A separate 30-amp circuit.
A grounded electrical outlet located within 2 ft (610 mm) of
either side of the dryer. See "Electrical Requirements."
A sturdy floor to support the dryer weight (dryer and load)
of 115 lbs (52 kg). The combined weight of a companion
appliance should also be considered.
A level floor with a maximum slope of 1" (25 mm) under

Do not operate your dryer at temperatures below 45ºF (7ºC).
At lower temperatures, the dryer might not shut off at the end
of an automatic cycle. Drying times can be extended.
The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will
be exposed to water and/or weather.
Check code requirements. Some codes limit, or do not permit,
installation of the dryer in garages, closets, mobile homes, or
sleeping quarters. Contact your local building inspector.

The location must be large enough to allow the dryer door to
open fully.
