it regularly.

u/srareddit · 3 pointsr/homeowners

Buying the kit for the first time. Thoughts on this one?

u/PostHocErgo · 3 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

Have you tried a different dryer vent design? Not advocating the specific product, but something like this.

u/jds580s · 3 pointsr/ChineseLaserCutters

You could use that along with some aluminum tape to seal it to the back of the cutter.

I use this blower:
attwood Quiet Blower Water Resistant (White, 4-Inch)

Along with this vent hose:
White Flexible Pvc Vinyl Vent Duct Hose, 4 in. x 20 ft.

These clamps:
Cambridge Tension Clamps, 2 Pk, Zinc Plated Steel

And this quick disconnect:
Dryer Dock Dryer Vent 6" for 4" Tubes, White

If you put the blower near the window it will keep negative pressure upstream which helps put less smoke into the room.

I don’t exhaust out a window, but something like this might do the trick for you:
Window Dryer Vent (Adjusts 24 Inch Through 36 Inch) by Vent Works
Though there may be cheaper or better DIY options for that part.

u/Drefen · 3 pointsr/homeowners

You can easily do it yourself with something like this. I am sure you can find a longer one if necessary or buy 2 and use the rods to make it longer.

It really is a simple DIY project.

u/jm8263 · 3 pointsr/whatisthisthing

It's a 1/3HP electric motor intended for a dryer, intended for whirlpool dryers.

u/FascinatingPost · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Surprised nobody has recommended this.. I just did this and it's much easier than you think it is. Just wiggle the whole thing, the tray underneath and all, get to the vent and use this thing Deflecto Dryer Duct Cleaning Kit, Lint Remover, Extends Up To 12 Feet, Synthetic Brush Head, Use With or Without a Power Drill

u/SisAbq · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Sadly, this is something I know a lot about. Being able to vent outside is optimal, but it all depends on where your dryer is located. I had a dryer located in the middle of the house and the vent ductwork snaked thorough the ceiling to outside --a distance of about 20ft. The result was that even after we cleaned it (we found about 10 years of birds nest in there), the distance was so great, that the humidity would build up in that ductwork and every load to dry took an hour.
So if the dryer is next to an exterior wall, and you're not pounding through adobe, then definitely, do it. That will be the quickest solution. Get at least two bids from a handyman.

If you don't want to do this then you have to use a bucket with about 1" of water in it that comes with a trap-like device for the lint. The main drawback to this is that you must be diligent in cleaning both the dryer lint trap and the indoor lint bucket trap very regularly. If you're not, and say, you let the water dry out then you're literally pumping all that lint into a dry bucket and the stuff will go all over your laundry room and house. I bought a condo, and the seller was such a slob, she literally had a 1" build up on all the walls and shelves in this closet that held the W/D. It was the most disgusting thing -next to the birds' next, that I'd ever cleaned out.
They also have wall mounted units. BetterLintTrap

Ah, it's such a pain. Like I said, if it's an exterior wall, having a hole cut in is the better solution.

u/NotAHost · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

Not sure where your exhaust vent is on your dryer, but check something like this out, it may be slightly better than your current situation.

This one is a bit pricier, don't know how well it works, but should work well.
Filtered indoor vent

A lot are cheaper and use water... I'm assuming yours may do this already. Cheap ones tend to spew water out.

Here's a better one with steel filter and water.

u/AparentyImTheAsshole · 2 pointsr/DIY
u/SchnaapsIdee · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Sounds like you already tried a short metal connector but said it wouldn't fit. I'm surprised that you couldn't get the ruffled side in enough give you something to grip. Sometimes you need to get some pliers and manipulate the edges to get it to cram in.

But anyway, Maybe try something like this.

Even if the white plastic part doesn't fit in your hole you could saw that part off with a coping saw or something so it sits flush against the hole and attach it stud/drywall around the hole.

u/MicaBay · 2 pointsr/appliancerepair

Picture isn't working well.
Are you talking about this?

u/Shurafa · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

Well this is an interesting and unexpected tangent. This is the product we are using for venting. Curious to get your feedback on it.

It's an electric dryer. It seems as thought the exhaust is just steam and lint. Am I missing something?

