C. DRYER ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials and must be located a minimum of
12-inches (30.48 cm) (18-inches [45.72 cm] or more is recommended for ease of installation, maintenance, and
service) above the dryer outer top, except along the front of the dryer, which may be partially closed in if desired.
The clearance between the bulkhead header and the dryer must be a minimum of 4-inches (10.16 cm) and must
not extend more than 4-inches (10.16 cm) to the rear of the front. The bulkhead facing must not be closed in
ALL the way to the top of the dryer. A 1-inch (2.54 cm) clearance is required.
NOTE: Allowances must be made for opening the control door.
Dryers may be positioned sidewall to sidewall. However, a 1/16” (1.5875 mm) minimum allowance must be
made for the opening and closing of the control door and the lint door. It is suggested that the dryer be positioned
about 2 feet (0.61 meters) away from the nearest obstruction for ease of installation, maintenance, and service
(to be measured from the back guard). Refer to the illustration above for details.
NOTE: Air considerations are important for proper and efficient operation.

113184-7
Maytag Co.
11
D. FRESH AIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it, passes this air through the basket (tumbler), and
exhausts it out of the building. Therefore, the room air must be continually replenished from the outdoors. If the
make-up air is inadequate, drying time and drying efficiency will be adversely affected. Ignition problems and
sail switch “fluttering” problems may result, as well as premature motor failure from overheating.
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to assure proper performance of each dryer. An
unrestricted source of air is necessary for each dryer. An airflow of 1,200 cfm (cubic feet per minute) (33.98
cmm [cubic meters per minute]) must be supplied to each dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance
from the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 1-1/2 square feet (0.41 square meters) is required for each
dryer. The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
To compensate for the use of registers or louvers used over the openings, this make-up air must be increased by
approximately thirty-three percent (33%). Make-up air openings should not be located in an area directly near
where exhaust vents exit the building.
It is not necessary to have separate make-up air openings for each dryer. Common make-up air openings are
acceptable. However, they must be set up in such a manner that the make-up air is distributed equally to ALL
the dryers.
EXAMPLE: For a bank of four (4) dryers, two (2) unrestricted openings measuring 2 feet by 1-1/2 feet
(0.61 meters by 0.46 meters) are acceptable.
Allowances must be made for remote or constricting passageways or where dryers are located at excessive
altitudes or predominantly low pressure areas.
IMPORTANT: Make-up air must be provided from a source free of dry cleaning solvent fumes.
Make-up air that is contaminated by dry cleaning solvent fumes will result in
irreparable damage to the motors and other dryer components.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.

E. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
1. General Exhaust Ductwork Information
Exhaust ductwork should be designed and installed by a qualified professional. Improperly sized ductwork
will create excessive back pressure, which results in slow drying, increased use of energy, overheating of
the dryer, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches, burner hi-limits, or basket (tumbler)
hi-limit thermostats. The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.
CAUTION: This dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that exhaust or booster fans not be used in the exhaust ductwork
system.
The ductwork should be laid out in such a way that the ductwork travels as directly as possible to the
outdoors with as few turns as possible. Single or independent dryer venting is recommended.
HORIZONTAL VENTING
When single dryer venting is used, the length of the ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet
must not exceed 15 feet (4.6 meters). The minimum diameter of this ductwork must be at least
10-inches (25.4 cm) (even though the dryer exhaust duct for gas dryers is only 8-inches [20.32 cm]). In the
case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from the last dryer to the outside exhaust outlet
must not exceed 15 feet (4.6 meters). The shape of the ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum
cross-sectional area is provided. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns be avoided; use 30° and/or 45°
angles instead. The radius of the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter of the duct.
Including basket (tumbler)/dryer elbow connections or elbows used for outside protection from the weather,
no more than two (2) elbows should be used in the exhaust duct run. If more than two (2) elbows are
used, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork must be increased. ALL ductwork should be smooth
inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions, which will collect lint. When
adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be connected. ALL ductwork
joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building. Inspection doors should
be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic inspection and cleaning of lint from the
ductwork.
VERTICAL VENTING
When single dryer venting is used, the length of the ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet
must not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters). The minimum diameter of this ductwork must be at least
12-inches (30.48 cm). In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from the last dryer to
the outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters). The shape of the ductwork is not critical
so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns be
avoided; use 30º and/or 45º bends instead. The radius of the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the
diameter of the duct. ALL ductwork should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal
screws or other obstructions, which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should
overlap the duct to which it is to be connected. ALL ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture
and lint from escaping into the building. Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the
exhaust ductwork for periodic inspection and cleaning of lint from the ductwork.
