Location Requirements

You will need:
A location allowing for proper exhaust installation.
See "Venting Requirements."
A separate 30-amp circuit for electric dryers.
A separate 15- or 20-amp circuit for gas dryers.
 I f you are using power supply cord, a grounded electrical
outlet located within 610 mm (2 ft.) of either side of dryer.
See "Electrical Requirements."
 A sturdy floor to support dryer and a total weight
(dryer and load) of 90.7 kg. (200 lbs). The combined weight
of a companion appliance should also be considered.
 L evel floor with maximum slope of 25 mm (1") under entire
dryer. If slope is greater than 25 mm (1"), install Extended
Dryer Feet Kit, Part Number 279810. If not level, clothes
may not tumble properly and automatic sensor cycles
may not operate correctly.
Do not operate your dryer at temperatures below 7°C (45°F).
At lower temperatures, the dryer might not shut off at the end
of an automatic cycle. Drying times can be extended.
The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where
it will be exposed to water and/or weather.
Check code requirements. Some codes limit, or do not permit,
installation of the dryer in garages, closets, mobile homes,
or sleeping quarters. Contact your local building inspector.
NOTE: No other fuel-burning appliance can be installed
in the same closet as a dryer.
Installation clearances:
The location must be large enough to allow the dryer door
to open fully.
Do not install behind a lockable door, a sliding door, or a door
with a hinge on the side opposite to that of the dryer in a way
that will restrict the full opening of the dryer door.
Most installations require a minimum 140 mm (5½") clearance
behind the dryer for the exhaust vent with elbow. See "Venting
Requirements."
