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
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.

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.
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.
