See “Venting Requirements.” 3"/3" (76 mm) 6"/0"* (152 mm) 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. 24"2/24"2 (155 cm2) 1"/1"* (25 mm) 1"/0"* (25 mm) *Recommended/Minimum spacing W10725269A 01/2015 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 A 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, 15 or 20 amp fused electrical supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker and a separate circuit are recommended. 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. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect to an individual branch circuit. 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 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. 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: Exhaust hoods: Recommended Styles: ■■ Shorten life of dryer. ■■ Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and increased energy usage. The Vent System Charts provide venting requirements that will help achieve best drying performance. Louvered Hood Box Hood Vent System Chart Acceptable Style: 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 Number of 90° elbows Type of vent Angled hoods 0 Rigid metal 64 ft. (20 m) 1 Rigid metal 54 ft. (16.5 m) 2 Rigid metal 44 ft. (13.4 m) 3 Rigid metal 35 ft. (10.7 m) 4 Rigid metal 27 ft. (8.2 m) turns. ■■ When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as possible. NOTE: Bottom exhaust installations have a 90° turn inside the dryer. To determine maximum exhaust length, add one 90° turn to the charts. ■■ Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking. ■■ Use as few 90° turns as possible.
