IMPORTANT INFORMATION
A. RECEIVING AND HANDLING
The dryer is shipped in a protective stretch wrap cover with protective cardboard corners and top cover (or
optional box) as a means of preventing damage in transit. Upon delivery, the dryer and/or packaging, and
wooden skid should be visually inspected for shipping damage. If any damage whatsoever is noticed, inspect
further before delivering carrier leaves.
Dryers Damaged in Shipment:
1. ALL dryers should be inspected upon receipt and before they are signed for.
2. If there is suspected damage or actual damage, the trucker’s receipt should be so noted.
3. If the dryer is damaged beyond repair, it should be refused. Those dryers which were not damaged in a
damaged shipment should be accepted, but the number received and the number refused must be noted
on the receipt.
4. If you determine that the dryer was damaged after the trucker has left your location, you should call the
delivering carrier’s freight terminal immediately and file a claim. The freight company considers this
concealed damage. This type of freight claim is very difficult to get paid and becomes extremely difficult
when more than a day or two passes after the freight was delivered. It is your responsibility to file freight
claims. Dryer/parts damaged in transit cannot be claimed under warranty.
5. Freight claims are the responsibility of the consignee, and ALL claims must be filed at the receiving end.
Manufacturer assumes no responsibility for freight claims or damages.
IMPORTANT: The dryer must be transported and handled in an upright position at ALL times.

SECTION III
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
Installation should be performed by competent technicians in accordance with local and state codes. In the
absence of these codes, the installation must conform to applicable American National Standards: ANSI Z223.1LATEST EDITION (National Fuel Gas Code) or ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST EDITION (National Electrical
Code) or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable Canadian Standards: 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) or Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION
(for Electrical Connections).
A. UNPACKING/SETTING UP
Remove protective shipping material (i.e., plastic wrap and/or optional shipping box) from dryer.
NOTE: The access keys for the service doors are included in the information packet shipped in the
basket (tumbler). These keys should be removed and put in a safe place yet made accessible
because some will be needed throughout various phases in the installation of the dryer.
Dryers are shipped with a coin box and coin box faceplate ONLY. The coin box lock is not included and
must be purchased elsewhere or the lock can be ordered as a parts order from the manufacturer.
The dryer can be moved to its final location while still attached to the skid or with the skid removed. To unskid
the dryer, locate and remove the four (4) bolts securing the base of the dryer to the wooden skid. Two (2) are
at the rear of the base, and two (2) are located in the front. Once the bolts are removed, slide the dryer off the
skid.
With the skid removed, to make it easier to slide the dryer into its final position, slightly lower ALL four (4)
leveling legs, so that the dryer will slide on the legs instead of the base frame. The dryer is equipped with four
(4) leveling legs, one (1) at each corner of the dryer base. The hex head adjustment bolts for the two (2) front
leveling legs are located directly behind the lower access door, and the rear two (2) adjustments are directly
behind the lower rear back (guard) panel.
For more effective automatic door closure and better tumbling action (and improved efficiency), the dryer
should be tilted slightly to the rear.
B. LOCATION OF THE DRYER
Before installing the dryer, be sure the location conforms to local codes and ordinances. In the absence of such
codes or ordinances the location must conform with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1-LATEST
EDITION, or in Canada, the Canadian Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/
CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION.

1. The dryer must be installed on a sound level floor capable of supporting its weight. Carpeting must be
removed from the floor area that the dryer is to rest on.
IMPORTANT: “The dryer must be installed on noncombustible floors only.”
2. The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water or weather.
3. The dryer is for use in noncombustible locations.
4. Provisions for adequate air supply must be provided as noted in this manual (refer to Fresh Air Supply
Requirements in Section D).
5. Clearance provisions must be made from noncombustible construction as noted in this manual (refer to
Dryer Enclosure Requirements in Section C).
Even though a 12-inch (30.48 cm) clearance is acceptable, it is recommended that the rear of the dryer be
positioned approximately 2 feet (0.61 meters) away from the nearest obstruction, i.e., wall, for ease of
installation, maintenance, and service. (Refer to the illustration below.)
