INSTALLATION INFORMATION

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRIC DRYERS

It is your responsibility:
• To contact a qualified electrical installer.
• To be sure that the electrical connections are
adequate and in conformance with the Na-
tional Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-latest
edition and all local codes and ordinances.
A copy of the above code standards can be
obtained from: National Fire Protection As-
sociation, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA
02269.
• To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single
phase, 120/240-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only electri-
cal supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208-volt elec-
trical supply, if specified on the serial/rating
plate) on a separate 30-ampere circuit, fused
on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
the wiring to an individual branch circuit.
• Do not use an extension cord.
• If codes permit and a separate ground wire
is used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path is
adequate.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Check with a qualified electrician if you
are in doubt as to whether the appliance
is properly grounded. Do not modify the
power supply cord plug. If it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment
grounding conductor can result in a risk
of electrical shock.
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will re-
duce the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer uses a cord having an equipment-
grounding conductor and a grounding plug.
The plug must be plugged into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and ground-
ed in accordance with all local codes and or-
dinances.
For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded
metal, permanent wiring system, or an equip-
ment-grounding conductor must be run with
the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the
dryer.
