USING THE RIM (REMOTE LAUNDRY MONITOR)
The RLM monitors status of your dryer. You can plug the display unit into any power outlet in your
home. The RLM Display Unit can be purchased separately for this dryer.
Your dryer provides sensor drying and time drying programs.
Sensor Dry : Dryer electronically sense laundry humidity and it automatically determines operation time based on the
dryness of the load and the selected program. At times, you can see sudden increase or decrease in operation time.
It happens because a sensor will detect laundry humidity within a certain period. Sudden change in operation time is not a
malfunction.
Time Dry : You can manualy set drying time to complete drying. Use dry performance if clothes are still damp after
sensor dry cycle is finished. Time Dry is more effective for heavyweight and bulky items such as king-size bed sheets and
thick work clothes.

GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
mafiunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current. This appliance is

conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance.
If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.

California Safe Drinkinq Water
and Toxic Enforcement Act
This act requires the governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to
cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm and requires businesses to warn customers
of potential exposure to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four
of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused
primarily by the incomplete combustion of
natural gas or LP fuels.
Properly adjusted dryers will minimize
combustion. Exposure to these substances can be
minimized further by properly venting the dryer
to the outdoors.
The following instructions will help guide you through the initial steps of setting up your dryer for use.
Please note that every section of this manual provides important information regarding the preparation and
use of your dryer, and it is important that you review this entire manual before proceeding with any
installation or use. More detailed instructions concerning electrical connections, gas connections, and
exhaust requirements are provided in other parts of this manual.

Effective dryer operation requires appropriate dryer
airflow. The adequacy of the airflow can be
measured by evaluating the static pressure. Static
pressure in the exhaust duct can be measured with a
manometer, placed on the exhaust duct
approximately
2 ft. (60.9 cm) from the dryer. Static
pressure in the exhaust duct should not exceed 0.6

instructions
and information
concerning
the requirements
for the gas supply and service for
gas dryers.
_
Important
Warning:
The gas supply and service for a gas dryer must comply with all local codes
and ordinances.
In the absence of any local codes or ordinances in your area, the gas supply and service for your gas
dryer must comply with the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1iNFPA
54.
1. Gas supply requirements:
Liquefied Petroleum
(L.P.) Gas (2,500 Btu/ft3 (93.1 MJ/m3)) service
must be provided
at 10 + 1.5 in. water column

2. Do not attempt to connect Dryer to Liquified
Petroleum (LP Gas) Gas service without a
qualified
professional.
3. Isolate the dryer from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shut-off
valve, during any pressure testing of the gas
supply system at test pressure
than 2/1 psi (3.45 kPa).
equal to or less
4. Supply Line Requirements.
Your laundry room
must have a rigid gas supply line to your dryer.
In the United States, an individual manual shutoff
valve MUST be installed within at least 6 feet
(1.8m) of the dryer, in accordance with the
National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1. A 1/8 in.
N.P.T. pipe plug must be installed
as shown.
.
If using a rigid pipe, the rigid pipe should be 1/2
inch IPS. If acceptable under local codes and
ordinances and when acceptable to your gas
supplier, 3/8 inch approved tubing may be used
where lengths are less than 20 feet (6.1 m).
Linger tubing should be used for lengths in
excess of 20 feet (6.1m). It is also important that
you use pipe joint compound that is insoluble in
LP gas.
6. To reduce the danger of gas leaks, explosion,
fire, please follow and observe the following
instructions and WARNINGS.
and
• Connect the dryer to the type of gas shown on the
nameplate.
• Use new flexible
stainless
steel connectors.
• Use Teflon tape and pipe joint compound
insoluble in LP gas on all pipe threads.
• Purge gas supply of air and sediment before
connecting the gas supply to the dryer; in order to
prevent gas valve contamination.
Before
tightening connection between gas supply and
dryer, purge remaining

Following are important instructions and information concerning the exhaust requirements for your dryer.
,_t Important
Warning:
To reduce the risk of fire, combustion, or accumulation
of combustible gases, DO NOT
exhaust dryer air into an enclosed and unventilated area, such as an attic, wall, ceiling, crawl space, chimney, gas
vent, or concealed space of a building. To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT exhaust the dryer with plastic or thin foil
ducting.

Exhaust
Requirements
and Instructions:
1. Venting materials are not provided with the dryer
and you should obtain the necessary venting
materials locally. For example, the outer end of
exhaust pipe must have a weather hood with hinged
dampers to prevent back-draft when the dryer is not
in use.
2. The exhaust duct must be t_ur inches (10.2 cm) in
diameter with no obstructions.
The exhaust duct
should be kept as short as possible. Make sure to
clean any old ducts before installing your new dryer.
3. Rigid or semi-rigid metal ducting is recommended
t_r use as transition ducting between the dryer and
and the wall. In special installations when it is
impossible to make a connection with the above
recommendations,
then a UL-listed flexible metal
transition duct may be used between the dryer and
wall connection only. The use of this ducting will
affect dry time.
4. DO NOT use sheet metal screws on exhaust pipe
joints or other fastening means which extend into
the duct that could catch lint and reduce the
efficiency of the exhaust system. Secure all joints
with duct tape.
5. To maximize operating results, please observe the
duct length limitations noted in the chart above.

Exhaust
and Dryer Maintenance
Cleaning
the Lint Screen
1. Clean the lint filter either before drying each load
or after drying each load. Always make sure the
lint filter is clean before starting a new load,
because a clogged lint filter may increase drying
times.
Disconnect the dryerls electric power
prior to any cleaning or maintenance:
1. After one year of use, the interior and complete

exhaust system of the dryer should be examined
and cleaned if necessary.
2. Before one year of use, when drying performance
has become unsatisfactory,
please examine and

.
clean the exhaust duct for better drying
performance.
3. Check the weather hoods frequently to ensure
the dampers are moving freely, that the dampers
are not pushed in and that nothing has been set
against the dampers.

7. Ordinarily,
the dryer drum will need no care.
Wipe the exterior of the dryer as required, and
always wipe the exterior of the dryer in the event
any detergent, bleach, or other washing products
is spilled on the dryer.
8. Clean the control panel with a damp cloth as
necessary. Warning: spray pre-wash products
may damage the finish of the control panel.
9. Please clean the lint filter either before drying
each load or after drying each load.
10. Always make sure the lint filter is clean before
starting a new load, because a clogged lint filter
may increase drying times.
11. Annually remove the lint filter and attach it to
the vacuum duct. See item #2 above.
12. Please note that the wiring diagram is provided
inside the dryer control hood. Label all wires
prior to disconnection
when servicing the dryer,
because wiring errors can cause serious injury
to you and your dryer.
