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.
FIRE HAZARD
Failure to follow these instructions can create excessive
drying times and fire hazards.
The following
are specific requirements
for
proper and safe operation
of your dryer.
FIRE HAZARD

metal foil venting materials. Flexible 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: ............................................................................................................................................................................................
:If your present system is made up of plastic duct or
metal foil duct, replace it with a rigid or semi-rigid metal
duct. Also, ensure the present duct is free of any lint prior
to installing dryer duct.
