(semi-rigid or foil-type) duct to connect the dryer to
the home exhaust duct. It must be installed in
accordance with these instructions and local codes.
Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, gas vent, crawl space, attic, under an enclosed
floor, or in any other concealed space of a building.
The accumulated lint could create a fire hazard.
Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct
with a kitchen exhaust system. A combination of
grease and lint creates a potential fire hazard.
Do not use duct longer than specified in the exhaust
length table. Longer ducts can accumulate lint,
creating a potential fire hazard.
Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.
This will cause lint to accumulate, creating a potential fire hazard.
Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners that
extend into the duct. These fasteners can accumulate lint, creating a potential fire hazard.
Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.
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.
In special installations, it may be necessary to connect
the dryer to the house vent using a flexible metal (foiltype) duct. A UL-listed flexible metal (foil-type) duct
may be used ONLY in installations where rigid metal or
flexible metal (semi-rigid) ducting cannot be used AND
where a 4” diameter can be maintained throughout the
entire length of the transition duct. In Canada and in
the United States, only the flexible metal (foil-type)
ducts that comply with the “Outline for Clothes Dryer
Transition Duct Subject 2158A” shall be used.
EXHAUST LENGTH
The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE duct length and number of
bends of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct,
number of turns, the type of exhaust hood (wall cap), and all
conditions note below. The maximum allowable length for
rigid metal duct is shown in the
table below. More than two 90˚
turns is not recommended. The
total length of flexible metal duct
shall not exceed 8 ft.(2.4 m). In
Canada and in the United States,
the required exhaust duct diameter MAXIMUM LENGTH
is 4in (102mm).

EXHAUST INFORMATION (continued)
EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECK LIST
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 air flow 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
Separate all turns by at least 3 ft. of straight duct,
including distance between last turn and dampered
wall cap. If two turns must be closer than 3 ft., deduct
10 ft. from the maximum lengths shown in the table for
each occurrence.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90˚
• One turn of 45˚ or less may be ignored.
• Two 45˚ turns should be treated as one 90˚.
• Each turn over 45˚ should be treated as one 90˚.
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.
• Do not assemble the duct work with fasteners that
extend into the duct. They will serve as a collection
point for lint.
• Duct joints can be made air and moisture-tight by
wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape.
INSULATION
Duct work which runs through an unheated area or is
near an air conditioning duct should be insulated to
reduce condensation and lint build up and be sloped
down toward outdoors.
NOTE: Never install screen inside exhaust duct.
SIDE OR BOTTOM EXHAUST
STEPS TO CHANGE DRYER TO SIDE OR BOTTOM EXHAUST DIRECTLY ON CABINET
NOTE: Protect your hands and arms from sharp edges when working inside dryer cabinet.
• Detach and remove the desired knockout.
• Remove the screw inside the dryer exhaust duct end.
Keep the screw for step 5. Pull on the duct to remove it.
• Cut the duct as shown. Keep portion A.
• Through the rear opening, locate the tab in the middle of
the dryer base. Lift the tab to about 45˚ using a flat
screwdriver.
• Reconnect and secure the cut portion (A) of the duct to
the blower housing. Make sure that the fixing hole is
aligned with the tab in the base. Use the screw of item 2
to secure the duct in place through the tab on the dryer
base.
• Use standard metal elbows and duct to complete
exhaust system. Insert standard elbow and ducts
through rear and side or bottom openings.
• Cover the opening at the back with the plate (Kit
WE1M454) available from your Local Service Provider.
WARNING: NEVER LEAVE THE BACK OPENING WITHOUT THE PLATE.
