Installation clearances:
The location must be large enough to allow the dryer door to
open fully.
Most installations require a minimum 5½" (140 mm) clearance
behind the dryer for the exhaust vent with elbow. See “Venting
Requirements.”
Installation spacing for recessed area or closet
The dimensions shown are for the minimum 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 ventilation 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
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.
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.

■■ 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.
NOTE: Side and bottom exhaust installations for 27" wide
models have a 90º turn inside the dryer. To determine
maximum exhaust length, add one 90º turn to the chart.
