California Safe Drinking 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 incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized
further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
wWarning
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire, explosion, or electric
shock, or to prevent property damage, injury to persons, or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
wWarning
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, follow all industry recommended safety procedures including the use of long
sleeved gloves and safety glasses. Failure to follow all of the safety warnings in this manual could result in property
damage, injury to persons, or death.
Exhaust/Ducting:
• Gas dryers MUST be exhausted to the outside.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire or
death.
• The dryer exhaust system must be exhausted
to the outside of the dwelling. If the dryer is not
exhausted outdoors, some fine lint and large
amounts of moisture will be expelled into the
laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area of
the home can create a health and fire hazard.
• Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4-inch
diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet or for
exhausting to the outside. Use of plastic or other
combustible ductwork can cause a fire. Punctured
ductwork can cause a fire if it collapses or becomes
otherwise restricted in use or during installation.
• Ductwork is not provided with the dryer, and you
should obtain the necessary ductwork locally. The
end cap should have hinged dampers to prevent
backdraft when the dryer is not in use. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire or death.
• The exhaust duct must be 4 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. Failure to follow these instructions can result in
fire or death.
• Rigid or semi-rigid metal ducting is recommended
for use between the dryer and the wall. In special
installations when it is impossible to make a
connection with the above recommendations, a ULlisted flexible metal transition duct may be used
between the dryer and wall connection only. The
use of this ducting will affect drying time. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire or death.
• DO NOT use sheet metal screws or other fasteners
which extend into the duct that could catch lint and
reduce the efficiency of the exhaust system. Secure
all joints with duct tape. For complete details, follow
the Installation Instructions. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR STEAM FUNCTIONS

to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
Failure to follow these instructions can create an
electric shock hazard and/or a fire hazard.
• The dryer should always be plugged into its own
individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate. This provides
the best performance and also prevents overloading
house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard
from overheated wires.
• Never unplug your dryer by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out
from the outlet. The power cord can be damaged,
resulting in a risk of fire and electric shock.
• Repair or replace immediately all power cords that

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Special Requirements for
Manufactured or Mobile Homes
Any installation in a manufactured or mobile home must
comply with the Manufactured Home Construction and
Safety Standards Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 or Standard
CAN/CSA Z240 MH and local codes and ordinances. If
you are uncertain whether your proposed installation
will comply with these standards, please contact a
service and installation professional for assistance.
• A gas dryer must be permanently attached to the floor.
• The electrical connection for an electric dryer must
be a 4-wire connection. More detailed information
concerning the electrical connection is provided in the
section Connecting Electric Dryers.
• To reduce the risk of combustion and fire, the dryer
must be vented to the outside.
• DO NOT vent the dryer under a manufactured home or
mobile home.
• Electric dryers may be vented to the outside using the
back, left, right, or bottom panel.
• Gas dryers may be vented to the outside using the
back, left, or bottom panel. Gas dryers may not be
vented to the outside using the right side panel
because of the burner housing.
• The dryer exhaust duct must be affixed securely to
the manufactured or mobile home structure, and the
exhaust duct must be made of a material that will resist
fire and combustion.
It is recommended that you use a rigid or flexible metal
duct.
• DO NOT connect the dryer exhaust duct to any other
duct, vent, chimney, or other exhaust duct.
• Make sure the dryer has adequate access to outside
fresh air to ensure proper operation. The opening for
outside fresh air must be at least 25 sq. in. (163 cm2).
• It is important that the clearance of the duct from any
combustible construction be at least 2 inches (5 cm).
When venting the dryer to the outdoors, the dryer can
be installed with a clearance of 1 inch (2.5 cm) at the
sides and back of the dryer.
Final Installation Check
Once you have completed the installation of the dryer
and it is in its final location, confirm proper operation
with the following tests and Installation Test (Duct
Check) on the following page.
Testing dryer heating
GAS MODELS
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF button to turn
the dryer on, and start the dryer on a heat setting.
When the dryer starts, the igniter should ignite the main
burner.
NOTE
If all air is not purged from the gas line, the gas igniter
may turn off before the main burner ignites. If this
happens, the igniter will reattempt gas ignition after
approximately two minutes.
ELECTRIC MODELS
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF button to turn
the dryer on, and start the dryer on a heat setting. The
exhaust air should be warm after the dryer has been
operating for 3 minutes.
Checking airflow
Effective dryer operation requires proper 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
inches (1.5 cm). The dryer should be checked while the
dryer is running with no load.
Checking levelness
Once the dryer is in its final location, recheck the dryer
to be sure it is level. Make sure it is level front to back
and side to side, and that all 4 leveling feet are firmly on
the floor.
• Please be aware that venting materials are not supplied
with the dryer. You should obtain the venting materials
necessary for proper installation.

