Dryer Enclosure Requirements _______
A = 20-inches (50.80 cm)
B = 22.5-inches (57.15 cm)
A
The requirement to allow the dryer door to open
completely is 33.5-inches (85.1 cm).
B
A minimum overhead clearance of 12-inches (30.48 cm)
is required.
C
Dryer should be positioned a minimum of 12-inches
(30.48 cm) away from the nearest obstruction. 24-inches
(60.96 cm) is recommended for ease of installation,
maintenance, and service.
D
1/16” (1.5875 mm) minimum is required.
E
Flooring should be level or below dryer cabinet for ease
of removing panels during maintenance.
F
Dryers may be positioned sidewall to sidewall, however
a 1/16” (1.5875 mm) minimum allowance must be made
for the opening and closing of the control door, along
with the removal of panels during maintenance.
G
4-inch (10.16 cm) maximum.
Fresh Air Supply Requirements _______
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it,
passes this air through the tumbler, and exhausts it out of the
building. Therefore, the room air must be continually
replenished from the outdoors. If the make-up air is
inadequate, drying time and drying efficiency will be adversely
affected. Ignition problems and sail switch “fluttering”
problems may result, as well as premature motor failure from
overheating. The dryer must be installed with provisions for
adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration
to ensure proper performance of each dryer. Fresh air
ventilation openings shall not be blocked and/or sealed. As
a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors
of 224 inch2 (1,445 cm2) is required for each dryer. (Based on
1 inch2 [6.5 cm2] per 1,000 Btu [252 kcal].)
EXAMPLE: For a bank of 4 dryers, 2 unrestricted openings
measuring 20-inches by 22.5-inches (50.80 cm by 57.15 cm)
are acceptable.
To compensate for the use of registers or louvers used over
the openings, this area must be increased by approximately
33%. Make-up air openings should not be located in an area
directly near where exhaust vents exit the building.
Allowances must be made for remote or constricting
passageways or where dryers are located at high altitudes
or predominantly low pressure areas.
IMPORTANT: Make-up air must be free of dry cleaning
solvent fumes. Make-up air that is contaminated by dry
cleaning solvent fumes will result in irreparable damage to
the motors and other dryer components.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent
fumes will void the warranty.
Exhaust Requirements ________________
Exhaust ductwork should be designed and installed by a
qualified professional. Improperly sized ductwork will create
excessive back pressure, which results in slow drying,
increased use of energy, and shutdown of the burner by the
airflow (sail) switch, burner hi-limits, or lint chamber hi-limit
protector thermostat. The dryer must be installed with a proper
exhaust duct connection to the outside.
It is not necessary to have a separate make-up air opening
for each dryer. Common make-up air openings are
acceptable. However, they must be set up in such a manner
that the make-up air is distributed equally to all the dryers.
! WARNING
▲
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.

As per the National Fuel Gas Code, “Exhaust ducts for type 2
clothes dryers shall be constructed of sheet metal or other
noncombustible material. Such ducts shall be equivalent in
strength and corrosion resistance to ducts made of
galvanized sheet steel not less than 26 gauge (0.0195-inches
[0.50 mm]) thick.”
The ductwork should be laid out in such a way that the
ductwork travels as directly as possible to the outdoors with
as few turns as possible. Single or independent dryer venting
is recommended. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns be
avoided; use 30° and/or 45° bends instead. The radius of
the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter of
the duct. All ductwork should be smooth inside with no
projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions,
which will collect lint. When adding ducts, overlap the duct
being connected. All ductwork joints must be taped to prevent
moisture and lint from escaping into the building. Inspection
doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust
ductwork for periodic inspection and cleaning of lint from the
ductwork.
Single Dryer Venting with Transition Piece
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the crosssectional area of the ductwork can only be increased to an
extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum
limits as noted in this manual, a professional HVAC firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that exhaust or booster
fans not be used in the exhaust ductwork system.
Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer/
magnehelic in the exhaust duct must be no less than 0 and
must not exceed 0.6 in wc (1.48 mb).
NOTE: When the exhaust ductwork passes through a wall,
ceiling, or roof made of combustible materials, the opening
must be 2-inches (5.08 cm) larger than the duct (all the way
around). The duct must be centered within this opening.
A = 20 feet (6.10 meters)
B = 10-inches (25.4 cm)
The ductwork for this dryer must be suitable for the appliance
category in accordance with national installation regulations
of the country of destination.
Outside Ductwork Protection
To protect the outside end of the horizontal ductwork from the
weather, a 90° elbow bent downward should be installed
where the exhaust exits the building. If the ductwork travels
vertically up through the roof, it should be protected from the
weather by using a 180° turn to point the opening downward.
In either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct
between the duct opening and the nearest obstruction (refer
to the diagram).
IMPORTANT: Do not use screens, louvers, or caps on the
outside opening of the exhaust ductwork.
NOTE 1 Opening from combustible materials must be 2-inches (5.08 cm)
larger than the duct (all the way around). The duct must be centered
within this opening.
NOTE 2 Distance should be 2 times the diameter of the duct to the nearest
obstruction.

