Flexible Metal Vent Kit

Exhausting the dryer in hard-to-reachlocations can be accomplishedby installing Kit # 521P3.

CONNECT

DRYER TO

EXHAUST

SYSTEM

Secure all joints with clamps or duct tape. DO NOT use sheet metal

screws or other fastening means which extend into the duct to attach

exhaust pipe joints. They could catch lint and reduce the efficiency of the exhaust system.

IMPORTANT: Keep exhaust duct as short as possible.

Be sure old ducts are clean before installing your new dryer.

To prevent backdraft when dryer is not in operation, outer end of exhaust pipe must have a weather hood with hinged dampers (obtain locally).

Weather hood should be installed at least 12" (30.5 cm) above the ground. Higher clearances may be necessary in areas where heavy snowfall can occur.

No extra system length consideration is necessary when

exhausting through the roof. Use

MAXIMUM EXHAUST LENGTH table to calculate system length. Use a roof cap that provides air flow equal to weather hood.

Exhaust Directions

Dryer can be exhausted to the outdoors through the back, left, right or bottom of the dryer.

Dryer is shippedfrom factory readyfor rearexhaust, No kits required.

To exhaust dryer throughsides or bottom,install a DK1Sales

Accessory (Directional Exhaust Kit 528P3). Available as optional equipment at extra cost.

Use

Exhaust duct must be tour inches (10.2 cm) in diameter without

obstructions. Rigid metal duct is recommended. Non-combustible

semi-rigidflexible metal duct is acceptable.

DO NOT use plastic pipe, foil pipe, or flexible plastic pipe, because it contributes to poor drying performance and collects lint, which can lead to a fire hazard. To identify flexible foil or plastic duct, pinch the coils of the duct between your fingers. If the coils can be brought together, do not use the duct.

Important Safety

About Ground Wires

In the event of an electricalshort circuit, a groundwire reducesthe risk of electric

shock by providing anescape wire for theelectric current.

Standard accepted color codingfor ground wires isgreen or green with a yellow stripe.

Grounding wires and wires colored like grounding wires are NOT to be used as current carrying conductors.

Information

Grounding Instructions

This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal, permanentwiring system, or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dryer.

Power cord (pigtail) is not supplied with electricdryer. Type ofpigtail and gauge of wire must conform to local codesand instructions.

Method of wiring dryer is optional and subject to local code requirements.

Connect dryer to power supply with MAXIMUM RATED VOLTAGE listed on the nameplate.

Use copper wire only. Shorter than 15'(4.5 m) use 10 A.W.G. Longer than

15" (4.5 m) use 8 A.W.G.

WARNING ]

To reduce the risk of fire, the dryer MUST be exhaustedto the outdoors. DO NOTexhaust dryer air into a window well, gas vent, chimney or enclosed, unventilated area, such as an attic, wall, ceiling, crawl space under a building or concealed space of a building.

To reduce the riskof fire, DO NOT use plastic pipe, foil pipe, or flexible plastic pipe to exhaust the dryer.

Never install flexible duct in concealed spaces, such as a wall or ceiling.

[

WARNING

I

To avoid risk of personal injury or death due to electrical shock:

 

Observe all local codes and ordinances.

Disconnect electrical power to unit before servicing.

Ground appliance properly.

DO NOT ground to gas line.

DO NOT ground to cold water pipe if pipe is interruptedby plastic,non-metallicgaskets, or other insulating (nonconducting) materials.

DO NOT modify plug on power cord.If plug doesnot fitelectrical outlet, have proper

outlet installed by qualified electrician.

DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit. A fuse

in the neutral or ground circuit could result in an electrical

shock.

B Install

Dead.on

Use dimensions shown in manual to determine space needed for installation.

Place dryer on a solid floor in an area with an adequate air supply. A Closet door must have a supply air vent of 40sq. in. (260 sq. cm) min.

Dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water and/or weather.

Leveling legs can be adjustedfrom inside thedryer with a 1/4"driver. Allfour legs must rest firmly on thefloor so the weight of the dryer isevenly distributed. The dryer must not rock.

Dryer needs a 3 or 4 wire 120/240 Volt, 30 amp, 60 Hertz, 1 Phase electrical supply. Refer to serial plate for specific requirements. Wiring diagram is located in control hood.

Use rigid or semi-rigidduct and exhaust thedryer to the outside by the shortest route possible. Failure to exhaust dryer properly will void warranty.

Dryer exhaust duct must be secured to the mobile home structure. Dryer exhaust duct MUST NOT terminate under the mobile home.

Exhaust duct must not be connected to any other duct, vent or chimney.

Venting materials are not supplied with the dryer (obtain locally). Do not use plastic or thin foil flexible ducting.

Static pressure in the dryer'sexhaust duct shouldbe nogreater than .6 inches

(1.5 cm). Check with dryer running and no load. This can be measured with a manometer placed on the exhaust duct approximately two feet (61 cm)from thedryer.

For the best exhaust system

Locate dryer so exhaust duct is as short as possible.

Verify old ducts are cleaned before installing new dryer.

Use 4" (10.2 cm) diameter rigid or flexible metal duct.

Use as few elbows as possible.

Use duct tape on all joints.
