CONNECTING INLET HOSES
CONNECTING INLET HOSES
CONNECTING INLET HOSES
(on some models) (cont.)
(on some models)
To produce steam, the dryer must connect to
the cold water supply. Since the washer must
also connect to the cold water, a “Y” connector
is inserted to allow both inlet hoses to make that
connection at the same time.
NOTE: Use the new inlet hoses provided; never use
old hoses.
1. Turn the cold water faucet off. Remove the
washer inlet hose from the washer fill valve
connector (cold).
2. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and
attach one female coupling of the short hose
onto the washer fill valve connector. Tighten by
hand until firmly seated.
3. Attach one male end of the “Y” connector to the
other female coupling of the short hose. Ensure
the rubber flat washer is in place. Tighten by
hand until firmly seated.
7. Using pliers, tighten all the couplings with an
additional two–thirds turn.
NOTE: Do not overtighten. Damage to the couplings
may result.
8. Turn the water faucet on.
4. Insert the filter screen in the coupling of the
washer’s inlet hose. If a rubber flat washer is
already in place remove it before installing the
filter screen. Attach this coupling to one male end
of the ‘’Y’’ connector. Tighten by hand until firmly
seated.
5. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and
attach the dryer’s long inlet hose to one male
end of the ‘’Y’’ connector. Tighten by hand until
firmly seated.
9. Check for leaks around the ‘’Y’’ connector, faucet
and hose couplings.
WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Hot and cold water faucets MUST be installed
within 42 in. (107 cm) of your washer’s water
inlet. The faucets MUST be 3/4 in. (1.9 cm) garden
hose-type so inlet hoses can be connected. Water
pressure MUST be between 10 and 120 pounds
per square inch. Your water department can
advise you of your water pressure.
6. Ensure the rubber flat washer is in place and
attach the other end of the dryer’s long inlet
hose to the fill valve connector at the bottom of
the dryer back panel. Tighten by hand until firmly
seated.
NOTE: A water softener is recommended to reduce
buildup of scale inside the steam generator if the
home water supply is very hard.

Installation Instructions
EXHAUSTING THE DRYER
WARNING
CONNECTING THE DRYER TO HOUSE
VENT
- Fire Hazard
This dryer MUST be vented to the outdoors.
Use only 4” rigid metal ducting for the home
exhaust vent.
Use only 4” rigid metal or UL-LISTED transition duct
to connect the dryer to the home exhaust duct.
DO NOT use a plastic vent.
DO NOT exhaust into a chimney, kitchen exhaust,
gas vent, wall, ceiling, attic, crawl space, or
concealed space of a building.
DO NOT install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.
DO NOT use duct longer than specified in the
exhaust length table.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.
RIGID METAL TRANSITION DUCT
• For best drying performance, a rigid metal transition
duct is recommended.
• Rigid metal transition ducts reduce the risk of crushing
and kinking.
UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL CLOTHES DRYER
TRANSITION DUCT
• If rigid metal cannot be used, then UL-LISTED flexible
metal clothes dryer transition duct (GE parts –
PM08X10085, WX08X10085 or WX08X10077) can be
used.
• Never install transition duct in walls, ceilings, floors or
other enclosed spaces.
• Total length of transition duct should not exceed
8’ (2.4 m).
• For many applications, installing elbows at both
the dryer and the wall is highly recommended (see
illustrations at right). Elbows allow the dryer to sit
close to the wall without kinking and/or crushing the
transition duct, maximizing drying performance.
• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS YOU WILL
NEED TO INSTALL EXHAUST DUCT

UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL (FOIL-TYPE) TRANSITION
DUCT
• In special installations, it may be necessary to connect
the dryer to the home exhaust vent using flexible metal
(foil-type) transition duct. UL–LISTED universal flexible
dryer transition duct (GE parts – PM8X73 or WX8X73)
may be used ONLY in installations where rigid metal or
flexible metal transition ducting cannot be used AND
where a 4” diameter can be maintained throughout
the entire length of the transition duct.
• In Canada and the United States, only transition ducts
that comply with “UL 2158A STANDARD FOR CLOTHES
DRYER TRANSITION DUCT” shall be used.
• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
• For best drying performance:
1. Slide one end of the duct over the clothes dryer
outlet pipe.
2. Secure the duct with a clamp.
3. With the dryer in its permanent position, extend
the duct to its full length. Allow 2” of duct to
overlap the exhaust pipe. Cut off and remove
excess duct. Keep the duct as straight as
possible for maximum airflow.
4. Secure the duct to the exhaust pipe with the
other clamp.

conditions noted on the chart.
• Internal elbows added for side or bottom vent
conversions must be included in the total elbow
count.
• Any elbow greater than 45° should be treated as
a 90° elbow.
• Two 45° elbows will be treated like one 90°
elbow.
• For every additional 90° elbow, reduce the
allowable vent system length by 10 feet.
• When calculating the total vent system length,
you must add all the straight portions and
elbows of the system (including the transition

EXHAUSTING THE DRYER (cont.)
EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECKLIST
STANDARD REAR EXHAUST
HOOD OR WALL CAP
• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry
of birds or other wildlife.
• Termination should present minimal resistance to
the exhaust airflow and should require little or no
maintenance to prevent clogging.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 12” above ground
level or any other obstruction with the opening
pointed down.
SEPARATION OF TURNS
• For best performance, separate all turns by at least
4 ft. of straight duct, including distance between last
turn and dampened wall cap.
SEALING OF JOINTS
• All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end
of each section of duct must point away from the
dryer.
• Duct joints should be made air- and moisture-tight
by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape or
aluminum tape.
• Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners
that extend into the duct. These fasteners can
accumulate lint, creating a potential fire hazard.
• Horizontal runs should slope down towards the
outdoors 1/4” per foot.
• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of
the exhaust system, especially at turns and joints.
Exhaust system shall be inspected and cleaned at
least once a year.
INSULATION
• Ductwork that runs through an unheated area or is
near air conditioning should be insulated to reduce
condensation and lint buildup.
We recommend that you install your dryer before
installing your washer. This will permit direct
access for easier exhaust connection.
Slide the end of the exhaust duct on the back of the
dryer and secure with duct tape or a duct clamp.
