Can you please clarify how to connect the dryer to the flex aluminum duct and then the flex duct to the original solid duct.  I have a transition flex duct that has a clamp at one end ... confusing. I was originally thinking that the flex duct is the male end at both sides ...

Great question. 
Flex transition hose (wire/foil or aluminum) generally or almost always goes over the hard pipe coming out of the back of the dryer and the hard pipe coming out of the wall or dryervent receptacle.  And at both locations, the best means of a secure connection is a worm drive clamp or large hose clamp.  We prefer stainless steel clamps.  Length: generally only use what you need, or in most cases about 4 feet of length is sufficient to make the connection and move dryer back into place. 

A great video online at YouTube is "Flex Hose Tips HD"  or link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yQXmq_BdUY
