GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event
of malfunction or breakdown, ground-
ing will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for
electric current. This dryer uses a cord
having an equipment-grounding conduc-
tor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that
is properly installed and grounded in ac-
cordance with all local codes and ordi-
nances.
For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a ground-
ed metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must be
run with the circuit conductors and con-
nected to the equipment-grounding termi-
nal or lead on the dryer.
WARNING: Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor can re-
sult in a risk of electric shock. Check with a
qualified electrician or service representa-
tive or personnel if you are in doubt as to
whether the dryer is properly grounded. Do
not modify the plug on the power supply
cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
