ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
It is your responsibility:
■■ To contact a qualified electrical installer.
■■ To be sure that the electrical connection is adequate and in
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70
- latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
4-wire
receptacle
(14-30R)
If your outlet looks like this:
The National Electrical Code requires a 4-wire power supply
connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits involved
in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park,
Quincy, MA 02269.
■■ To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240
volt, 60 Hz, AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208
volt electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate)
on a separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line.
Connect to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in
the neutral or grounding circuit.
■■ Do not use an extension cord.
■■ If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
■■ This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground conductor
is permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical
supply connection, the neutral ground conductor must be
removed from the external ground connector (green screw),
and secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire)
of the terminal block. When the neutral ground conductor
is secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire)
of the terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from
the neutral conductor.
■■ If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see “Optional 3-wire
connection” section.
■■ A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations,
(2) mobile homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas
where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductors.
Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord with
ring or spade terminals and UL listed strain
relief. The 4-wire power supply cord, at least
4 ft. (1.22 m) long, must have 4 10-gauge solid
copper wires and match a 4-wire receptacle of
NEMA Type 14-30 R. The ground wire (ground
conductor) may be either green or bare. The
neutral conductor must be identified by a
white cover.
3-wire
receptacle
(10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with
ring or spade terminals and UL listed strain
relief. The 3-wire power supply cord, at least
4 ft. (1.22 m) long, must have 3 10-gauge solid
copper wires and match a 3-wire receptacle of
NEMA Type 10-30R.
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
■■ Flexible armored cable or nonmetallic sheathed copper cable
(with ground wire), covered with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
■■ 10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum) at least
5 ft. (1.52 m) long.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
� For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with
the dryer: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.

■■ Use as few 90° turns as possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
■■ Use following Vent System Chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified
in Vent System Chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
■■ Shorten life of dryer.
■■ Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.
The Vent System Chart provides venting requirements that
will help achieve best drying performance.
Vent System Chart
Vent must fit over the exhaust hood. Secure vent to exhaust
hood with 4" (102 mm) clamp. Run vent to dryer location using
straightest path possible. Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps to seal
all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws, or other fastening
devices that extend into interior of vent to secure vent,
because they can catch lint.

TROUBLESHOOTING
DRYER OPERATION
Select a Timed Dry heated cycle, and restart the dryer.
Dryer will not run
If the message persists, have your entire home venting run
cleaned.
■■ Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
There may be two household fuses or circuit breakers
for the dryer. Check that both fuses are intact and tight,
or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace
the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem
continues, call an electrician.
■■ Is the correct power supply available?
Electric dryers require a 240-volt power supply. Check
with a qualified electrician.
■■ Was a regular fuse used?
■■ “E” Variable (E1, E2, E3) service codes:
Call for service.
