DRYER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING."
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING."
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the dryer, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
[]
Read all instructions
[]
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to
a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
before using the dryer.
[]
Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned in,
washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, drycleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive

REQUIREMENTS
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.
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. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. 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.
[]
[]
If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection" section.
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire 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 wire must be removed
from the external ground connector screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of
the terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the
terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral
conductor.
[]
A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
dryer 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.
if using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with
clothes dryers. The kit should contain:

responsibility:
[]
[]
if your outlet looks like this:
A UL listed 30-amp power supply cord, rated 120/240 volt
minimum. The cord should be type SRD or SRDT and be
at least 4 ft. (1.22 m) long. The wires that connect to the
dryer must end in ring terminals or spade terminals with
upturned ends.
A UL listed strain relief.
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.
If your outlet looks like this:
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.

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 uses a cord having an equipment-grounding
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.
[] For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
the dryer.
WARNING"
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding 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 on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
