The "Vent System Charts" provide venting requirements
that will help achieve best drying performance.
* For Model WGD71HEW only; for all other models, refer to the
Standard Vent System Chart above. To nd your model number,
refer to the model and serial number plate in the inner door well.
NOTE: For long vent systems, use of box/louvered hoods will
improve venting regardless of length.
Install Vent System
Install exhaust hood and use caulking compound to seal
exterior wall opening around exhaust hood.
Vent must t over the exhaust hood. Secure vent to exhaust
hood with 4" (102 mm) clamp. Run vent to dryer location using
straightest path possible. Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps to seal
all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws, or other fastening
devices that extend into interior of vent to secure vent,
because they can catch lint.
CONNECT INLET HOSE
(STEAM MODEL ONLY)
For non-steam models, skip to "Connect Vent."
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the
new inlet hoses (not supplied). Do not use old hoses.
NOTE: Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk
of hose failure. Record hose installation or replacement dates on
the hoses for future reference.
Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, or leaks are found.
Turn cold water faucet off and remove washer inlet hose.
Remove old rubber washer from inlet hose and replace with
new rubber washer.
