Electrical
requirements
Observe all governing
Codes
and Ordinances.
1 A two wire, single phase, 220 Volt,
50 Hz, AC only, electrical
power
supply is required on a separately
fused 15 Ampere circuit. [Time
delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended.)
2. An adequate
electrical
ground is
required within 4 feet of the
appliance
location when using the
grounding
wire supplied.
3. THE DRYER MUST BE CONNECTED
TO COPPER WIRE ONLY. Aluminum
wire must not be used to avoid
potentially
unsatisfactory
connections.
4. Local codes may permit the use
of a flexible type electrical
power
supply cord (pigtail). A suitable
strain relief must be provided
at the
point the power supply cord enters
the appliance.
5. The appliance
may be connected
directly to the fused disconnect
(or
circuit breaker) box through flexible
armored or non-metallic
sheathed
cable. Allow two or three feet of
slack in the line between
the wall
and the appliance
so that it may
be moved if servicing is ever
necessary
A suitable strain relief
must be provided
at each end of
the electrical
power supply cable
(at the appliance
and at the
junction box). Wire sizes and
connections
must conform with
the rating of the appliance
(15 Amperes). DO NOT use an
extension cord.

Exhaust
requirements
WARNING:
Metal
flexible duct may be used.
Non-metallic
flexible duct is
not
recommended
since it is a potential
fire hazard.
For Safety:
Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney,
furnace cold air duct, attic or crawl
space, or any other duct used for
venting. Accumulated
lint could
become
a fire hazard or moisture
could cause damage.
Clean the exhaust system
periodically,
at least every 2 years.
Never install flexible duct
concealed
in walls,
ceiling or under flooring.
Four Inch Metal Exhaust
Duct
is recommended.
(Do
not
use 3-inch exhaust due
Use Duct Tape
to seal all joints.
Exhausting the dryer outside
is
recommended.
If you cannot exhaust
the dryer to the outside, use Exhaust
Deflector Kit LCK4000 available
from
your Whirlpool
dealer
of the dryer back.
The
Exhaust Duct
can be routed
up, down, left, right or straight out
the back of the dryer.
Metal Flexible Duct
must be
fully extended
and supported
when the dryer is in its final
position. DO NOT KINK OR
CRUSH THE DUCT
An Exhaust Hood
should cap the
exhaust duct to prevent exhausted
air
returning into dryer The outlet of the
hood must be at least 12 inches from the
ground or anything
else that may be
in the path of the exhaust.
A 2% inch outlet Exhaust Hood
should
be used with short systems only. [This
outlet creates greater back pressure
than other hood types.)
Exhaust Hoods
with magnetic
latches
should
not
be used.
The
Maximum Length
of the exhaust
system depends
upon the type of duct
used, number of elbows and type of
exhaust hood. The maximum
length for
both rigid and flexible duct is shown
in chart.
EXHAUST HOOD
TYPE
I
Exhaust Systems
longer than specified
will:
l
Shorten the life of the dryer.
l
Reduce the performance
in ways
such as causing longer drying times
and increasing
the use of energy.
l
Accumulate
lint.
For
Exhaust Systems
not covered by
the exhaust length chart, see Whirlpool
Service Manual,
Exhausting Whirlpool
Dryers, Part No. 603197 available
from
your Whirlpool parts distributor The
back pressure in any exhaust system
used must not exceed
.6 inches of water
column measured with an inclined
manometer
at the point that the exhaust
system connects to the dryer
There are
Exhaust Kits
available
that
allow you to direct filtered exhaust air
inside to conserve energy during winter
months. Whirlpool has a Heat-Humidity
Saver Part No. 279427 which can be
used with Whirlpool dryers providing
their use does not violate national
or local codes. If you use one of these
kits, be aware that excessive moisture
in the home can cause many
problems and that you may see an
increase in the time required to dry
a load. Also, you must regularly clean
the filter to avoid excessive lint
build-up
which can affect the dryer's
performance.
NOTE: Do not
use this kit on a dryer
installed in a bedroom,
bathroom,
or
closet.

OF LINT AND MOISTURE FROM
ACCUMULATING AND TO MAINTAIN
