Washer/Dryer combo

I just bought what I thought was a good deal. I bought a Splendide 2000 w/d vented combo. Every thing works and the wife is happy but I now have a problem. The vent fitting coming out of the back does not fit the vent hose,I picked up the HEAVY DUTY flex alu. hose and the clamp will not compress the hose to the fitting. The fitting has female spigot threads? I need to turn 90* ASAP, is there a special fitting that I need or should I just buy the "tin foil" vent hose? Also should the vent hose be level or have a slight slope in it?

Should have bought the optional bent kit for the washer dryer combo. Would have made it easier

Humm; I have that same Splendide model. The dryer vent outlet is smooth 4" metal, which the vent hose/flexible pipe fits snugly. I replaced the vent hose with the spare I had for our stixNbrix dryer, so they are the same size. It's hard to visualize what your described.

Standard 3" dryer hose should clamp to the OD of the plastic fitting you have pictured. Don't worry about the threads on the ID. Our dryer uses fabric hose, or you can use the metalized, flexible hose. I suspect the heavy aluminum hose you are trying to use will not compress enough, and it possibly won't be able to make the tight bends behind the dryer that it needs to make.

Slope does not matter. Our hose hangs down in a loop, and it does not collect moisture.
