We recently moved into a new home, and the ductwork for the (as yet uninstalled) LG DLE3500W electric dryer is the flexible foil type. To avoid an additional bend in the duct, it runs across some electric wires. Assuming we eliminate the slack shown in the picture below, my questions are:
- Is foil ductwork okay here, or should I replace it with aluminum ducts?
- Is it okay for a dryer duct to be this close to electrical wiring, or does it need to be re-routed?
