Use a new AGA or CSA approved flexible gas
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make

water column. Examples of a qualified person
include licensed heating personnel, authorized
gas company personnel, and authorized service

OBSERVE ALL GOVERNING CODES AND
• This installation must conform with local codes, or in
absence of local codes with the National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
• The design of this dryer has been certified by the CSA
International for use at altitudes up to 10,000 feet
(3048 m) above sea level at the B.T.U. rating indicated
on the model/serial plate. Burner input adjustments are
not required when the dryer is operated up to this
When installed above 10,000 feet (3048 m), a four
percent (4%) reduction of the burner B.T.U. rating
shown on the model/serial plate is required for each
1,000 foot (305 m) increase in elevation. For assistance
when converting to other gas types and/or installing
above 10,000 feet (3048 m) elevation, contact your
local service company.
• Check that dryer is equipped with the correct burner for
the particular type of gas used. Burner information can
be found on the serial/rating plate in the door well of
the appliance. If this information does not agree with
the type of gas available, see your dealer.
• This dryer is equipped for use with NATURAL GAS. It
is certified by CSA International for LR (propane and
butane) gases with appropriate conversion. No attempt
shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the serial/rating plate for use with a
different gas without consulting the serving gas
supplier. Conversion must be done by a qualified
service technician. Gas conversion kit part
numbers are listed on the gas valve burner base.
• Provide a rigid gas supply line of 1/2-inch IPS pipe or
1/2-inch approved tubing to the dryer location. If the
total length of the tubing is more than 20 feet (6.1 m),
larger tubing will be needed. Pipe-joint compounds
suitable for use with LR gas should be used.
• The supply line shall be equipped with a shutoff valve
installed within 6 ft. (1.8 m) of dryer in accordance with
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 -- latest
edition*. This valve should be located in the same room
as the dryer and should be in a location that allows
ease of opening and closing. Do Not block access to
the shutoff valve.
• If the dryer is installed in a confined area such as a
bathroom or closet, provision must be made for
enough air for combustion and ventilation. (Check
governing codes and ordinances, or refer to the section
of this instruction covering recessed and closet
• If local codes and ordinances permit, it is
that a new flexible gas connector,
by AGA or CSA, be used for
connecting the dryer to the gas supply line. (The gas
pipes which extend through the rear of the dryer are
3/8-inch pipe thread.)
• If rigid pipe is used as a gas supply line, a combination
of pipe fittings must be used to obtain an in-line
connection to the dryer.
