to reduce the risk of fire. Be sure to
observe local building codes.
~ Do not install a clothes dryer with
flexible plastic venting materials. If
flexible metal (foil type) duct is
installed, it must be of a specific type
identified by the manufacturer as
suitable for use with clothes dryers.
Flexible venting materials are known to
collapse, be easily crushed, and trap
lint. These conditions will obstruct
clothes dryer airflow and increase the
risk of fire.
~ Use flexible or rigid metal pipe for
venting. Non-metallic flexible hose
should not be used, it is a potential fire
hazard.
~ The appliance shall not be
exhausted into a chimney, a wall, a
ceiling, an attic, a crawl space, or a

The exhaust connection can be left at
the rear of the dryer (factory standard)
or moved to the left or right side of the
dryer.
Changing the position of the exhaust
connection
The dryer must be level to ensure safe
and proper operation. Minor
discrepancies do not however, have an
adverse effect on operation.
^ To remove the exhaust connection
cover on the left or right side of the
dryer turn it counterclockwise and
take it out.
^ Firmly press the cover into the rear
opening.
The machine can be leveled by turning
the legs clockwise or counterclockwise
as necessary.
29
Installation
Installation tips
An airflow gap of 3/8" (10 mm) must
be provided between the machine
and the floor. This airflow gap must
not be blocked by a toe-kick or thick
piled carpets.
Sufficient venting of the installation
site, e.g. by opening a window or
door, is essential for the dryer's
operation. Otherwise drying times
and energy consumption may
increase.
Do not install the dryer next to a
refrigerator. The heat emanating
from the dryer can affect the
thermostat of the refrigerator,
causing it to run continuously.
30
Room ventilation
The room air, which is taken in when
the dryer is in operation, is blown out
via the exhaust vent. It is important,
particularly if the room is small, to
ensure adequate ventilation and air
supply. Opening a window, for
example, will allow more air to enter the
room. Otherwise drying times and
energy consumption may increase.

How to calculate the effective
duct length
The overall duct length will determine
the duct diameter (see the "Additional
duct lengths" table). In Canada the
exhaust duct must be 4" (102 mm) in
diameter.
^ Measure the actual duct length
needed to go from the dryer’s
exhaust connection to the vent outlet:
1. Establish the number of elbows or
bends necessary, noting the type of
bend, angle and radius involved
(see the "Additional duct lengths"
table).
2. Add the additional duct length (as
derived by using the values
specified in the "Additional duct
lengths" table) and the actual duct
length to get the effective length.
Note:
Maximum effective duct lengths:
4" (100 mm) diameter
66 ft (20 m)
5" (125 mm) diameter
132 ft (40 m)
6" (150 mm) diameter
328 ft (100 m)
If using flexible metal duct the total
length must not exceed 7' 10" (2.4 m).
See the "Additional duct lengths"
table for more information on
maximum duct lengths and number
of bends.
Using the ring adapter up to an
effective duct length of 33 ft (10 m) and
a standard duct diameter of 4"
(100 mm) will provide optimal drying
times and energy consumption.
Do not use the ring adapter if the
effective duct length is more than 33 ft
(10 m).
Effective duct lengths over 66 ft (20 m)
require a larger duct diameter.
Longer ducts may lead to slight
decreases in dryer efficiency if the
necessary duct diameter is not
employed.
33
Installation
Tips about the duct work
– Check with your local building code
to determine the maximum allowable
duct length.
– Only use rigid or flexible metal duct
for exhausting. Non-metallic flexible
hose should not be used, it is a
potential fire hazard.
– In the United Stated foil-type flexible
ducts should only be used if
identified for use by the manufacturer
as compliant with the Outline for
Clothes Dryer Transition Duct,
Subject ANSI/UL 2158A.
In Canada, only flexible metal
(foil-type) ducts specifically identified
for use by the manufacturer should
be used.
– For best drying results avoid extra
long ducting with too many bends,
angles or tight corners.
– Do not assemble the duct with
screws or other fastening devices
that extend into the duct and catch
lint.
34
– The shorter the exhaust duct work,
the more efficient the dryer will be.
Expelled air is slowed down in the
ducts due to friction against the inner
walls. The shorter and smoother the
inner walls are, the less friction will
be created.
– An elbow or bend creates more
friction than a straight duct. An
additional duct length factor must be
added for each elbow or bend (see
the "Additional duct lengths" table).
This factor expresses the resistance
of the bend in terms of a straight
length of duct.
The additional length factor is then
added to the existing duct to give the
effective length.
A larger duct diameter helps reduce
friction. Therefore the duct diameter
and length should be increased
simultaneously.
