Gas supply: Dryer is equipped for use with
NATURAL gas. Dryer can be converted to L.P. gas.
When rigid pipe is used it should be 1/2 inch IPS.
When acceptable to the gas supplier and local
codes, 3/8-inch 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 L.P. gas must
be used. If local codes permit, it is recommended
that new flexible metal tubing, design-certified by
AGA or CSA, be used for connecting the appliance
to the rigid gas supply line. (The gas pipe which
extends through the lower rear of the appliance
has 3/8-inch male pipe thread.) An individual
manual shutoff valve must be installed within 6
feet of the dryer in accordance with the National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
Electrical: A four-wire or three-wire, single
phase, 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, electrical supply
is required on a separate 15 or 20 amp circuit,
fused on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse
or circuit breaker is recommended.
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the
outside. Four-inch diameter vent is required. Rigid
or flexible metal exhaust vent must be used. Do
Not use plastic or metal foil vent. Exhaust outlet
hood must be at least 12 inches from the ground
or any object that may be in the path of the
exhaust.

1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most direct path outdoors. Plan
the installation to use the fewest number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or
making turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Avoid 90° turns.
2. Determine vent length.
The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon:
• The type of vent (rigid metal or flexible metal).
• The number of elbows used.
• Type of hood.
See the exhaust vent length chart that matches your hood type for the maximum vent
lengths you can use.
3. Determine the number of elbows you will need.
IMPORTANT: Do not use vent runs longer than specified in the Vent Length Chart.
In the column listing the type of metal vent you are using (rigid metal or flexible metal),
find the maximum length of metal vent on the same line as the number of elbows.
