Bought a bank owned condo but can't find the vent. Called the HOA but HOA know nothing. Doesn't code require home have to have vent? If yes, how to find the vent behind the walls?

If the bathroom has a window, a bathroom exhaust vent is not required. Crack a window.

Code would not require vents installed. Do you have a utility closet ? You may have to have a contractor install for the dryer. Hopefully they did not previously exhaust into the attic or underneath the complex.

They sell ventless dryers that are less efficient.

The dryers in my condo unit are ventless when we got new roof a few years ago we gave owners option to pay extra for a vent. Those who did not have to wait till next roof.

Condo square footage is at premium. Check out the automatic washer/ dryer in one. The dryer is a part of washer machine and is condensing- no vent needed: you have totally re- learn how to do your laundry.
Basically you wash your dirty clothes and linen the moment you take them off, a bit at a time,like every day or every 2-3 days you may need to wash something.
The advantages: very economical on water and electricity, very gentle on clothes, no humpers full of dirty towels and clothes, no big laundry day.
Not for everyone though- people don’t like to learn new things.
LG has 2 different sizes.

In 1968 it was probably built as an apartment and did not have washer and dryer. Tenants were expected to go to the Laundromat, or the laundry room in the basement. Condos were practically nonexistent in Dallas in 1968.
