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" IPS.
When acceptable to the gas supplier and local
codes, 3/8" approved aluminum or copper tubing
may be used for lengths under 20 feet (6.1 m). For
lengths over 20 feet (6.1 m), 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 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" male pipe
thread.) An individual manual shutoff valve must
be installed within 6 feet (1.8 m) of the dryer in
accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1.
Electrical: A 120 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, fused
electrical supply is required on a separate 15- or
20- amp circuit. A time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker is recommended.
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the
outside. 4" (10.2 cm) 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" (30.5 cm) 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.
