agree with the type of gas available, contact your dealer or
call the phone numbers referenced in the "Assistance
or
Service" section of this manual.
LP gas conversion:
Conversion must be made by a qualified technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different
gas without consulting your gas company.
Gas supply line
Must include r/8" NPT minimum plugged tapping accessible
for test gauge connection,
immediately upstream of the gas
connection to the dryer (see illustration).
Must include a shutoff valve:
In the U.S.A.:
An individual manual shutoff valve must be installed within
six (6) feet (1.8 m) of the dryer in accordance with the National

burner Btu rating shown on the model/serial
number plate is
required for each 1,000 ft (300 m) above sea level.
Gas supply pressure testing
The dryer must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping
system during pressure testing at pressures greater than
1/2psi.
r/2" IPS pipe is recommended.
%" approved aluminum or copper tubing is acceptable for
lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m) if local codes and gas supplier
permit.
If you are using Natural gas, do not use copper tubing.
Lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m) should use larger tubing and a
different size adapter fitting.
If your dryer has been converted to use LP gas, %" LP
compatible copper tubing can be used. If the total length of
the supply line is more than 20 ft (6.1 m), use larger pipe.
NOTE: Pipe-joint compounds
that resist the action of LP gas
must be used. Do not use TEFLON °t tape.
