•
•
WARNING
Clothes dryer installation must be performed by a qualified installer.
Install the clothes dryer according to the manufacturer’s instructions and local codes.
Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic venting materials. If flexible metal
(foil type) duct is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the appliance
manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers. Flexible venting materials are
known to collapse, be easily crushed, and trap lint. These conditions will obstruct
clothes dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire.
To reduce the risk of severe injury or death, follow all installation instructions.
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
•
•
WARNING
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned, washed, soaked, or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They
emit vapors that could ignite or explode. Any material that has been in contact with a
cleaning solvent or flammable liquids or solids should not be placed in the dryer until all
traces of these flammable liquids or solids and their fumes have been removed.
There are many highly flammable items used in homes, such as acetone, denatured
alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentine, waxes, and wax removers
Items containing foam rubber (may be labeled latex foam) or similarly textured rubberlike materials must not be dried on a heat setting. Heated foam rubber materials can,
under certain circumstances, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
What to do if you smell gas:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not try to light any appliance.
Do not turn on the appliance.
Do not touch any electrical switch.
Do not use any phone in your building.
Clear the room, building or area of all occupants.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s
instructions.

installation instructions for information about grounding this appliance.
Do not sit on top of the dryer.
WARNING
Ensure pockets are free from small, irregularly shaped hard objects, foreign material, etc. ie.
coins, knives, pins, etc. These objects could damage your dryer.
Do not wash clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal or solid objects.
Gas leaks may occur in your system, resulting in a dangerous situation.
WARNING
Gas leaks may not be detected by smell alone.
Gas suppliers recommend you purchase and install a UL-approved gas detector.
Install and use in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not place items in your dryer that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or cooking
oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts of these oils.
Residual oil on clothing can ignite spontaneoulsy. The potential for spontaneous
combustion increases when items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to
heat. Heat sources such as your dryer can warm these items, allowing an oxidation reaction
in the oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat cannot escape, the items can become
hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking, or storing these kinds of items may prevent heat
from escaping and can create a fire hazard.
All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be
dangerous. Washing these items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard. Always use the Cool Down cycle for these items to reduce their
temperature. Never remove these items from the dryer hot or interrupt the drying cycle until
the items have run through the Cool Down cycle. Never pile or stack these items when they
are hot.

•
•
•
01 installing your dryer
•
Use a 4-inch (10.2 cm) diameter rigid aluminum or rigid galvanized steel duct.
Do not use a smaller duct.
Ducts larger than 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter can cause increased lint accumulation.
Lint accumulation should be cleaned regularly.
If a flexible metal duct must be used, use the type with a stiff sheet metal wall. Do not use a flexible duct
with a thin foil wall. Serious blockage can result if the flexible metal duct is bent too sharply.
Never install any type of flexible duct in walls, ceilings, or other concealed spaces.
Keep the exhaust duct as straight and short as possible.
Secure joints with duct tape. Do not use screws.
Plastic flexible duct can kink, sag, be punctured, reduce airflow, extend drying times, and affect dryer
operation.
Exhaust systems longer than recommended can extend drying times, affect machine operation, and
may collect lint.
The exhaust duct should end with an exhaust hood with a swing-out damper to prevent back drafts and
the entry of wildlife. Never use an exhaust hood with a magnetic damper.
The hood should have at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) of clearance between the bottom of the hood and
the ground or other obstruction. The hood opening should point down.
Never install a screen over the exhaust outlet.
To avoid lint buildup, do not exhaust the dryer directly into a window well. Do not exhaust under a house
or porch.
If exhaust ductwork must run through an unheated area, the duct should be insulated and slope slightly
down towards the exhaust hood to reduce condensation and lint buildup.
Inspect and clean the interior of the exhaust system at least once a year. Unplug the power cord before
cleaning.
Check frequently to be sure the exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
Check once per month, and clean at least one time per year. Note: If clothes are not getting dry, then
check ducting for obstructions.
Do not exhaust dryer into any wall, ceiling, crawl space, or concealed space of a building, gas vent, or
any other common duct or chimney. This could create a fire hazard from lint expelled by the dryer.

