Electrical Requirements – Gas Dryer
IMPORTANT: The dryer must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances or, in the absence of
local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
latest edition, or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path is adequate.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:

Recommended Ground Method
The dryer, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition,
or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1, and all local codes
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipment-
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the
dryer: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
