Spacing for recessed area or closet installation
All dimensions show recommended and 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 should be considered on all sides
of the dryer 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
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
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.
WATER (STEAM MODELS ONLY) REQUIREMENTS
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using new inlet hoses (not supplied). 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.
Exhaust hoods:
Recommended styles:
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
■■
Use the following “Vent System Charts” 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 Charts.”
■■
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.

To determine if your model has a long vent system, refer to
the type code located on the serial number plate in the inner
door well. Example: An electric model would be DALV (Long
Vent) – ELE – XXXXXXX-XXX.
NOTE: For long vent systems, use of box/louvered hoods will
improve venting, regardless of length.
