Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance
Use the following Vent system chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations
acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified in
the Vent system chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
Shorten the life of the dryer.
Reduce performance,
resulting in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
The Vent system chart provides venting requirements that will
help to achieve the best drying performance.

Install exhaust
hood. Use caulking
to seal exterior
wall opening around exhaust hood.
Connect vent to exhaust hood. Vent must fit inside exhaust
hood. Secure vent to exhaust hood with 4" (10.2 cm) clamp.
Run vent to dryer location. Use the straightest path possible.
See "Determine vent path" in "Plan Vent System." Avoid 90 °
turns. Use clamps to seal all joints. Do not use duct tape,
screws or other fastening devices that extend into the interior
of the vent to secure vent.
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
1. To protect the floor, use a large flat piece of cardboard from
the dryer carton. Place cardboard under the entire back edge
of the dryer.
2. Firmly grasp the body of the dryer. Gently lay the dryer on the
cardboard. See Illustration.
3. Examine the leveling legs. Find the diamond marking.
4. Screw the legs into the leg holes by hand. Use a wrench to
finish turning the legs until the diamond marking is no longer
5. Place a carton corner post from dryer packaging under each
of the 2 dryer back corners. Stand the dryer up. Slide the
dryer on the corner posts until it is close to its final location.
Leave enough room to connect the exhaust vent or gas line.
For mobile home use
Gas dryers must be securely fastened to the floor at the time of
Mobile home installations require a Mobile Home Installation Kit.
