dryer gas line


hello all,
so we had a dryer come the other day (Fry's) and the guys tried to install it. They realized the gas line in the wall was loose and when i grabbed it, it was clearly loose and can move from side to side a good inch or so. They told me that they have been told not to install on these because if they attempted to get the cap off of the line, they risk breaking the wall or anything behind the wall. So basically my wife and I are wondering what our options are. Is this something I can do on the outside of the wall? or is someone going to have to cut open the wall and somehow secure that pipe? It is a new home so I wonder if American Home Shield will cover this under our warranty.

Delivery drivers at any retailer is not allowed to hook up appliances. I would not worry about it, and hook it up. A inch is just their excuse of stating they have no clue what they are stating or doing.

dryer gas line


if installed properly the corrugated line should have been attached to the floor or wall with a stub out to secure it, but since it is a flexible tubing you can go ahead and hook it up with out any problems

What does it look like? Corrugated hose will act like a hose. Black pipe is rigid. Pics are best if you can get them
