Correct Incorrect Correct Incorrect WARNING FIRE HAZARD Failure to follow these instructions can create excessive drying times and fire hazards. The following are specific requirements for proper and safe operation of your dryer. WARNING FIRE HAZARD Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic or metal foil venting materials. Flexible venting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed and trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire. If your present system is made up of plastic duct or metal foil duct, replace it with a rigid or semirigid metal duct. Also, ensure the present duct is free of any lint prior to installing dryer duct. 5 6 Installation Requirements Exhaust system requirements, continued WARNING The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding area. WARNING FIRE HAZARD • Do not allow combustible materials (for example: clothing, draperies/curtains, paper) to come in contact with exhaust system. The dryer MUST NOT be exhausted into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space of a building which can accumulate lint, resulting in a fire hazard. • Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent system, or use any screws, rivets or other fasteners that extend into the duct to assemble the exhaust system. Lint can become caught in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging the duct work and creating a fire hazard as well as increasing drying times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the duct outdoors, and seal all joints with metal foil tape. All male duct pipe fittings MUST be installed downstream with the flow of air. WARNING FIRE HAZARD Exceeding the length of duct pipe or number of elbows allowed in the “MAXIMUM LENGTH” charts can cause an accumulation of lint in the exhaust system. Plugging the system could create a fire hazard, as well as increase drying times. Number of 90° turns FIRE HAZARD A clothes dryer must be exhausted outdoors. Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, an attic, a crawl space or any concealed space of a building. A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. If the dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint will be expelled into the laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area of the home can create a health and fire hazard. MAXIMUM LENGTH of 4” (102mm) Rigid Metal Duct VENT HOOD TYPE (Preferred) 4” (10.2cm) louvered 2.5” (6.35cm) 0 125 ft. (38.10m) 110 ft. (33.53m) 1 115 ft. (35.05m) 100 ft. (30.48m) 2 105 ft.

(21.34m) WARNING FIRE HAZARD • Do not install flexible plastic or flexible foil venting material. • If installing semi-rigid venting, do not exceed 8 ft. (2.4 m) duct length. EXHAUST DIRECTION Directional exhausting can be accomplished by installing a quick-turn 90° dryer vent elbow directly to exhaust outlet of dryer. Dryer vent elbows are available through your local parts distributor or hardware store. See also CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS on the next page. NOTE Use of 90° quickturn elbow required to meet minimum installation depth. Installation Requirements Exhaust system requirements, continued WARNING Install male fittings in correct direction: EXPLOSION HAZARD Do not install the dryer where gasoline or other flammables are kept or stored. If the dryer is installed in a garage, it must be a minimum of 18 inches (45.7 cm) above the floor. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, fire or burns. CORRECT INCORRECT In installations where the exhaust system is not described in the charts, the following method must be used to determine if the exhaust system is acceptable: Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system is acceptable, certain extenuating circumstances could affect the performance of the dryer: 1. Connect an inclined or digital manometer between the dryer and the point the exhaust connects to the dryer. • Venting vertically through a roof may expose the exhaust system to down drafts causing an increase in vent restriction. 2. Set the dryer timer and temperature to air fluff (cool down) and start the dryer. • Running the exhaust system through an uninsulated area may cause condensation and faster accumulation of lint. 3. Read the measurement on the manometer. 4. The system back pressure MUST NOT be higher than 1.0 inch of water column. If the system back pressure is less than 1.0 inch of water column, the system is acceptable. If the manometer reading is higher than 1.0 inch of water column, the system is too restrictive and the installation is unacceptable. • Only the rigid metal duct work should be used. • Compression or crimping of the exhaust system will cause an increase in vent restriction. • The exhaust system should be inspected and cleaned a minimum of every 18 months with normal usage. The more the dryer is used, the more often you should check the exhaust system and vent hood for proper operation. Manufactured or mobile home installation 1. Installation MUST conform to current Manufactured Home Construction & Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 32-80 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD Part 280) or Standard CAN/CSAZ240 MH. 2. Dryer MUST be exhausted outside (outdoors, not beneath the mobile home) using metal ducting that will not support combustion. Metal ducting must be 4 inches (10.16 cm) in diameter with no obstructions. Rigid metal duct is preferred. 3. If dryer is exhausted through the floor and area beneath the mobile home is enclosed, the exhaust system MUST terminate outside the enclosure with the termination securely fastened to the mobile home structure. 4. Refer to previous sections in this guide for other important exhaust venting system requirements. 5. When installing a gas dryer into a mobile home, a provision must be made for outside make up air. This provision is to be not less than twice the area of the dryer exhaust outlet. 6.
