Safe Servicing Practices
Avoid personal injury and/or property damage by observing important Safe Servicing Practices.
Following are some limited examples of safe practices:
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to complete the repair in a
safe and satisfactory manner.
2. Always Use The Correct Replacement Parts as indicated in the parts documentation. Substitutions
may defeat compliance with Safety Standards Set For Home Appliances.
3. Before servicing or moving an appliance:
• Remove power cord from the electrical outlet, trip circuit breaker to OFF position, or remove fuse.
• Turn off water supply for steam models.
• Turn off gas supply for gas dryers.
4. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
5. Use ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE. Substitutions may defeat
compliance with Safety Standards Set For Home Appliances.
6. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN, or GREEN with YELLOW
STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current carrying conductors.
It is EXTREMELY important that the service technician reestablish all safety grounds prior to
completion of service. Failure to do so will create a hazard.
7. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure.
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp edges, high temperature
components, and moving parts.
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc. are adequately spaced away from all
metal parts and panels.
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely connected.
• All panels are properly and securely reassembled
• Gas and water supplies are turned ON if shut off prior to service.
This service manual is intended for use by persons having electrical and mechanical training and a
level of knowledge of these subjects generally considered acceptable in the appliance repair trade.
El e c t r o l u x H o m e P r o d u c t s , I n c . c a n n o t b e r e s p o n s i b l e , n o r a s s u m e a n y l i a b i l i t y , f o r i n j u r y o r d a m a g e o f
any kind arising from the use of this manual.
Protect Children
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer.Close supervision of children is necessary when the dryer
is used near children. As children grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.
Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the dryer is unpacked.
Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become
airtight chambers.
Keep laundry products out of children’s reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product
labels.
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the dryer door to prevent accidental
entrapment.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
1-4
Basic Information
TO PREVENT PERSONAL INJURY OR DAMAGE TO THE DRYER, THE ELECTRICAL POWER CORD
OF A GAS DRYER MUST BE PLUGGED INTO A PROPERLY GROUNDED AND POLARIZED 3-PRONG
OUTLET. THE THIRD GROUNDING PRONG MUST NEVER BE REMOVED.
NEVER GROUND THE DRYER TO A GAS PIPE.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD OR AN ADAPTER PLUG.
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE DRYER FROM THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY
SERVICE OR CLEANING. FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR INJURY.
DO NOT USE ANY TYPE SPRAY CLEANSER WHEN CLEANING DRYER INTERIOR. HAZARDOUS
FUMES OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK COULD OCCUR.
TO PREVENT INJURY, DO NOT REACH INTO THE DRYER IF THE DRUM IS MOVING. WAIT UNTIL
THE DRYER HAS STOPPED COMPLETELY BEFORE REACHING INTO THE DRUM.
TO PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE DRYER:
• ALL REPAIRS AND SERVICING MUST BE PERFORMED BY AN AUTHORIZED SERVICER
UNLESS SPECIFICALLY RECOMMENDED IN THIS OWNER’S GUIDE.
USE ONLY AUTHORIZED FACTORY PARTS.
• DO NOT TAMPER WITH CONTROLS.
• DO NOT INSTALL OR STORE THE DRYER WHERE IT WILL BE EXPOSED TO THE
WEATHER.
Prevent Fire
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning
solvents, kerosene, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer. These substances give off
vapors that could ignite or explode.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may
contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
To prevent fire, do not use heat to dry items containing plastic, foam rubber or similarly textured rubberlike materials, or items containing feathers or down. Use Air Fluff (No Heat) only.
Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust
duct should be cleaned approximately every 18 months by qualified service personnel. An excessive
amount of lint buildup in these areas could result in inefficient drying and possible fire.
Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and
damage to fabrics can occur. If your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint screen when finished
using the drying rack.
Keep area around exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or
back of the dryer.
Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at any time.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of
the fabric softener or product.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage
to the rubber or plastic parts of the dryer.

