l
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
l
Do Not modify the power supply cord

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.

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.

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.
Failure to follow these instructions could
result in fire damage or personal injury.

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.
