LOCATION REQUIREMENTS

Check code requirements. Some codes limit, or do not permit,
installing dryer in garages, closets, mobile homes, or sleeping
quarters. Contact your local building inspector.
You will need:
A location allowing for proper exhaust installation. See
"Venting Requirements."
A separate 30 amp circuit.
If using power supply cord, a grounded electrical outlet
located within 2 ft. (610 mm) of either side of dryer. See
"Electrical Requirements."
Floor must support dryer weight of 200 lbs. (90.7 kg). Also
consider weight of companion appliance.
Cold water faucets located within 4 ft. (1.2 m) of the water fill
valves, and water pressure of 20 - 120 psi (138 - 827 kPa).
You may use the water supply for your washer using the "Y"
connector and short hose (if needed) which are provided.
Level floor with maximum slope of 1" (25 mm) under entire
dryer. If slope is greater than 1" (25 mm), install Extended
Dryer Feet Kit, Part Number 279810. If not level, clothes
may not tumble properly and automatic sensor cycles may
not operate correctly.
For garage installation, place dryer at least 18" (460 mm) above
floor. If using a pedestal, you will need 18" (460 mm) to bottom
of dryer.
The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will
be exposed to water and/or weather.
IMPORTANT: Do not operate, install, or store dryer where
it will be exposed to water, weather, or at temperatures below
40° F (4° C). Lower temperatures may cause dryer not to
shut off at end of automatic sensor cycles, resulting in longer
drying times.
Installation Clearances
For each arrangement, consider allowing more space for ease
of installation and servicing; spacing for companion appliances
and clearances for walls, doors, and floor moldings. Space
must be large enough to allow door to fully open. Add spacing
on all sides of dryer to reduce noise transfer. If a closet door
or louvered door is installed, top and bottom air openings
in door are required.
Check code requirements. Some codes limit, or do not permit,
installation of the dryer in garages, closets, mobile homes, or
sleeping quarters. Contact your local building inspector.