Exhaust System Requirements
Use only 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter (minimum) rigid
or flexible metal duct and approved vent hood
which has a swing-out damper(s) that open when
the dryer is in operation. When the dryer stops,
the dampers automatically close to prevent drafts
and the entrance of insects and rodents. To avoid
restricting the outlet, maintain a minimum of 12
inches (30.5 cm) clearance between the vent hood
and the ground or any other obstruction.
If the present system is made up of plastic duct or
metal foil duct, replace it with a rigid or semi-rigid
metal duct. In Canada and the United States if
metal (foil type) duct is installed, it must be of a
specific type identified by the appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers and in
the United States must also comply with the
Outline for Clothes Dryer Transition Duct, UL
standard 2158A. Also, ensure the present duct is
free of any lint prior to installing dryer duct.
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. (See Figure 2-2 & 2-3)

Installation Information
Install Male Fittings in Correct Direction:
Exhaust Direction
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: (See Figure 2-4)
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 Figure 2-5)
CORRECT
INCORRECT
Figure 2-4.
Exhaust System Requirements
Figure 2-5.
1. Connect an inclined or digital manometer
between the dryer and the point the exhaust
connects to the dryer.
2. Set the dryer timer and temperature to air fluff
(cool down) and start the dryer.
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.
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. Installer MUST anchor this (1) dryer or (2)
dryer mounted on pedestal to the floor with
approved Mobile Home Installation Kit.
Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system
is acceptable, certain extenuating circumstances
could affect the performance of the dryer:
1. Only the rigid metal duct work should be used.
2. Venting vertically through a roof may expose
the exhaust system to down drafts causing an
increase in vent restriction.
3. Running the exhaust system through an
uninsulated area may cause condensation and
faster accumulation of lint.
4. Compression or crimping of the exhaust
system
will cause an increase in vent restriction.
5. 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.

Electric Heater Function
The electric heater assembly consists of three
5500 Watt elements, that are energized as needed
by the electronic control.
Under normal circumstances where the unit is
starting at ambient temperature (below 100°F), all
heating elements should turn on. Above 100°F (in
the exhaust), any number of heating elements may
be on depending on selected cycle, temperature
settings, options and previous state of elements.
Unless there is a high vent restriction or faulty
thermistor, the heater element conditions will be
controlled by the exhaust NTC.

Electrical Tests For Electric and Gas Dryers
Continuity
When measured by an Ohm meter, there should be no more than .1 Ohms resistance between the
terminal block ground and any exposed metal dryer cabinet component including control shafts and
switches when probed through or in any unpainted area.
Check continuity between motor frame and motor support bracket using a continuity light. Test light must
illuminate when probing the motor frame with one end of the test light and the motor bracket with the
other.
If dryer fails continuity with a low voltage tester, check continuity using 120 VAC.
Insulation Dielectric Strength
Disconnect ground link from the neutral of the terminal block on the dryer. With the dryer completely
assembled and with the door closed, apply 1200 VAC or more for one second to the terminal block
terminals or service cord.
Connect one probe to all three terminals and the other probe to the backsheet. There shall be no more
than 5mA of current during the one second test interval. During the 1 second test, no drop in voltage
below 1200 VAC is permissible.
Motor Power
Audit - (power required after 20 seconds with no load, motor CW direction, and no heat) 200 to 280 watts.
Line Test - (power required after 1-5 seconds with no load, motor CW direction, and no heat) 210 to 290
watts.
Low Voltage Start
The dryer motor should start and operate at 100 volts (200 volts for 230 VAC, 50Hz dryers). The power
will be set to not dip below this voltage during any part of the cycle. Increase the voltage to allow for
meter error and line fluctuations. Test the run with a 50 pound clothes load (25 pounds at 100% moisture)
at "Maximum" heat setting.
Motor Protector Trip Time
When the motor is locked, the thermal protector must open to shut off motor within 3 to 10 seconds. This
test also applies to the 50/60 Hz Motor when test is conducted at 230VAC 60 Hz.
NOTE: Tests must be run with a cold (ambient) motor. When tested in the unit, a jumper harness will be
needed to bypass the software alarm for the motor not starting. Without the jumper, the software will stop
the cycle within 3 seconds (before the thermal protector opens) if motor movement is not detected.
Tests must be run at 120VAC (line voltage not to sag below this value when the rotor is locked), unless
specified otherwise.
