Recommended
grounding method
For your personal
safety, this appliance
must
be grounded.
This appliance
is equipped
with a power
supply cord having
a 3-prong
grounding
plug.
To minimize
possible shock
hazard,
the cord must be plugged
into a
mating
3-prong
grounding-type
wall
receptacle,
grounded
in accordance
with
the National
Electrical
Code,
ANSVNFPA
70 -

Fire/Health
Hazard
l
Do Not use non-metal,
flexible
duct.
l
Do Not use metal duct smaller than
four inches in diameter.
l
Do Not Use exhaust
hoods with
magnetic
latches.
l
Check
that exhaust
system is not
longer than specified.
Exhaust
systems longer than specified
will:
- Accumulate
lint.
- Shorten the life of the dryer.
- Reduce
performance,
resulting
in
longer drying times and increased
energy
usage.
Failure to follow specifications
may
result in a fire.
l
Do Not exhaust
dryer into a chimney,
furnace
cold air duct, attic or crawl
space,
or any other duct used for
venting.
l
Clean the exhaust
system every other
year.
l
Do Not install flexible
duct in
enclosed
walls, ceilings
or floors.
Accumulated
lint could
result in a fire or
cause moisture
damage.
l
Exhaust the dryer outside to prevent
exposure
to substances
in the gas
fuels and combustion
which may be
harmful to your health.
The moisture
and lint indoors may
cause:
- FIRE HAZARD from lint collected
in
dryer;
- Moisture damage
to woodwork,
furniture,
paint, wallpaper,
carpet,
etc.
- House cleaning
problems
and
possible
health problems.
Failure to follow these instructions
could
result in fire damage
or personal
injury.
Use duct tape to seal all joints.
For mobile
home installation,
the dryer must
have an outside exhaust.
If you exhaust
the
dryer through
the floor and the area under
your mobile
home is
enclosed,
the exhaust
system must terminate
outside the enclosed
area.
Extension beyond
the enclosure
will
prevent
lint and
moisture
build-up
under
the mobile
home.
The exhaust
duct can be routed
up, down.
left, right or straight out of the back of the
dryer. Detailed
space
requirements
can be
found in "Recessed
and closet installation
instructions"
on the back cover.
Metal flexible
duct
should be fully extended
and supported
when the dryer is in final
position.
DO NOT KINK OR CRUSH THE DUCT.
The metal flexible
duct must be completely
open to allow adequate
exhaust
air to flow.
An exhaust
hood should cap the exhaust
duct to prevent
exhausted
air from returning
into dryer.
The outlet of the hood must be at
least 12 inches from the ground
or anything
else that may be in the path of the exhaust.
The exhaust
outlet is located
at the bottom
center
back of the dryer.
Detailed
space
requirements
can be found
in the "Recessed
and closet installation
instructions"
on the back cover and on back
panel
of dryer.
The maximum
length of the exhaust
system
depends
upon the type of duct used,
number
of elbows
and type of exhaust
hood.
The maximum
length for both rigid
and flexible
duct is shown in chart.

The back pressure in any
exhaust
system used must not exceed
0.6
inches of water
column
measured
with an
incline manometer
at the point that the
exhaust
duct connects
the dryer.
4-inch outlet hood is preferred,
however,
a
2-l /2 inch outlet may be used with short
systems only. (This outlet creates
greater
back pressure than other hood types.)
