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.

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.
