CONNECTING INLET HOSES

CONNECTING INLET HOSES

(on some models)

To produce steam, the dryer must connect to the cold water supply. Since the washer must also connect to the cold water, a “Y” connector is inserted to allow both inlet hoses to make that connection at the same time.

NOTE: Use the new inlet hoses provided; never use old hoses.

1. Turn the cold water faucet off. Remove the washer inlet hose from the washer fill valve connector (cold).

2. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and attach one female coupling of the short hose onto the washer fill valve connector. Tighten by hand until firmly seated.

3. Attach one male end of the “Y” connector to the other female coupling of the short hose. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place. Tighten by hand until firmly seated.

CONNECTING INLET HOSES

(on some models) (cont.)

7. Using pliers, tighten all the couplings with an additional two–thirds turn.

NOTE: Do not overtighten. Damage to the couplings may result.

4. Insert the filter screen in the coupling of the

washer’s inlet hose. If a rubber flat washer is already in place remove it before installing the filter screen. Attach this coupling to one male end of the ‘’Y’’ connector. Tighten by hand until firmly seated.

5. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and attach the dryer’s long inlet hose to one male end of the ‘’Y’’ connector. Tighten by hand until firmly seated.

6. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and attach the other end of the dryer’s long inlet hose to the fill valve connector at the bottom of the dryer back panel. Tighten by hand until firmly seated.

8. Turn the water faucet on.

9. Check for leaks around the ‘’Y’’ connector, faucet and hose couplings.

WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

Hot and cold water faucets MUST be installed within 42 in. (107 cm) of your washer’s water inlet. The faucets MUST be 3/4 in. (1.9 cm) garden hose-type so inlet hoses can be connected. Water pressure MUST be between 10 and 120 pounds per square inch. Your water department can advise you of your water pressure.

NOTE: A water softener is recommended to reduce buildup of scale inside the steam generator if the home water supply is very hard.

CONNECTING THE DRYER TO HOUSE

VENT

RIGID METAL TRANSITION DUCT

• For best drying performance, a rigid metal transition duct is recommended.

• Rigid metal transition ducts reduce the risk of crushing and kinking.

UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL CLOTHES DRYER

TRANSITION DUCT

• If rigid metal cannot be used, then UL-LISTED flexible metal clothes dryer transition duct (GE parts –

PM08X10085, WX08X10085 or WX08X10077) can be used.

• Never install transition duct in walls, ceilings, floors or other enclosed spaces.

• Total length of transition duct should not exceed

8’ (2.4 m).

• For many applications, installing elbows at both the dryer and the wall is highly recommended (see illustrations at right). Elbows allow the dryer to sit close to the wall without kinking and/or crushing the transition duct, maximizing drying performance.

• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.

UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL (FOIL-TYPE) TRANSITION

DUCT

• In special installations, it may be necessary to connect the dryer to the home exhaust vent using flexible metal

(foil-type) transition duct. UL–LISTED universal flexible dryer transition duct (GE parts – PM8X73 or WX8X73) may be used ONLY in installations where rigid metal or flexible metal transition ducting cannot be used AND where a 4” diameter can be maintained throughout the entire length of the transition duct.

• In Canada and the United States, only transition ducts that comply with “UL 2158A STANDARD FOR CLOTHES DRYER

TRANSITION DUCT” shall be used .

• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.

• For best drying performance:

1. Slide one end of the duct over the clothes dryer outlet pipe.

2. Secure the duct with a clamp.

3. With the dryer in its permanent position, extend the duct to its full length. Allow 2” of duct to overlap the exhaust pipe. Cut off and remove excess duct. Keep the duct as straight as possible for maximum airflow.

4. Secure the duct to the exhaust pipe with the other clamp.

Installation Instructions

EXHAUSTING THE DRYER (cont.)

DO cut duct as short as possible and install straight into wall.

DO use elbows when turns are necessary.

Elbows

DO NOT bend or collapse ducting. Use elbows if turns are necessary.

DO NOT use excessive exhaust length. Cut duct as short as possible.

EXHAUST LENGTH

Using exhaust longer than specified length will:

• Increase the drying times and the energy cost.

• Reduce the dryer life.

• Accumulate lint, creating a potential fire hazard.

The correct exhaust installation is YOUR

RESPONSIBILITY.

Problems due to incorrect installation are

not covered by the warranty.The MAXIMUM

ALLOWABLE length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct, number of turns, the type of exhaust hood (wall cap) and all conditions noted on the chart.

Internal elbows added for side or bottom vent conversions must be included in the total elbow count.

Any elbow greater than 45° should be treated as a 90° elbow.

Two 45° elbows will be treated like one 90° elbow.

For every additional 90° elbow, reduce the allowable vent system length by 10 feet.

When calculating the total vent system length, you must add all the straight portions and elbows of the system (including the transition duct).

Installation Instructions

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECKLIST

HOOD OR WALL CAP

• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.

• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust airflow and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.

• Wall caps must be installed at least 12” above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

SEPARATION OF TURNS

• For best performance, separate all turns by at least

4 ft. of straight duct, including distance between last turn and dampened wall cap.

SEALING OF JOINTS

• All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end of each section of duct must point away from the dryer.

• Duct joints should be made air- and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape or aluminum tape.

• Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners that extend into the duct. These fasteners can accumulate lint, creating a potential fire hazard.

• Horizontal runs should slope down towards the outdoors 1/4” per foot.

• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system, especially at turns and joints.

Exhaust system shall be inspected and cleaned at least once a year.

INSULATION

• Ductwork that runs through an unheated area or is near air conditioning should be insulated to reduce condensation and lint buildup.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

• Remove and discard existing plastic or metal foil duct and replace with UL-listed duct.

• Remove any lint from the wall exhaust opening.
