Q Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns.
Q When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
2. Connect vent to exhaust hood
as possible.
Q Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Q Use as few 90° turns as possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
Q 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:
Q Shorten life of dryer.
Q Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.
The “Vent System Chart” provides venting requirements that
will help achieve best drying performance.

(114 mm)
¼"
(6.4 mm)
Place hose into standpipe (shown in picture) or over side of
laundry tub.
IMPORTANT: 4.5" (114 mm) of drain hose should be inside
standpipe; do not force excess hose into standpipe or lay
on bottom of laundry tub. Drain hose form must be used.
Check the drain hose to see whether it is the proper length.
Wet the inside of the straight end of the drain hose with tap
water.
IMPORTANT: Do not use any lubricant other than water.
Squeeze ears of the silver double-wire clamp with pliers to
open. Place clamp over the straight end of the drain hose 1/4"
(6.4 mm) from the end.
4. Remove drain hose form
(floor drain installations only)
2. Attach drain hose to drain connector
(27" model shown)
The appearance of the
24" model will vary
For floor drain installations, you will need to remove the drain
hose form from the end of the drain hose. You may need
additional parts with separate directions. See “Tools and Parts.”
Open clamp. Twist hose back and forth while pushing onto
drain connector on the side of the washer/dryer. Continue until
hose contacts the ribbed stops on the cabinet. Place clamp
over the area marked “CLAMP.” Release clamp.

Connect Inlet Hoses
Washer must be connected to water faucets with new inlet
hoses with flat washers (not provided). Do not use old hoses.
NOTE: Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing
to inlet valves. If you are only connecting to a cold water
faucet, you must use a Y-adapter (not included).
3. Clear water lines
1. Insert washer into each hose
Run water for a few seconds through hoses into a laundry tub,
drainpipe, or bucket to prevent clogs. Water should run until clear.

4. Connect inlet hoses to washer
Insert a new flat washer into each end of the inlet hoses
(not provided). Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.
2. Connect inlet hoses to water faucets
Attach hot water hose to the bottom inlet valve. Screw
coupling by hand until it is snug. Use pliers to tighten
couplings an additional two-thirds turn. Repeat with cold
water inlet valve (top valve).
IMPORTANT: To reduce risk of hose failure, replace the hoses
every 5 years. Record hose installation or replacement dates
for future reference.
Q Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
