H CODES AND max. 27-314” G n If rigid pipe is used as a gas supply line, a combination of pipe fittings must be used to obtain an in-line connection to the dryer. n Provide a rigid gas supply line to the dryer location. When rigid pipe is used it should be l/2 inch IPS. When acceptable to the gas supplier, 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. K. Electrical Shock Hazard Disconnect from electrical supply before removing front panel. Do not operate dryer without panels secured in place. Failure to follow these instructions could result in electrical shock or death. 1, Remove lint screen and set aside. 2. Remove two screws from lint screen area. 3. Raise top by pulling forward and up at each front corner (top is hinged at rear). 4. Remove two internal screws from upper front panel flanges and lift panel off lower clips. 5. Remove door switch leads, if necessary, and set panel aside. 6. Reassemble in reverse order. Electrical requirements Exhaust requirements Electrical Shock Hazard l Electrical ground is required on this appliance. l If cold water pipe is interrupted by plastic, non-metallic gaskets or other insulating materials, Do Not use for grounding. l Do Not ground to a gas pipe. l Do Not modify the power supply cord plug. If it does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. l Do Not have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit. A fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit could result in an electrical shock. l Do Not use an extension cord with this appliance. l Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Failure to flow these instructions could result in serious injury or death. If codes permit and a separate wire is used, it is recommended qualified electrician determine grounding path is adequate. grounding that a that the A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 1.5or 20-ampere fused electrical supply is required. Timedelay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided. Recommended grounding method For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. This appliance is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating 3-prong grounding-type wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSVNFPA 70 - latest edition, and all local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. &prong grounding type wall receptacle The exhaust outlet is located at the bottom center back of the dryer. Detailed space requirements can be found in the “Recessed and closet installation instructions” on the back cover and on back panel of dryer. Fire/Health Hazard Do Not use non-metal, flexible duct. l Do Not use metal duct smaller than four inches in diameter. l Do Not Use exhaust hoods with magnetic latches. l Check that exhaust system is not longer than specified. Exhaust systems longer than specified will: - Accumulate lint. - Shorten the life of the dryer. - Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and increased energy usage. Failure to follow specifications may result in a fire. l The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct used, number of elbows and type of exhaust hood. The maximum length for both rigid and flexible duct is shown in chart. Do Not exhaust dryer into a chimney, furnace cold air duct, attic or crawl space, or any other duct used for venting. l Clean the exhaust system every other year. l Do Not install flexible duct in enclosed walls, ceilings or floors. Accumulated lint could result in a fire or cause moisture damage. l Exhaust the dryer outside to prevent exposure to substances in the gas fuels and combustion which may be harmful to your health. The moisture and lint indoors may cause: - FIRE HAZARD from lint collected in dryer; - Moisture damage to woodwork, furniture, paint, wallpaper, carpet, etc. - House cleaning problems and possible health problems.

For exhaust systems not covered by the exhaust length chart, see Service Manual, Part No. 603197 available from your local parts distributor. Service check: The back pressure in any exhaust system used must not exceed 0.6 inches of water column measured with an incline manometer at the point that the exhaust duct connects the dryer. Use duct tape to seal all joints. For mobile home installation, the dryer must have an outside exhaust. If you exhaust the dryer through the floor and the area under your mobile home is enclosed, the exhaust system must terminate outside the enclosed area. Extension beyond the enclosure will prevent lint and moisture build-up under the mobile home. Metal flexible duct should be fully extended and supported when the dryer is in final position. DO NOT KINK OR CRUSH THE DUCT. The metal flexible duct must be completely open to allow adequate exhaust air to flow. 4-inch outlet hood is preferred, however, 2-l /2 inch outlet may be used with short systems only. (This outlet creates greater back pressure than other hood types.) 0 The maximum length using a 2” x 6” rectangular duct with 2 elbows and a 2-l/2 ’ (TYPE C) Exhaust hood IS 8 ft. An exhaust hood should cap the exhaust duct to prevent exhausted air from returning into dryer. The outlet of the hood must be at least 12 inches from the ground or anything else that may be in the path of the exhaust.