installing your dryer
If the new dryer is being installed into an existing exhaust system, you must
make sure:
• The exhaust system meets all local, state, and national codes.
• That a flexible plastic duct is not used.
• To Inspect and clean all lint buildup from inside the existing duct.
• The duct is not kinked or crushed.
• The exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
The static pressure in any exhaust system must not exceed 0.83 inches of water column, or be
less than 0.
This can be measured with the dryer running with a manometer at the point where the exhaust
duct connects to the dryer. A no-heat setting should be used. The dryer tumbler should be
empty and the lint filter clean.
IMPORTANT TO INSTALLER
Please read the following instructions carefully before installing the dryer. These instructions should be kept
for future reference.
Remove the door from all discarded appliances to avoid the danger of a child suffocating.
WARNING
LOCATION CONSIDERATIONS
Locate the dryer where there is enough space at the front for loading the dryer, and enough space behind
for the exhaust system. This dryer is factory-ready for rear exhaust. To exhaust out the bottom or the right
or the left (electric model only), use the accessory exhaust kit (sold separately). Instructions are included
with the kit. It’s important to make sure the room has enough fresh air. The dryer must be located where
there is no air-flow obstruction.

INSTALLATION - GENERAL PROCEDURE
For proper installation, we recommend that you hire a qualified installer.
Read these instructions completely before you begin the installation.
To move the dryer easily, lay two of the carton cushion-tops on the floor. Tip your dryer on its side so it
lies across both cushion-tops. Push the dryer so that it is near its final location. Set your dryer upright.
Leave enough room around the dryer so you can attach the duct work, power cord, etc.
2. If you need to change the direction of the door, go to Door Reversal on page . When done, return to
Step 3 below.
3. Review the Exhausting section before installing the exhaust system. Install the duct work from your
dryer to the exhaust hood. The crimped end of the duct sections must point away from your dryer. DO
NOT use sheet metal screws when assembling ducting. These joints should be taped. Never use plastic
flexible exhaust material.
01 installing your dryer
To install the dryer, follow these steps:
1. Move your dryer to an appropriate location for installation. Consider installing the dryer and washer sideby-side so you have easy access to both appliances.
A tip for tight installations: Attach a section of the exhaust system to your dryer before putting it in
place. Use duct tape to secure this section to your dryer, but do not cover the ventilation slots at the
back of the dryer cabinet.
4. If you have an electric model, skip to Step 6. If you have a gas model, go to the next step.
5. Review the Gas Requirements section, then follow the lettered steps below.
a. Remove the pipe thread protective cap.
b. Apply pipe joint compound or about 1 1/2 wraps of Teflon tape over all threaded connections.
The pipe joint compound must be resistant to the action of any liquefied petroleum gas.
c. Connect the gas supply to your dryer. An additional fitting is required to connect the 3/4” (1.9 cm)
female thread end of a flexible connector to the 3/8” (1 cm) male threaded end on the dryer.
d. Securely tighten the gas line fitting over the threads.
e. Turn on the gas supply. Check all gas connections for leaks using a soap solution. If bubbles
appear, tighten the connections and recheck. DO NOT use an open flame to check for gas leaks.
f. Go to Step 6 on the next page

WARNING
If converting from a 4-wire electrical system to a 3-wire, you must connect the ground strap
to the terminal block support to ground the dryer frame to the neutral conductor.
We recommend using Ring terminals. If you use Strap terminals, please ensure you install
them perfectly.
8. Four Wire System instructions:
A. External ground connector
B. Green or bare copper wire of power cord
C. ¾” (1.9 cm) UL-listed strain relief
D. Center silver-colored terminal block screw
E. Neutral Grounding wire (green/yellow)
F. Neutral wire (white or center wire)

