Best vent for my Spendide??

I just bought a Splendide combo washer/dryer to install in my Cedar Creek. What is the best dryer vent setup to get? The dryer outlet on the back of the Spendide looks as if it would take some sort of large threaded type connection that I am not familiar with. Or do most folks just put on a flexible hose with hose clamp? Is the "drill here" spot they marked from the factory on my closet wall accurate for placement of the outside vent?

Thanks for any advice.

I installed a stacked unit and cut my hole without no X marks the spot. Cut right through a stud

Can anyone recommend a particular vent kit for my combo Splendide washer/dryer? It looks as if the outlet on the back of the unit takes a 3 inch vent line as opposed to a normal residential 4 inch line. Is that correct?

I just installed a vented Splendide and had to buy longer flexible vent tube-stuff. 4" is what I bought and it had no issue hooking onto the W/D and exterior Splendide wall kit.

I wish I had that much room when I installed my stacked unit

Vent on mine is exactly the same as the one I have at home. Which I bought at Lowes. Louvers and all. My unit did not have a drill here sticker, so I drilled a pilot hole inside and probed with a piece of wire locating the closest stud. Then drilled thru. Scariest thingmI have done in a long time, but easy. Just remember to pilot drill the screw holes too. Oh and use lots of tape outside to help prevent cracking the fiberglas.

As I remember there was an adapter for the 4" hose but the washer/dryer wouldn't fit in the closet with it on. I went to Lowes and bought a 2" thin adapter to move the hose to the side. At that point I put a hole in the floor and vented it down.

Barely drill through wall board then look for wires. My washer dryer wiring was directly behind the "X".
