Am I crazy?
« on: October 03, 2009, 11:51:58 PM »

Am I crazy or did LG make the dryer (DLG9588SM)exhaust a non standard size?  If you buy an off the shelf higher end vent hook up for your dryer to the wall that vents it to outside not one of them fit the dryer end either too small or too big.    We have to use a clamp and that is difficult because they practically gave no pipe area to clamp to.  Just thought I would ask if anyone else has had this problem.
