Table of Contents
The laundry center may be exhausted four (4) ways with rear
flush installation:
1. Straight back
2. Down (8 inch [20.32 cm] length of 4 inch [10.16 cm] rigid
duct and 1 elbow down)
3. Left (8 inch [20.32 cm] length of 4 inch [10.16 cm] rigid
duct, 1 elbow down and 1 elbow left)
4. Right (8 inch [20.32 cm] length of 4 inch [10.16 cm] rigid
duct, 1 elbow down and 1 elbow right)
Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system is acceptable,
certain extenuating circumstances could affect the performance
of the dryer:
Only the rigid metal duct
work should be used.
Venting vertical through
a roof may expose the
exhaust system to down
drafts causing an
increase in vent
restriction.
Running the exhaust
system through an
uninsulated area may
cause condensation and
faster accumulation of
lint.
Compression or crimping
of the exhaust system
will cause an increase in
vent restriction.
DO NOT INSTALL YOUR LAUNDRY CENTER:
1.In an area exposed to dripping water or outside weather conditions.
2.In an area where it will come in contact with curtains or drapes.
3.On carpet. Floor MUST be solid with a maximum slope of 1 inch (2.54 cm).
INSTALLATION IN RECESS OR CLOSET
1.A laundry center installed in a bedroom, bathroom, recess or closet, MUST be exhausted outdoors.
2.No other fuel burning appliance shall be installed in the same closet as the Gas laundry center.
3.Your laundry center needs the spacearound it for proper ventilation.
DO NOT INSTALL YOUR LAUNDRY CENTER IN A CLOSET WITH A SOLID DOOR.
4.A minimum of 120 square inches (774.2 square cm) of opening, equally divided at the top and bottom of the door, is required.
Air openings are required to be unobstructed when a door is installed. A louvered door with equivalent air openings for the full
length of the door is acceptable.
5.The following illustrations show minimum clearance dimensions and air openings for proper operation in a recess or closet
installation.

To exhaust up, add an 11 inch (27.94 cm) length of standard 4
inch (10.16 cm) diameter duct and a 90° elbow. The unit will
be positioned about 4½ inches (11.43 cm) away from the wall
(flush to wall exhausting may be done by going below the dryer
then sideways).
An exhaust hood positioned to line up with the dryer exhaust
can be installed directly through the outside wall. To exhaust to
the side or down, add an 8 inch (20.32 cm) length of standard 4
inch (10.16 cm) diameter duct and a 90° elbow.

GAS SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

1.Installation MUST conform with local codes, or in the absence
of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1
(latest edition) or in Canada, the current AN/CGA B149.
2.The gas supply line should be of 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) pipe.
3.If codes allow, flexible metal tubing may be used to connect
your dryer to the gas supply line. The tubing MUST be
constructed of stainless steel or plastic-coated brass.
4.The gas supply line MUST have an individual shutoff valve.
5.A 1/8 inch (0.32 cm) N. P. T. plugged tapping, accessible for
test gage connection, MUST be installed immediately
upstream of the gas supply connection to the dryer.
6.The dryer and its individual shutoff valve MUST be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa).
7.The dryer MUST be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any
pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures
equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa).
