Important Safety Information
! WARNING
To avoid risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury, or death when using your dryer, follow these basic precautions:
1. Read all instructions before
using dryer.
2. Install dryer according to
Installation Instructions. Refer to
the Grounding Instructions in the
Installation Instructions for
proper grounding of the dryer.
3. Do not dry articles that have
been cleaned in, washed in,
soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents,
or other flammable or explosive
substances. Vapors could ignite
or explode.
4. Do not use dryer to dry clothes
which have traces of any
flammable substance, such as
vegetable oil, cooking oil,
machine oil, flammable
chemicals, thinner, etc., or
anything containing wax or
chemicals, such as mops and
cleaning cloths. Flammable
substances may cause fabric to
catch fire by itself.
5. Do not store or use gasoline or
other flammable vapors and
liquids near this or any other
appliance.
6. Do not allow children to play on
or in dryer. Close supervision of
children is necessary when
dryer is used near children, a
safety rule for all appliances.
7. Before dryer is removed from
service or discarded, remove
doors to drying compartment.
8. Do not reach into dryer if
cylinder is revolving.
9. Do not install or store dryer
where it will be exposed to water
and/or weather.
10. Do not tamper with dryer
controls.
11. Do not repair or replace any part
of dryer or attempt any service,
unless specifically recommended
in user-maintenance instructions
or in published user-repair
instructions that you understand
and have skills to carry out, if you
are a consumer.
12. To reduce risk of electric shock or
fire, do not use extension cords or
adapters to connect dryer to
electrical power source.
13. Use the dryer only for its intended
purpose, drying clothes.
14. Always disconnect dryer from
electrical supply before
attempting any service.
Disconnect power cord by
grasping the plug, not the cord.
15. Do not use heat to dry articles
containing foam rubber or
similarly textured rubberlike
materials.
16. Always clean the lint filter after
every load. A layer of lint in the
filter reduces drying efficiency and
prolongs drying time.
17. Use only fabric softeners or
products to eliminate static that
are appropriate for automatic
dryers.
18. Keep your dryer in good condition.
Bumping or dropping dryer can
damage safety features. If
damage occurs, have dryer
checked by qualified service
technician.
19. Replace worn power cords and/or
loose plugs.
20. Do not tumble fiberglass curtains
and draperies unless the label
says it can be done. If they are
dried, wipe out the cylinder with a
damp cloth to remove particles of
fiberglass.
21. Always read and follow
manufacturer’s instructions on
packages of laundry aids. Heed
all warnings or precautions. To
reduce risk of poisoning or
chemical burns, keep products
away from children at all times,
preferably, in a locked cabinet.
22. Never operate dryer with guards
and/or panels removed.
23. Do not operate dryer with
missing or broken parts.
24. Do not bypass safety devices.
25. Keep area around the exhaust
opening and adjacent
surrounding areas free from
accumulation of lint, dust, and
dirt.
26. Interior of dryer and exhaust duct
should be cleaned periodically
by qualified service personnel.
27. Dryer will not operate with
loading door open. DO NOT
bypass door safety switch by
permitting dryer to operate with
door open. Dryer will stop
tumbling when door is opened.
Do not use dryer if it does not
stop tumbling when door is
opened or starts tumbling
without pressing or turning the
START mechanism. Remove the
dryer from use and call
the service person.
28. Remove laundry immediately
after the dryer stops.
29. ALWAYS follow the fabric care
instructions supplied by the
garment manufacturer.

About Ground Wires
In the event of an electrical short circuit, a ground wire
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape
wire for the electric current.
Standard accepted color coding for ground wires is green
or green with a yellow stripe.
Grounding wires and wires colored like grounding wires
are NOT to be used as current carrying conductors.
This equipment MUST be grounded. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the
electrical current. This unit is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
! WARNING
Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt
exists as to whether the equipment is properly grounded.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury
or death, all wiring and grounding must conform with
the latest edition of the National Electric Code, or the
Canadian Electrical Code, and such local regulations
as might apply. It is the customer’s responsibility to
have the wiring and fuses checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure your home has adequate
electrical power to operate the dryer.
Do not use an extension cord. If the product power cord
is too short, have a qualified electrician install a three–
slot receptacle. This unit should be plugged into a
separate 60 hertz circuit with the electrical rating as
shown on the serial plate.