should be consulted for proper venting information.
If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each
dryer, ducts from individual dryers may be channeled into a
“common main duct.” The individual ducts should enter the
bottom or side of the main duct at an angle not more than 45º
in the direction of airflow. The main duct should be tapered,
with the diameter increasing before each individual duct is
added. The minimum diameter of the individual ductwork
must be at least 8-inches (20.32 cm) for individual pockets/
tumblers or 10-inches (25.4 cm) for individual dryers.

Type of Gas
This dryer is equipped for use with natural gas. It is designcertified by CSA International for L.P. (propane and butane)
gases with appropriate conversion (L.P. kit 887168). No
attempt shall be made to convert the dryer from the gas
specified on the serial/rating plate for use with a different gas
without consulting the serving gas supplier. Conversion must
be done by a qualified service technician.
It is your responsibility to have all plumbing connections,
materials, and workmanship conform to local and state
regulations or codes of the country of destination. In the
absence of such codes, all plumbing connections, materials,
and workmanship must conform to the applicable local
requirements. In the USA this is the National Fuel Gas Code
ANSI Z223.1-LATEST EDITION, or in Canada, the Canadian
Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or
CAN/CGAB149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION.
It is important that gas pressure regulators meet applicable
pressure requirements, and that gas meters be rated for the
total amount of all the dryer Btu being supplied.
IMPORTANT: For ease of service, the individual gas supply
line of each dryer must have its own manual shutoff valve.
The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure test of the gas supply system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The dryer and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

The input ratings shown on the data label are for elevations
up to 2,000 feet (610 meters), unless elevation requirements
of over 2,000 feet (610 meters) were specified at the time the
dryer order was placed with the factory. The adjustment or
conversion of dryers in the field for elevations over 2,000 feet
(610 meters) is made by changing each burner orifice. If this
conversion is necessary, contact the distributor who sold the
dryer or contact the manufacturer.
TYPICAL NATURAL GAS INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT: If connection to this dryer is made with a
flexible hose, it must be suitable for the appliance category
in accordance with national installation regulations of the
country of destination, and if in doubt the installer must
contact the supplier. The manufacturer of this dryer does
not recommend the use of flexible gas supply line/hose.
Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of natural,
propane, and butane gases must be used.
In the U.S.A.: An individual manual shutoff valve must be
installed within 6 feet (1.8 meters) of the dryer in accordance
with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
In Canada: An individual manual shutoff valve must be
installed in accordance with the B149.1, Natural Gas and
Propane Installation Code. It is recommended that an
individual manual shutoff valve be installed within 6 feet (1.8
meters) of the dryer.

Gas Connections
Inlet connection ..... 3/4” M.N.P.T.
Inlet supply size .... 3/4” Pipe (minimum)
Piping/Connections
The dryer is provided with a 3/4” N.P.T. inlet pipe connection
on top of the dryer. It is recommended that a gas shutoff valve
be provided to the gas supply line of each dryer for ease in
servicing.
The size of the main gas supply line (header) will vary
depending on the distance this line travels from the gas
meter. Specific information regarding supply line size should
be determined by the gas supplier.
NOTE: Undersized gas supply piping can create a low or
inconsistent pressure, which will result in erratic operation
of the burner ignition system.
12
Consistent gas pressure is essential at all gas connections.
It is recommended that a 3/4-inch (19.05 mm) pipe gas loop
be installed in the supply line servicing a bank of dryers. An
in-line pressure regulator must be installed in the gas supply
line (header) if the (natural) gas pressure exceeds 13.0 in wc
(32.34 mb) pressure.
The following items should be checked before attempting to
operate the dryer:
• Read all “WARNING” and “DIRECTION” labels attached
to the dryer.
• Check incoming supply voltage to be sure that it is the
same as indicated on the data label.
• Be sure that all gas shutoff valves are in the open
position.
• Be sure all back panels (guards) and electric box covers
are in place.
• Be sure the service doors are closed and securely in
place.
• Be sure the lint door/drawer is securely in place.
• Rotate the tumbler (drum) by hand to be sure it moves
freely.
• Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for
tightness and security.
• Check that the vent is connected to the dryer and is
exhausted to the outdoors.

