Gas supply: This dryer is equipped for use with Natural gas.
Dryer can be converted to L.P. gas. When rigid pipe is used
it should be 1/2" IPS. When acceptable to the gas supplier
and local codes, 3/8" approved tubing may be used for
lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m). For lengths over 20 ft (6.1
m), larger tubing should be used. Pipe-joint compounds
resistant to the action of L.P. gas must be used. An
individual manual shutoff valve must be installed within 6
ft (1.8 m) of the dryer in accordance with the National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
Electrical: A 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, 15 or 20 amp fused
electrical supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker and a separate circuit are recommended.
Water (Steam models only): The dryer must be connected
to the cold water faucet using new inlet hoses. Do not use
old hoses. Do not overtighten. Damage to the coupling can
result.
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the outside. 4"
(102 mm) diameter vent is required. Rigid or flexible metal
exhaust vent must be used. Do not use plastic or metal
foil vet. Exhaust hood must be at least 12" (305 mm) from
the ground or any object that may be in the path of the
exhaust.
