Connect Vent

1. Using a 4" (10.2 cm) clamp, connect vent to exhaust outlet in
dryer. If connecting to existing vent, make sure the vent is
clean. The dryer vent must fit over the dryer exhaust outlet
and inside the exhaust hood. Check that the vent is secured
to exhaust hood with a 4" (10.2 cm) clamp.
2. Move dryer into its final location. Do not crush or kink vent.
3. (On gas models) Check that there are no kinks in the flexible
gas line.
4. Once the exhaust vent connection is made, remove the
corner posts and cardboard.

The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the
new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses.
1. Turn cold water faucet off and remove washer inlet hose.

new rubber washer provided. If space permits, attach the
brass female end of the "Y" connector to the cold water
faucet.
NOTE: If "Y" connector can be attached directly to cold water
faucet, go to Step 6. If "Y" connector cannot be attached
directly to the cold water faucet, the short hose must be
used. Continue with Step 3.
