risk of fire or personal injury:

This dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.

Use only metal duct.

• Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, any gas vent, under an enclosed floor (crawl space) or into an attic. The accumulated lint could create a fire hazard.

• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system, especially at turns.

Inspect and clean at least once a year.

• Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a kitchen exhaust.

A combination of lint and grease could create a fire hazard.

• Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.

TOOLS AND MATERIALS YOU WILL

NEED TO INSTALL

EXHAUST DUCT

Phillips-head screwdriver

Duct tape or duct clamp

Rigid or UL-listed flexible metal 4" (10.2 cm) duct

Vent hood

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECKLIST

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.

Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.

Wall caps must be installed at least 12" above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

If roof vents or Iouvered plenums are used, they must be equivalent to a 4" dampened wall cap in regard to resistance to airflow, prevention of back drafts and maintenance required to prevent clogging.

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.

For turns less than 4 ft. apart, see the Ducting Component Equivalency Chart.

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 ductwork with fasteners that extend into the duct.

They will serve as a collection point for lint.

• Duct joints should be made air- and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape or aluminum tape.

• Horizontal runs should slope down towards outdoors 1/4" per foot.

INSULATION

• Ductwork that runs through an unheated area or is near air conditioning insulated to reduce condensation should be and lint buildup.

28

Installation Instructions

DO NOT: USING FLEXIBLE METAL DUCT

FOR TRANSITION VENTING

Rigid or semi-rigid recommended for metal ducting use as transition is ducting between the dryer and the wall.

In special installations when it is impossible to make a connection with the above recommendations, then a UL-listed flexible metal transition duct may be used between the dryer and wall connection only.

The use of this ducting will affect dry time.

If flexible metal transition duct is necessary, the following directions must be followed:

• Use the shortest length possible.

• Stretch the duct to its maximum length.

• Do not crush or collapse.

• Never use flexible metal ducting inside the wall or inside the dryer.

• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.

• Venting must conform to local building codes.

FOR TRANSITION

(DRYER TO WALL),

DO:

DO cut duct as short as possible and install straight into wall.

DO NOT crush duct against the wall.
