7 EXHAUST CONNECTION

WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE OR PERSONAL INJURY:
• This clothes dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.
• Use only 4" rigid metal ducting for the home exhaust duct.
Use only 4" rigid metal or UL-listed flexible metal (semi-rigid
or foil-type) duct to connect the dryer to the home exhaust
duct. It must be installed in accordance with the instructions
found in "Connecting The Dryer To House Vent" on page 6 of
this manual.
Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, gas
vent, crawl space, attic, under an enclosed floor, or in any
other concealed space of a building. The accumulated lint
could create a fire hazard.
Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a
kitchen exhaust system. A combination of grease and lint
creates a potential fire hazard.
Do not use duct longer than specified in the exhaust length
table. Longer ducts can accumulate lint, creating a potential
fire hazard.
Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct. This will
cause lint to accumulate, creating a potential fire hazard.
Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners that extend
into the duct. These fasteners can accumulate lint, creating
a potential fire hazard.
Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.
Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust
system, especially at turns and joints. Exhaust system shall
be inspected and cleaned at least once a year.
