of 3.8 cu. ft. capacity washer).
Minimum spacing for recessed area or closet
installation
*Most installations require a minimum 5½" (140 mm) clearance
behind the dryer for the exhaust vent with elbow. See “Venting
Requirements.”
Minimum Required Spacing
The dimensions shown following are for the minimum spacing
allowed.

■■ Additional spacing of 1" (25 mm) on all sides of the dryer
is recommended to reduce noise transfer.
■■ For closet installation, with a door, minimum ventilation
openings in the top and bottom of the door are required.
Louvered doors with equivalent ventilation openings
are acceptable.
■■ Companion appliance spacing should also be considered.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240 volt, 60 Hz., AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208 volt electrical
supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker is recommended. Connect to an individual branch circuit.
VENTING REQUIREMENTS
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the outside. 4" (102 mm)
diameter vent is required. Rigid or flexible metal exhaust vent
must be used. Do not use plastic or metal foil vet. Exhaust hood
must be at least 12" (305 mm) from the ground or any object that
may be in the path of the exhaust.
Exhaust hoods:
Recommended Styles:
Louvered Hood
Box Hood
Acceptable Style:
Angled Hood

■■ Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns.
■■ When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
as possible.
■■ Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
■■ Use as few 90° turns as possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
■■ Use following Vent System Chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified
in Vent System Chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
■■ Shorten life of dryer.
■■ Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.
