2. Firmly grasp the body of the dryer (not the console panel).
Gently lay the dryer on the cardboard. See illustration.
3. Examine the leveling legs. Find the diamond marking.
4. Screw the legs into the leg holes by hand. Use a wrench to
finish turning the legs until the diamond marking is no longer
visible.
5. Place a carton corner post from dryer packaging under each
of the 2 dryer back corners. Stand the dryer up. Slide the
dryer on the corner posts until it is close to its final location.
Leave enough room to connect the exhaust vent.

Connect Vent

1. Using a 4" (10.2 cm) clamp, connect vent to exhaust outlet in
dryer. If connecting to existing vent, make sure the vent is
clean. The dryer vent must fit over the dryer exhaust outlet
and inside the exhaust hood. Check that the vent is secured
to exhaust hood with a 4" (10.2 cm) clamp.
2. Move dryer into its final location. Do not crush or kink vent.
3. (On gas models) Check that there are no kinks in the flexible
gas line.
4. Once the exhaust vent connection is made, remove the
corner posts and cardboard.

Level Dryer

Check the levelness of the dryer. Check levelness first side to
side, then front to back.
If the dryer is not level, prop up the dryer using a wood block.
Use a wrench to adjust the legs up or down and check again for
levelness.

following:
There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for
the dryer. Check that both fuses are intact and tight, or
that both circuit breakers have not tripped. If there is still
no heat, contact a qualified technician.
