"Venting Requirements."
A separate 30 amp circuit.
If you are using a power supply cord, a grounded electrical
outlet located within 2 ft (61 cm) of either side of the dryer.
See "Electrical Requirements."
A sturdy floor to support the total dryer weight of 250 Ibs
(113.4 kg). The combined weight of accessories,
clothes
loads and companion appliances should also be considered.
A level floor with a maximum slope of 1" (2.5 cm) under entire
dryer. Clothes may not tumble properly and automatic sensor
cycles may not operate correctly if dryer is not level.
For a garage installation, you will need to place the dryer at
least 18" (46 cm) above the floor. If using a pedestal, you will
need an additional 7" (17.8 cm).
Do not operate your dryer at temperatures
below 45°F (7°C). At
lower temperatures,
the dryer might not shut off at the end of an
automatic cycle. This can result in longer drying times.
The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will
be exposed to water and/or weather.
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.

spacing
The following spacing dimensions are recommended
for this
dryer. This dryer has been tested for spacing of 0" (0 cm)
clearance on the sides, front and rear. Recommended
spacing
should be considered for the following reasons:
The location must be large enough to allow the dryer door to
open fully.
Additional spacing should be considered for ease of
installation and servicing.
Additional clearances might be required for wall, door and
floor moldings.
Additional spacing should be considered on all sides of the
dryer to reduce noise transfer.
Companion appliance spacing should also be considered.
NOTE: This dryer cannot be stacked on the washer.
