LOCATION
This appliance is suitable for mobile
home installations. The installation of
the dryer must conform to the
Manufactured Home Construction and
Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280
(formerly the Federal Standard for
Mobile Home Construction and Safety,
Title 24, HUD,Part 280).
For mobile home use, this appliance
MUST be fastened to the floor and
MUST be exhausted to the outside.
Order Mobile Home Installation Kit
No. 346765 from your Whirlpool dealer.
Kit includes the necessary fastening
hardware and detailed installation
instructions.
Exhaust system hardware
is also available through your
Whirlpool dealer.
This installation must conform with
American National Standard, National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI 2223.1 - latest
edition, and all local codes and
ordinances.
Input ratings shown on the rating
plate (serial tag) are for elevations up
to 2,000 feet. For elevations above
2,000 feet, ratings should be reduced
at a rate of 4% for each 1,000 feet
above sea level.
Gas supply
requirements
Fire Hazard
. This dryer must be connected to
a regulated gas supply. Failure
to do so could cause highpressure gas release, resulting in
a fire or explosion.
l
Have the L.P. gas checked by a
qualified person before installing
the dryer. The L.P. gas supply
must not exceed a pressure of
13” water column.
l New flexible
tubing should be
used. Reusing old flexible
tubing might result in possible
leaks or fire hazard.
Failure to follow these instructions
may result in fire or explosion.
OBSERVEALL GOVERNING CODES
AND ORDINANCES
First make certain that this
dryer is equipped with
n
the correct burner for
the particular type of gas in the home.
Burner information will be found on
the rating plate in door well of the
appliance.
If this information does not
agree with the type of gas available,
see your dealer
A
B.
This dryer is equipped for use with
NATURAL GAS. It is certified by A.G.A. for
manufactured,
mixed and L-F?gases with
appropriate
conversion. No attempt shall
be made to convert the appliance from
the gas specified on the rating plate for
use with a different gas without consulting
the serving gas supplier. Conversion
must be done by a qualified service
technician. Gas conversion kit part
numbers are listed on the gas valve
burner base.
c.
Size: Must be large enough to fully
open dryer door. For recessed or closet
installation spacing see back cover
Support: The floor must be able to
support the appliance
weight of 175
pounds.
Level floor: Maximum floor slope
under dryer - 1 inch.
Protection from the weather: Proper
operation of dryer cycles requires
temperatures above 45” F, or the dryer
may not shut off when automatic cycles
are used.
PANEL A
Provide a gas supply line to
the dryer location. When
rigid pipe is used it should be ‘/2 inch IPS.
When acceptable
to the gas supplier,
3/einch approved tubing may be used
for lengths under 20 feet. For lengths
over 20 feet, larger tubing should be
used. Pipe joint compounds resistant to
the action of LP gas must be used.
The supply line sho?;jd be equipped
with a shut-off valve. This valve should
be located in the same room as the
dryer and should be in a location that
allows ease of opening and closing.
Do not block access to shut-off valve.
If the dryer is installed in a
confined area such as a
n 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.] Also

The dryer and its individual shut -off
valve must be disconnected
from the
gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test
pressures in excess of 1/2psig (3.45 kPa).
The dryer must be isolated from the
gas supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shut-off valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply
piping system at test pressures equal
to or less than 1/2psig (3.45 kPa).

Electrical Shock Hazard
l Electrical
ground is required on
this appliance.
l Improper
connection of the
equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of
electrical shock.
l Check
with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do Not
modify the power supply
cord plug. lf it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified
electrician.
l
Do Not use an extension cord
wit this appliance. Such use
may result in a fire, electrical
shock or other personal injury.
. Do Not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit. A
fuse in the neutral or grounding
circuit could result in electrical
shock.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in electrical shock or
other personal injury.
A 120 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15 or 20
Ampere fused electrical supply is
required. Time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker is recommended.
It is
recommended
that a separate
circuit serving only this appliance
be provided.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING
METHOD
Electrical ground is required on this
appliance.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,
REMOVE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD
GROUNDING PRONG.
For your personal safety, this
appliance
must be grounded.
This
appliance
is equipped
with a power
supply cord having a 3-prong
grounding
plug.
To minimize possible
shock hazard, the
cord must be
plugged into a
mating 3-prong
grounding-type
wall receptacle,

edition, and all local codes
and ordinances.
If a mating wall
receptacle
is not available,
it is the
personal responsibility and obligation
of the customer to have a properly
grounded 3-prong wall receptacle
installed by a qualified electrician.
For added personal safety, using the
clamp and green-colored
copper wire
furnished, connect this separate
grounding wire (#I8 minimum] from the
external grounding connector on the
back of the appliance to a grounded
cold water pipe?
TEMPORARYGROUNDING METHOD
DO NOT, UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES, REMOVE THE
POWER SUPPLY CORD GROUNDING
PRONG.
THIS, HOWEVER,IS NOT
RECOMMENDED.
If changing and properly grounding
the wall receptacle is impossible and
where local codes permit (consult your
electrical inspector), a temporary
adapter may be plugged into the
existing 2-prong wall receptacle to
mate with the 3-prong power supply
cord.
PANEL B
Use Duct Tape to seal all joints.
If this is done, you must connect a
separate copper grounding wire (No.
18 minimum] to a grounded cold water
pipe’ by means of a clamp and then
to the external ground connector screw.
If the dryer is installed in a confined
area such as a bedroom, bathroom
Do not ground to a gas supply pipe
or hot water pipe. Do not connect to

systems longer than specifted
will:
-Accumulate lint.
Shorten the life of the dryer.
-Reduce performance, resulting
in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.

Exhaust the dryer outside to
prevent exposure to substances
in the gas fuels and combustion
which may be harmful to your
health.
The moisture and lint indoors
may cause:
- FIREHAZARD from lint
collected in dryer;
- Moisture damage to
woodwork, furniture, paint,
wallpaper, carpet, etc.
- House cleaning problems and
possible health problems.
Failure to follow these instructions
could result in fire damage or
personal injury.

returning into 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.
A 2% inch outlet Exhaust Hood should

outlet creates greater back pressure
than other hood types.]
Exhaust Hoods with magnetic latches
should not be used.

Metal flexible duct may be used. It
should be fully extended
and
supported when the dryer is in its final
position. DO NOT KINK OR CRUSH THE
DUCT. The metal flexible duct must
be completely
open to allow
adequate
exhaust air to flow.
For Exhaust Systems not covered by the
exhaust length chart, check with your
Roper dealer or service center for a dryer
manual Part No. 603197. The back
pressure in any exhaust system used must
not exceed 0.6 inches of water column
measured with an inclined manometer at
the point that the exhaust duct connects
to the dryer.
For Mobile Home installation, the dryer
must have an outside exhaust. If you
exhaust the dryer through the
floor and the area under your
mobile home is enclosed, the
exhaust system must terminate
outside the enclosed area.
Extension beyond the
enclosure will prevent lint
and moisture build-up under
mobile home.
