INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CONNECTING ELECTRIC DRYERS
,WARNING:
To help prevent fire, electric shock, serious injury, or death, the wiring and
grounding must conform to the latest edition of the National Electrical Code, ANSl/NFPA 70 and all
applicable local regulations. Please contact a qualified electrician to check your home's wiring and
fuses to ensure that your home has adequate electrical power to operate the dryer.
Electrical Requirements
for Electric MOdelS Only
WARNING:
TO reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• This dryer must be connected to a grounded
metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding
conductor must
be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding
terminal or lead on the dryer. Failure to do
so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
• The dryer has its own terminal block that
must be connected to a separate 240 VAC,
60-Hertz, single-phase
circuit, fused at 30
amperes (the circuit must be fused on both
sides of the line). ELECTRICAL SERVICE
FOR THE DRYER SHOULD BE OF THE
MAXIMUM
RATE VOLTAGE LISTED ON THE
NAMEPLATE. DO NOT CONNECT
DRYER TO
110-, 115-, OR 120-VOLT CIRCUIT. Heating
elements are available for field installation
in dryers which are to be connected to an
electrical service of a different voltage than
that listed on the rating plate. Failure to follow
these instructions
can result in fire, explosion,
or death.
If branch circuit to dryer is 15 ft. (4.5 m)
or less in length, use UL (Underwriters
Laboratories)
listed No.-10 AWG wire
(copper wire only), or as required by local
codes. If over 15 ft. (4.50 m), use UL-listed
No.-8 AWG wire (copper wire only), or as
required by local codes. Allow sufficient
slack in wiring so dryer can be moved from
its normal location when necessary. Failure
to do so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
The power cord (pigtail) connection between
wall receptacle and dryer terminal block
IS NOT supplied with dryer. Type of pigtail
and gauge of wire must conform to local
codes and with instructions on the following
pages. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
A 4-wire connection is required for all mobile
and manufactured
home installations, as
well as all new construction after January
1, 1996. A 4-wire connection must be used
where local codes do not permit grounding
through the neutral wire. Failure to do so can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
Special Electrical Requirements for MoDile or Manufactured Homes
,WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Any installation in a manufactured
or mobile
home must comply with the Manufactured
Home Construction
and Safety Standards
Title 24 CFR, Part 32-80 or Standard CAN/
CSA0Z240 MH and local codes and ordinances.
• A 4-wire connection is required for all mobile
and manufactured
home installations, as well
as all new construction after January 1, 1996.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion,
or death.

,WARNING:
• Connect
the power
cord to the terminal
block. Each colored
wire should
be connected
to
same color screw. Wire color indicated
on manual
is connected
to the same color screw
in block.
Failure to follow these instructions
may result in a short or overload.
• Grounding
through
the neutral
conductor
is prohibited
for: (1) new branch-circuit
installations,
(2) mobile
homes,
(3) recreational
vehicles,
and (4) areas where
local
codes
prohibit
grounding
through
the neutral
conductor.
Four-wire Connection for Electric Dryers: Power Cord
• A 4-wire connection
is required for all mobile
and manufactured
home installations, as well
as all new construction
after January 1, 1996.
• A UL-listed strain relief is required.
• Use a 30-amp, 240V, UL-listed power cord
with #10 AWG-minimum
copper conductor
and closed loop or forked terminals with
upturned ends.
