Hi Roy,

I presume you mean a clothes dryer - the size & shape of a washing m/c.

If so, put it into position near a suitable elec socket, extend vent tube & mark position of hole for vent and mark it (no kinking oooeerrr)

Then drill a big hole, making sure that there are no cables or pipes etc in the route.

The hole is best drilled in one go - core drill - borrow/ hire
or stitch drill it out then chop it out- hammer & chisel
