The whole object of the post was that the plastic white vent tubing may well have been done away with by new machine manufacturers.
So if you have to change your dryer the existing tube will have to be change and the fitting at the outer end of the vent may not be suitable.
Until this year you could get white goods delivered and installed and old taken away. No longer they just deliver to your door and pick up the old. They will not come within 2 mtrs. of you property entrance. You have to do the taking out of old and put outside and then take in the replacements and fit yourself.
A washing machine would be a big problem if you could not do the work yourself. Yes no doubt you can get a store to do it but that would be more expensive.
I am given to understand that in some cases where a tradesman has to come into your property you almost have to vacate it or go up to a bedroom out of the way.
We always do any works ourselves as far as possible only exception is where certification of gas or electric required. Plus skilled trades like plastering etc.
