Terminate the exhaust vent outside. Determine vent path • Select the route that will provide the straightest and most direct path outdoors. Properly leveling your washer/dryer avoids excessive noise and vibration. • Plan the installation to use the fewest number of elbows and turns. 1. Check the levelness of the washer/dryer by placing a level on the top edge of the washer, first side to side, then front to back. • When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as possible. • Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking. • Use the fewest 90 ° turns possible. 2. If the washer/dryer is not level, prop up the front with the wood block and adjust the feet up or down as necessary. Remove wood block. 3= Determine vent length and elbows needed for best drying performance • Use the Vent system chart below to determine type of vent material and hood combinations acceptable to use. NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified in the Vent system chart. Exhaust systems longer than those specified will: • Shorten the life of the dryer. • Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and increased energy usage. The Vent system chart provides venting requirements that will help to achieve the best drying performance. Vent system chart NOTE: Side exhaust installations add a 90 ° turn inside the dryer. To determine maximum exhaust length, add one 90 ° turn to the chart. Number of 90 ° turns or elbows Type of Vent Box or Louvered hoods Angled hoods Tilt the washer/dryer forward until the rear of the washer/dryer is at least 4" (10.2 cm) off the floor.
