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. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.
•
Do not use an extension cord.
•
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your washer/dryer, you must determine the type
of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
instructions provided for it here.
•
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The green cabinet-grounding
conductor is permanently connected to the neutral conductor
(white wire) within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a
4-wire electrical supply connection, the green cabinetgrounding conductor must be removed from the external
ground connector (green screw), and secured under the
neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal block.
When the green cabinet-grounding conductor is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal
block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral conductor.
•
If local codes do not permit the connection of a cabinet
ground connector to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection" section.
•
Use a 4-wire conductor cord when the dryer is installed in a
mobile home or an area where local codes do not permit
grounding through the neutral.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with clothes
dryers. The kit should contain:
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL listed strain relief. The 3-wire power supply cord,
at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have 3, 10-gauge copper wires
and match a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-30R.
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
•
Flexible armored cable or nonmetallic sheathed copper cable
(with ground wire), protected with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
•
10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum).
•
At least 5 ft (1.52 m) long.
GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
[] For a grounded, cord-connected washer/dryer:
This washer/dryer must be grounded. Hnthe event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of
electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for
electric current. This washer/dryer uses a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with alI local
codes and ordinances.
[] For a permanently connected washer/dryer:
This washer/dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
the washer/dryer.
WARNING-"
Hmproper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative or
personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the washer/dryer
is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.

Special provisions for mobile home installations
The exhaust vent must be securely fastened to a noncombustible
portion of the mobile home structure and must not terminate
beneath the mobile home. Terminate the exhaust vent outside.
See the exhaust vent length chart that matches your hood
type for the maximum vent lengths you can use.
Exhaust systems longer than those specified will:

•
Shorten the life of the dryer.
•
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
Determine the number of elbows you will need.
IMPORTANT: Do not use vent runs longer than those
specified in the Vent Length Chart.
Determine vent length
1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most
direct path outdoors. Plan the installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or making
turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually to
avoid kinking. Avoid 90 ° turns when possible.
2.
The following chart helps you determine your maximum vent
length based on the number of 90 ° turns or elbows you will
need and the type of vent (rigid metal or flexible metal) and
hood that you will use.
