GAS DRYER INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Location
Requirements
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials
and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Do not install in a garage.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Your dryer can be installed in a basement, laundry room, or
recessed area.
Companion appliance location requirements should also be
considered.
IMPORTANT:
Do not install or store the dryer where it
will be exposed to the weather. Proper installation is your
responsibility.
You will need:
[] A grounded electrical outlet located within 6 ft. (1.8 m) of
where the power cord is attached to the back of the dryer.
See "Electrical Requirements."
[] A level floor with a maximum slope of 1" (25 mm) under
entire dryer, installing the dryer on soft floor surfaces,
such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing, is not
recommended.
Gas dryer installation clearances
[] The location must be large enough to allow the dryer door to
be fully opened.
[] Additional
spacing should be considered for ease of
installation and servicing. The door opens more than 180°.
[] Additional
clearances might be required for wall, door, and
floor moldings.
[] Additional
spacing of 1" (25 mm) on all sides of the dryer is
recommended
to reduce noise transfer.
When installing a gas dryer:
IMPORTANT:
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
[]
Check code requirements: Some codes limit or do not
permit installation of clothes dryers in garages, closets, or
sleeping quarters. Contact your local building inspector.
[]
Make sure that lower edges of the cabinet, plus the back
and bottom sides of the dryer, are free of obstructions
to
permit adequate clearance of air openings for combustion
air. See "Recessed Area and Closet installation instructions"
below for minimum spacing requirements.
Recessed
Area and Closet Installation Instructions
This dryer may be installed in a recessed area or closet. For
recessed area and closet installations, minimum clearances
can be found on the warning label on the rear of the dryer
or in "Dimensions/Clearances."
The installation spacing is in inches and is the minimum
allowable. Additional spacing should be considered for ease
of installation, servicing, and compliance
with local codes and
ordinances.
If closet door is installed, the minimum unobstructed
air
opening in the top and bottom is required. Louvered doors with
equivalent air openings are acceptable.
The dryer must be exhausted outdoors.
No other fuel-burning
appliance may be installed in the same
closet as the dryer.
