■■ To contact a qualified electrical installer.
■■ To be sue that the electrical connection is adequate and in
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electrical Code requires a 4-wire power supply
connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits involved
in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park,

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. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.
■■ Do not use an extension cord.
■■ If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the

connection” section.
■■ This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire is
permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical
supply connection, the neutral ground wire must be removed
from the external ground connector screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of
the terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal
block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral conductor.
■■ A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
dryer is installed in a location where grounding through the
neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the neutral
is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations, (2) mobile
homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas where local
codes prohibit grounding through the neutral conductors.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with
clothes dryers. The kit should contain:
■■ A UL listed 30-amp power supply cord, rated 120/240 volt

■■ Use following Vent system chart to determine the elbow and
hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified
in the 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.
The Vent system chart provides venting requirements that will
help achieve best drying performance.
Level Dryer
Check the levelness of the dryer. Check levelness first side to
side, then front to back.
If the dryer is not level, prop up the dryer using a wood block.
Use a wrench to adjust the legs up or down and check again
for levelness.
NOTE: It might be necessary to level the dryer again after it is
moved into its final position.
Connect Vent
1. Using a 4" (102 mm) clamp, connect vent to exhaust outlet
in dryer. If connecting to existing vent, make sure the vent is
clean. The dryer vent must fit over the dryer exhaust outlet
and inside the exhaust hood. Check that the vent is secured
to exhaust hood with a 4" (102 mm) clamp.
2. Move dryer into its final location. Do not crush or kink vent.
Make sure dryer is level.
3. Once the exhaust vent connection is made, remove the
corner posts and cardboard.

■■ Dryer is plugged into an outlet and/or electrical supply
is on.
■■ Household fuse is intact and tight, or circuit breaker has
not tripped.
■■ Dryer door is closed.
11.When the dryer has been running for 5 minutes, open the
dryer door and feel for heat. If you feel heat, cancel cycle and
close the door.
If you do not feel heat, turn off dryer, and check the
following:
■■ There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for
the dryer. Check that both fuses are intact and tight, or
that both circuit breakers have not tripped. If there is still
no heat, contact a qualified technician.
NOTE: You may notice an odor when the dryer is first heated.
This odor is common when the heating element is first used.
The odor will go away.
