Help please, My new appliances arrived for my new home. The dryer venting makes the dryer stick out from the wall too much. Is there something availabe to correct this. The dryer is placed against a back wall and vents directly outside but the dryer vent and hole out through brick doesn't line up. Thanks

When you say they don't line up, do you mean as far as height or do you mean left and right? If you mean the dryer is not high enough you could always put the dryer up on wood blocks. I needed to do this at an old house. I needed the height of a 2x4.

Remember if the dryer gets pushed back or vibrates back you may crimp the venting and the air wouldn't be able to get out. This would be called a fire hazard. That's what kept happening to my dryer.

Good luck,

Some dryers can be converted to vent out one of its sides rather than the back to allow it to be pushed flush against the wall.

Whether yours can or not would depend on its brand and exact model number. You can find tips for locating the model and serial number tag *right on the appliance* in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below.