6. Provisions must be made for adequate clearances for servicing and for operation as noted in this manual
(refer to Dryer Enclosure Requirements in Section C).
7. Dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors in an area where correct exhaust venting can be achieved as
noted in this manual (refer to Exhaust Requirements in Section E).
8. Dryer must be located in an area where correct exhaust venting can be achieved as noted in this manual
(refer to Exhaust Requirements in Section E).
IMPORTANT: Dryer should be located where a minimum amount of exhaust duct will be necessary.
9
Even though a 12-inch (30.48 cm) clearance is acceptable, it is recommended that the rear of the dryer be
positioned approximately 2 feet (0.61 meters) away from the nearest obstruction, i.e., wall, for ease of
installation, maintenance, and service.
9. The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.
10. The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
CAUTION: This dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint build up.
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’s outer top, except along the front of the dryer which may be closed in if desired.
NOTE: Even though a minimum of 12-inches (30.48 cm) above the dryer’s outer top is acceptable, a
clearance of 18-inches (45.72 cm) or more is suggested for ease of installation and service
(electrical power connections).
NOTE: When fire sprinkler systems are located above the dryers, a minimum of 12-inches (30.48 cm)
above the dryer’s outer top is required.
NOTE: Allowances must be made for opening the control door.
Dryers may be positioned sidewall to sidewall. However, allowances must be made for 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 on the previous page for details.
NOTE: Air considerations are important for proper and efficient operation.
10
D. FRESH AIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to assure proper performance of each dryer. An
unrestricted source of 800 cfm (22.65 cmm) is necessary for each dryer. An unrestricted air entrance from the
outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 1-1/2 square feet (0.14 square meters) is required for each dryer. This
area must be enlarged if louvers or registers cover the opening. It is not necessary to have a separate
make-up air opening 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 the dryers. For example, for a bank of eight
(8) dryers, a total make-up air opening of 12 square feet (1.15 square meters) is required. Two (2) openings
measuring 2 feet by 3 feet (6 square feet) - 0.61 meters by 0.91 meters (0.56 square meters) are acceptable.
The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
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.
IMPORTANT: Make-up air openings should not be located near ductwork exhaust outlets. If
make-up air openings are too close to the exhaust outlet, lint and fumes may be drawn
back into the dryer area through these openings.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.
11
E. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
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 shut down of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches, burner hi-limits, or basket (tumbler) hi-heat 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.
The exhaust 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. When single dryer 10-inches (25.4 cm) vertical venting is used, the
ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 35 feet (10.67 meters) or for 10-inches
(25.4 cm) horizontal 10 feet (3.05 meters). In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from
the last dryer to the outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters). The shape of the exhaust
ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided.
It is suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º or 45º angles instead. Excluding 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 section area of
the ductwork must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows added.
1. Exhaust Connections of Top and Bottom Baskets (Tumblers)
There is no common venting connection provided with the dryer. Each basket (tumbler) exhaust duct is
provided with its own back draft damper. Each basket (tumbler) can be exhausted directly outdoors
independently or connected to a common duct. Both single or common ductwork can be rigid ducting or
flexible ducting. For common connections, a kit (ADC Part No. 882035) is available from the factory and
includes the necessary flex ducting, elbows, and “Y” assembly, etc., to join the top and bottom exhausts
together.
ALL ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler) exhaust
duct area must be no less than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) water
column (W.C.) when both baskets (tumblers) are operating.
NOTE: Common exhaust connections of top and bottom baskets (tumblers) should be installed in
such a manner that the back guards can be removed easily for servicing.
2. Single Dryer Venting
Where possible, it is suggested to provide a separate exhaust duct for each dryer. The exhaust 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. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º or 45º angles
instead. The shape of the exhaust ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is
provided.
12
NOTE: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area must be no
less than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) water column (W.C.).
It is suggested that the ductwork from each dryer not exceed the limitations noted in this manual. If the
ductwork exceeds these limitations or has numerous elbows, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork must
be increased in proportion to length or number of elbows in it.
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork can only be
increased to an extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum limits as noted
in this manual, a professional heating, venting, and air conditioning (HVAC) firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
The 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. Also, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
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.
