Venting the dryer.
For the best drying performance, the dryer needs to be properly vented. The dryer will use
more energy and run longer if it is not vented to the below specifications. Carefully follow the
details on Exhausting in the Installation Instructions.
I Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4" diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet
or for exhausting to the outside.
I Do not use plastic or other combustible ductwork.
I Use the shortest length possible.
I Do not crush, kink or collapse the duct.
I Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
I Venting must conform to local building codes.
I Do not remove the vent protector from the back of the dryer.
I Flip the protector down to its lowest position and connect the exhaust duct
to the dryer. The lowered protector will prevent the duct from getting crushed.