Indoor Lint Trap Filter

u/AireyLynn · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

•What did you wish you knew or learned before owning your first house? Honestly, my husband is awesome and takes care of all these little things around the house. 1. Houses have filters for the air system if they have a central air unit. And if you're like me, change that thing often! I have allergies. 2. Depending on where you live, make sure there's nothing you need to do before winter comes. We live in the great white north so we make sure our spicket outside is set for winter. We accidentally left our hose out all winter last winter. 3. Get a Lint Brush for your dryer. When you notice your clothes aren't getting dry like they used to anymore, check for a huge lint monster! 4. If you have a sump pump (ours is under our stairs) check it regularly to make sure it's working. Especially before your rainy/wet seasons. Better to be proactive about maintenance then have a wet basement. That's our learning so far :)

•What the hell do I do for the next 30 days? How do I not poop myself out of stress and excitement? I can't help you there! Haha!

•What is the best way to pack? To purge stuff I don’t need? Do I just Kondo it all? Honestly yes, I would say purging while you pack will help when you get to the new house and start putting stuff away. You will always accumulate more things haha. Also in terms of packing label all your boxes with which room they go in, that way when you're hot and sweaty moving you don't have to think about where they go. And label them if they're fragile, so when your packing the truck you know which boxes shouldn't be on the bottom etc. Use garbage bags for clothes! Just grab a bunch on hangers and wrap a garbage bag around them instead of taking them off the hangers just to put them back on.

•How is the best way to move when you don’t have friends and don’t want to hurt yourself lol? Without hiring movers, then I would say that you want to get a big truck to fit everything at once so you only have to make one trip. If it's hot, drink lots of water, take lots of breaks.

•When should I reserve the Uhaul? The sooner the better to ensure you'll get the size truck you want.

•I know I need to set up water and trash and transfer utilities. When do I do that? Do it now. Call the companies, they're prepared and will just ask you when you close on your house, usually they will take care of the rest then.

•I’m gonna probably hire cleaners for our apartment just because I’m gonna be so busy. Any other apartment move-out tips? Nope! Did you document when you moved into your apartment for any damages that were already there? If so, I would find that just in case the apartment wants to blame you for that stuff.

•Any YouTube or book resources for home owning for idiots? Honestly we just youtube stuff as we go haha.

•Things we totally need that we didn’t know we’d need. The lint brush I told you before. Also 9V batteries because you'll have a ton of smoke detectors if it's a newer construction. If it isn't maybe look to see how many are in your house, do you think there's enough smoke detectors?

•How do I live with my very old MIL and not go insane? Oh no no, I can't help you there. My MIL would drive me bonkers!

•we have to landscape our own backyard. Where do I find a good person to pour my very simple concrete slab? I want a clover lawn because I’m allergic to grass. Is that stupid? I can't help you with the concrete, I have my husband find our people, but the clover lawn sounds amazing! I am also allergic to grass haha!



u/80000gvwr · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You are not allowed to have bird cages on dryer vents. It is a code thing. I highly recommend looking into a louvered cover for your dryer vent like this one. A properly functioning louver/damper/vent cap will keep birds out for the most part. However I will highly recommended you have your dryer vent cleaned annually if not biannually to keep an eye on that issue. You will be running into a gang full of more issues with a bird cover on it over time. PM me if you have any questions, I do this for a living.

Window Dryer Vent (Adjusts 24 Inch Through 36 Inch) by Vent Works

Could that fit in the top if it slides down? Nothing unsafe about just throwing it out but if the heats on forget trying to keep it in with that window open.

The ones with the condenser take a significantly longer time to dry. And lots more parts = less long term reliability

u/SonicPipewrench · 2 pointsr/jewelrymaking

If you are only using butane torches and a pickle pot, you may be able to get away without one, but it is healthier if you use ventilation. You are going to inevitably burn oils and other contaminants and that should not be going into your lungs.

A 200 CFM, 4" duct fan can be used with a dryer hose and a 'vent periscope' box to make a permanent in-window vent system. Add some duct insulation and it won't bleed heat. The basic setup is about $60.

