That being said, a tumble dryer will work without a vent hose if it's free standing. This is evidenced by the fact that many vented dryers didn't even used to come with a vent hose. They were commonly an optional extra. However, it is definitely much better to have one properly vented if possible.

How do you tape a dryer vent?

First, what you do not want to use is duct tape, the adhesive fails under the extreme temperatures. For dryer vents and HVAC ducts, you should seal seams with a foil backed tape. This is designed to be airtight and handle the temperature swings that would cause other types of tape to fail.
