Special
provisions
for mobile home installations
The exhaust vent must be securely fastened to a noncombustible
portion of the mobile home structure and must not terminate
beneath the mobile home. Terminate the exhaust vent outside.
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.
Vent system chart
NOTE: Side exhaust installations add a 90° turn inside the
laundry center. To determine maximum exhaust length, add one
90 ° turn to the chart.

1. Install exhaust hood. Use caulking compound to seal exterior
wall opening around exhaust hood.
2. Connect vent to exhaust hood. Vent must fit inside exhaust
hood. Secure vent to exhaust hood with 4" (10.2 cm) clamp.
3. Run vent to dryer location. Use the straightest path possible.
See "Determine vent path" in "Plan Vent System." Avoid 90 °
turns. Use clamps to seal all joints. Do not use duct tape,
screws or other fastening devices that extend into the interior
of the vent to secure vent.
Properly leveling your laundry center averts excessive noise and
vibration.
1. Check the levelness of the laundry center by placing a level
on the top edge of the washer, first side to side, then front to
back.
2=
If the laundry center is not level, prop up the front with a
wood block and adjust the feet up or down as necessary.
Remove wood block and lower laundry center. Repeat this
step until the laundry center is level.
