kinking.
Flexible metal vent
Flexible metal vents are acceptable only if accessible for
cleaning.
Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported
when the dryer is in its final location.
Remove excess flexible metal vent to avoid sagging and
kinking that may result in reduced airflow and poor
performance.
Do not install flexible metal vent in enclosed walls, ceilings or
floors.
