Miele T9802 Vent Hose Keeps Popping Out
We had delivery of our Miele T9802 dryer on Friday. The vent hose is attached on the side with the Miele vent ring, to a metal elbow, to flexible venting hose which goes to the ceiling and out through the attic to roof vent. The dryer is working fine.
I called the dealer and they had no suggestions. I have not been able to contact Miele as yet.
The plastic ring that is supplied with the dryer, just fits into the dryer side vent hole and does not twist to lock into place, nor does it have any other method to permanently snug the fit.
What happens is the ring gets pushed, shaken or blown partially out of the hole in the side of the dryer and subsequently falls out and the exhaust moisture goes into our laundry room. As a temporary fix, I have taped the exhaust ring in place.
Has anyone contacted Miele for their advice on this matter, or come up with any viable permanent solutions?