My periscope box installed:

My vent setup:

I'm using Acetylene, and that gives off soot, so I *need* a vent system. I will probably add a stove hood from the remodelling surplus store just for better smoke collection.

u/Sands43 · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Because flex isn't going to seal well on the exterior wall. Galvanized sheet metal tube will allow you to seal the hole better.

The other trick is to have the exterior dryer vent pipe behind the washer. This makes installation of the dryer vent pipe not "blind".

Use one of these:


  • Install dryer and connect pipes, tape with UL listed aluminum tape.
  • Pipe is routed from behind dryer to behind the washer.
  • Install washer, since the hoses are flexible and it's easier to slide it back as you don't need to align anything.

    I'd get reports on service calls for dryers. The #1 issue for "won't dry well" is that the pipe was too short. The fix was to restrict the flapper on the outside by of the house by ~50% with a screw.
u/Qlanger · 2 pointsr/nova

As said its very easy to do. If you leave a deposit you are welcome to use my dryer cleaning tool. Just hook it up to a drill and it will clean it out well.

For those wondering what I and others are talking about its this...

u/BackyardAndNoMule · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

you can get a window duct and duct it out that way... that way you aren't recycling humidity into the room.

Also, clean your room. A clean space is a clean mind.

u/contractordude · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement
u/majesticjg · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Could you run it inside the wall, up and out the roof with something like this?

If I were you, I'd consider removing the exterior siding and window from that wall, since it's now an indoor wall, and switching it to drywall. Do exterior siding and windows on the outside of your home. This will also help make your add-on look less like an add-on.

If you pull the siding off, you can try to re-run the duct inside the wall while the wall is open.

u/j4ckofalltr4des · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Does the gas dryer get the clothes hot?

If so, the venting could be the issue. Most places Ive lived, The vent line ran through the house or garage to the front or rear of the house. Ive paid $50-$70 to have someone come out and clean out the dryer vent lines and its made a HUGE difference when they get clogged.

This is not needed if the outside vent is directly behind the dryer but you should still pull the dryer out and check there are no clogs in the line.

You can buy a DIY kit for about $20 USD

u/bkrassn · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

This maxxfan is under $185.

I'd question how well a simple little $30 fan will work. The Maxxfan is a known quantity. If you decide to go with what /u/biased_user_agent suggested I would actually go out the side instead of the roof. I think that may be easier to find an appropriate rain cover to prevent water ingress.

They make a terminal block kit that comes with new wires to splice into the harness. And of course you have to buy a new cord. If you are not comfortable splicing wires then you should call someone but it is an easy repair.

u/chrisbrl88 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

You cannot screen a dryer exhaust.

>M1502.2 Duct termination
Exhaust ducts shall terminate on the outside of the building or shall be in accordance with the dryer manufacturer’s installation instructions. Exhaust ducts shall terminate not less than 3 feet in any direction from openings into buildings. Exhaust duct terminations shall be equipped with a backdraft damper. Screens shall not be installed at the duct termination.

Replace the termination with a louvered cover. They are also available at Home Depot if you don't wanna order online.

u/nightlyjaunt · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Or you can add a vent trap kit to a regular dryer. It's basically a bucket of water that the air is ducted into. Obviously it requires some maintenance, but it's an option.

And a standard dryer hose and a custom “box” to fit to the back of the rack and have a 4” hole in the top (to benefit hot air rising) that goes to the fan then the vent.

u/Holly_Tyler · 1 pointr/ferrets

I've heard about dryer tubes from others so I ordered this: and it was half the price of a Marshall's thru-way. Unfortunately, it was also half the distance of the thru-way and the plastic was very thin. I recently had to throw it out because it was torn in places and the wire at the end was poking through and scratching them. Meanwhile, the stupid Marshalls tube has lasted years so I think it's worth the extra $.

Cereal boxes you say? Ok, I'm inspired. Sometimes I tape together beer boxes to make little forts for them to play it, but I'm thinking if I cut up the cereal boxes and roll them, tape then into a tube shape, they'd love it! I could even attach them to the beer box....

Am I a crazy ferret lady? Yes.

u/SheriffComey · 1 pointr/DIY

I had to get one of these last year.

