Rigid or Flexible metal venting is recommended for use on all dryers. Other material (aluminum foil, plastic) are NOT recommended because they can easily collapse or be crushed. See images below:

A dryer vent test, part #8522199, is available for dryers with top mounted lint screens. This vent test kit will help you to determine if the venting is restricted and needs to be cleaned. To order, contact Customer Service.
