GENERAL INFORMATION
INSTALLATION IN RESIDENTIAL GARAGE
It is recommended that a qualified service technician install
your dryer,
Flammable Vapors - Vapors from spilled gasoline can be
ignited by a clothes dryer, a water heater, or other nonsealed gas heating appliance. The National Fuel Gas Code
ANSI Z223.1 and Canadian Code CAN 1-B149 requires that
a gas appliance when installed in a residential garage be
elevated so that the burner and the ignition device of the
burner are a minimum of 18 inches above the floor.To satisfy this requirementthe dryer must be installed with the base
at lease 14 in. above the floor.In addition, the dryer must be
located or protectedto prevent damage from movingvehicres.
Unless otherwise indicated on the nameplate (located inside
the door) this dryer is equipped for use with natural gas. If LP
gas is used, the proper conversion kit must be installed
by the dealer or distributor. The dryer installation should
be performed by a qualified person familiar with the precautions requiredand with local codes,
To obtain replacement parts contact any factory authorized
dealer.
FOR MAXIMUM SAFETY, INSTALLATION OF CLOTHES
DRYERS IN GARAGES SHOULD BE AVOIDED.
LOCATION
ELECTRICAL
This clothes dryer is designed so that it can be installed in
most locations in the home. The dryer may even be installed
in an unheated indoor location, such as a utility room or
building. However, with models having automatic dry cycles,
WHEN THE ROOM TEMPERATURE DROPS BELOW 50
DEG. F. OR 10 DEG. C. THE AUTOMATIC CYCLE MAY
NOT SHUT OFF. USE TIMED DRY CYCLE (HEAT NOT
FLUFF) IF AVAILABLE ON YOUR MODEL.
DO NOT INSTALLTHE DRYER ON A CARPETED FLOOR.
DO NOT INSTALL OR STORE THE DRYER WHERE IT
MAY BE EXPOSED TO THE WEATHER OR DRIPPING
WATER. If it is ever exposed to water, have a qualified technician check it before using. Clearances of 0 in. between
combustible construction and the front, sides, back and
exhaust duct are permissible.
THE INSTALLATION MUST BE MADE WITH ADEQUATE
CLEARANCE TO PERMIT SERVICING.
In ordinary installations enough air will be available for proper operation of the gas burner. However, if the dryer is
installed in a mobile home, a closet or a tightly sealed room,
provisions should be made for at least 18 square inches of
ventilation area. Air openings measuring a minimum 3 in. by
3 in. should be provided at the top and bottom of the closet
door. Ordinarily, Iouvered doors will satisfy the ventilation
requirements. Dryers installed in a bedroom, bathroom, or
closet must be exhausted outdoors.
FIRE HAZARD
CONNECTION
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD.
The dryer is designed for 120 volt, 60 HZ AC current and will
not operate on direct current or 50 HZ supplies.
It is recommended that a separate circuit be provided from
the main entrance panel to the dryer receptacle. The wiring
should be done by a qualified person in conformance with
local codes. The circuit must be protected with a 15 amp time
delay fuse or circuit breaker.
A wiring diagram is located behind backguard shield.
GROUNDING
The dryer, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local
codes, with the latest revision of the National Electrical
Code. ANSI/NFPA No. 70 and the Canadian Electrical Code
C.22.1 Part 1.
This dryer is equipped with a three-prong plug on the power
supply cord, which must be plugged into a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle for your protection against
possible shock hazard. Where the proper receptacle is not
installed, we strongly recommend that properly grounded
three-prong wall receptacle be instalred by a qualified electrician in accordance with the National Electrical Code,
Canadian Electrical Code, and local codes and ordinances.

2. Test pressures equal to or less than _ psig (3.45 KPA).The dryer
The gas inlet connection at the rear of the dryer is equipped
with a 3/8"- 18 N.S. pipe thread. The supply line must be '/£
black rigid pipe (pipe size should be increased for runs
longer than 20 feet). If local codes permit, it is recommended
that the dryer be connected to the gas supply with approved
semi-rigid metal tubing and listed connectors not over 6 feet
long.
_i_ CAUTION: Moderate pressure is all that is required
to make a tight joint. Do not use excessive force as
damage to the valve may occur,
must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing
the manual shut-off valve.
GAS VALVE INLET PRESSURE
TESTING
Manifold pressure is preset to 3'/, inch W.C. and does not
require adjustment. A 1/8NPT plugged pressure tap is avaiF
able in the gas valve body for test. To check the pressure proceed as follows:
a) Disconnect electric cord.
A '/8" NPT plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, must be installed upstream of the gas supply connection to the dryer. This work must be done by a qualified
person,
b) Raise the top of the dryer as shown in FIG. #2, page 5.
c) Remove the front panel by removing two screws inside the top
corners of the front panel disconnecting the door switch wires
and hinging the front panel outward then lifting up.
d) Be sure the manual valve is off.
e) Remove the plug and install pressure tap.
Use an approved pipe seal compound that is resistant to L.P.
gas on all pipe thread connections,
f) Route pressure hose downward past the front of the base
between front panel hinges.
The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 or CAN1-B149,
requires that an acceptable, approved manual gas shut
off valve be installed within 6 feet of the dryer,
g) Re-install front panel over pressure tap hose.
h) Connect the gauge, turn manual valve on the supply pipe, check
with dryer in operation.
To gain access to main gas valve, remove front panel (see Step
SHUTDOWN INSTRUCTIONS
#1 thru 3) under Bottom Exhausting, Page 5.)
To shutdown the dryer either turn timer to off position or open
the door then turn timer to off position. Turn Manual Gas Shut Off
Valve to OFE Unplug Dryer,

IGNITION
This dryer is equipped with an automatic ignition system which
does not require a manual lighting procedure. Start the dryer
and the system should purge itself and ignite.
When starting the dryer you may hear the gas ignite. This sound
is normal and should be no cause for alarm.
TURN OFF GAS AND UNPLUG BEFORE CONTINUING

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE AND WARNING
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to the
State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm,
and requires business to warn customers of potential
exposures to such substances.
No gas adjustment is necessary at normal altitudes since the
gas flow is controlled by a fixed-sized orifice for the main burner. For altitudes above 2,000 feet, the input must be reduced by
4% for each 1,000 feet above sea level, in some locations the
gas utility has reduced the B.T.U. content of the gas to provide
this compensation. In other locations, the burner orifice must be
changed. Consult your dealer or local gas utility for further informarion,
Users of this appliance are hereby warned that the burning of gas can result in low-level exposure to some of the
listed substances, including benzene, formaldehyde and
soot, due primarily to the incomplete combustion of natural gas or liquid petroleum (LP) fuels. Exhaust ducts should
be kept free of obstructions and properly exhausted dryers will minimize exposure.

Flexible 4" diameter metal tubing may be used for exhausting
the dryer. However, the convolutions create a greater restriction than pipe and serious blockage can result if the tubing is
bent too sharply. If clearance to the wall is less than 8 inches, use a 4" sheet metal elbow at the rear of the dryer to
avoid a sharp bend in the tubing. Do not use over 8 feet of
flexible metallic tubing between the elbow and the vent hood.
