Drying tips
– Observe the maximum loads, see the
"Program Guide".
Overloading the dryer will result in
poor drying results and wrinkling.
– Dry delicate fabrics with the fabric
care symbol r with the "Gentle"
option.
– Do not dry dripping wet items in the
dryer. Spin the laundry after the wash
for at least 30 seconds.
– The fine cotton fabric or down filled
items tends to shrink.
– Dry pure linen items only if it is
advised on the fabric care label. The
surface of the fabric otherwise tends
to become "rough".
– Knitted fabrics (e.g. T-Shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink when
washed and dried for the first time.
Do not over-dry these fabrics.
– Permanent press and delicate
fabrics tend to crease more the
bigger the load size.
For better drying results reduce the
load size or select the "Delicates"
program.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. However, the amount
of starch must be doubled during the
wash.
– Wash new, colored items before
drying for the first time and do not
dry with light-colored items. These
fabrics can "bleed" (also on plastic
parts of the dryer). Colored lint could
adhere to light-colored items.
– Open jackets to allow even drying.
– Wool and wool blends tend to felt
and shrink. Dry these items in the
"Woolens" program.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded.
In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance
for electric current. This appliance is
equipped with a cord having an
equipment grounding conductor
and a grounding plug. Only insert
the plug in an appropriate outlet that
is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
The dryer is supplied with a 5 ft. (1.5 m)
4x10 AWG cord and a NEMA 14-30 P
plug, ready for connection to a
120/240 (208) V, 60 Hz, 30 A AC power
supply.
^ Plug the appliance into a proper
outlet.
If the plug does not fit, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
WARNING – Improper connection of
the equipment grounding conductor
can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician,
service representative or personnel
if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided
with the appliance! If it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
31
Installation
Installation tips
An airflow gap of 3/8" (10 mm) must
be provided between the appliance
and the floor. This airflow gap must
not be blocked by a toe-kick or thick
piled carpets.
Sufficient venting of the installation
site, e.g. by opening a window or
door, is essential for the dryer's
operation. Otherwise drying times
and energy usage may increase.
Determining the position of the
exhaust connection
The exhaust connection can be left at
the rear of the dryer (factory standard)
or moved to the left or right side.
Changing the position of the exhaust
connection
Do not install the dryer next to a
refrigerator. The heat emanating
from the dryer can affect the
thermostat of the refrigerator,
causing it to run continuously.
Room ventilation
The room air, which is taken in when
the dryer is in operation, is blown out
via the exhaust vent. It is important,
particularly if the room is small, to
ensure adequate ventilation and air
supply. Opening a window, for
example, will allow more air to enter the
room. Otherwise drying times and
energy consumption may increase.
32
^ Remove the exhaust connection
cover on the left or right side of the
dryer by turning it counterclockwise
and take it out.
^ Firmly press the cover into the rear
opening.
Installation
How to calculate the effective
duct length
The overall duct length will determine
the duct diameter (see the "Additional
duct lengths" table). In Canada the
exhaust duct must be 4" (102 mm) in
diameter.
^ Measure the actual duct length
needed to go from the dryer’s
exhaust connection to the vent outlet:
1. Establish the number of elbows or
bends necessary, noting the type of
bend, angle and radius involved
(see the "Additional duct lengths"
table).
2. Add the additional duct length (as
derived by using the values
specified in the "Additional duct
lengths" table) to the actual duct
length to get the effective length.
Note:
Maximum effective duct lengths:
4" (100 mm) diameter
66 ft (20 m)
5" (125 mm) diameter
131 ft (40 m)
6" (150 mm) diameter
328 ft (100 m)
If using flexible metal duct the total
length must not exceed 7' 10" (2.4 m).
See the "Additional duct lengths"
table for more information on
maximum duct lengths and number
of bends.
Effective duct lengths over 66 ft (20 m)
require a larger duct diameter.
Longer ducts may lead to slight
decreases in dryer efficiency if the
necessary duct diameter is not
followed.
33
Installation
Tips about the ductwork
– Check with your local building code
to determine the maximum allowable
duct length.
– Only use rigid or flexible metal duct
for exhausting. Non-metallic flexible
hose should not be used, it is a
potential fire hazard.
– Rigid metal or flexible aluminum
ducting is preferred. Flexible foil
ducting may move and bounce due
to the high airflow of the dryer. This
could lead to a thumping or grinding
noise.
– In the United Stated foil-type flexible
ducts should only be used if
identified for use by the manufacturer
as compliant with the Outline for
Clothes Dryer Transition Duct,
Subject ANSI/UL 2158A.
In Canada, only flexible metal
(foil-type) ducts specifically identified
for use by the manufacturer should
be used.
– For best drying results avoid extra
long ducting with too many bends,
angles or tight corners.
34
– Do not assemble the duct with
screws or other fastening devices
that extend into the duct and catch
lint.
– The shorter the exhaust ductwork,
the more efficient the dryer will be.
Expelled air is slowed down in the
ducts due to friction against the inner
walls. The shorter and smoother the
inner walls are, the less friction that
will be created.
– An elbow or bend creates more
friction than a straight duct. An
additional duct length factor must be
added for each elbow or bend (see
Table). This factor expresses the
resistance of the bend in terms of a
straight length of duct.
The additional length factor is then
added to the existing duct to give the
effective duct length.
A larger duct diameter helps to
reduce friction. Therefore the duct
diameter and length should be
increased simultaneously.