113184-7
Maytag Co.
13
NOTE: As per the National Fuel Gas Code, “Exhaust ducts for type 2 clothes dryers shall be
constructed of sheet metal or other noncombustible material. Such ducts shall be equivalent in
strength and corrosion resistance to ducts made of galvanized sheet steel not less than 26
gauge (0.0195-inches [0.05 mm]) thick.”
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less
than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) of water column (W.C.).
IMPORTANT: Minimum ductwork diameter for horizontal venting is 10-inches (25.4 cm) and for
vertical venting the minimum is 12-inches (30.48 cm).
NOTE: When the exhaust ductwork passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible
materials, the opening must be 2-inches (5.08 cm) larger than the duct (all the way around).
The duct must be centered within this opening.
Outside Ductwork Protection
To protect the outside end of the horizontal ductwork from the weather, a 90° elbow bent downward
should be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the ductwork travels vertically up through the
roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180° turn to point the opening downward. In
either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and the nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.
2. Single Dryer Venting
When possible, it is suggested to provide a separate exhaust duct for each dryer. The exhaust duct should
be laid out in such a way that the ductwork travels as directly as possible to the outdoors with as few turns
as possible. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns in the ducting be avoided; use 30° and/or 45° angles
instead. The shape of the exhaust ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is
provided.
IMPORTANT: Minimum duct size for a dryer that is vented horizontally is 10-inches (25.4 cm) for a
round duct or an equivalent of 80 square inches (516.1 square centimeters). THE
DUCT SIZE MUST NOT BE REDUCED ANYWHERE DOWNSTREAM OF
THE DRYER.
14
Maytag Co.
113184-7
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less
than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) of water column.
IMPORTANT: Minimum duct size for a dryer that is vented vertically is 12-inches (30.48 cm) for a
round duct or an equivalent of 80 square inches (516.1 square centimeters). THE
DUCT SIZE MUST NOT BE REDUCED ANYWHERE DOWNSTREAM OF
THE DRYER.
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the ductwork can only be
increased to an extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum limits noted in
this manual, a professional heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
ALL ductwork should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions,
which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be
connected. ALL ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the
building. Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic
inspection and cleaning of lint from the ductwork.
NOTE: When the exhaust ductwork passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible
materials, the opening must be 2-inches (5.08 cm) larger than the duct (all the way around).
The duct must be centered within this opening.

3. Piping/Connections
ALL components/materials must conform to National Fuel Gas Code Specifications ANSI Z223.1-LATEST
EDITION, or in Canada, CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (Liquid
Propane [L.P.] Gas) or LATEST EDITION (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing), as well as local
codes and ordinances and must be done by a qualified professional. It is important that gas pressure
regulators meet applicable pressure requirements, and that gas meters be rated for the total amount of
ALL the appliance Btu being supplied.
The dryer is provided with a 3/4” N.P.T. inlet pipe connection located at the right side of the base of the
dryer. The minimum pipe size (supply line) to the dryer is 3/4” diameter. For ease in servicing, the gas
supply line of each dryer must have its own shutoff valve.
The size of the main gas supply line (header) will vary depending on the distance this line travels from the
gas meter or, in the case of L.P. gas, the supply tank, other gas-operated appliances on the same line, etc.
Specific information regarding supply line size should be determined by the gas supplier.
NOTE: Undersized gas supply piping can create a low or inconsistent pressure, which will result in
erratic operation of the burner ignition system.
22
Maytag Co.
113184-7
Consistent gas pressure is essential at ALL gas connections. It is recommended that a 3/4-inch (19.050
mm) pipe gas loop be installed in the supply line servicing a bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator
must be installed in the gas supply line (header) if the (natural) gas pressure exceeds 12.0 inches (29.9
mb) of water column (W.C.) pressure.
NOTE: A water column test pressure of 3.5 inches (8.7 mb) for natural gas and 10.5 inches (26.1 mb)
for liquid propane (L.P.) dryers is required at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer for
proper and safe operation.
A 1/8” N.P.T. plugged tap, accessible for a test gauge connection, must be installed in the main gas supply
line immediately upstream of each dryer.
IMPORTANT: Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of natural gas and L.P. gas must be used.
IMPORTANT: Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid
detergent works well).
WARNING: NEVER TEST FOR LEAKS WITH A FLAME!!!
ALL components/materials must conform to National Fuel Gas Code Specifications ANSI Z223.1-LATEST
EDITION, or in Canada, CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas)
or LATEST EDITION (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing), as well as local codes and ordinances
and must be done by a qualified professional. It is important that gas pressure regulators meet applicable
pressure requirements, and that gas meters be rated for the total amount of ALL the appliance Btu being
supplied.
