How do you fix a dryer vent hose that keeps falling off? My dryer vent hose is falling off. My laundry room gets hot because of the lint that collects on the floor when the dryer hose is disconnected. The dryer hose, which is flexible and can be disconnected from the wall at will, is flexible. Is there a step-by-step method to reconnect the dryer vent pipe?
The Purpose Of A Dryer Vent Hose: A dryer vent hose (or flex transition hose) moves the hot exhaust air from the dryer through the hose and expels it to the outside of your house or apartment. The hot exhaust from the dryer will fill the room with hot air and can be visible on the floor if either vent hose is lost (vent hose on dryer or vent hose at wall). Lint from your dryer can cause safety and efficiency problems as it can collect over time.
