Can Flexible Air Ducts or Connectors be used to vent clothes dryers?

No.  The International Mechanical Code & Residential Code state that "Exhaust ducts for domestic clothes dryers shall be constructed of metal and shall have a smooth interior finish...." Additionally, most if not all appliance manufacturers also state this in their installation instructions.  Often, the clothes dryer warranty is void if it is not vented properly.  None of our flexible duct products can be used to vent clothes dryers.
