Install exhaust hood and use caulking compound to seal
exterior wall opening around exhaust hood.
2.
Connect vent to exhaust hood
Vent must fit over the exhaust hood. Secure vent to exhaust
hood with 4" (102 mm) clamp. Run vent to dryer location
using straightest path possible. Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps
to seal all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws, or other
fastening devices that extend into interior of vent to secure
vent, because they can catch lint.

Flared
male fitting
Remove red cap from gas pipe. Using a wrench to tighten,
connect gas supply to dryer. Use pipe-joint compound
on threads of all non-flared male fittings. If flexible metal
tubing is used, be sure there are no kinks.
NOTE: For LP gas connections, you must use pipe-joint
compound resistant to action of LP gas. Do not use
TEFLON
