I NEED TO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE VENTING OF MY MAYTAG

Customer Question
I NEED TO KNOW...

I NEED TO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE VENTING OF MY MAYTAG NEPTUNE DRYER MODEL mde4000aYW

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I'M NOT SURE SINCE WE PURCHASED IT USED ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO SO IM GUESSING 10 YEARS OLD.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

WHAT i NEED IS A WRITTEN SPEC STATMENT THAT SAYS WHETHER i NEED AN ACCESSORY FAN IN THE VENT FOR A VENET PIPE THAT IS 13.5 FEET LONG TO PASS AN INSPECTION FOR MY REMODEL HOUSE PERMIT.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

WE BOUGHT AN ACCESSORY FAN BUT IN THE INSTALLATION INFO FOR THAT FAN IT SAYS YOU SHOULDN'T USE IF YOUR VENTING IS LESS THAT 15 FEET TO THE DRYER

Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 8 months ago

Attached is the literature explaining the dryer capabilities. That being said, the vent fan states not to use the fan if the venting is less than 15 feet because it wont be beneficial. But that distance needs to be calculated with elbows and such because each 90 degree elbow after it exits the back of the dryer counts as 5 feet.
