ALCOVE OR CLOSET INSTALLATION
When the stacked washer/dryer is to be installed in an alcove area or a closet, clearance
should be provided around the unit for an adequate air supply and for ease of installation and
servicing. An appliance installed in a closet shall have no other fuel burning appliance
installed in the same closet, such as gas furnace, water heater or space heater, etc.
The dryer must be exhausted to the outside to minimize excessive lint accumulation and to
maintain good drying. We recommend allowance for more clearance than the minimum
installation clearances as shown.

MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION
Installation of Maytag dryers certified by the American Gas Association and bearing a label
stating they are suitable for installation in mobile homes, when installed in mobile homes,
must conform to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard Title 24 CFR,
part 32-80.
When installing a dryer in a mobile home, provisions for anchoring the dryer should be
made. An anchor bracket kit is available, Part No. 303740 to fasten dryer stand to floor.
Instructions for installing the anchor brackets are contained in each kit.
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. Exhaust the dryer using flexible metal exhausting materials and locate in an area
that provides adequate make-up air. The exhaust duct may not terminate beneath the mobile
home.

MAKE - UP AIR
For proper operation of the dryer unit, it is important to make sure the location has adequate
make-up air. This is especially important in any confined area such as a bathroom or closet.
There must be at least two 36 inch square unobstructed openings for intake air. This can be a
louvered door or other equivalent opening.
On gas dryer units in particular, adequate clearance as noted on the dryer minimum clearance
label should be maintained to insure enough air for combustion and proper operation of the
dryer. The area where located must not obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilating air.
When installing a Maytag Stacked Washer/Dryer the following minimum clearances to combustible surfaces must be maintained; clearance to wall and sides, 0 inches, top, 6 inches,
front I/2 inch to washer, rear 0 inches with an outside exhaust, 4 inches with an inside
exhaust (not recommended). See Exhausting Section and Installation Accessories for exhaust
kits.
SERVICE ACCESS
Location should allow access to the foot at the unit for washer and dryer service. Access
must be available to two screws at the top front corners of the dryer front panel (on the top).

EXHAUSTING
The free air flow rate is approximately 180 cubic feet per minute. The vent system carries
lint and moisture away and to the outside. The length of the venting and the number of
elbows affect the air flow rate and the efficiency of the exhaust system.
DO NOT EXHAUST DRYER INTO ANY WALL, CEILING, CRAWL SPACE OR A
CONCEALED SPACE OF A BUILDING, VENT CONNECTION, GAS VENT OR
CHIMNEY. THIS COULD CREATE A FIRE HAZARD FROM LINT EXPELLED BY
THE DRYER. FOR THE SAME REASON, WE RECOMMEND ONLY METAL
EXHAUST DUCT TO MINIMIZE RESTRICTED AIR FLOW AND RELIABLY INSURE
THE CONTAINMENT OF EXHAUST AIR, HEAT AND LINT. NEVER INSTALL A
SCREEN OVER EXHAUST OUTLET. NEVER USE PLASTIC OR OTHER COMBUSTIBLE DUCTWORK. AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR, INSPECT AND CLEAN INTERIOR
OF DUCTWORK, FREQUENTLY CHECK AND CLEAN VENT HOOD TO ASSURE
PROPER OPERATION.
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint and the area around the clothes dryer should be
kept free of lint. DO NOT STORE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS OR MATERIALS NEAR
A DRYER.
It is recommended that a dryer be exhausted to the outside using 4" rigid or flexible metal
ducting.
When located in a bedroom, bathroom or closet, the dryer must be exhausted to the outside.
The stacked washer/dryer can only be exhausted out the back. A 4" vent should be installed
to accept the exhaust from the dryer.
To permit sufficient air circulation under the exhaust hood, there should be no less than a 12"
clearance between the bottom of the exhaust hood and the ground. When possible the
exhaust hood should not exhaust directly into a window well. DO NOT terminate exhaust
under a building.
NOTE: Where the exhaust hood is to be installed through masonry, a special masonry saw is
necessary to cut the hole.
Install the exhaust hood and secure with screws to the outside wall and seal with caulking
compound.

