Explosion Hazard

install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
* Do not move dryer by grasping console.
* Rough handling or moving dryer over rough floor can
result in damage to leveling feet.
* Slide dryer onto cardboard or hardboard before
moving across floor.
1. Open dryer and remove any shipping tape that
secures the dryer drum. Remove all parts, packages,
and leveling feet.
2. Move dryer close to permanent location.
3. Install leveling legs:
* Take two of the cardboard corners from the carton
and place them on the floor in back of the dryer.
Firmly grasp the body of the dryer and gently lay it
back on the cardboard corners.
* Check leg for diamond marking. This is how far the
leg should go into the hole. Start to screw legs into

you reach the diamond mark.

stacked cardboard corner posts.
