REQUIREMENTS
Electrical: A 4-wire, single-phase, 120/240-volt, 60-Hz,
AC-only electrical supply on a separate 30-amp circuit,
fused on both sides of the line is required. A time-delay
fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect to an
individual branch circuit.
Exhaust venting: Exhaust your dryer to the outside.
4" (10.16 cm) diameter vent is required. Rigid or flexible
heavy metal exhaust vent must be used. The total length
of flexible metal vent should not exceed 7-3/4 ft. (2.4 m).
Do not use plastic or metal foil vent. Exhaust outlet hood
must be at least 12" (30.5 cm) from the ground or any
object that may be in the path of the exhaust.
Gas supply: This dryer is equipped for use with Natural
gas. It is design-certified by CSA International for LP
(propane or butane) gases with appropriate conversion.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from
the gas specified on the model/serial rating plate for use
with a different gas without consulting your gas company.
Must include 1/8" NPT minimum plugged tapping
accessible for test gauge connection, immediately
upstream of the gas connection to the dryer.
1/2" IPS pipe is recommended.
3/8" approved aluminum or copper tubing is acceptable
for lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m) if local codes and gas
supplier permit.
If you are using Natural gas, do not use copper tubing.
Lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m) should use larger tubing and a
different size adapter fitting.
If your dryer has been converted to use LP gas, 3/8" LP
compatible copper tubing can be used. If the total length
of the supply line is more than 20 ft (6.1 m), use larger
pipe.
NOTE: Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of LP
gas must be used. Do not use TEFLON® tape.*
Use an elbow and a 3/8" flare x 3/8" NPT adapter fitting
between the flexible gas connector and the dryer gas
pipe, as needed to avoid kinking.
This dryer must be connected to the gas supply line with
a listed flexible gas connector that complies with the
standard for connectors for gas appliances, ANSI Z21.24
or CSA 6.10.
An individual manual shutoff valve must be installed
within six (6) feet (1.8m) of the dryer in accordance with
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. The location
should be easy to reach for opening and closing.

the rear of your dryer has a 3/8" male thread.
