To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240 volt, 60 Hz, AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208 volt electrical
supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. Connect to an individual

WATER (STEAM MODELS ONLY) REQUIREMENTS
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses. Do not overtighten.
Damage to the coupling can result.
xhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the outside. 4" (102 mm)
diameter vent is required. Rigid or flexible metal exhaust vent
must be used. Do not use plastic or metal foil vet. Exhaust hood
must be at least 12" (305 mm) from the ground or any object that
may be in the path of the exhaust.
Determine vent path:
Select route that will provide straightest and most direct
Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns.
When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Use as few 90° turns as possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
Use following Vent System Chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified
in Vent System Chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
Shorten life of dryer.
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.

NOTE: Side and bottom exhaust installations have a 90° turn
inside the dryer. To determine maximum exhaust length, add
one 90° turn to the chart.
