Front view:
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.
