DANGER
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR PERSONAL INJURY:
• This appliance must be exhausted to the outdoors.
• Use only 4" rigid metal ducting for the home exhaust duct.
• Use only 4" rigid metal or UL-listed flexible metal (semi-
rigid or foil-type) duct to connect the dryer to the home ex-
haust duct. It must be installed in accordance with the in-
structions found in the section "Connecting The Dryer To
House Vent" of this Use & Care Guide.
• Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, a wall, a ceiling,
gas vent, crawl space, attic, under an enclosed floor, or in
any other concealed space of a building. The accumulated
lint could create a potential fire hazard.
• Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a
kitchen exhaust system. A combination of grease and lint
creates a potential fire hazard.
• Do not use duct longer than specified in the exhaust length
table. Longer ducts can accumulate lint, creating a poten-
tial fire hazard.
• Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct. This will
cause lint to accumulate, creating a potential fire hazard.
• Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners that extend
into the duct. These fasteners can accumulate lint, creating
a potential fire hazard.
• Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.
• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the ex-
haust system, especially at turns and joints. Exhaust system
shall be inspected and cleaned at least once a year.

5. Leveling and stabilizing your appliance

1. After making sure the shipping rod was removed from
the side of the washer, carefully move the appliance to
its final location.
Gently rock the appliance into position. It is important not to
damage the rubber leveling legs when moving your appli-
ance to its final location. Damaged legs can increase ap-
pliance vibration. It may be helpful to spray window
cleaner on the floor to help move your appliance to its fi-
nal position.
Note: Do not use washer cover to lift the unit.
2. To ensure the appliance is level and solid on all four legs,
tilt the appliance forward so the rear legs are off the
ground. Gently set the appliance back down to allow the
rear legs to self adjust.
3. With the appliance in its final position, place a level on
top of back part of the washer lid and check it side to
side, then check front to back. Screw the front leveling legs
up or down to ensure the appliance is resting solid on all
four legs (no rocking or the appliance should exist), turn
the lock nuts on each leg up toward the base of the unit
and snug with a wrench.
