In the plumbing world this is fine. However it might not be fine with your dryer. You will need to read the manual or call the manufacturer to get an answer. I don't foresee a dryer using a steaming feature needing more than a 1/8" line but who knows if there is some sort of pressure rating needed. It is probable that the manufacturer doesn't use 1/8" ...

Spent hours on internet. Hours and hours. Looked at all the manuals, etc. The washer has two clips, easy to get to. But the dryer? How? Where? First, on the back, remove two small screws at the top of the console. Then see the pic.

If you have a very dry climate and an electric dryer, vent it right in the laundry room (you can add an ...

I'm guessing nobody in here uses a humidifier in the winter? (Screw weighing your clothes before and after drying... measure the amount of water multiple tanks you may use daily goes into the house and the fact your being inefficient while doing so) I have to laugh at all the people going crazy about NVR VENT INDOORS. I run an indoor line (with ...

Yes, that's considered safe. The operating temperature of a dryer vent is not a problem for direct wood contact. Keep the vent clear and you'll have no fire. Ensure all joints are foil taped, so lint does not escape from the pipe. Should lint escape the pipe, it can build up in the wall. Use a "long sweep" elbow to make the vent easier to clean out. ...