DIRECT EXHAUST
An exhaust hood positioned to line up with the dryer exhaust pipe can be installed directly
through an outside wall. This would be the shortest and most direct exhaust method.
To exhaust up, route standard 4" diameter ducting up the recess and in the cabinet back using
the furnished retaining strap an screws to get nearly flush to wall installation. To exhaust to
the side or down, install the furnished 4" long duct with four "S" clips to the inner dryer
exhaust, then use standard 4" ducting. This will position the dryer about 4 1/2" away from
the wall. Flush to wall side exhausting may be done by going above the dryer before going
sideways.
When exhausting down, wallboard can be removed from the wall to get the dryer closer to
the wall by placing the exhaust pipe between the studs. Check local codes for required
exhaust clearances.
Install ductwork from the dryer to exhaust hood. All joints must be made so exhaust end of
one pipe is inside the intake end of the next pipe. On flexible metal ductwork, all joints
should be secured with a 304630 clamp. DO NOT use sheet metal screws when assembling
rigid ducting. Joints should taped.
Ill
FLEXIBLE DUCTWORK LIMITATIONS
Flexible metal ductwork should not exceed 34' of straight 4" ducting. The exhaust hood is
equivalent to 8' of duct and each 90 degree bend is equivalent to 8'. As an example if an
exhaust hood is used and two 90 degree bends, the maximum straight run would be 10'.
NOTE: If the radius of a bend with 4" duct is 12" or greater, the bend can be considered a
straight run. No more than three 90 degree bends should be used in any run with an exhaust
hood.
If flexible metal exhaust ducting is used, cut a short piece (about 3") off the male end of a 4"
diameter metal duct pipe. The short extension can be secured to the dryer exhaust with the
clips and the flexible metal duct can be clamped to the short extension.

RIGID DUCTWORK LIMITATIONS
Rigid metal ductwork should not exceed 50' of straight 4" duct. Each 90 degree elbow and
the exhaust hood should be considered equivalent to 8' of straight ductwork.
For example, if an exhaust hood and two 90 degree elbows are used, the maximum straight
duct allowed would be 26'. Not more than three 90 degree elbows should be used in any
rigid ductwork run with an exhaust hood. Four feet of straight duct should be allowed
between 90 degree elbows

WATER SUPPLY AND DRAIN
WATER SUPPLY
The water supply to the washer unit should be capable of providing both adequate water
pressure and water temperature. The pressure should fail within the range of 30 pounds per
square inch to 120 pounds per square inch when the washer is filling. Note that this is flow
pressure and not static pressure. Low water pressure will result in slow fill and could result
in a water valve sticking open after a fill.
The temperature of the hot water as delivered to the washer should be 140 degrees F. The
temperature of the cold water as delivered to the washer should be 75 degrees F.
Warm water temperature is a result of the mix of the hot and cold water supplies. The final
temperature is dependent on both the pressure and the temperatures of the hot and cold supplies. The desired temperature for warm is between 100 degrees F and 105 degrees F.
DRAIN FACILITIES
Because of the desirability of flush to the wall installation of the stacked washer/dryer, a
drain directly behind the unit is preferred to a drain located on either side,
The washer unit is equipped with a built-in siphon break which allows for a variance in
height of the drain facility. The drain must be capable of accepting a flow rate of approximately 20 gallons per minute. An inside diameter of at least 1" - 1 l/2" is required.
The portion of the drain hose from the siphon break to the drain can be extended to a floor
drain. Consult the parts catalog for extra drain hose as needed.
The use of a laundry built-in wail box can greatly simplify installation of the unit.

