● Do not modify the plug provided with the dryer unitif it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
Installation Instructions
● The dryer must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current. The dryer is equipped
with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a three prong grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with
all local codes and ordinances.

Gas Dryers
NOTE : The gas service to a gas dryer must conform
with the local codes and ordinances or, in the absence
of local codes and ordinances, with the latest edition
of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA
54 or the CAN/CGA-B149, National Gas Installation
Code.
L.P (Liquefied Petroleum) Gas, 2,500 Btu/ft3 (93.1
MJ/m3), service must be supplied at 10 1.5 in. water
column pressure.
NOTE : DO NOT connect the dryer to L.P. Gas
Service without converting the gas valve.
L.P. gas conversion:
In U.S.- Conversion must be made by a qualified
technician.
See gas valve burner base for gas conversion kit part
number.
In Canada- Conversion must be made by a licensed
technician. Contact your local service branch if you
require further assistance.
The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test presure equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.45
kPa).
NOTE : When connecting to a gas line, an equipment
shutoff valve must be installed within 6 feet (1.8m) of
the dryer. An 1/8 in. N.P.T. pipe plug must be
installed as shown. Refer to Fig
Supply line requirements:
Provide a rigid gas supply line to the dryer location.
In U.S.- An individual manual shutoff valve must be
installed within 1.8m (6 feet) of the dryer in accordance
with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1*.
In Canada- An individual manual shutoff valve must be
installed in accordance with the B-149 installation codes,
CAN/CGA B-149.1 and B-149.2*.
When a rigid pipe is used it should be 1/2 inch IPS.
When acceptable to the gas supplier and local codes, 3/8inch approved tubing may be used for lengths under 6.1
m (20 feet). For lengths over 6.1m (20 feet), larger
tubing should be used. Pipe-joint compounds resistant to
the action of L.P. gas must be used.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of gas leaks, fire or
explosion:
• The dryer must be connected to the
type of gas as shown on the nameplate
located in the door recess.
• Use a new flexible stainless steel
connector.
• Use pipe joint compound insoluble in
L.P. (Liquefied Petroleum) Gas, or
Teflon tape, on all pipe threads.
• Purge air and sediment from gas supply
line before connecting it to the dryer.
Before tightening the connection, purge
remaining air from gas line to dryer
until odor of gas is detected. This step
is required to prevent a gas valve
contamination.
• Do not use an open flame to check for
gas leaks. Use a non-corrosive leak
detection fluid.
• Any dis-assembly requiring the use of
tools must be performed by an
authorized qualified service person.
EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
A clothes dryer produces combustible
lint.
To reduce the risk of fire or gas
accumulation, the dryer MUST be
exhausted to the outdoors.
To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT use
plastic or thin foil ductiong to exhaust
the dryer.
Exhaust duct must be four inches (10.2 cm) in diameter
having no obstructions. Rigid metal duct is
recommended. Non-combustible flexible metal duct is
acceptable. Do not use plastic or thin foil ducting,
because it contributes to poor drying performance and
collects lint, which can lead to a fire hazard.
Never install flexible duct in concealed spaces, such as a
wall or ceiling.
DO NOT use sheet metal screws on exhaust pipe joints
or other fastening means which extend into the duct that
could catch lint and reduce the efficiency of the exhaust
system. Secure all joints with duct tape.
Exhaust System
IMPORTANT : Keep exhaust duct as short as
possble.
NOTE : Be certain old ducts are cleaned before
installing your new dryer.
For best drying results, recommended maximum length
of exhaust system is shown in Table 1.
Troubleshooting Tips
To prevent backdraft when dryer is not in operation,
outer end of exhaust pipe must have a weather hood with
hinged dampers (obtain locally).
Operating Instruction
To reduce the risk of fire and the
accumulation of combustion gases, DO
NOT exhaust dryer air into a window well,
gas vent, chimney or enclosed,
unventilated area, such as an attic, wall,
ceiling, crawl space under a building or
concealed space of a building.
Exhaust system materials are not supplied with the dryer.
Installation Instructions
This gas appliance contains or produces
a chemical or chemicals which can cause
death or serious illness and which are
known to the State of California to cause
cancer, birth defects, or other
reproductive harm. To reduce the risk
from fuel combustion, make sure this

The dryer interior and the complete exhaust system
should be inspected after one year of use and cleaned if
necessary. Inspect and clean exhaust duct every one to
two years as required thereafter. The weather hood
should be checked frequently to make sure the dampers
move freely, they are not pushed in and that nothing has
been set against them. This maintenance work should be
done by a qualified service person.
Efficient dryer operation requires proper dryer airflow.
Proper dryer airflow can be evaluated by measuring the
static pressure.
Static pressure in the dryer’s exhaust duct should be no
greater than 0.6 inchs (1.5 cm). (Check with dryer
running and no load.)
NOTE : This can be measured with a manometer
placed on the exhaust duct approximately 2 ft. (61
cm) from the dryer.

Care of Your Dryer
Clean the lint filter before drying each load. The lint
filter may be washed if needed. Annually remove the lint
filter and attach to the vaccuum duct under it.
Ordinarily, the dryer cylinder will need no care.
Wipe the exterior dryer cabinet as needed. If detergent,
bleach or other washing products are spilled on the
cabinet, wipe immediately. Some products will cause
permanent damage if spilled on the cabinet.
Use only a damp cloth for cleaning the control panel.
Some spray prewash products may harm the finish on
the control panel.
NOTE: The wiring diagram is located inside the
control panel.
WARNING
Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause
improper and dangerous operation.
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the
dryer. Clean it before or after each load. A screen
blocked by lint can increase drying time.
To clean
1. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the
screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
■ Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose,
damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause
overheating and damage to both the dryer and
fabrics.
■ Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural
fibers (polyester and cotton blends) may shed more
lint than other towels, causing your dryer's lint
screen to fill up faster. Be sure to remove lint from
the lint screen before and after drying new towels.
■ If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during
removal, check the exhaust hood and remove the
lint.
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can
build up on the lint screen. This buildup can cause
longer drying times for your clothes, or cause the dryer
to stop before your load is completely dry. The screen
is probably clogged if lint falls off the screen.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every six
months, or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due
to a residue buildup.
To wash
Customer Service
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
22
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid
detergent. Scrub lint screen with the brush to
remove residue buildup.
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Completely dry lint screen with a clean towel.
Replace screen in dryer.

Possible Causes
What To Do
Improper sorting
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items
(generally, a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted
dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics
(like beach towels)
• Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take
longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller
loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set
• Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint Filter is full
• Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed ducting
• Check installation instructions for proper
ducting/venting.
• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and
obstructions.
• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the
dryer venting is correct.
Clothes are wrinkled
Clothes shrink
Blown fuses or tripped circuit
breaker
• Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most
dryers use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are
operating.
Overloading/combining loads
• Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at
a time.
Underloading
• If you are drying only one or two items, add a few
items to ensure proper tumbling.
Overdrying
• Select a shorter drying time.
• Remove items while they still hold a slight amount of
moisture.
Letting items sit in dryer after
cycle ends
• Remove items when cycle ends and fold or hang
immediately.
Some fabrics will naturally
shrink when washed. Others can
be safely washed, but will shrink
in the dryer.
• To avoid shrinkage, follow garment care labels exactly.
• Some items may be pressed back into shape after
drying.
• If you are concerned about shrinkage in a particular
item, do not machine wash or tumble dry it.
