Determine vent path:
Select route that will provide straightest and most direct
path outdoors.
Plan installation to use 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 as few 90° turns as possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
Use the 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 specified will:
Shorten life of dryer.
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.
The "Vent System Chart" provides venting requirements that
will help achieve best drying performance.