To protect the outside end of the horizontal ductwork from the weather, a 90º elbow bent downward should
be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the exhaust ductwork travels vertically up through the
roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the opening downward. In
either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.
NOTE: Refer to the illustrations on page 14 and page 15 for examples of single dryer venting.
13
14
15
3. Multiple Dryer (Common) Venting
If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each dryer, ducts from individual dryers may be
channeled into a “common main duct.” The individual ducts should enter the bottom or side of the main
duct at an angle not more than 45º in the direction of airflow. The main duct should be tapered, with the
diameter increasing before each individual 10-inch (25.4 cm) duct (when dryer common exhaust is used) is
added. If single 6-inch (15.24 cm) basket (tumbler) exhaust ducts are used, the diameter should be
increased after every second 6-inch (15.24 cm) duct.
IMPORTANT: No more than four (4) dryers or eight (8) baskets (tumblers) total should be
connected to one (1) main common duct.
NOTE: Refer to the illustrations on page 18 for examples of multiple dryer (common) venting.
The main duct may be any shape or cross-sectional area so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is
provided. The illustrations on page 18 show the minimum cross-sectional area for multiple dryer venting.
These figures must be increased in proportion if the main duct run from the last dryer to where it exhausts
to the outdoors is unusually long (over 15 feet [4.57 meters]) or has numerous elbows (more than one [1])
in it. In calculating ductwork size, the cross-sectional area of a square or rectangular duct must be
increased twenty percent (20%) for each additional 15 feet (4.57 meters). The diameter of a round
exhaust must be increased ten percent (10%) for each additional 15 feet (4.57 meters).
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork can only be
increased to an extent. Maximum proportional ductwork run cannot exceed 15 feet
(4.57 meters) more than the original limitations of 15 feet (4.57 meters) with two (2)
elbows. When the ductwork approaches the maximum limits as noted in this manual,
a professional heating, venting, and air conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted
for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler) exhaust
duct area must be no less than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) water
column (W.C.).
The 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. Also, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
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.
16
To protect the outside end of the horizontal ductwork from the weather, a 90º elbow bent downward should
be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the exhaust ductwork travels vertically up through the
roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the opening downward. In either
case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.
NOTE: Refer to the illustrations on page 18 for examples of multiple dryer (common) venting.

column pressure.
c. Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas
Dryers made for use with L.P. gas have the gas valve’s internal pressure regulator blocked open so that
the gas pressure must be regulated upstream of the dryer. The pressure measured at each gas valve
pressure tap must be a consistent 10.5 inches (26.1 mb) water column. There is no regulator or
regulation provided in an 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.
22
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 BTUs being supplied.
The dryer is provided with two (2) 1/2” N.P.T. inlet pipe connections (one for each basket/tumbler) at the
rear of the dryer. If a separate feed is provided for each basket (tumbler) from the main supply line
(header), then a 1/2” (12.7 mm) line connection is sufficient. However, if the top and bottom basket
(tumbler) connections are connected together, the supply from the header must be increased to 3/4-inch
(19.05 mm). An optional piping kit is available from the factory as illustrated below and on page 46. It is
recommended that a gas shutoff valve be provided to the gas supply line of each dryer for ease in servicing.
TYPICAL GAS CONNECTIONS
IMPORTANT: When plumbing upper and lower baskets (tumblers) together, as illustrated above,
supply connection must be a minimum of 3/4” (19.05 mm).
23
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 liquid propane [L.P.] gas, the supply tank), the number of tees, other
gas-operated appliances on the supply 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.
Consistent gas pressure is essential at ALL gas connections. It is recommended that a 3/4” (19.05 mm)
pipe loop be installed in the supply line servicing the bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator must be
installed in the gas supply line (header) if (natural) gas line pressure exceeds 12.0 inches (29.9 mb) water
column (W.C.) pressure. Refer to the illustration on page 25 for details.
IMPORTANT: Water column pressure of 3.5 inches (8.7 mb) for natural gas dryers and 10.5 inches
(26.1 mb) for L.P. gas 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.
