INSTALLATION CLEARANCES
Rear Controls Models
For each arrangement, consider allowing more space for ease of
installation and servicing, spacing for companion appliances and
clearances for walls, doors, and floor moldings. Space must be
large enough to allow door to fully open. Add spacing on all sides
of dryer to reduce noise transfer. If a closet door or louvered door
is installed, top and bottom air openings in door are required.

Spacing for recessed area or closet installation
The dimensions shown are for the recommended spacing
allowed.
■■ Additional spacing should be considered for ease of
installation and servicing.
■■ Additional clearances might be required for wall, door, and
floor moldings.
■■ Additional spacing of 1" (25 mm) on all sides of the dryer is
recommended 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 considered.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
GAS SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Gas supply: This dryer is equipped for use with Natural gas. Dryer can be converted to L.P. gas. When rigid pipe is used it should be 1/2" IPS. When
acceptable to the gas supplier and local codes, 3/8" approved tubing may be used for lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m). For lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m), larger
tubing should be used. Pipe-joint compounds resistant to the action of L.P. gas must be used. An individual manual shutoff valve must be installed
within 6 ft (1.8 m) of the dryer in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS - Gas models only
■■ 120-Volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15- or 20-amp fused electrical supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It
is also recommended that a separate circuit serving only this dryer be provided.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS - Electric models only
■■ 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. Connect to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit.
■■ Do not use an extension cord.
WATER (STEAM MODELS ONLY) REQUIREMENTS
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses. Do not overtighten.
Damage to the coupling can result.
VENTING REQUIREMENTS
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
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.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, this dryer MUST BE EXHAUSTED
OUTDOORS.
■■ Only a 4" (102 mm) heavy metal exhaust vent and clamps
may be used.
■■ Do not use plastic or metal foil vent.
■■ Use the following “Vent System Chart” to determine the type of vent
material 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.
Exhaust hoods:
The Vent System Charts provide venting requirements that will help
achieve best drying performance.
■■ Must be at least 12" (305 mm) from ground or any object
that may obstruct exhaust (such as flowers, rocks, bushes,
or snow).

NOTE: Bottom exhaust installations have a 90° turn inside the dryer. To
determine maximum exhaust length, add one 90° turn to the chart.
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.
