EXHAUST SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Use only 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter (minimum) rigid or flexible
metal duct and approved vent hood which has a swing-out
damper(s) that open when the dryer is in operation. When the
dryer stops, the dampers automatically close to prevent drafts
and the entrance of insects and rodents. To avoid restricting the
outlet, maintain a minimum of 12 inches (30.5 cm) clearance
between the vent hood and the ground or any other obstruction.
The following are specific requirements for
proper and safe operation of your dryer. Failure to follow
these instructions can create excessive drying times and
fire hazards.
Do not use plastic flexible duct to exhaust the dryer.
Excessive lint can build up inside exhaust system and create a
fire hazard and restrict air flow. Restricted air flow will increase
dryer times. If your present system is made up of plastic duct or
metal foil duct, replace it with a rigid or flexible metal duct.
Ensure the present duct is free of any lint prior to installing
dryer duct.
If the dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint will be
expelled into the laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any
area of the home can create a health and fire hazard. The
dryer exhaust system MUST be exhausted to the outside
of the dwelling!
Do not allow combustible materials (for example: clothing,
draperies/curtains, paper) to come in contact with exhaust
system. The dryer MUST NOT be exhausted into a chimney, a
wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space of a building which can
accumulate lint, resulting in a fire hazard.
Exceeding the length of duct pipe or number of elbows
allowed in the "MAXIMUM LENGTH" charts can cause an
accumulation of lint in the exhaust system. Plugging the system
could create a fire hazard, as well as increase drying times.
Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent system, nor use
any screws or rivets to assemble the exhaust system. Lint can
become caught in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging
the duct work and creating a fire hazard as well as increasing
drying times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the duct
outdoors, and seal all joints with duct tape. All male duct pipe
fittings MUST be installed downstream with the flow of air.
Explosion hazard. Do not install the dryer
where gasoline or other flammables are kept or stored. If the
dryer is installed in a garage, it must be a minimum of 18 inches
(45.7 cm) above the floor. Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, fire or burns.
