Electrical Connection Information

WARNING:

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE,

ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR PERSONAL INJURY

DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD

WITH THIS APPLIANCE.

THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE PROPERLY

GROUNDED (EARTHED).

Dryer must be electrically grounded (earthed) in accordance with local codes and ordinances.

Electrical requirements:

The operating voltage (volts), amperage (amps) or wattage (watts) and frequency (Hz) of your dryer are indicated on the rating plate located on the upper right corner of the door opening.

The dryer must be connected to an individual branch circuit corresponding to that indicated on the rating plate and protected by the required time-delay fuses or circuit breakers in accordance with governing codes.

If the electrical supply does not meet what is indicated on the rating plate, call a licensed electrician.

IF THE DRYER IS SUPPLIED WITH A FLEXIBLE POWER CORD

Plug the cordset into its own separate grounded outlet. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR

REMOVE THE GROUND PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.

Exhaust Information

WARNING:

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE

AND PERSONAL INJURY

Use only metal duct for exhausting dryer to outdoors.

Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, any gas vent, under an enclosed floor (crawl space), or into an attic.

The accumulated lint could create a fire hazard.

Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system, especially at turns. Inspect and clean at least once per year.

Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a kitchen exhaust. A combination of lint and grease could create a fire hazard.

Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.

Rear Exhaust Location

This dryer comes ready for rear exhausting. If space is limited, use the following instructions to exhaust directly from the side or bottom of the cabinet.

Exhaust Length

The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct, number of turns, type of exhaust hood (wall cap) and all conditions noted below. The maximum allowable length for both rigid and flexible metal duct is shown in the table below. More than two 90° turns are not recommended.

6.

Use standard metal elbows and duct to complete the exhaust system. Insert standard elbows and ducts through rear and side or bottom openings.

7.

Cover the opening at the back with the plate (Kit

WE1M454) available from your local service provider.

WARNING: NEVER LEAVE THE BACK OPENING WITHOUT THE PLATE.

Do not use non-metallic flexible duct.

Hood or Wall Cap

Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.

Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust airflow and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.

Never install screen over exhaust duct.

Wall caps must be installed at least 300 mm (12

) above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

If roof vents or louvered plenums are used, they must be equivalent to a 100 mm (4

) dampered wall cap in regard to resistance to airflow, prevention of back drafts and maintenance required to prevent clogging.

Separation of Turns

For best performance, separate all turns by at least 1.2 m

(4

) of straight duct, including distance between last turn and dampered wall cap.

Turns Other Than 90°

One turn of 45° or less may be ignored.

Two 45° turns should be treated as one 90°.

Each turn over 45° should be treated as one 90°.

Sealing of Joints

All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end of each section of duct must point away from the dryer.

Do not assemble the duct work with fasteners that extend into the duct. They will serve as a collection point for lint.

Duct joints can be made air- and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape.

Exhaust Information (cont.)

Insulation

Ductwork which runs through an unheated area or is near an air-conditioning duct should be insulated to reduce condensation and lint buildup.

OR FLEXIBLE DUCT

If the installation makes it impossible to exhaust to the outdoors, a 100 mm (4

) exhaust deflector (WE25X28) and 600 mm (2

′) rigid metal duct (WX8X64) must be installed over exhaust duct. A clearance of 200 mm (8

) is required between rear of dryer and the wall, and the deflector should be pointing up.

(WE25X28)

Special Installation Requirements

Alcove or Closet Installation

If your dryer is approved for installation in an alcove or closet it will be stated on a label on the dryer back.

The dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.

Minimum clearances between dryer cabinet and adjacent walls or other combustible surfaces are:

0 mm clearance on either side

80 mm (3

) front and rear

Minimum vertical space from floor to overhead cabinets, ceilings, etc. is 1.3 m (52

).

Closet doors must be louvered or otherwise ventilated and must contain at least 400 cm 2 (60 square inches) open area equally distributed. If this closet contains both a washer and a dryer, doors must contain 800 cm 2 (120 square inches) of open space equally distributed.

SERVICING:

CAUTION:

Consideration must be given to provide adequate clearances for installation and servicing.

Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls.

Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous operation

(verify proper operation after servicing/installation).
