ELECTRIC DRYER ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
(U.S.A. ONLY) (ETATS-UNIS SEULEMENT)
It is your responsibility:
[] To contact a qualified electrical installer.
[] To be sure that the electrical
connection is adequate and in
conformance
with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
[]
[]
[]
[]
[]
The National Electrical Code requires a 4-wire power
supply connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits
involved in remodeling
after 1996, and all mobile home
installations.
A copy of the above
code standards
can be obtained
from:
National
Fire Protection
Association,
One Batterymarch
Park, Quincy,
MA 02269.
To supply
the required
3 or 4 wire, single
phase,
120/240
volt, 60 Hz., AC only electrical
supply
(or 3 or 4 wire,
120/208
volt electrical
supply,
if specified
on the serial/
rating
plate)
on a separate
30-amp
circuit,
fused
on both
sides of the line. A time delay fuse or circuit
breaker
is
recommended.
Connect
to an individual
branch
circuit.
Do not have a fuse in the neutral
or grounding
circuit.
Do not use an extension
cord.
If codes permit
and a separate
ground
wire
is used, it is
recommended
that
a qualified
electrician
determine
that
the ground
path
is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your dryer, you must determine
the type
of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
instructions
provided for it here.
[] This dryer is manufactured
ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground conductor
is permanently
connected to the neutral conductor
(white
wire) within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire
electrical supply connection,
the neutral ground conductor
must be removed from the external ground connector
(green screw), and secured under the neutral terminal
(center or white wire) of the terminal
block. When the
neutral ground conductor
is secured under the neutral
terminal
(center or white wire) of the terminal
block, the
dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral conductor.
[]
If local codes do not permit the connection
of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection"
section.
[]
A 4-wire power supply connection
must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor
is prohibited.
Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited
for (1) new branch-circuit
installations
and (2) areas where local codes prohibit grounding
through
the neutral conductor.

GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
[] For a grounded, cord-connected
dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer uses a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
[] For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding
terminal or lead on
the dryer.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
