Determine
vent path
Select the route that will provide the straightest and most
direct path outdoors.
Plan the installation to use the fewest number of elbows and
turns.
When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as
possible.
Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Use the fewest 90 ° turns possible.
Determine
vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance
Use the Vent system chart below to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations
acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified in
the Vent system chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
Shorten the life of the dryer.
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
The Vent system chart provides venting requirements that will
help to achieve the best drying performance.

NOTE: Side exhaust installations adds a 90 ° turn inside the
