IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
,WARNING - To reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons when using your appliance,
follow basic precautions, including
the following:
Read all instructions before using
the appliance.
Do not dry articles that have been
previously cleaned, washed,
soaked or spotted with gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents or other
flammable or explosive substances.
They may give off vapors that could
ignite or explode.

Do not install or store this
appliance where it will be exposed
to the weather.
Do not tamper
with the controls.
Do not repair or replace any part of
the appliance or attempt any
servicing unless specifically
recommended in these operating
instructions. Repairs to electrical
appliances should only be performed
by qualified personnel. Incorrectly
repaired machines may pose a
considerable risk to the user.
Do not use heat to dry articles

What if the program stops, the "Anti-crease / End" indicator lights and the
buzzer sounds?
Possible fault
Fix
The drum is empty.
Load laundry into the dryer. The dryer will not
operate when the drum is empty. Single
items should be dried with "Sturdy" or a
timed program and dry items in the "Fluff"
program.
What if the "Filter/Vent" fault indicator is lit?
Possible fault
Fix
The lint filter is clogged.
Clean the lint filters. See "Dryer care".
The exhaust hose or the
connection is clogged with lint.
Remove lint and check the exhaust system
for blockages.
The air supply in the room is
insufficient.
Open a window or door to increase airflow.
17
Frequently asked questions
What if the "Filter/Vent" indicator lights after cleaning the exhaust system?
Possible fault
Fix
The dryer is not operating efficiently
because the duct hose is too long.
Check the exhaust length and diameter
(see "How to calculate the effective
duct length"). A long exhaust hose will
increase program times and energy
consumption.
If the exhaust hose cannot be
shortened, the indicator can be turned
off by a service technician.
What if the program runs too long or stops?
Possible fault
Fix
The airflow is insufficient in the area of
the dryer.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded.
In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance
for electric current. This appliance is
equipped with a cord having an
equipment grounding 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.
WARNING – Improper connection of
the equipment grounding conductor
can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or
service representative or personnel
if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
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.
The dryer comes with a 5 ft long, 12/4
AWG cord and a NEMA 14-30 P plug.
It should be connected to a
120/208-240 V, 15 A, 60 Hz AC power
supply. A 3 pole-4 wire grounding
power outlet (NEMA type 14-30 R) is
necessary.
EASY INSTALLATION KIT
If you do not have a dedicated 15 Amp
line for this appliance, but you have the
standard, 120/208-240 V - 30 Amp,
60 Hz AC outlet, you can use the "Easy
Installation Kit", which allows you to use
that line to connect the dryer to power.

Leveling the dryer
The machine can be leveled by turning
the legs clockwise or counterclockwise
as necessary.
The dryer must be level to ensure safe
and proper operation. Minor
discrepancies do not have an adverse
effect on operation.
27
Installation
Determining the position of the
exhaust connection
The exhaust connection can be left at
the rear of the dryer (factory standard)
or moved to the left or right side of the
dryer.
Changing the position of the exhaust
connection
^ Remove the exhaust connection
cover on the left or right side of the
dryer.
^ Do this by inserting a screwdriver into
each raised flap and lifting upwards,
as shown.
This cover is no longer needed.
28
^ Press the supplied cover firmly into
the rear opening.
^ To remove the cap insert a
screwdriver between the machine
and the cap and lift upwards, the cap
will then pop out of place.
Installation
Installation tips
An airflow gap of 3/8" (10 mm) must
be provided between the machine
and the floor. This airflow gap must
not be blocked by a toekick or thick
piled carpets.
Adapter
A ring adapter is supplied with the
machine, and is compatible with all
venting systems. The adapter helps
prevent heat from escaping, and heats
the air in the drum faster.
Do not install the dryer next to a
refrigerator. The warm air exhausting
from the dryer can affect the
thermostat of the refrigerator,
causing it to run continuously.
^ The adapter, 1, is inserted into the
connector, 2.
Using the adapter with a maximum duct
length of 33 ft (10 m) will result in
shorter drying times and energy
savings.
29
Installation
Exhaust connection with a
flexible exhaust hose or rigid
pipe
Window connection
Using the connector supplied, an
exhaust hose (4" [100 mm]
diameter) can be installed.
Necessary materials:
– a wall or window duct
– an exhaust hose made of approved
non-flammable material
1 Window connection (installed in a
plexiglass pane)
2 Connector for the flexible exhaust hose
Wall connection with rigid pipe
^ If the duct length is more than 33 ft
(10 m), remove the ring adapter, 1,
from the connector, 2. If the duct
length is less than 33 ft (10 m), leave
the ring adapter in to improve time
and energy efficiency.
^ Install the connector, 2, with the
exhaust hose or pipe, 3, to the dryer.

How to calculate the effective
duct length
The overall duct length will determine
the duct diameter.
^ Measure the actual duct length
needed to go from the dryer’s
exhaust connection to the vent outlet:
1. Establish the number of elbows or
bends necessary, noting the type of
bend, angle and radius involved
(see Table).
2. Add the additional duct length (as
derived by using the values
specified in the table) and the actual
duct length to get the effective
length.
Note:
Maximum effective duct lengths:
4" (100 mm) diameter
66 ft (20 m)
5" (125 mm) diameter
132 ft (40 m)
6" (150 mm) diameter
328 ft (100 m)
Using the ring adapter up to an
effective duct length of 33 ft (10 m) and
a standard duct diameter of 4"
(100 mm) will provide optimal drying
times and energy consumption.
Do not use the ring adapter if the
effective duct length is more than 33 ft
(10 m).
Effective duct lengths over 66 ft (20 m)
require a larger duct diameter.
Longer ducts may lead to slight
decreases in dryer efficiency if the
necessary duct diameter is not
employed.

Tips about the ductwork
– Check with your local building code
to determine the maximum allowable
duct length.
– Use flexible metal pipe or rigid metal
pipe for venting. Non-metallic flexible
hose should not be used, it is a
potential fire hazard.
– For best drying results avoid extra
long ducting with too many bends,
angles or tight corners.
– The shorter the exhaust ductwork,
the more efficient the dryer will be.
Expelled air is slowed down in the
ducts due to friction against the inner
walls. The shorter and smoother the
inner walls are, the less friction will
be created.
– An elbow or bend creates more
friction than a straight duct. An
additional duct length factor must be
added for each elbow or bend (see
Table). This factor expresses the
resistance of the bend in terms of a
straight length of duct.
The additional length factor is then
added to the existing duct to give the
effective length.
A larger duct diameter helps reduce
friction. Therefore the duct diameter
and length should be increased
simultaneously.
