The dryer vent kit from FAMCO arrived in a sturdy box with logo on the outside. Upon opening the box we realized the door flap hinge plugs was broken. I believe this is still usable and can be fixed relatively easily, however we already had an outside vent in place and decided not to mess around with this one to much as it is winter where we are and tons of snow on the ground.
We did however install the hose. My son just recently moved into a small cabin and bought a used dryer from an online marketplace. So while the home had an outer vent in place, the used dryer did not include a hose.
We proceeded to attach the hose to the interior opening of the outside piece, which amazingly was the exact size of the one we received from FAMCO. They were both at a 4inch diameter. This was perfect.
The hose piece included two clamps, one for the wall mount and one for the dryer opening. These fit very snugly and took a little elbow grease to get them to attach to the pipe opening but once in place with the clamps slightly pinched to help secure the hose did not slide off, the dryer was ready for use!
The little broken plastic connector that holds the pin from the hinge is the only obstacle we came across. I am sure the company would/could provide a new piece, but again, it is an easy fix and we are satisfied with this product otherwise and chose not to contact them.

such an easy little kit! My husband is an appliance repair tech and even he likes this little kit!
Thanks for recommending. And I hope they would give the missing piece as soon as they could.
The dryer vent kit from FAMCO looks great! I will definitely check it out.
I like that this vent looks easy to install and sturdy. It is good when products are worth the price paid for them.
Sounds to be a great brand. I will remember this for the future!
It’s so frustrating when you open a package and find something inside is broken.
I really don’t know much on this but this does look like a good brand so I’ll keep it in mind
I don’t have much knowledge about this but reading this makes me learn something new.
This got me into thinking. We must check our dryer vent and see if it needs cleaning or we need a new one.
I have been hearing more about cleaning dryer vents and want to make sure ours is up to par. It sounds like this kit makes the process easy.
I’ve never heard of this brand but from the review it seems it is a good brand. I will check it out.
The vent is as important as the whole machine when drying clothes. That system looks like a great way to save the life of your dryer.
I need one of these. I know my dryer needs to be cleaned.
This looks like something that even I could do! Thanks for the great info!
Looks like a good brand. We might be in the market for a replacement, so I will keep this in mind.
I love how easy this kit is to install. The flexible hose is great. Our vent system is metal tubing, and it’s such a pain.
We have a flush dryer vent too and we love it! This looks like a great brand.
