IMPORTANT TO INSTALLER
Please Read The Following Instructions Carefully Before Starting To Install The Dryer. These
Instructions Should Be Retained For Future Reference.
REMOVE THE DOOR FROM ALL DISCARDED APPLIANCES SUCH AS
DRYERS TO AVOID THE DANGER OF A CHILD SUFFOCATING.
LOCATION CONSIDERATIONS
The dryer should be located to permit adequate room in front for loading the dryer, and sufficient
room behind the dryer for the exhaust system.
This dryer is factory-ready for rear exhaust. To exhaust out the bottom or left side, use the accessory
exhaust kit (see Accessories). Instructions are included with the kit.
It is important to make sure the room has adequate make-up air. The area where the dryer is located
must not obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilating air.
THE DRYER MUST NOT BE INSTALLED OR STORED IN AN AREA WHERE IT WILL BE
EXPOSED TO WATER AND/OR WEATHER. THE DRYER AREA IS TO BE KEPT CLEAR AND
FREE FROM COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS, GASOLINE AND OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND
LIQUIDS. A DRYER PRODUCES COMBUSTIBLE LINT. THE AREA AROUND THE DRYER
SHOULD BE KEPT FREE OF LINT.
ALCOVE OR CLOSET INSTALLATION
! WARNING WARNING –
The dryer must
be exhausted to
the outside to
reduce the risk
of fire when
installed in an alcove or closet.
•
An appliance installed in a closet shall have no
other fuel-burning appliance installed in the
same closet.
•
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, this
dryer MUST BE EXHAUSTED TO THE
OUTDOORS. See EXHAUST INFORMATION
section.
•
Minimum clearances between dryer cabinet and adjacent walls or other surfaces are:
0” either side 1” front and rear.
•
Minimum vertical space from floor to overhead cabinets, ceilings, etc. is 52”(132cm).
•
Closet door must be louvered or otherwise ventilated and must contain a minimum of
60 in2 (152.5 cm2) of open area equally distributed. If this closet contains both a
washer and a dryer, doors must contain a minimum of 120 in2 of open area equally
distributed.
3
MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION
The installation of the dryer in mobile homes must conform to the Manufactured Home
Construction and Safety Standard Title 24 CFR, Part 32-80 {formerly the Federal standard
for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD (Part 280), 1975} for the United
States,) or CSA Standards Z240 (for Canada). When installing a dryer in a mobile home,
provisions for anchoring the dryer to the floor must be made. An anchor bracket kit is
available with instructions (see Accessories). Locate in an area that has adequate make up
air. A minimum of 60 in2 (152.5 cm2) of unobstructed opening is required. All mobile home
installations must be exhausted to the outside with the exhaust duct termination securely
fastened to the mobile home structure, using materials that will not support combustion. The
exhaust duct may not terminate beneath the mobile home. See the section on exhausting for
more information.
EXHAUSTING
Exhausting the dryer to the outside will prevent large amounts of lint and moisture from being blown
into the room.
In the United States:
• Electric dryers located in a confined area such as a bedroom, bathroom, or closet must be
exhausted to the outside.
• Electric dryers not located in a confined area may be exhausted to the inside (see nonexhausted
installations.
In Canada:
• All dryers must be exhausted to the outside.
Outside the U.S. and Canada:
• Refer to local codes.
! WARNING
WARNING – plastic or nonmetal flexible duct presents a potential fire hazard.
NEVER USE PLASTIC OR NONMETAL FLEXIBLE DUCT.
If your existing ductwork is plastic, nonmetal or combustible, replace it with metal. Use only metal
exhaust duct that will not support combustion to insure the containment of exhaust air, heat and lint.
DUCTING REQUIREMENTS
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use A Minimum Of 4-inch (10.2 Cm) Diameter Rigid Aluminum Or Rigid Galvanized Steel
Duct.
Do not use smaller duct.
Ducts larger than 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter can result in increased lint accumulation. Lint
accumulation should be cleaned regularly.
If flexible metal duct must be used, use the type with a stiff sheet metal wall. Do not use
flexible duct with a thin foil wall. Serious blockage can result if flexible metal duct is bent too
sharp.
Never install any type of flexible duct in walls, ceilings or other concealed spaces.
Keep exhaust duct as straight and short as possible.
4
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Secure joints with duct tape. Do not use screws.
DO NOT EXHAUST DRYER INTO ANY WALL, CEILING, CRAWL SPACE OR A
CONCEALED SPACE OF A BUILDING, GAS VENT, ANY OTHER COMMON DUCT OR
CHIMNEY. THIS COULD CREATE A FIRE HAZARD FROM LINT EXPELLED BY THE
DRYER.
Plastic flexible duct can kink, sag, be punctured, reduce airflow, extend drying times and affect
dryer operation.
Exhaust systems longer than recommended can extend drying times, affect machine
operation and may collect lint.
The exhaust duct should end with an exhaust hood with a swing out damper to
prevent back drafts and entry of wildlife. Never use an exhaust hood with a magnetic
damper.
The hood should have at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) of clearance between the bottom
of the hood and the ground or other obstruction. The hood opening should point down.
Never install a screen over the exhaust outlet.
When possible, do not exhaust the dryer directly into a window well in order to avoid
lint build-up. Do not exhaust under a house or porch.
If exhaust ductwork must run through an unheated area, the duct should be insulated
and slope slightly down towards the exhaust hood to reduce condensation and lint
build-up.
Inspect and clean the interior or the exhaust system at least once a year. Disconnect
electrical service prior to cleaning.
Frequently check to be sure the exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
If new dryer is installed into an existing exhaust system you must be sure:
•
•
•
•
•
The exhaust system meets all local, state and national codes.
That plastic flexible duct is not used.
Inspect and clean all lint accumulation from the interior of the existing duct.
The duct is not kinked or crushed.
The exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
5
The static pressure in any exhaust system must not exceed 0.48 inches of
water column, or be less than 0.
This can be measured with the dryer running with a manometer at the point where the
exhaust duct connects to the dryer. A no heat setting should be used. The dryer tumbler
should be empty and the lint filter clean.
NONEXHAUSTED INSTALLATIONS
•
•
•
If the electric dryer is not exhausted to the outside, the exhaust must not terminate
directly behind the dryer.
Use a rectangular vent kit along with a Dacron mesh lint bag (see Accessories).
Maintain a 6” (15.2 cm) clearance between the back of the control panel and the wall.
Although the lint screen and lint bag will retain most of the lint, a certain amount will be
expelled into the laundry area.
WARNING: IF THE DRYER IS NOT EXHAUSTED TO THE OUTSIDE, SOME FINE
LINT WILL BE EXPELLED INTO THE LAUNDRY AREA. AN ACCUMULATION OF
DUST OR LINT IN ANY AREA OF THE HOME CREATES A FIRE HAZARD. ANY
LINT ACCUMULATIONS MUST BE CLEANED FREQUENTLY.
