Is this gas ball valve safe?

How does it look where it connects to the dryer, is it setup so it won't crush the flex csst hose against the wall if the dryer is bumped?

Yeah, no pilot light on this one (new LG front-loading pair)... the dryer works great and we've checked all connections several times for leaks... used Harvey's thread compound and gas leak spray.

And our setup leaves the washer and dryer about 8" or 9" from the wall, so there's plenty of room without worrying about the gas line on the back of the dryer. There's probably 4" to 5" between the hose and the wall.

Thanks again for the advice, everyone. Thanks to you, I didn't make a huge mistake by attaching that new valve to the old flare... which means my setup is safer and more attractive.

Glad to hear it worked out. Sorry I didn't get a chance to post the photos. But sounds like it all worked out well!

Merry Christmas.

I still ask why it has a tee connected to the large white pipe. Is that the main feed and the vertical 1/2" feeds something else.
