PLEASE READ All Installation Instructions and Requirements Before Installing Power Cord.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT A QUALIRED ELECTRk

Dryers installed in manufactured (mobile) homes must be
connected with 4 conductor type SRD or SRDT cord to a 3
pole, 4 wire grounding type receptacle; by metal-clad cable;
or suitable conductors enclosed in flexible metal conduit. If
using metal-clad cable or flexible conduit, leave at least 3
LOCATION
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, the TIME DRY SETTING
SHOULD BE USED WHEN THE ROOM TEMPERATURE DROPS BELOW 50 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT
OR (10 DEGREES C.), AS THE AUTOMATIC CYCLE
MAY NOT SHUT OFF.
feet free to permit moving the dryer.
Where permitted by local codes, a flexible power cord (pigtail) may be connected to the dryer. A receptacle should be
installed in a separate circuit connected to the main service
entrance panel for this type of installation. See Figure #3.
Use only a 3 or 4 wire power cord kit, including strain relief,
listed by U.L. for use with dryers. The power cord must have
a rating of 30 amperes, 120/240 voltsAC minimum and be
terminated in closed loop or open spade lugs with upturned
ends. The attachment plugof the power cord and the receptacle to which it will be connected must have a minimum cur-

BEFORE USING.
THE INSTALLATION MUST BE MADE WITH ADEQUATE
CLEARANCE TO PERMIT SERVICING.
This appliance MUST BE CONNECTED TO A GROUNDED
METAL PERMANENT WIRING SYSTEM; or an equipmentgroundingconductormust be run with the circuitconductors
and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead
on the appliance.
GROUNDING
In ordinary installations enough air will be available for proper operation of the dryer. 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

Follow steps outlined for installation with these exceptions:
When installed in a manufactured (mobile) home.
1. THE DRYER INSTALLATION must conform to the
Manufactured Home Construction and Safety, Title 24,
HUD (Part 280, 1975).
2. THE DRYER must be attached to the manufactured
(mobile) home structure as follows:
a. Dismantle the dryer as described in bottom exhausting.
b. Buy two #10 1'/2"round head wood screws. Drive them
through the attachment screw holes of the base into
the floor. See FIG. #8 for location.
c. Reassemble the dryer.
Figure #8 illustrates side exhaust venting pipe connections
inside the dryer cabinet. When venting the dryer from the
side, the cabinet knockout must be removed. A 4" metal
exhaust pipe must be purchased. The rear exhaust pipe
inside the dryer must then be shortened. (Length will depend
on type of elbow purchased.) Secure the shortened pipe to
