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
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.

Exhaust system requirements, continued
WARNING
WARNING
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
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 duct tape. All male duct pipe
fittings MUST be installed downstream with the
flow of air.
Number of 90° turns
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.
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.

WARNING
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.
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.
• 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.
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.
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.
Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system
is acceptable, certain extenuating circumstances
could affect the performance of the dryer:
• Only the rigid metal duct work should be used.
• Venting vertically through a roof may expose
the exhaust system to down drafts causing an
increase in vent restriction.
• Running the exhaust system through an
uninsulated area may cause condensation and
faster accumulation of lint.
See also CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS on the
next page.
NOTE
Use of 90° quick-turn elbow required to meet
minimum installation depth.
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