U.S. MODELS:
IMPORTANT – All U.S. models are designed for a 3-WIRE SYSTEM CONNECTION. The dryer frame is
grounded to the neutral conductor at the terminal block. A 4-WIRE SYSTEM CONNECTION is required for
new or remodeled construction, mobile homes, or if local codes do not permit grounding through neutral.
If you use the 4-wire system, you cannot ground the dryer frame to the neutral conductor at the terminal
block.
Remove the terminal block cover plate. Insert the power cord with a UL-listed strain relief through the hole
provided in the cabinet near the terminal block.
9. Connect the Water Inlet Hose. For instructions, go to Connecting the
Inlet Hose on page
10. To ensure that the dryer provides optimal drying performance, it must
be level. To level the dryer, follow the lettered steps below:
a. Using a level, check if the dryer is level side to side and then front
to back.
b. If the dryer is not level, adjust the leveling feet on the bottom of
the dryer until the washer is level side to side and back to front.
Turning the feet clockwise retracts the feet. Turning the feet
clockwise loosens and extends them.
Level
01 installing your dryer
A strain relief must be used. Do not loosen the nuts already installed on the terminal block. Be sure they are
tight. Use a 3/8” (1cm) deep well socket.
To set the dryer to the same height as the washer, fully
retract the leveling feet by turning them counterclockwise,
then loosen the feet by turning them clockwise. Once
the dryer is the same height as the washer, follow the
directions above to level the dryer.
Leveling feet
Retract fully
Then loosen
Adjust the leveling feet only as much as necessary to level the dryer. Extending the leveling
feet more than necessary can cause the dryer to vibrate.
11. Make sure all gas connections (on gas models), exhaust, and electrical connections are complete. Plug
in your dryer, and then check its operation by using the checklist below.
12. For GAS MODELS ONLY
The burner may not ignite initially due to air in the gas line. Allowing your dryer to operate on a heat
setting will purge the line. If the gas does not ignite within 5 minutes, turn your dryer off and wait 5
minutes. Be sure the gas supply to your dryer has been turned on. To confirm gas ignition, check the
exhaust for heat.
FINAL INSTALLATION CHECKLIST

Place only one washload in your dryer at a time.
In mixed loads, heavy and lightweight fabrics will dry differently. This may result in lightweight fabrics
being dry while heavy fabrics remain damp at the end of a drying cycle.
Add one or more additional similar items to your dryer when you are drying only one or two items. This
improves the tumbling action and drying effi ciency.
Overloading restricts tumbling action, resulting in uneven drying as well as excessive wrinkling of some
fabrics.

CHECK THESE POINTS IF YOUR DRYER…
SOLUTION
Doesn’t run.
•
•
•
•
Make sure the door is latched shut.
Be sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
Press the Start/Pause button again if the door is opened during the
cycle.
Doesn’t heat.
•
•
•
•
•
Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
Select a heat setting other than Air Fluff.
On a gas dryer, check that the gas supply is on.
Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.
Dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the cycle.
Doesn’t dry.
•
•
Check all of the above, plus...
Be sure the exhaust hood outside the home can open and close
freely.
Check the exhaust system for lint buildup. Ducting should be
inspected and cleaned annually.
Use a 4” rigid metal exhaust duct.
Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require
repositioning to ensure even drying.
Check that the washer is draining properly to extract adequate water
from the load.
Load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Is noisy.
•
•
•
•
Dries unevenly.
•
•
Has an odor.

05 troubleshooting
PROBLEM
Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails, etc.
Remove promptly.
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element cycle on
and off during the drying cycle.
Be sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the installation
instruction.
It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of air moving
through the dryer drum and exhaust system.
Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be
completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected
dryness level. This is normal. Select the Very Dry setting if desired.
If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel
with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely
dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Household odors from paint, varnish, strong cleaners, etc. may enter
the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as the dryer
draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the tumbler, and
exhausts it outside.
When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely
before using the dryer.

PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Shuts off before load is dry
•
The dryer load is too small. Add more items or a few towels and
restart the cycle.
The dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.
•
Lint on clothes
•
Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. With some loads
that produce high amounts of lint, it may be necessary to clean the
filter during the cycle.
Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white cotton
towel) and they should be dried separately from clothes that are lint
trappers (for example, a pair of lack linen pants).
Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying
Check pockets thoroughly before washing and drying clothes.
•
•
•
Garments still wrinkled after •
Wrinkle-Care
•
Small loads of 1 to 4 items work best.
Load fewer garments. Load similar-type garments.
Odors remain in clothing
after Refresh.
•
Fabrics containing strong odors should be washed in a normal cycle.
Water drips from nozzle
when Steam-Care starts
•
This is steam condensation. The dripping water will stop after a short
time.
Sprayed water is not visible
during Steam-Care
•
Sprayed water is difficult to see when the door is closed
