PRODUCT MODEL NUMBERS
Gas supply: This dryer is equipped for use with
natural gas. It is designed-certified by CSA
International for L.P. (propane or butane) gases
with appropriate conversion. When rigid pipe is
used it should be 1/2" IPS. When acceptable to the
gas supplier and local codes, 3/8" approved tubing
may be used for lengths under 20 feet. For lengths
over 20 feet, larger tubing should be used. Pipe-
joint compounds resistant to the action of L.P. gas
must be used. If local codes permit, it is
recommended that new flexible metal tubing,
design-certified by CSA, be used for connecting
the appliance to the rigid gas supply line. (The gas
pipe which extends through the lower rear of the
appliance has 3/8" male pipe thread.) An individual
manual shutoff valve must be installed within 6
feet of the dryer in accordance with the National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
Electrical: A four-wire or three-wire, single
phase, 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, electrical supply
is required on a separate 15 or 20 amp circuit,
fused on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse
or circuit breaker is recommended.
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the
outside. Four-inch diameter vent is required. Rigid
or flexible metal exhaust vent must be used. Do
Not use plastic or metal foil vent. Exhaust outlet
hood must be at least 12" from the ground or any
object that may be in the path of the exhaust.

1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most direct path outdoors. Plan
the installation to use the fewest number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or
making turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Avoid 90° turns.
2. Determine vent length.
The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon:
• The type of vent (rigid metal or flexible metal).
• The number of elbows used.
• Type of hood.
See the exhaust vent length chart that matches your hood type for the maximum vent
lengths you can use.
3. Determine the number of elbows you will need.
IMPORTANT: Do not use vent runs longer than specified in the Vent Length Chart.
In the column listing the type of metal vent you are using (rigid metal or flexible metal),
find the maximum length of metal vent on the same line as the number of elbows.
