it is a natural gas machine & i had natural gas before i did clean out the vent as far as i could during hook up ,it does get warm but as i said before the machine stops after a while
would you suggest using it for one cycle without the venting hooked up to see if the vent is blocked - as the vent was pretty dirty in the section i cleaned !!
the machine is in the laundry room next to a walk out basement
i could open the door for the basement & use a fan to blow the exhaust out the basement door
as i cant smell & my wife is at work i think i would prefer to do this when she is home this evening i will let you know what the outcome is