WARNING: Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid detergent
also works well). NEVER TEST FOR GAS LEAKS WITH AN OPEN FLAME!!!
24
25
H. PREPARATION FOR OPERATION
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 that is
located in the gas train area (right inside wall near sail switch) behind the middle control (access) door.
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.
5. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for tightness.
6. GAS MODELS - be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.
7. Be sure ALL back guard panels and service box covers have been replaced.
8. Check the lint door to assure that it is closed and secured in place.
9. Rotate the basket (tumbler) by hand to be sure they move freely.
10. For more effective automatic door closure and better tumbling action (and improved efficiency), the dryer
should be tilted slightly to the rear.
I. PREOPERATIONAL TESTS
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.
1. Turn on electric power to the dryer.
a. Open ALL gas shutoff valves
2. Dual Microprocessor Controller (DMC) Computer System Operational Test
a. Coin Models Only
1) The light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display(s) will flash back and forth between “FILL” and the
amount needed to start the dryer (i.e., “25”), meaning that the dryer is available and 25¢ is required
to start it.
2) Insert the proper number of coins into coin acceptor. Once the correct amount needed to start the
dryer has been inserted, the L.E.D. display(s) will read “PUSH” ... “tEnP.”
26
3) Start the dryer by pressing the desired setting for either the upper basket (tumbler) or lower basket
(tumbler) (i.e., “LO” selection for the upper basket/tumbler). The light emitting diode (L.E.D.)
display will now read selection (setting) made and the amount of time vended (i.e., “LO 10”).
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart the dryer, shut the
main door and press desired setting.
4) Open main door to stop the dryer, and change selection to “PERM PRESS” (medium) setting.
Repeat this procedure, but change the selection (setting) to “HI” (high). This will confirm that the
setting key circuits and door switch circuits are functioning properly.
NOTE: Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by opening and
closing the main door and then making a new selection.
5) Repeat above procedure for the other basket (tumbler).
b. OPL (Non-Coin) Models Only
1) The L.E.D. display(s) will flash back and forth between “FILL” and “FrEE” meaning that the dryer
is available.
2) Start the dryer by pressing the desired setting for either the upper basket/tumbler or lower dryer
basket/tumbler (i.e., “LO” selection for the upper basket/tumbler). The L.E.D. display will now
read selection (setting) made and the drying time portion of the L.E.D. display will read “00” and
count upwards in time.
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart the dryer, shut the
main door and press the desired setting.
3) Open main door to stop the dryer and change selection to “PERM PRESS” (medium) setting.
Repeat this procedure, but change the selection (setting) to “HI” (high). This will confirm that the
setting key circuits and door switch circuits are functioning properly.
NOTE: Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by opening and
closing the main door and then making a new selection.
4) Repeat above procedure for the other basket (tumbler).
3. Heat Circuit Operational Test
a. Gas Models
When a gas dryer is first started (during initial start-up), it 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.
The dryer is equipped with a Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) system which has internal diagnostics. If
ignition is not established after three (3) attempts, the heat circuit DSI module will lockout until it is
manually reset. To reset the DSI system, open and close the main door and restart the dryer (press
desired temperature selection).
27
NOTE: During the purging period, check to be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are open.
Once ignition is established, 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.
IMPORTANT: THERE IS NO REGULATOR PROVIDED IN AN 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.
4. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., lint basket switches and sail
switches).
5. Each basket (tumbler) should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure that no further
adjustments are necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.
NOTE: The sail switch can be checked for proper operation by opening the control door while the
dryer is running and the heating unit (burner) active (on). The heating unit(s) should shut off
within a few seconds. If not, make the necessary adjustments.
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.
NOTE: Drying and cooling cycles are complete when the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display reads
“donE.”
6. Computer Programs/Selections...
Each Dual Microprocessor Controller (DMC) computer has been preprogrammed by the factory with the
most commonly used program (parameter) selections. If microprocessor (computer) program changes are
required, refer to the Dual Microprocessor Controller (DMC) Programming Manual, which was
shipped with the dryer.
28
J. SHUT DOWN INSTRUCTIONS
In the case where the dryer is to be shut down (taken out of service) for a period of time, the following must be
performed:
1. Discontinue power to the dryer (both baskets [tumblers]) either at the external disconnect switch or the
circuit breaker.
