The Case of the Knackered Tumble-Dryer!

We couldn't work out why despite re-taping up all the joints, the tumble-dryer wasn't blowing or drying properly. Thankfully, on Friday while the legendary John H. was helping us to replace its broken drive-belt, he noticed that this piece of ducting (above) which is supposed to be beautifully rectangular, had completely failed. Although it was supposed to be heatproof, the exhaust from the tumble-dryer had shrunk it, until it was hardly letting any air through at all. Recycling wet-air repeatedly meant it wasn't drying much either!
