INFORMATION
_I_WARNING
- IN CANADA AND IN THE UNITED STATES,
THE REQUIRED EXHAUST DUCT DIAMETER IS4 IN (102mm).
DO NOT USE DUCT LONGER THAN SPECIFIED IN THE
EXHAUST LENGTH TABLE.
Using exhaust longer than specified length will:
• Increase the drying times and the energy cost.
• Reduce the dryer life.
. Accumulate lint, creating a potential fire hazard.
The correct exhaust installation
is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
Problems due to incorrect installation
are not covered
by the warranty.
Remove and discard existing plastic or metal foil transition duct
and replace with UL listed transition duct.
The HAXIHUH
ALLOWABLE duct length and number of bends
of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct, number
of turns, the type of exhaust hood (wall cap), and all conditions
noted below. The maximum exhaust length for rigid metal duct
is shown in the table below.

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECKLIST
HOOD OR WALLCAP
• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or
other wildlife.
• Termination should present minimal resistanceto the exhaust air flow
and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.
• Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct. This could cause lint
build up.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 12 in.above ground levelor any
other obstruction with the opening pointed down.
SEPARATIONOF TURNS
For best performance, separate all turns by at least 4 ft. of straight duct,
including distance between last turn and exhaust hood.
TURNS OTHERTHAN 90 °
• One turn of 45° or lessmay be ignored.
• Two 45° turns should be treated as one 90° turn.
• Eachturn over 45° should be treated as one 90° turn.
SEALING OF JOINTS
• Alljoints should be tight to avoid leaks.The male end of each section of
duct must point away from the dryer
• The duct shall not be assembled with screws or other fastening means
that extend into the duct and catch lint.
• Duct joints can be made air and moisture-tight by wrapping the
overlapped joints with duct tape.
• Horizontal runs should slope down toward the outdoors 1/2 inch per foot.
INSULATION
Duct work that runs through an unheated area or is near air conditioning
should be insulated to reduce condensation and lint build-up.
