DH and I would like to change our laundry closet to have a stacked washer and dryer. We currently have a Frigidaire Affinity, just need to get the dryer. I've been researching whether we needed any outlets/vents moved. A few q's. 1) the water supply/draining/plumbing is nicely recessed into the wall...BUT it is centered a few inches above the top of the washer. it is essentially exactly where the vent would be located on the dryer! Right now, all the hoses are all bunched up right in the path of where the venting needs to go. can this be tidied up to the side to accommodate the venting? this is a closet and i have very little extra inches, so just pushing the washer and dryer out to accommodate the mess behind is not an option. 2) because of said very little inches, i was thinking of using a dryer periscope for venting. can it be installed at an angle in a straight shot from the dryer to the vent? the vent is near the ground, maybe 8-12" to the left of the washer. all the pictures i've seen online have the periscope only horizontal or vertical. the description of the dryer periscope says it can go at any angle...but without seeing any installations using it at an angle, i wonder if there is a problem with doing so. 3) if the answer to #2 is yes, then i have another problem besides the hoses. the outlet for the washer is about 6 inches to the left of the water supply/plumbing. the power cord for the Affinity is not flat and the cord sticks out a lot from the wall. this too will get in the way of the venting. is it easy to replace the power cord to another one with a flat plug? not convenient to post a pic at the moment, but will try to if needed.
