Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently dry 
laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times and improve 
your energy savings.  See Installation Instructions.
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role in good 
air flow.

Do not use a plastic vent.

or fire.
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered by the 
warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless of who 
installed the dryer.
