Do Not permit installation of clothes dryers in
garages, closets, mobile homes and sleeping
quarters. Contact your local building inspector.
Check location where washer/dryer will
be installed. Proper installation is your
responsibility. The washer/dryer must not

weather, Make sure you have
everything necessary for correct
installation.
Check utilities: Proper water and

To contact a qualified electrical
installer.
To assure that the electrical
installation is adequate.
electrical installation is adequate and in
conformance with the National
Electrical Code, ANSVNFPA 70 - latest
edition*, and all local codes and
ordinances.
Copies oi the standards listed above may be
obtained from:

Failure to do so could result in death
or serious injury.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrical ground is required on this
washer/dryer.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
Do Not modify the power supply cord
plug. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
Use a new 30-ampere power supply
cord kit. Do Not reuse an old power
supply cord. Possible electrical shock
or fire hazard could occur if old power
supply cord is used.
Do Not have a fuse in the neutral or
grounding circuit. A fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit could
result in an electrical shock.
Do Not use an extension cord with
this washer/dryer.
Check with a qualified electrician if
you are not sure washer/dryer is
properly grounded.
Fire Hazard
For your safety, the information in
this manual must be followed to
minimize the risk of fire or explosion
or to prevent property damage,
personal injury or loss of life.
- Do Not store or use gasoline or
other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or
any other appliance.
- Never install washer/dryer up
against draperies or curtains or
on carpet.
- Keep any and all items from
falling or collecting behind the
washer/dryer.
- Replace all access panels before
operating washer/dryer.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in a fire.

needed for installation:
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in death or serious injury.
Power supply cord
Local codes may permit the use of a U.L.listed, 120/240-volt minimum, 30-ampere,
dryer power supply cord kit (pigtail).
Power supply cord should be Type SRD or
SRDTand be at least four feet long. The
wires that connect to the dryer must end
with ring terminals or spade terminals with
upturned ends. A 3/4”, U.L.-listed strain
relief must be installed where the power
supply cord connects to the dryer (see
Figures 1 and 2).

supply until the washer/dryer is
permanently grounded.
* Grounded
cold water pipe must have
metal continuity to electrical ground
and not be interrupted
by plastic, rubber
or other electrical insulating connectors
such as hoses, fittings, washers or gaskets
(including water meter or pump). Any
electrical
insulating connector

Fire Hazard
Do Not use non-metal, flexible duct.
Do Not use metal duct smaller than
4 inches in diameter.
Do Not use exhaust hoods with
magnetic latches.
Check that exhaust system is not
longer than specified. Exhaust
systems longer than specified will:
-Accumulate
lint.
-Shorten the life of the product.
-Reduce performance and result in
longer drying times and increased
energy usage.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in a fire.
Do Not exhaust the dryer into a
chimney, furnace cold air duct, attic
or crawl space, or any other duct
used for venting.
Clean the exhaust system every year.
Do Not install flexible duct in walls,
ceiling or floors.
Accumulated lint could cause a fire
or moisture damage.
Exhausting your dryer indoors is Not
recommended. The moisture and lint
indoors may cause:
-Lint to gather inside and around
the dryer and could cause a fire.
-Moisture
damage to woodwork,
furniture, paint, wallpaper, carpet,
etc.
-Housecleaning
problems and
possible health problems.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in fire damage, personal
injury or health problems.
Connect separate copper grounding wire from
external grounding connector to approved
ground.

cord or direct wire cable to the
center, silver-colored terminal screw
of the terminal block. Connect the
other wires to the outer terminals.
Tighten screws (see Figure 12).
6. Connect a separate copper

See “Connection details” for
detailed instructions.

8. Replace the terminal block cover.
Panel C
If using an existing exhaust system,
clean lint from entire length of exhaust
system. Make sure exhaust hood is not
plugged wifh lint.
The exhaust system should be inspected
and cleaned yearly.
Replace any vinyl or metallized plastic
foil exhaust duct with rigid metal or
flexible metal duct.
Use duct tape to seal
all joints. Do Not use
screws to secure duct.

d
Four-inch rigid metal pipe is preferred.
Plan installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns.
Metal flexible duct should be fully
extended and supported when the
dryer is in its final position. DO NOT KINK
OR CRUSH THE DUCT. The metal flexible
duct must be fully extended to allow
adequate exhaust air to flow.
Allow as much room as possible when
using elbows or making turns. Bend duct
gradually to avoid kinking. Remove
excess flexible duct to avoid sagging
and kinking that may result in reduced
air flow.
The exhaust duct can
be routed up, down,
left, right or straight out
the back of the
washer/dryer. Space
requirements are
provided on Panel G
and on the rear panel
of the washer/dryer.
Use the straightest

Mobile home installation
This washer/dryer is suitable for mobile
home installations. The installation of the
washer/dryer must conform to the
Manufactured Home Construction and
Safety, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly
the Federal Standard for Mobile Homes
Construction and Safety, Tile 24. HUD
Part 280, latest edition).
Maximum length of the exhaust system
depends upon the type of duct used,
number of elbows and the type of
exhaust hood. The maximum length for
both rigid and flexible duct is shown in
the chart.

For exhaust configurations other than
those listed in the chart, the back
pressure MUST not exceed 0.2 inches
water column at the back of the
washer/dryer. The back pressure should
be checked by a qualified technician.
For exhaust systems not covered by the
exhaust length chart, see Service
Manual, Part No. 603197, available from
your authorized parts distributor.
Service check: The back pressure in any
exhaust system used must not exceed
0.2 inches of water column measured
with an inclined manometer at the
point that the exhaust duct connects to
the dryer.
Exhausting the dryer outside is
recommended.
Recessed installation
that is not exhausted outside must use
Exhaust Deflector Kit Part No. 694609,
available from your authorized parts
distributor. See “Recessed and closet
installation instructions,” Panel G, for
unobstructed air opening requirements,
If the washer/dryer is installed in a
confined area such as a bedroom,
bathroom or closet, it must be
exhausted to the outside and provision
must be made for enough air for
ventilation. Check governing codes and
ordinances. Also refer to the “Recessed
and closet installation instructions” on
Panel G.
An exhaust hood
should cap the
exhaust duct to
prevent exhausted
air from returning

into dryer. The
mlnlmum

outlet of the
hood must be at least 12 inches from
the ground or any object that may be in
the path of the exhaust.
Four-inch exhaust hood is preferred.
However, a 2-l/2-inch exhaust hood
may be used. A 2-l/2-inch exhaust
hood creates greater back pressure
than other hood types. For permanent
installation, a stationary exhaust system
is required.
Exhausting the dryer
