WARNING
To reduce the risk of severe injury or death, follow all installation instructions.
• Clothes dryer installation must be performed by a qualified installer.
• Install the clothes dryer according to these instructions and in accordance with local codes. In
the absence of local codes, installation must comply with National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSIZ223.1/NFPA 54 or the Canadian Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1.
• California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
This act requires the governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to
cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposure to such substances. Gas appliances can cause minor
exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and
soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuels. Properly
adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be
minimized further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.
• This dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.
• Use only 4" rigid metal ducting for exhausting the clothes dryer to the outdoors.
• DO NOT install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic ducting materials. If flexible metal (semi-
rigid or foil-type) duct is installed, it must be UL-listed and installed in accordance with the
instructions found in "Connecting The Dryer To House Vent" on page 6 of this manual. Flexible
ducting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed, and trap lint. These conditions will
obstruct dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire.
• Do not install or store this appliance in any location where it could be exposed to water and or
weather.
• Save these instructions. (Installers: Be sure to leave these instructions with the customer).
In the state of Massachusetts, installation must be performed by a qualified or
licensed contractor, plumber, or gasfitter qualified or licensed by the state.