Installation Test (Duct Check)
• Your dryer features Flow SenseTM, an innovative
sensing system that automatically detects blockages
and restrictions in dryer ductwork. Keeping ductwork
clean of lint buildup and free of restrictions allows
clothes to dry faster and reduces energy use.
4. C
heck the display for results.
During the two minute test cycle, monitor the Flow
SenseTM display on the control panel. If no bars
are displayed, when the cycle ends, the exhaust
system is adequate. If the exhaust system is severely
restricted, the display will show four bars.
Other problems may also be shown with error codes.
Refer to the next page for error code details and
solutions.
ENGLISH
Once you have completed the installation of the dryer,
use this test to make sure the condition of the exhaust
system is adequate for proper operation of the dryer.
This test should be performed to alert you to any serious
problems in the exhaust system of your home.
NOTE
The dryer should be cool before starting this test. If
the dryer was warmed up during installation, run the
AIR DRY cycle for a few minutes to reduce the interior
temperature.
To activate the Installation test:
1. Remove the drying rack and literature, and then
close the door.
Do not load anything in the drum for this test, as it
may affect the accuracy of the results.
NO BARS:
OK
FOUR BARS:
RESTRICTED
Four bars indicates that the exhaust system is severely
restricted. Have the system checked immediately, as
performance will be poor.
5. End of cycle.
At the end of the test cycle,
will display.
The test cycle will end and the dryer will shut off
automatically after a short delay.
2. Press and hold the SIGNAL ON/OFF and TEMP.

exhaust system for restrictions and damage. Repair or
replace the exhaust system as needed.
Restricted or Blocked Airflow
Avoid long runs or runs with multiple elbows or
bends.
NOTE
When the dryer is first installed, this test should be
performed to alert you to any existing problems with
the exhaust duct in your home. However, since the
test performed during normal operation provides
more accurate information on the condition of the
exhaust duct than does the installation test, the number of bars displayed during the two tests may not be
the same.
Do not interrupt the test cycle, as this could result in
the wrong results.
Even if no bars are displayed during the test cycle,
some restrictions may still be present in the exhaust
system. Refer to the Venting the Dryer section of this
manual for complete exhaust system and venting
requirements.

Stacking kit installation
This stacking kit includes:
• Two (2) side rails
• One (1) front rail
• Four (4) screws
Tools Needed for Installation:
• Phillips screwdriver
1. Make sure the surface of the washer is clean and dry.
Remove paper backing from the tape on one of the
stacking kit side brackets.
2. Fit the side bracket to the side of the washer top
as shown in the below illustration. Firmly press the
adhesive area of the bracket to the washer surface.

the back side of the bracket. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to
attach the other side bracket.
To ensure safe and secure installation, please observe
the following instructions.
wWarning
• Incorrect installation can cause serious accidents.
• The weight of the dryer and the height of
installation make this stacking procedure too risky
for one person. Two or more people are required
when installing the stacking kit. There is a risk of
serious back injury or other injuries.
• Do not use the stacking kit with a gas dryer in
potentially unstable conditions such as a mobile
home. Failure to follow this warning can result in
serious injury.
• Place the washer on a solid, stable, level floor
capable of supporting the weight of both
appliances. Failure to follow this warning can result in
serious injury.
• Do NOT stack the washer on top of the dryer. Failure
to follow this warning can result in serious injury.
• If appliances are already installed, disconnect them
from all power, water, or gas lines and from draining
or venting connections. Failure to do so can result in
electrical shock, fire, explosion, or death.
