electric dryer (Canada)
WARNING
Improper grounding of the dryer may
cause serious injury or death. Check with
a licensed electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded.
For a grounded, cord-connected
dryer:
1. The dryer MUST be grounded. In the
event of a malfunction or breakdown,
grounding will reduce the risk of
electrical shock by providing a path of
least resistance for electrical current.
2. Since your dryer is equipped with
a power supply 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. If in doubt, call a licensed
electrician.
3 . DO NOT modify the plug provided with
this appliance. If it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.

1. The dryer is equipped with a three-
prong (grounding) plug for your
protection against shock hazard

appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances. If in
doubt, call a licensed electrician.
3 . DO NOT modify the plug provided with
this appliance. If it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
WARNING
Improper grounding of the dryer may
cause serious injury or death. Check with
a licensed electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded.
