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. W10775223A 12/2015 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. Louvered Hood Box Hood Acceptable style: Angled Hood Standard Vent System Chart 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) Determine vent path: ■■ Select route that will provide straightest and most direct path outdoors. ■■ Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns. ■■ Long Vent System Chart Number of 90° elbows Type of vent Angled hoods 0 Rigid metal 160 ft. (48.8 m) When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as possible. 1 Rigid metal 150 ft. (45.7 m) 2 Rigid metal 140 ft. (42.7 m) ■■ Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking. 3 Rigid metal 130 ft. (39.6 m) ■■ Use as few 90° turns as possible. 4 Rigid metal 120 ft. (36.6 m) 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.
