1 PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION OF
NEW DRYER
TIP: Install your dryer before installing your washer.
This will allow better access when installing dryer
exhaust.
NOTE: Since January 1, 1996, the National Electric code
requires that the new constructions utilize a 4-wire
connection to an electric dryer.

WARNING:
Only a 4-conductor cord shall be used when the appliance
is installed in a location where grounding through the

the neutral is prohibited for the new branch-circuit
installations, mobile homes, recreational vehicles, and
areas where local codes prohibit grounding through the
neutral conduction.
