WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE OR PERSONAL INJURY:
This dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.
• Use only metal duct.
• Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, any gas
vent, under an enclosed floor (crawl space), or into
an attic. The accumulated lint could create a fire
hazard.
• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of
the exhaust system, especially at turns. Inspect and
clean at least once a year.
• Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct
with a kitchen exhaust. A combination of lint and
grease could create a fire hazard.
• Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU INSTALL YOUR DRYER BEFORE
YOUR WASHER. THIS WILL PERMIT DIRECT ACCESS FOR
EASIER EXHAUST CONNECTION.
THIS DRYER COMES READY FOR REAR EXHAUSTING. IF
SPACE IS LIMITED, USE THE INSTRUCTIONS IN SECTION 12 TO
EXHAUST DIRECTLY FROM THE LEFT SIDE OR BOTTOM OF THE
CABINET.
STANDARD REAR EXHAUST
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THE USE OF
RIGID METAL EXHAUST DUCT. IF USING
FLEXIBLE METAL DUCT, CUT IT TO THE
PROPER LENGTH AND AVOID BUNCHING
OF THE DUCT BEHIND THE DRYER.
