Fire/Health Hazard
Do Not use non-metal,
flexible duct.
l
Do Not use metal duct smaller than
four inches in diameter.
l
Do Not use exhaust hoods with
magnetic latches.
. Check that exhaust system is not
longer than specified. Exhaust
systems longer than specified will:
- Accumulate
lint.
- Shorten the life of the dryer.
- Reduce performance,
resulting in
longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
Failure to follow specifications
may
result in a fire.
l
Do Not exhaust dryer into a
chimney, furnace cold air duct,
attic or crawl space, or any other
duct used for venting.
. Clean the exhaust system every
other year.
l
Do Not install flexible duct in
enclosed walls, ceilings or floors.
Accumulated
lint could result in a fire
or cause moisture damage.
l
. Exhausting your dryer indoors is not
recommended.
The moisture and
lint indoors may cause:
- FIRE HAZARD from lint collected
in
dryer.
- Moisture damage to woodwork,
furniture, paint, wallpaper,
carpet,
etc.
- Housecleaning
problems and
possible health problems.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in fire damage or
personal injury.

Allow as much room as possible when
using elbows or making turns. Bend duct
gradually to avoid kinking. Remove
excess flexible duct to avoid sagging
and kinking that may
result in reduced air flow.

dealer. See “Recessed and closet
installation instructions,” Panel G, for
adequate,

requirements.
If the washer/dryer
is installed in a
confined area such as a bedroom,
bathroom or closet, it must be
exhausted to the outside and provision
must be made for enough air for
combustion
and ventilation.
Check
governing codes and ordinances.
Also
refer to “Recessed and closet installation
instructions,” Panel G.
An exhaust hood
should cap the
exhaust duct to
prevent exhausted air
from returning into
dryer. The outlet of the
--lb
hood must be at least
12 inches from the ground or any object
that may be in the path of the exhaust.
Four-inch outlet hood is preferred.
However, a 2-l/2-inch
outlet exhaust
hood may be used. A 2-l/2-inch
outlet
creates greater back pressure than
other hood types.
Exhausting the dryer
through the side of the
washer/dryer
requires
the use of Side Exhaust
Kit, Part No. 3391335.
Follow kit installation
instructions for proper
exhaust installation.
Mobile

\
installation
This appliance
is suitable for mobile
home installation. The installation of the
washer/dryer
must conform to the
Manufactured
Home Construction
and
Safety, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly
the Federal Standard for Mobile Homes
Construction
and Safety, Title 24, HUD
Part 280, latest edition).
Mobile home exhaust requirements:
The
washer/dryer
must have an outside
exhaust. If the dryer is exhausted
through the floor and the area under
the mobile home is enclosed, the
exhaust system must terminate outside
the enclosed area. Extension beyond
the enclosure will prevent lint and
moisture build-up under the mobile
home.