Proper Grounding and Polarization for 120 Volts
Wall Outlets
For the safety of our customers and the service technician ALL gas dryers have a three–prong power cord and
MUST be connected to a properly polarized and grounded
wall outlet. This information was written for those who do
not understand grounding and polarization of a wall
outlet. A 120 VAC wall outlet must always be wired as
shown below.
Ground
Neutral
L1
Neutral
side
0
V.A.C.
115–12
V.A.C.
Round
grounding
prong
115–12
V.A.C.
Explanation
Polarization–This means that the larger slot must be
neutral and the small slot must be hot (live).
Mispolarized–The outlet is miswired so that the larger
slot is hot (live) and the smaller slot is neutral.
Grounded–This means the round hole connection is
connected to ground through a connection to the main
power panel.
Ungrounded–The round hole connection is not
connected to a ground and/or the main power panel.

VAC. The failure of a component in this system will usually be
indicated by one of three symptoms:
1) The igniter does not glow. If the igniter does not heat up,
remove power and using an ohmmeter, check the following:
•
Open flame sensor.
•
Open igniter.
•
Shorted booster coil.
•
Open wiring.
•
Bad motor switch (Neutral supply).
•

check for the following:
•
Radiant sensor contacts opening prematurely.
•
Weak gas valve coil may open when stressed by higher
temperatures.
•
Weak Hi-Limit.
•
Poor venting.
•
Bad drum seals.

screws or other fastening means
which extend into the duct to attach
exhaust pipe joints. They could
catch lint and reduce the efficiency
of the exhaust system.
IMPORTANT: Keep exhaust duct
as short as possible.
Be sure old ducts are clean before
installing your new dryer.
Exhaust System Materials
Use
Exhaust duct must be four inches
(10.2 cm) in diameter without
obstructions. Rigid metal duct is
recommended. Non-combustible

Important Safety Information
About Ground Wires
In the event of an electrical short
circuit, a ground wire reduces the
risk of electric shock by providing
an escape wire for the electric
current.
Standard accepted color coding for
ground wires is green or green
with a yellow stripe.
Grounding wires and wires colored
like grounding wires are NOT to be
used as current carrying conductors.
Grounding Instructions
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system,
or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors
and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dryer.
• Power cord (pigtail) is not supplied with electric dryer. Type of pigtail and
gauge of wire must conform to local codes and instructions.
Method of wiring dryer is optional and subject to local code requirements.
• Connect dryer to power supply with MAXIMUM RATED VOLTAGE listed on
the nameplate.
• Use copper wire only. Shorter than 15' (4.5 m) use 10 A.W.G. Longer than
15' (4.5 m) use 8 A.W.G.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, the
dryer MUST be exhausted to
the outdoors. DO NOT exhaust
dryer air into a window well,
gas vent, chimney or enclosed,
unventilated area, such as an
attic, wall, ceiling, crawl space
under a building or concealed

Installation Requirements
Before You Install…
Consider
Description
Location
Use dimensions shown in manual to determine space needed for installation.
Place dryer on a solid floor in an area with an adequate air supply. A closet door
must have a supply air vent of 80 sq. in. (517 sq. cm) minimum.
Leveling legs can be adjusted from inside the dryer with a 1⁄4" driver. All four legs
must rest firmly on the floor so the weight of the dryer is evenly distributed. The
dryer must not rock.
Dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water
and/or weather.
Electrical Requirements
Dryer needs a 3- or 4-wire 120/240 volt, 30 amp, 60 hertz, 1 phase electrical supply.
Refer to serial plate for specific requirements. Wiring diagram is located in control
hood.
Exhaust
Use rigid or semi-rigid duct and exhaust the dryer to the outside by the shortest
route possible. Failure to exhaust dryer properly will void warranty.
• Dryer exhaust duct must be secured to the mobile home structure. Dryer exhaust
MUST NOT terminate under the mobile home.
• Exhaust duct must not be connected to any other duct, vent or chimney.
• Venting materials are not supplied with the dryer (obtain locally). Do not use plastic or thin foil flexible ducting.
• Static pressure in the dryer’s exhaust duct should be no greater than .6 inches
(1.5 cm). Check with dryer running and no load. This can be measured with a
manometer placed on the exhaust duct approximately two feet (61 cm) from the
dryer.
For the best exhaust system:
• Locate dryer so exhaust duct is as short as possible.
• Verify old ducts are cleaned before installing new dryer.
• Use 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter rigid or flexible metal duct.
• Use duct tape on all joints.
• Use as few elbows as possible.