Previous homeowners decided they hated the roof top vent that required a 6 inch straight piece to connect to the existing vent and instead they wanted one that was 90 degrees to that (new hole in the wall included). Well that worked for a smaller dryer because you could pull the dryer out and still have space in the laundry room. Anything bigger and you were crimping the vent hose and losing a LOT of drying ability while water pooled in the hose.

The one on amazon had a low profile 90^o exention on it that allowed me to easily reroute the line in about 20 minutes and significantly increased the drying ability.

I love DIYing but this is one of those things where I'd rather build a new cabinet or workbench than futz around with a dryer vent in my cramped ass laundry room for half a day.

u/LarsAlereon · 1 pointr/homeowners

The "idler pulley" for my Samsung dryer has worn out about once per year since I've had it, I recently found out that you can buy an aftermarket upgraded version with steel ball bearings that's supposed to be much more durable, it's around $15 compared to $10 for the original part with a plastic sleeve bearing. I swapped this in the last time the pulley wore out and so far it's working well.

Now the question is do i need to use any special PSU cables? Should I use the C19 ports on the PDU or are the standard C13 cables fine?

I plan on running 5 rigs, each rig is pulling about 750 from the wall when plugged into a standard 110 wall outlet.

u/weebernugget · 1 pointr/Plumbing

Maybe past owner tried to snake out the drain with some sort of rod system (the photo almost looks like a vent cleaner you would use for a dryer vent ) and it broke?

u/jlandon911 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

If the 5100 is too pricey, I would still recommend the 5301 before you go down to the 4000k or fantastic fan. Fantastic fans are prone to breaking and having this rain guard is a life saver. You don’t want water dripping through in the middle of the night whilst your asleep.

Plus, if there’s anything to not be stingy about, it’s your ventilation.

On Amazon i saw the 5100 was $210 and the 4000k was $130. You just gotta drop the extra $80 and know that it’ll be worth it completely.

Here’s that other one

If it’s super short, yeah you could do it like that... shove the vac tube into the dryer tube. But if it’s longer then that, you’ll need something like this:

Deflecto Dryer Duct Cleaning Kit, Lint Remover, Extends Up To 12 Feet, Synthetic Brush Head, Use With or Without a Power Drill

Turn your dryer on with the heat off, attach to power drill, and feed that in from the outside of the house.

Don’t clean flexible tube this way, only the “hard” sheet metal tube. You’ll be surprised at how much comes out.

This is also a common service provided by handymen.

u/Kontu · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Unhook from dryer, use one of these Deflecto Dryer Duct Cleaning Kit

u/Mortimer452 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

The dryer is likely fine.

Don't be surprised if your washer has some leaks. Our home actually has two washer/dryer hookups, we have a washer/dryer in both, but one pair is very seldom used. If the washer sits for more than a month or so unused, the bottom seal dries out and it drips/splatters water. I replaced the seal a few times; we finally decided to just stop using it altogether. The most expensive part of the repair was buying a special wrench to remove the tub nut. You'll probably need one too - research and make sure you get the right one for your model.

I would hook it up in your driveway first, plug it in with an extension cord and run it through a cycle to look for leaks. Just use a cheap hose splitter with a garden hose and hookup both hot and cold sides to your garden hose.

u/Stottymod · 1 pointr/ferrets

Ferrets do well in groups, and a friend is recommended if possible. We had a deaf girl, and she was the most adorable of the bunch, never had many health problems, and any she had could more likely be attributed to being the runt of the litter.

Is your vet a general vet or an exotic vet? Some veterinarians don't have much experience with ferrets.

What kind of temperature is she usually in, how old is she, and does she drag herself when walking? Energy levels could be a contributor.

Ferrets each like different things, and there are many things to try, but if she likes the tunnel, I suggest looking at clear plastic dryer tubing, Like this one

u/theoriginalharbinger · -2 pointsr/legaladvice

Different municipalities will have different standards.

I'd also add that an electric dryer doesn't vent any potentially harmful chemicals - just lint. There are solutions for this - like this - that solve the issue of interior venting.

I honestly would not sweat this.
