POWER SUPPLY - 3-wireor4-wire ,240 volt, single phase, 60 Hz, Alternating Current.

POWER SUPPLY CORD KIT- The laundry center MUSTemploy a 3-condutor power supply cord NEMA 10-30 type SRDT rated at 240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp, with 3 open end spade lug connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connector OR a 4-condutor power supply cord NEMA 14-30 type SRDT or ST (as required) rated at 240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp, with 4 open end spade lug connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors and marked for use with clothes dryers. If being installed in a new branch circuit installation, manufactured (mobile) home, recreational vehicle or area which prohibits grounding through the neutral conductor, the laundry center MUSTemploy a 4-condutor power supply cord NEMA 1430 type SRDT or ST (as required) rated at 240 volt AC minimum, 30 amp, with 4 open end spade lug connectors with upturned ends or closed loop connectors and marked for use with clothes dryers. See ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. (Canada - 4-wire power supply cord is installed on laundry center).

OUTLET RECEPTACLE - NEMA10-30R(3-wire)receptacle or NEMA 1430R(4-wire)receptacle to be located so the power supply cord is accessible when the laundry center is in an installed position.

WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

Hot and cold water faucets MUST be installed within 42 inches (106.68 cm) of your laundry center’s water inlet. The faucetsMUST be 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) garden hose type so inlet hoses can be connected. Water pressureMUST be between 10 and 120 pounds per square inch (maximum unbalance pressure, hot vs. cold, 10 psi). Your water department can advise you of your water pressure.

NEMA 10-30R

Do not allow combustible materials (for example: clothing, draperies/curtains, paper) to come in contact with exhaust system.The dryer MUST NOTbe exhausted into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space of a building which can accumulate lint, resulting in a fire hazard.

Exceeding the length of duct pipe or number of elbows allowed in the "MAXIMUM LENGTH" chartscan cause an accumulation of lint in the exhaust system. Plugging the system could create a fire hazard, as well as increase drying times.

Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent system, nor use any screws, rivets or other fastening means that extend into the duct and catch lint to assemble the exhaust system.Lint can become caught in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging the duct work and creating a fire hazard as well as increasing drying times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the duct outdoors, and seal all joints with duct tape. All male duct pipe fittings MUSTbe installed downstream with the flow of air.

Explosion hazard. Do not install the dryer where gasoline or other flammables are kept or stored.If the dryer is installed in a garage, it must be a minimum of 18 inches (45.7 cm) above the floor. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, fire or burns. The exhaust system back pressure MUST not exceed 0.6 inches (1.52 cm) of water column, measured with an inclined manometer at the point the exhaust connects to the dryer. The exhaust system should be inspected and cleaned a minimum of every 18 months with normal usage. The more the dryer is used, the more often you should check the exhaust system and vent hood for proper operation.

The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct used, number of elbows and type of exhaust hood.

The maximum length for both rigid and flexible duct is shown in the chart below.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

ALL ELECTRIC Laundry Centers

WARNING The following are specific requirements for proper and safe electrical installation of your laundry center. Failure to follow these instructions can create electrical shock and/or a fire hazard.

WARNING This appliance MUST be properly grounded. Electrical shock can result if the laundry center is not properly grounded. Follow the instructions in this manual for proper grounding.

WARNING Do not use an extension cord with this laundry center. Some extension cords are not designed to withstand the amounts of electrical current this laundry center utilizes and can melt, creating electrical shock and/or fire hazard. Locate the laundry center within reach of the receptacle for the length power cord to be purchased, allowing some slack in the cord. Refer to thepre-installationrequirements in this manual for the proper power cord to be purchased.

WARNING A U.L. approved strain relief must be

installed onto power cord. If the strain relief is not attached, the cord can be pulled out of the laundry center and can be cut by any movement of the cord, resulting in electrical shock.

WARNING Do not use an aluminum wired receptacle with a copper Wired power cord and plug (or vice versa). A chemical reaction occurs between copper and aluminum and can cause electrical shorts.

The proper wiring and receptacle is a copper wired power cord with a copper wired receptacle OR aluminum wired power cord with an aluminum wired receptacle.

GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS

Non-CanadianELECTRIC Laundry Center

DANGER Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check with a licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.

For a grounded, cord-connectedlaundry center:

1.The laundry center MUST be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical shock by a path of least resistance for electrical current.

2.If your laundry center is equipped with a power supply cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug, the plugMUST be plugged into an appropriate, copper wired receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. If in doubt, call a licensed electrician.Do not modify plug provided with the appliance.

For a permanently connected laundry center:

The laundry center 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-groundingterminal or lead on the appliance.

Canadian ELECTRIC Laundry Center

DANGER Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check with a licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.

For a grounded cord connected laundry center:

1.The laundry center MUST be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of

electrical shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electrical current.

NOTE: Laundry centers operating on a 208 volt power supply will have longer drying times than laundry centers operating on a 240 volt power supply.

2.Since your laundry center is equipped with a power supply cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug, the plugMUST be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. If in doubt, call a licensed electrician.

ALL GAS Laundry Centers

1.The laundry center is equipped with a three-prong(grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly groundedthree-prongreceptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from the plug.
