2.
Connect vent to exhaust hood
Vent must fit over the exhaust hood. Secure vent to exhaust
hood with 4" (102 mm) clamp. Run vent to dryer location using
straightest path possible. Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps to seal
all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws, or other fastening
devices that extend into interior of vent to secure vent,
because they can catch lint.
CONNECT INLET HOSE
(STEAM MODEL ONLY)
For non-steam models, skip to "Connect Vent."
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the
new inlet hoses (not supplied). Do not use old hoses.
NOTE: Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk
of hose failure. Record hose installation or replacement dates on
the hoses for future reference.
Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, or leaks are found.
1.
Turn cold water off, remove hose,
and replace rubber washer
Turn cold water faucet off and remove washer inlet hose.
Check and see if rubber washer is in the "Y" connector.
Remove old rubber washer from inlet hose and replace with
new rubber washer provided.

Attach short hose and
"Y" connector
Fig. A
If space permits, attach the female end of the "Y" connector
to the cold water faucet. See figure A.
If "Y" connector cannot be attached directly to the cold water
faucet, the short hose must be used. See figure B. Attach
short hose to cold water faucet. Screw on coupling by hand
until it is seated on faucet. Then attach "Y" connector to male
end of the short hose. Screw on coupling by hand until it is
seated on connector.

One end of the long hose has a wire mesh strainer inside the
coupling. Attach this end to the "Y" connector. Attach washer
cold inlet hose to other side of "Y" connector. Screw on
coupling by hand until it is seated on connector. Using pliers,
tighten the couplings an additional two-thirds turn.