Installation Requirements
Before You Install…
Consider
Description
Location
Use dimensions shown in manual to determine space needed for installation.
Place dryer on a solid floor in an area with an adequate air supply. A closet door
must have a supply air vent of 80 sq. in. (517 sq. cm) minimum.
No other fuel burning appliance should be installed in the same closet with the dryer.
Dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water
and/or weather.
Manufactured (mobile) home installation must conform to the Manufactured
Home Construction and Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR, Part 32-80 or Standard
CAN/CSA-Z240 MH.
Gas dryers must be permanently attached to the floor at the time of installation.
Order No. 526P3 Dryer Installation Kit for a manufactured (mobile) home installation.
Electrical Requirements
Dryer requires 120 volt, 15 amp, 60 Hz power supply and 3-prong grounding plug.
Power cord is approximately 69" long. Do not operate other appliances on the same
circuit when this appliance is operating. Refer to serial plate for specific requirements. Wiring diagram is located in control hood.
Gas
Natural Gas Pressure, 1000 Btu/ ft3 (37.3 MJ/m3), service must be supplied at 6.5 +
1.5 inch water column pressure. L.P. (propane) Gas Pressure, 2,500 Btu/ ft3 (93.1
MJ/m3), service must be supplied at 10 + 1.5 inch water column pressure.
NOTE: The dryer and its appliance main gas valve must be disconnected from the
gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures
in excess of 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa). Dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing the equipment shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas
supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3,45 kPa).
When connecting to a gas line, an equipment shutoff valve must be installed within
6' (1.8 m) of the dryer. An 1/8" N.P.T. pipe plug must be installed.
The gas service to a gas dryer must conform with the local codes and ordances or in
the absence of local codes and ordinances, with the latest edition of the National
Fuel Gas Code ANSIZ223.1/NFPA 54 or the CAN/CGA-B149, National Gas
Installation Code. LPK1 Sales Accessory (L.P./Propane Gas Conversion Kit 649P3)
must be installed. DO NOT connect dryer to L.P./Propane Gas Service without
converting the gas valve.
Exhaust
Use rigid or semi-rigid duct and exhaust the dryer to the outside by the shortest
route possible. Failure to exhaust dryer properly will void warranty.
• Dryer exhaust duct must be secured to the mobile home structure. Dryer exhaust
MUST NOT terminate under the mobile home.
• Exhaust duct must not be connected to any other duct, vent or chimney.
• Venting materials are not supplied with the dryer (obtain locally). Do not use plastic or thin foil flexible ducting.
• Static pressure in the dryer’s exhaust duct should be no greater than .6 inches (1.5
cm). Check with dryer running and no load. This can be measured with a manometer placed on the exhaust duct approximately two feet (61 cm) from the dryer.
For the best exhaust system:
• Locate dryer so exhaust duct is as short as possible.
• Verify old ducts are cleaned before installing new dryer.
• Use 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter rigid or flexible metal duct.
• Use duct tape on all joints.
• Use as few elbows as possible.

Close the loading door, start the
dryer in a heat setting (refer to User’s
Guide) The dryer will start, ignitor will
glow red, and main burner will ignite.
IMPORTANT: If all air is not purged
out of gas line, gas ignitor may go
off before gas is ignited. If this
happens, after approximately two
minutes ignitor will again attempt
gas ignition.
After the dryer has operated for
approximately 5 minutes, observe
burner flame through lower front
panel. Adjust air shutter to obtain a
soft, uniform blue flame. (A lazy,
yellow tipped flame indicates lack of
air. A harsh, roaring, very blue flame
indicates too much air.)
