INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
VENTING THE DRYER
WARNING:
TO reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Do not crush or collapse ductwork. Failure
to follow these instructions can result in fire
or death.
• Do not allow ductwork
to rest on or
contact
sharp objects.
Failure to follow these
instructions
can result in fire or death.
• If connecting to existing ductwork,
make
sure it is suitable and clean before installing
the dryer. Failure to follow these instructions
can result in fire or death.
• Venting must conform
to local building
codes. Failure to follow these instructions
can
result in fire or death.
• Gas dryers MUST exhaust to the outdoors.
Failure to follow these instructions can result
in fire or death.
• Use only 4-in. (10 cm) rigid or flexible metal
ductwork inside the dryer cabinet and
for venting outside. Failure to follow these
instructions
can result in fire or death.
• To reduce the risk of fire, combustion, or
accumulation of combustible gases, DO
NOT exhaust dryer air into an enclosed and
unventilated area, such as an attic, wall,
ceiling, crawl space, chimney, gas vent, or
concealed space of a building. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire
or death.
• To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT exhaust
the dryer with plastic or thin foil ducting.
Failure to follow these instructions can result
in fire or death.
• The exhaust duct must be 4 in. (10 cm) in
diameter with no obstructions. The exhaust
duct should be kept as short as possible.
Make sure to clean any old ducts before
installing your new dryer. Failure to follow
these instructions
can result in fire or death.
• Rigid or semirigid metal ducting is
recommended
for use between the dryer
and the wall. In special installations when
it is impossible to make a connection with
the above recommendations,
a UL-listed
flexible metal transition duct may be used
between the dryer and wall connection only.
The use of this ducting will affect drying
time. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire or death.
• DO NOT use sheet metal screws or other
fasteners which extend into the duct that
could catch lint and reduce the efficiency
of the exhaust system. Secure all joints
with duct tape. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.
• To maximize
operating
results, please
observe the duct length limitations
noted in
the chart on page 15. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.
• Ductwork is not provided
with the dryer.
You should obtain the necessary
ductwork
locally. The end cap should have hinged
dampers to prevent backdraft
when the
dryer is not in use. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.

Routing and Connecting
Ductwork
Follow the guidelines below to maximize drying
performance
and reduce lint buildup and
condensation
in the ductwork.
NOTE: Ductwork and fittings are NOT included
and must be purchased separately.
• Use 4-in. (10 cm) diameter rigid or semirigid
metal ductwork.
• The exhaust duct run should be as short as
possible.
• Use as few elbow joints as possible.
• The male end of each section of exhaust duct
must point away from the dryer.
• Use duct tape on all duct joints.
• Insulate ductwork that runs through unheated
areas in order to reduce condensation
and lint
buildup on duct surfaces.
IMPORTANT:
Failure to exhaust the dryer
correctly will void the dryer's warranty.
