1.
Take tape off front corners of
dryer. Open dryer and remove the
literature and parts packages. Wipe
the interior of the drum thoroughly
with a damp cloth.
2.
Take two of the cardboard
corners from the carton and place
them on the floor in back of the dryer.
Firmly grasp the body of the dryer
and gently lay it on its back on the
cardboard corners.
3.
With one of the legs in hand,
check the ridges for a diamond
marking. That's how far the leg is
supposed to go into the hole.
4.
Start to screw the leveling legs
into the holes by hand. (Use a small
amount of liquid detergent to
lubricate the screw threads so it is
easier to turn the legs.) Use a 1-inch
wrench or socket wrench to finish
turning the legs until you reach the
diamond mark.
Now stand the dryer up.
Slide dryer onto cardboard or
hardboard before moving across floor
to avoid damaging floor covering.
5.
Move dryer close to final
position. Remove cardboard or
hardboard from under dryer.
