Firstly.,..welcome back Bob!

To add to Bob's excellent summary of venting science, modern (since about 1988) dryers do not do a good job of pushing upwards. Many modern homes have the laundry room stuck well away from an outside wall, necessitating a long run which often contains an upward run of some kind. Root of the problem is that the house builders do not talk to people like us in the appliance repair trade. They do not, AFAIK, talk to the appliance manufacturers.

Finally, great point re the fire extinguisher. I can't honestly recall ever seeing one in a laundry room on my travels...anyone?

Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.
