Gas Supply
Provide a gas supply line of 1A"rigid (IPS) pipe to the dryer
location. Pipe joint compounds
that resist the action of LP
gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON _'ttape. With LP gas,
piping or tubing size can be 1/2"minimum. Usually, LP gas
suppliers determine the size and materials used in the system.
The gas supply may also be connected using %" approved
copper or aluminum tubing. If the total length of the supply
line is more than 20 feet (6.1 m), larger tubing will be required.
If using natural gas, do not use copper tubing. Pipe joint
compounds that resist the action of LP gas must be used.
Flexible metal appliance
It is recommended
that a new flexible stainless steel gas line,
by CSA International, be used for connecting
the dryer to the gas supply line. (The gas pipe which extends
through the lower rear of the dryer is provided with ¾" mate
pipe thread.)
Do not kink or damage the flexible stainless steel gas line
when moving the dryer.
Rigid pipe connection
The rigid pipe connection requires a combination of pipe fittings
to obtain an in-line connection to the dryer.
Must include a shutoff valve:
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shutoff
valve. In the U.S., the valve must be installed within 6 ft.
(1.8 m) of dryer in
accordance with National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1. In Canada, an
individual manual shutoff
valve must be installed in
accordance with the B149
installation codes
CAN/CGA B149.1 and
CAN/CGA B149.2. This
valve should be located in
the same room as the
A. Gas supply line
B. Shutoff valve in "open" position
C. Todryer
D. NPT 1/8" min. plugged tapping
dryer. It should be in a location that allows ease of opening
and closing. Do not block access to shutoff valve. The valve
is for turning on or shutting off gas to the dryer.
Installed in a confined area:
If the dryer is installed in a confined area such as a bathroom,
provision must be made for enough air for combustion
ventilation. Check governing codes and ordinances or refer to
the "Recessed Area Installation Instructions" in the "Location
Requirements" section.

Gas Supply Pressure
A %" NPT minimum plugged tapping, accessible for gauge
testing, must be installed immediately upstream of the installed
shut-off valve to the dryer.
The dryer must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of the system at test
pressures in excess of 1/2psig.
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a p_astic vent.
Do not use a meta_ foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
To reduce the risk of fire, this dryer MUST BE
The dryer vent must not be exhausted into any gas vent,
chimney, wail, ceiling, attic, crawtspace, or a concealed space
of a building.
Only rigid or flexible metal duct shall be used for exhausting.
Do not use an exhaust hood with a magnetic latch.
Do not install flexible metal vent in enclosed walls, ceilings,
or floors.
4" (102 mm) heavy metal vent and clamps must be used. Do
not use plastic or metal foil vent.
Use clamps to seat all joints. The duct shall not be assembled
with screws or other fastening means that extend into the
duct and catch lint. Do not use duct tape.
The total length of flexible metal vent shall not exceed 7,% ft
(2.4 m).
IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Rigid metal vent is recommended
to prevent crushing and
Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported
the dryer is in its final position. Remove excess flexible metal vent
to avoid sagging and kinking that may result in reduced airflow
and poor performance.
An exhaust hood should cap the vent to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the home or business.
Exhaust hood must be at least 12" (305 mm) from the ground
or any object that may be in the path of the exhaust (such as
flowers, rocks, or bushes).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length
of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal vent.
