Thanks for that - this dryer is rear vented would you like to clarify what you are trying to actually do here?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The vent tube ie the black plastic duct within the machine. Does this need to be fixed to the front spigot or does it simply slide over it?
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

Ah got you now - it just slides over the front spigot and is held in place at the back by the locking clip that also slides into the tube. Many thanks for the clarification, would you now kindly rate the information given by selecting from the star rating system at the top of the page. Thanks for using JA and have a great day - Ian
