NOTE: Most installations require a minimum of 5" (127 mm)
clearance behind dryer for exhaust vent with elbow. See “Venting
Spacing for recessed area or closet installation
All dimensions show recommended spacing allowed,
with tested spacing of 0" (0 mm) clearance on sides
and rear.
■■ Additional spacing should be considered for ease
of installation and servicing.
■■ Additional clearances might be required for wall,
door, and floor moldings.
■■ Additional spacing should be considered on all
sides of the dryer 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
ventilitation openings are acceptable.
■■ Companion appliance spacing should also be
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.
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:

Acceptable Style:
NOTE: Bottom exhaust installations have a 90° turn inside the
dryer. To determine maximum exhaust length, add one 90° turn
to the charts.
Angled Hood
Determine vent path:
■■ Select route that will provide straightest and most direct
path outdoors.
■■ 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.
