Pre-Installation Requirements
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
• A clothes dryer must be exhausted
outdoors.
• DO NOT exhaust dryer into a
chimney, a wall, a ceiling, an attic, a
crawl space or any concealed space
of a building.
• A clothes dryer produces
combustible lint. If the dryer is not
exhausted outdoors, some fine lint
will be expelled into the laundry area.
An accumulation of lint in any area of
the home can create a health and fire
hazard.
• The dryer must be connected to an
exhaust outdoors.
• Regularly inspect the outdoor
exhaust opening and remove any
accumulation of lint around the
outdoor exhaust opening and in the
surrounding area.
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
• DO NOT allow combustible materials
(for example: clothing, draperies/
curtains, paper) to come in contact
with exhaust system. The dryer MUST
NOT be exhausted into a chimney, a
wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space
of a building which can accumulate
lint, resulting in a fire hazard.
• DO NOT screen the exhaust ends of
the vent system, or use any screws,
rivets or other fasteners that extend
into the duct to assemble the exhaust
system. No screen, grate, or guard
of any mesh
size is allowed
to cover the
exhaust
opening. Lint
can become
caught in the screen, grate,
guard, or on the screws or
rivets, clogging the duct work
and creating a fire hazard as well
as increasing drying times. Use
an approved vent hood to terminate
the duct outdoors, and seal all joints
with metal foil tape. All male duct pipe
fittings MUST be installed downstream
with the flow of air.
WARNING
Exceeding the length of duct pipe
or number of elbows allowed in the
"MAXIMUM LENGTH" charts can cause
an accumulation of lint in the exhaust
system. Plugging the system could
create a fire hazard, as well as increase
drying times.
