nstallation Instructions
The following instructions will help guide you through the initial steps of setting up your dryer for use.
Please note that every section of this manual provides important information regarding the preparation
and use of your dryer, and it is important that you review this entire manual before proceeding with any
installation or use. More detailed instructions concerning electrical connections, gas connections, and
exhaust requirements are provided in other parts of this manual.
STEP 1 Positioning the Dryer.
Choose a location with a solid floor for your dryer.
Place the dryer at least eighteen inches above the
floor for a garage installation. After placing the
dryer in the desired location, please make sure that
it has the required clearances shown below and
sections on Exhaust and Maintenance requirements,
page10.
* Most installations require a minimum 5
(14 cm) clearance behind the dryer for the exhaust
vent with elbow.
Note
Leveling legs should be secured.
All four legs are stably placed on the solid and
even floor.
If dryer is not level, laundry may not tumble
properly and sensor will not detect the accurate
humidity information.
When leveling, please be cautious not to injure
your fingers and toes.
Certain minimum clearances are required
above, behind, and to the sides of the unit, as
shown below. Those required minimum clearances
are set forth in the picture below. Please keep the
following instructions in mind when installing in a
closet or recessed area:
• Consider allowing additional clearance for
installation and servicing.
• Wall, door, and floor molding may force additional
clearances.
• An additional inch of clearance is recommended to
minimize noise transfer .
• Consider space needed for companion appliances.
• For closet installations, the picture below shows the
minimum required ventilation openings for the door.
A louvered door with comparable ventilation openings
is also acceptable.