Preoperational Test ___________________
Shutdown Instructions ________________
All dryers are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving
the factory. However, a preoperational test should be
performed before the dryer is publicly used. It is possible
that adjustments have changed in transit or due to marginal
location (installation) conditions.
If the dryer is to be shutdown (taken out of service) for a
period of time, the following must be performed:
Turn on electric power to the dryer.
Discontinue power to the dryer either at the external disconnect
switch or the circuit breaker.
Discontinue the fuel supply: close external gas shutoff valve.
Also close two internal gas shutoff valves.
Refer to the operating instructions for starting your dryer.
Open all shutoff valves.
When a gas dryer is first started (during initial start-up), it has
a tendency not to ignite on the first ignition attempt. This is
because the gas supply piping is filled with air, so it may take
a few minutes for the air to be purged from the lines.
NOTE: During the purging period, check to be sure that all
gas shutoff valves are open.
Tumbler Coating
The tumbler is treated with a protective coating. We suggest
dampening old garments or cloth material with a solution of
water and nonflammable mild detergent and tumbling them
in the tumbler to remove this coating.
Microprocessor Programs/Selections
Each microprocessor controller (computer) has been
preprogrammed by the factory with the most commonly used
parameter (program) selections. If computer program
changes are required, refer to the computer programming
manual, which was shipped with the dryer.
Operating Instructions ________________
The dryer is available for use when the appropriate side of
the microprocessor display reads “0 minutes” and the amount
needed to start the dryer (i.e., “25”). Once the load has been
put into the dryer and the main door is closed, start the dryer
as follows:
• Insert the proper number of coins into the coin acceptor.
Once the correct “Amount To Start” has been inserted, the
display will read “SELECT CYCLE”.
• Determine fabric setting (selection).
Once the fabric temperature setting (selection) has been
determined, start the dryer by pressing the fabric setting
key.
• The dryer will now start, and the display will read the
setting and the time vended.
• The cycle time will count down until the drying and
cooling cycles are completed.
• Upon completion of the drying and cooling cycles, the
dryer will shut off.
The dryer tumbler can be stopped at any time by opening the
main door. To restart dryer, shut the main door and press
desired setting.
NOTE: When a cycle is interrupted by opening the main
door, cycle time will continue to count downward,
regardless if the door is open or closed.
Service/Parts Information ____________
Service
Service must be performed by a qualified trained technician,
service agency, or gas supplier. If service is required, contact
the Maytag distributor from whom the equipment was
purchased. If the distributor cannot be contacted or is
unknown, contact the Maytag Co. for a distributor in your area.
NOTE: When contacting the Maytag Co., be sure to give
them the correct model number and serial number so that
your inquiry is handled in an expeditious manner.
Parts
Replacement parts should be purchased from the distributor
from whom the Maytag equipment was purchased. If the
distributor cannot be contacted or is unknown, contact the
Maytag Co. for a distributor in your area.
NOTE: When ordering replacement parts from the Maytag
distributor or the Maytag Co. be sure to give them the
correct model number and serial number so that your parts
order can be processed in an expeditious manner.
Routine Maintenance _________________
A program should be established for the inspection and
cleaning of lint in the burner area, exhaust ductwork, and
area around the back of the dryer. The frequency of inspection
and cleaning can best be determined from experience at
each location.
Exhaust duct outlet should be checked periodically for
blockages, and if any found, removed.
Cleaning
A program and/or schedule should be established for
periodic inspection, cleaning, and removal of lint from various
areas of the dryer, as well as throughout the ductwork system.
The frequency of cleaning can best be determined from
experience at each location. Maximum operating efficiency
is dependent upon proper airflow. The accumulation of lint
can restrict this airflow.
NOTE: Suggested time intervals shown are for average
usage, which is considered 6 to 8 operational (running)
hours per day.
Every 6 months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any
lint buildup.
Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during
the drying cycle.
