ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

ELECTRIC Dryer
CIRCUIT - Individual 30 amp. branch circuit fused with 30 amp.
time delay fuses or circuit breakers.
Use separately fused circuits for washers and dryers, and DO
NOT operate a washer and a dryer on the same circuit.
POWER SUPPLY - 3 wire, 240 volt, single phase, 60 Hz,
Alternating Current.
POWER SUPPLY CORD KIT - The dryer MUST employ a 3-
conductor power supply cord NEMA 10-30 type SRDT rated at
240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp., with 3 open end spade lug
connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors and
marked for use with clothes dryers. If being installed in a new
branch circuit installation, manufactured (mobile) home,
recreational vehicle or area which prohibits grounding through
the neutral conductor, the dryer MUST employ a 4-conductor
power supply cord NEMA 14-30 type SRDT or ST (as required)
rated at 240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp., with 4 open end spade
lug connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors
and marked for use with clothes dryers. See ELECTRICAL
CONNECTIONS FOR A 4-WIRE SYSTEM.
OUTLET RECEPTACLE - NEMA 10-30R or 14-30R receptacle to
be located so the power supply cord is accessible when the dryer
is in the installed position.

EXHAUST SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Use only 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter (minimum) rigid or flexible
metal duct and approved vent hood which has a swing-out
damper(s) that open when the dryer is in operation. When the
dryer stops, the dampers automatically close to prevent drafts
and the entrance of insects and rodents. To avoid restricting the
outlet, maintain a minimum of 12 inches (30.5 cm) clearance
between the vent hood and the ground or any other obstruction.
The following are specific requirements for
proper and safe operation of your dryer. Failure to follow
these instructions can create excessive drying times and
fire hazards.
Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible
plastic venting materials. If your present system is made up
of plastic duct or metal foil duct, replace it with a rigid or flexible
metal duct. In Canada and the United States if metal (foil type)
duct is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the
appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers
and in the United States must also comply with the Outline for
Clothes Dryer Transition Duct, UL standard 2158A.
venting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed and
trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes dryer airflow and
increase the risk of fire. Ensure the present duct is free of
any lint prior to installing dryer duct.
- Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer must be
exhausted outdoors. Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney, a
wall, a ceiling, an attic, a crawl space or any concealed space
of a building. A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. If the
dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint will be expelled
into the laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area of the
home can create a health and fire hazard. The dryer must be
connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect the
outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint
around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding
area.
Do not allow combustible materials (for
example: clothing, draperies/curtains, paper) to come in
contact with exhaust system. The dryer MUST NOT be
exhausted into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, or any concealed
space of a building which can accumulate lint, resulting in a fire
hazard.