IMPORTANT: The dryer and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
NOTE: The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual
shutoff valve during any pressure test of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less
than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
H. PREPARATION FOR OPERATION/START-UP
The following items should be checked before attempting to operate the dryer:
1. Read ALL “CAUTION,” “WARNING,” and “DIRECTION” labels attached to the dryer.
2. Check incoming supply voltage to be sure that it is the same as indicated on the dryer data label.
3. GAS MODELS – check to assure that the dryer is connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the
dryer data label.
4. GAS MODELS – the sail switch damper assembly was installed and adjusted at the factory prior to
shipping. However, each sail switch adjustment must be checked to assure that this important safety
control is functioning.
113184-7
Maytag Co.
23
5. GAS MODELS – be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.
6. Be sure ALL back panels (guards) and electric box covers have been replaced.
7. Check ALL service doors to assure that they are closed and secured in place.
8. Be sure the lint drawer is securely in place.
9. Rotate the basket (tumbler/drum) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
10. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.
11. Check basket (tumbler) bearing setscrews to ensure they are ALL tight.
I. PREOPERATIONAL TEST
ALL dryers are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving the factory. However, a preoperational test
should be performed before the dryer is publicly used. It is possible that adjustments have changed in transit or
due to marginal location (installation) conditions.
1. Turn on electric power to the dryer.
a. Open ALL shutoff valves.
2. Refer to the Operating Instructions for starting your particular model dryer.
a. Gas Dryers
1) When a gas dryer is first started (during initial start-up), the burner has a tendency not to ignite on
the first ignition attempt. This is because the gas supply piping is filled with air, so it may take a few
minutes for the air to be purged from the lines.
NOTE: During the purging period, check to be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are open.
NOTE: Gas dryers are equipped with a Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) system, which has internal
diagnostics. If ignition is not established within three (3) times, the heat circuit in the DSI
module will “LOCK OUT” until it is manually reset. To reset the DSI system, open and close
the main door and restart the dryer.
2) A gas pressure test should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer to assure that the
water column (W.C.) pressure is correct and consistent.
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at the gas valve pressure tap):
Natural Gas ................................... 3.5 Inches (8.7 mb) Water Column.
Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas ............. 10.5 Inches (26.1 mb) Water Column.
24
Maytag Co.
113184-7
IMPORTANT: There is no regulator provided in a liquid propane (L.P.) dryer. The water column
pressure must be regulated at the source (L.P. tank), or an external regulator must be
added to each dryer.
3. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety related circuits:
a. Door Switch(es)
b. Hi-Limit Thermostats
c. Sail Switch
NOTE: To check for proper sail switch operation, open the main door and while holding main door
switch plunger in, start dryer. Dryer should start but heat circuit should not be activated (on).
If the heat system is activated, the sail switch is improperly adjusted and must be adjusted by
bending the actuator arm of the sail switch toward the burner box. If the actuator arm is bent
too far toward the burner box of the dryer, the dryer may not have heat when needed. After
any adjustment to the sail switch, the above procedure must be repeated to verify proper
operation of the sail switch.
4. The dryer should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure that no further adjustments are
necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.
BASKET (TUMBLER) COATING
The basket (tumbler) is treated with a protective coating. We suggest dampening old garments or cloth material
with a solution of water and nonflammable mild detergent and tumbling them in the basket (tumbler) to remove
this coating.
5. Make a complete operational check of ALL operating controls.
For microprocessor controller (computer) model check programs/selections – Each microprocessor controller
(computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the most commonly used parameter (program)
selections. If computer program changes are required, refer to the computer programming manual, which
was shipped with the dryer.
6. Check to ensure that ALL setscrews (i.e., basket [tumbler] drive, idler, etc.) are tight.

SECTION IV
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
A. CLEANING
A program and/or schedule should be established for periodic inspection, cleaning, and removal of lint from
various areas of the dryer, as well as throughout the ductwork system. The frequency of cleaning can best be
determined from experience at each location. Maximum operating efficiency is dependent upon proper air
circulation. The accumulation of lint can restrict this airflow. If the guidelines in this section are met, a Maytag
dryer will provide many years of efficient, trouble free, and most importantly, safe operation.
WARNING: LINT FROM MOST FABRICS IS HIGHLY COMBUSTIBLE. THE
ACCUMULATION OF LINT CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: KEEP DRYER AREA CLEAR AND FREE FROM COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE, AND OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND
LIQUIDS.
