Plan installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns.
Four-inch metal exhaust
Metal flexible vent must be fully
extended
and supported
when the
dryer is in its final position. DO NOT
KINK OR CRUSH THE VENT. The metal
flexible vent must be completely
open to allow adequate
exhaust air
to flow.
Allow as much room as possible
when using elbows or making turns.
Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Remove excess flexible vent to avoid
sagging and kinking that may result in
reduced air flow.
Exhaust outlet is located at the
center of the bottom dryer back.
The exhaust vent can be routed up,
down, left, right, behind the dryer or
straight out the back of the dryer.
Kits are available
to convert the
exhaust vent to be routed through
the cabinet right or left side or
through the bottom. See Page 3 for
Exhaust Kit part numbers. See Page
11 for product dimensions and
recessed area requirements.
Maximum length of exhaust system
depends upon the type of vent used,
number of elbows and type of
exhaust hood. The maximum length
for both rigid and flexible vent is
shown in the chart.

A main exhaust vent can be used for
exhausting
a group of dryers. Main
exhaust vent should be sized to
remove 200 CFM of air per dryer.
Large-capacity
lint screens of proper
design may be used in the main
exhaust vent if checked
and
cleaned
frequently. The room where
the dryers are located should have
make-up air equal to or greater than
the CFM of all the dryers in the room.
I
LENGTH OF 4-INCH
MAXIMUM
Four-inch outlet hood is preferred.
However, a 2-l/2-inch
outlet exhaust
hood may be used. A 2-l/2-inch
outlet creates greater back pressure
than other hood types. For
permanent
installation, a stationary
exhaust system is required.
EXHAUST HOOD TYPE
I
MAXIMUM
available
from your Whirlpool parts
distributor.
Service check: The back pressure in
any exhaust system must not exceed
0.6 inches of water column measured
with an inclined manometer
at the
point that the exhaust vent connects
to the dryer.
Exhausting the electric dryer outside
is recommended.
A closet installation
must be exhausted
outside. Recessed
installation that is not exhausted
outside must use Exhaust Deflector,
Part No. 3391278 (electric dryer only),
available
from your dealer.
If dryer is installed in a confined area,
such as a bedroom, bathroom or
closet, it must be exhausted
to the
outside and provision made for
enough air for combustion
and
ventilation.
(Check governing
codes
and ordinances.)
See “Recessed
area and closet installation
instructions” on Page 11.
An exhaust hood should cap the
exhaust vent to prevent exhausted
air
from returning into the dryer. The
outlet of the hood must be at least
12 inches from the ground or
anything else that may be in the path
of the exhaust.
Back-draft
Damper Kits, Part No.
3391910, are available
from your
Whirlpool dealer and should be
installed in each dryer’s exhaust vent
to prevent exhausted
air from
returning into the dryers and to keep
the exhaust in balance
within the
main exhaust vent. Unobstructed
air
openings are required.
Each exh’aust vent should enter the
main vent at an angle pointing in the
direction of the aitilow. Vents entering
from the opposite side should be
staggered
to reduce the exhausted
air from interfering with the other
vents.
The maximum
angle of each vent
entering the main vent should be no
more than 30”.
Keep air openings free of dry
cleaning fluid fumes. Fumes create
acids which, when drawn through the
dryer heating units, can damage
dryers and loads being dried.
Exhaust vent
connection
Determine
which direction you need
to attach the exhaust vent to the
dryer. Next, determine
the length of
the exhaust vent you will need to
connect the dryer to exhaust hood or
main vent.
To connect exhaust vent
straight out the back -
A clean-out
cover should be located
on the main exhaust vent for
periodically
cleaning
the exhaust
system.
An exhaust hood should cap the
outside end of the main vent to
prevent exhausted
air from returning
to the dryers If an exhaust hood
cannot be used, the outside end of
the main vent should have a sweep
elbow directed downward.
If the
main vent travels vertically through
the roof, rather than through the wall,
install 180” sweep elbow on the end
of vent at least 2 feet above the
highest part of the building. The
opening wall or roof shall have a
diameter
l/2 inch larger than the
exhaust vent diameter. The exhaust
vent should be centered
in the
opening.
Attach exhaust vent to dryer vent.
Then connect
exhaust vent to
exhaust hood or main exhaust vent
Use duct tape to seat all joints.
This dryer may be converted
to be
exhausted
out the right or left side or
through the bottom. To convert the
dryer, one of the following kits MUST
be used:
