Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
n
120-Volt, 60-Hz., AC-only, 15- or 2g-amp fused electrical
supply is required. (Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.) It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this dryer be provided.
Explosion Hazard
Use a new AGA or CSA approved gas supply line. Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections. If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 13" (33 ca) water column.
Examples of a qualified person include: licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer 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 dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipment- grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. De not modify the plug provided with the
dryer: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

This dryer is equipped for use with natural gas. It is design- certified by CSA International for L.R (propane or butane) gases with appropriate conversion.
n Your dryer must have the correct burner for the type of gas in
your home. Burner information is located on the rating plate
in the door well of your dryer. If this information does not
agree with the type of gas available, contact your local Sears store or Sears Service Center.
LR gas conversion:
Conversion must be made by a qualified technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different gas without consulting the serving gas supplier.

Gas supply connection requirements There are many methods by which your gas dryer can be connected to the gas supply. Listed here are some guidelines for
two different methods of connection. Option 1 (Recommended method)
Flexible stainless steel gas connector:
If local codes permit, use a new flexible stainless steel gas connector (Design Certified by the American Gas Association
or CSA International) to connect your dryer to the rigid gas supply line. Use an elbow and a %" flare x %" NPT adapter fitting between the stainless steel gas connector and the dryer gas pipe, as needed to prevent kinking.
Option 2 (Alternate method) Approved aluminum or copper tubing:
Lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m) can use %" approved tubing (if codes and gas supplier permit).
If you are using natural gas, do not use copper tubing.
%" flare x %" NPT adapter fitting between dryer pipe and %" approved tubing.
Lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m) should use larger tubing and a different size adapter fitting.
If your dryer has been converted to use L.R gas, %" L.R compatible copper tubing can be used. If the total length of the supply line is more than 20 ft (6.1 m), use larger tubing.
NOTE: Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of L.E gas
must be used. Do not use TEFLON ,< tape.

Burner input requirements Elevations up to 10,000 ft (3,048 meters):
The design of this dryer is certified by CSA International for use at altitudes up to lg,000 ff (3,048 m) above sea level at
the B.T.U. rating indicated on the model/serial number plate.
Burner input adjustments are not required when the dryer is
operated up to this elevation.
Elevations above 10,000 ft (3,048 meters):
When installed above 10,000 ft (3,048 m) a 4% reduction of
the burner B.T.U. rating shown on the model/serial number
plate is required for each 1,000 ft (305 m) increase in
elevation.
Gas supply pressure testing
The dryer must be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during pressure testing at pressures greater than _/2psi.
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent. Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, this dryer MUST BE
EXHAUSTED OUTDOORS.
4" (10.2 cm) heavy metal exhaust vent and clamps must be used.
DURASAFE TM venting products are recommended and are
available from your local Sears store or Sears Service Center.
DURASAFE TM vent products can be purchased from your dealer. For further information, please call 1-800-4-MY-HOME ®

Improper venting can cause moisture and lint to collect
indoors, which may result in:
Moisture damage to woodwork, furniture, paint, wallpaper, carpets, etc.
Housecleaning problems and health problems.
Use a heavy metal vent. Do not use plastic or metal foil vent. Rigid metal vent is recommended to prevent crushing and
kinking.
Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported when the dryer is in its final position. Remove excess flexible metal vent to avoid sagging and kinking that may result in reduced airflow and poor performance.
An exhaust hood should cap the vent to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the home.
Exhaust hood must be at least 12" (30.5 cm) from the ground or any object that may be in the path of the exhaust (such as flowers, rocks or bushes, etc.).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal or flexible metal vent.
Typical exhaust installations
Typical installations vent the dryer from the rear of the dryer. Other installations are possible.

See the exhaust vent length chart that matches your hood type for the maximum vent lengths you can use.
Exhaust systems longer than specified will:
Shorten the life of the dryer.
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and increased energy usage.
3. Determine the number of elbows you will need. IMPORTANT: Do not use vent runs longer than specified in
the Vent Length Chart. The following chart helps you determine your maximum vent
length based on the number of 90 ° turns or elbows you will need and the type of vent (rigid or flexible metal) and hood
that you will use.

1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most direct path outdoors. Plan the installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking. Avoid 99° turns when possible.

2. Install exhaust hood. Use caulking compound to seal exterior wall opening around exhaust hood.
3. Connect vent to exhaust hood. Vent must fit inside exhaust
hood. Secure vent to exhaust hood with 4" (10.2 cm) clamp.
4. Run vent to dryer location. Use the straightest path possible. See "Determine Vent Length." Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps to
seal all joints. Do not use duct tape. screws or other fastening devices that extend into the interior of the vent to secure
vent.

L gl e s
1. To protect the floor, use a large flat piece of cardboard from the dryer carton. Place cardboard under the entire back edge of the dryer. See illustration.
2. Firmly grasp the body of the dryer (not the console panel). Gently lay the dryer on the cardboard.
3. Examine the leveling legs. Find the diamond marking.
4. Screw the legs into the leg holes by hand. Use a wrench to finish turning the legs until the diamond marking is no longer
visible.
5. Place a carton corner post under each of the 2 dryer back corners. Stand the dryer up. Slide the dryer on the corner
posts until it is close to its final location. Leave enough room
to connect the exhaust vent or gas line.
6. Once connection is made and dryer is in final location, remove corner posts and cardboard.
For mobile home use
Gas dryers must be securely fastened to the floor at the time of
installation.
Check the levelness of the dryer. Check levelness first side to side, then front to back.
If the dryer is not level, prop up the dryer using a wood block. Use a wrench to adjust the legs up or down and check again for
levelness. NOTE: It might be necessary to level the dryer again after it has
been moved into its final position.
Make Gas Oo s' ecsL
1.
Remove the red cap from the gas pipe. Move the dryer close
to its final position.
2.
Using a wrench to tighten, connect the gas supply to the
dryer. Use pipe joint compound on all non-flared male threads. If flexible metal tubing is used, be sure there are
