IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Use a heavy metal vent. Do not use plastic or metal foil vent.
Rigid metal vent is recommended to prevent crushing and
Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported when
the dryer is in its final position. Remove excess flexible metal vent
to avoid sagging and kinking that may result in reduced airflow
and poor performance.
An exhaust hood should cap the vent to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the home or business.
Exhaust hood must be at least 12" (30.5 cm) from the ground or
any object that may be in the path of the exhaust (such as
flowers, rocks or bushes).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length
of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal or
flexible metal vent.
Plan installation to use the fewest number of elbows and turns.

Allow as much room as possible when using elbows or making

straight out the back of the dryer.

bathroom or closet, provision must be made for enough air for
combustion and ventilation. (Check governing codes and
ordinances.) See "Recessed Area and Closet Installation
Instructions" in the "Location Requirements" section.
A four-inch outlet hood is preferred. However, a 21/2 '' (6.4 cm)
outlet exhaust hood may be used. A 21/2 '' (6.4 cm) outlet creates
greater back pressure than other hood types. For permanent
installation, a stationary vent system is required.