2. Discontinue the gas supply:
a. SHUT OFF external gas supply shutoff valve (for both the top basket [tumbler] and the bottom
basket [tumbler] where the independent supply line for each basket [tumbler] is used).
b. SHUT OFF internal gas supply shutoff valve located in the gas valve burner area (for both the
top basket [tumbler] and the bottom basket [tumbler]).

SECTION VII
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, this 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.
SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
DAILY (beginning of each work shift)
Clean lint from lint drawer/screen.
Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from around microprocessor temperature sensor probes and sensor bracket assemblies.
WARNING: TO AVOID HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.
90 DAYS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system and from the dryer’s
internal exhaust ducting.
35
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AIR AND
VENTILATION AIR.
WARNING: INSPECT AND REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION, WHICH CAN
CAUSE THE BACK DRAFT DAMPER TO BIND OR STICK.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shut down of
the heat circuit safety switches and/or thermostats.
NOTE: When cleaning dryer cabinet(s), 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 belt(s)
should be replaced. Tighten loose belt(s) 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 impossible to re-lubricate the basket (tumbler) bearings if you choose to do so, even
though this practice is not necessary. Use Shell Alvania #2 grease 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 the Maytag dealer by ordering Part No.

NOTE: Once the DMC computer detects a problem, it updates every 30-seconds so that if a problem
was a loose connection in this circuit, which corrected itself, the “dSFL” display condition
would automatically be canceled.
a. Loose wire and/or termination in sensor harness somewhere between the sensor bracket and the DMC
computer.
b. Failed DMC computer temperature sensor.
J.
DMC computer L.E.D. display reads “Hot”...
The “Hot” display condition indicates a possible overheating condition. The DMC computer monitors the
temperature in the dryer at ALL times. If the DMC computer detects that the temperature in the dryer has
exceeded 170º F (77º C), it will disable ALL of the dryer outputs (shut the dryer down), the buzzer (tone)
will sound for approximately 5-seconds, and the L.E.D. display will read “Hot.” The L.E.D. display will
continue to read “Hot” until the temperature has dropped to 170º F (77º C) or lower and the DMC computer
is manually reset by closing and opening the Program Switch (PS).
39
Possible reasons for overheating ...
1. Restriction in location exhaust ductwork ...
a. Dryer exhaust damper stuck in closed position.
b. Undersized exhaust ductwork.
2. Insufficient make-up air.
K. Dual Microprocessor Controller (DMC) computer light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display reads
“SEFL”...
The “SEFL” display condition indicates a rotational sensor circuit failure, which means that there is a fault
somewhere in the basket (tumbler) rotation detection circuit or the DMC computer program related to this
circuit (PL01) is set incorrectly in the active mode (“SEn”) where the dryer is not equipped with the optional
rotation sensor and should be set in the non-active mode (“nSEn”).
If the dryer is equipped with the optional rotational sensor and for whatever reason the DMC computer
detects that the basket (tumbler) is not turning, it will disable ALL of the dryer outputs (shut the dryer
down), and the L.E.D. display will read “SEFL.” The L.E.D. display will continue to read “SEFL” until the
DMC computer is manually reset by closing and opening the Program Switch (PS).

SECTION IX
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.
c. Verify that the motor(s)-(1) and the heat indicator dots-(2) in the microprocessor controller (computer)
light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display are on. (Refer to the illustration below.)
d. Verify that the motor(s) heat and door indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor controller
(computer) board are lit. (Refer to the illustration below.)
44
e. Open main door. The dryer must stop and ALL indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor
(computer) board must go out.
f. Try to restart the dryer with the main door open.
g. The microprocessor controller (computer) board’s light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display must read “DOOR.”
h. Close the main door and restart the dryer.
i. Functional check of microprocessor controller (computer) board is complete.
2. For Models With Johnson Controls Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Module (G760)
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” (L.E.D. flashes).
A steady L.E.D. indicator indicates normal operation.
No L.E.D. indicator indicates a power or an internal failure has occurred.
