Assuming you also have the necessary electrical outlet for the motor/controls already installed there, then the hookup should run about $75-150 depending on your local labor costs - obviously lower end in rural and deep south areas, higher end on west coast, northeast, and large higher-cost urban areas. Plus maybe $10-40 in materials for the cost of the connecting duct from dryer to the vent hose, if vent hose does not reach all the way to the port on the back of the dryer.


This assumes flexible vent hose is legal in your area, and does not have to be replaced with rigid metal duct. The California Mechanical code requires rigid metal duct through the structure, but does allow up to a 6 foot flexible UL approved dryer connecting hose from dryer to duct - don't know about your town though. My recommendation - get rid of the flex duct and replace with metal duct with adjustable elbows to connect to the in-floor or in-wall ducting - far better fire resistance and reduces the friction and lint-accumulation potential a lot too. Should be installed with non-cumbustible spacers to keep it up off the floor if floor is combustible (basically anything but concrete or stone/tile).


Your Search the List category is Appliance Repair - Large, unless you are buying a new unit, in which case most appliance stores (as opposed to general box stores like Walmart) will install it for from $0-75 typically - generally higher end delivery and setup for the cheaper machines, and commonly free for machines over about $500 or so.