GAS CONNECTION
Gas operated dryers are equipped with a burner orifice for operation on NATURAL gas. If
the dryer is to be operated on LP gas, it must be converted correctly for safety and proper
performance. Conversion kits from NATURAL to LPG or LPG to NATURAL are available
through your local Maytag dealer. If other conversions are required, check with local gas
utility for specific information concerning conversion requirements. NOTE: The conversion should always be performed by a qualified service technician.
A 1/2" gas supply line is recommended and must be reduced to connect to the 3/8" gas line
on the dryer.
NOTE: A 3/8" x 2" pipe nipple is included to adapt valve connection from a 3/8" female to
a 3/8" male I.P.S. connection.
Additionally, a 1/8" N.P.T. (National Pipe Thread) plugged tapping, accessible for test
gauge connection, must be installed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to the
dryer. Refer to your local gas utility or plumbing contractor should you have questions on
the installation of the plugged tapping.
The dryer and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 P.S.I.G.
The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 P.S.I.G.

INSTALL FILL HOSES
Insert plain hose washers in 90 degree end of fill hoses and screen washers in straight end of
hoses. The screens should point outward.
The valve inlets are marked "H" and "C" to denote the hot inlet (top) and cold inlet (lower).
Connect 90 degree ends of hoses to the valve. Connect lower hose first. Be sure that hose
connectors are not cross threaded on the valve. Tighten securely by hand plus 1/4 turn with
pliers. Do no overtighten as this can strip the threads on the valve.
Connect the straight ends of the hose to the corresponding supply faucets (hot and cold).

INSTALL DRAIN HOSE
Secure drain hose to siphon break using the hose clamp provided in the parts package. The
siphon break can be turned right or left to meet the end of the drain hose. Place the gooseneck into the standpipe (or position the gooseneck as if it were in the standpipe). Insert the
clamp over the hose and direct the straight end of the hose toward the siphon break outlet
with a very gradual bend. Push the drain hose over the siphon break outlet and if necessary
twist the hose to relieve any stress on the hose between the siphon break outlet and the
standpipe after the hose is inserted into the standpipe.
NOTE: It is very important when connecting the drain hose that # is properly installed to
minimize the chance of the hose becoming ldnked when the washer is moved into position.
If it is necessary to extend the drain hose, attach one end of the extension hose to the siphon
break, and in the other end insert an accessory coupler, similar to the one shown below.
Push the drain hose (hose with short gooseneck) over the coupler until the extension hose and
drain hose join together in approximately the middle of the coupler. When the coupler is
properly used, hose clamps are not required.

hose coming out of the standpipe from the force of the water being discharged.
Connect the-two control cables, one from the dryer and one from the washer, as shown.

FINISH
All the cabinet and external finishes are protected against rust to keep product looking well
for many years. Cleaning and waxing will provide additional protection to these finishes.
The washer top has a porcelain finish. Since porcelain is *glass" bonded to metal, it is very
durable. Avoid damage from sharp blows of objects or tools used around and in the appliance.
Clean the control panel with a soft damp cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners that would scratch
the surface. A coat of household was will reduce the chance of scratches on the control panel
surface.
Caution: If "spilled" or used improperly, bleaches and other strong laundering chemicals can
permanently spot or stain finishes unless wiped up immediately. Aerosol pretreat products
can also damage finish on control panel. When using these products on garments placed in
the stacked washer/dryer, it is advisable to avoid control panel area with the overspray.
WATER DAMAGE FROM FLOODING
In the event the stacked washer/dryer is exposed to water from flooding, call you local Maytag dealer before using. Always unplug the appliance and have a qualified technician inspect
the appliance before any attempt is made to operate the unit. Never wash product inside and
out with a garden hose or pressure cleaning equipment.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
If your unit requires replacement parts, contact the dealer from who you purchased your
appliance, or Maytag Customer Service, 240 Edwards St. SE, Cleveland, TN 37311 for
information on the nearest Maytag parts distributor.
Service manuals are available through your dealer or nearest parts distributor.
