Exhaust system requirements, continued
WARNING
A clothes dryer must be exhausted outdoors.
Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney, a wall, a
ceiling, an attic, a crawl space or any concealed
space of a building. A clothes dryer produces
combustible lint. If the dryer is not exhausted
outdoors, some fi ne lint will be expelled into the
laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area
of the home can create a health and fi re hazard.
The dryer must be connected to an exhaust
outdoors. Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust
opening and remove any accumulation of lint
around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the
surrounding area.
WARNING
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 fi re hazard.
Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent
system, or use any screws, rivets or other
fasteners that extend into the duct to assemble
the exhaust system. Lint can become caught
in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging
the duct work and creating a fi re hazard as well
as increasing drying times. Use an approved
vent hood to terminate the duct outdoors, and
seal all joints with metal foil tape. All male duct
pipe fi ttings MUST be installed downstream
with the fl ow of air.
WARNING
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 fi re hazard, as well as increase drying
times.
