THE DRYER T
RIGID METAL TRANSITION DUCT
• For best drying performance, a rigid metal transition duct is
recommended.
• Rigid metal transitions ducts reduce the risk of crushing and
kinking.
UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL (SEMI-RIGID) TRANSITION
DUCT
• If rigid metal duct cannot be used, then UL-listed flexible
metal (semi-rigid) ducting can be used (Kit WX08X10077).
• Never install flexible metal duct in walls, ceilings, floors or
other enclosed spaces.
• Total length of flexible metal duct should not exceed 8 feet
(2.4m).
• For many applications, installing elbows at both the dryer
and the wall is highly recommended (see illustrations). El-
bows allow the appliance to sit close to the wall without
kinking and or crushing the transition duct, maximizing dry-
ing performance.
• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL (FOIL-TYPE) TRANSITION DUCT
• In special installations, it may be necessary to connect the
dryer to the house vent using a flexible metal (foil-type)
duct. A UL-listed flexible metal (foil-type) duct may be used
ONLY in installations where rigid metal or flexible metal
(semi-rigid) ducting cannot be used AND where a 4" diam-
eter can be maintained throughout the entire length of the
transition duct.
• In Canada and the United States, only the flexible metal
(foil-type) ducts that comply with the "Outline for Clothes
Dryer Transition Duct Subject 2158A" shall be used.
• Never install flexible metal duct in walls, ceilings, floors or
other enclosed spaces.
• Total length of flexible metal duct should not exceed 8 feet
(2.4m).
• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
• For best drying performance:
1. Slide one end of the duct over the clothes dryer outlet
pipe.
2. Secure the duct with a clamp.
3. With the dryer in its permanent position, extend the duct
to its full length. Allow 2" of duct to overlap the exhaust
pipe. Cut off and remove excess duct. Keep the duct as
straight as possible for maximum airflow.
4. Secure the duct to the exhaust pipe with the other clamp.