NOTE: Suggested time intervals shown are for average usage, which is considered six (6) to eight (8)
operational (running) hours per day.
IMPORTANT: Dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint buildup.
SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
EVERY THIRD OR FOURTH LOAD
Clean the lint screen every third or fourth load. A clogged lint screen will cause poor dryer performance. The
lint screen is located behind the lint door in the base of the dryer. Open the lint door, brush the lint off of the lint
screen, and remove the lint. Inspect the lint screen and replace if torn.
NOTE: The frequency of cleaning the lint screens can best be determined from experience at each
location.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from the lint chamber, thermostat, and microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor
bracket) area.
WARNING: TO AVOID HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.
113184-7
Maytag Co.
27
90 DAYS
1. Remove lint from around basket (tumbler), drive motors, and surrounding areas.
2. Remove lint from gas valve burner area with a dusting brush or vacuum cleaner attachment.
3. Clean any lint accumulation in and around both the blower and drive motor casing openings.
EVERY 6 MONTHS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system and from dryer’s internal
exhaust ducting.
NOTE: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR.
CHECK CUSTOMER FURNISHED BACK DRAFT DAMPERS IN THE EXHAUST
DUCTWORK. INSPECT AND REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION, WHICH
CAN CAUSE THE DAMPER TO BIND OR STICK.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shutdown of
heat circuit safety switches or thermostats.
NOTE: When cleaning the dryer cabinets, avoid using harsh abrasives. A product intended for the
cleaning of appliances is recommended.
B. ADJUSTMENTS
7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION AND EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, (bearing setscrews), grounding connections, and nonpermanent gas connections
(unions, shutoff valves, and orifices). Motor and drive belts should be examined. Cracked or seriously frayed
belts should be replaced. Tighten loose V-belts when necessary. Complete operational check of controls and
valves. Complete operational check of ALL safety devices (door switches, lint drawer switch, sail switch,
burner, and hi-limit thermostats).
C. LUBRICATION
The motor bearings, idler bearings...and under normal/most conditions the basket (tumbler) bearings are permanently
lubricated. It is physically possible to relubricate the basket (tumbler) bearings if you choose to do so even
though this practice is not necessary. Use Shell Alvania #2 or its equivalent. The basket (tumbler) bearings used
in the dryer DO NOT have a grease fitting. Provisions are made in the bearing housing for the addition of a
grease fitting, which can be obtained elsewhere, or from your Maytag dealer by ordering kit Part No. 882159,
which includes two (2) fittings.

SECTION VI
PROCEDURE FOR FUNCTIONAL CHECK
OF REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS
1. Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Board
a. Upon completing installation of the replacement microprocessor controller (computer) board, reestablish
power to the dryer.
b. Start the drying cycle by pressing any temperature selection keys (HI, MED, or LO).
c. Verify that the applicable indicator lights on the microprocessor controller (computer) board are lit.
(Refer to the illustration below.)
30
Maytag Co.
113184-7
2. For Models with Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Module (Type I)
Theory of Operation:
Start the drying cycle. When the gas burner ignites within the
chosen trial for ignition time (6-seconds), the flame sensor detects
gas burner flame and signals the DSI module to keep the gas
valve open as long as there is a call for heat. The DSI module
will “LOCKOUT” if the gas burner flame is not sensed at the
end of the trial for ignition period. The trial for ignition period will
be repeated for a total of three (3) retries/trials (the initial try and
two [2] more retries/trials). If the flame is not sensed at the end
of the third retry/trial (inter-purge period of 30-seconds), the DSI
module will “LOCKOUT” (light emitting diode [L.E.D.] diagnostic
indicator flashes).
A steady L.E.D. indicator indicates normal operation.
No L.E.D. indicator indicates a power or an internal failure has occurred.
3. For Models with DSI Module (Type II)
Theory of Operation:
Start the drying cycle. When the gas burner ignites within the
chosen trial for ignition time (8-seconds), the flame sensor detects
gas burner flame and signals the DSI module to keep the gas
valve open as long as there is a call for heat. The DSI module
will “LOCKOUT” if the gas burner flame is not sensed at the
end of the trial for ignition period. The trial for ignition period will
be repeated for a total of three (3) retries/trials (the initial try and
two [2] more retries/trials). If the flame is not sensed at the end
of the third retry/trial (inter-purge period of 30-seconds), the DSI
module will “LOCKOUT” (a red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator will
flash).
An unlit red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates normal operation.
A lit green L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates dryer controller is calling for heat and that ALL interlocks
have been satisfied.
