Exhaust duct must be four inches (10.2 cm) in diameter
having no obstructions. Rigid metal duct is
recommended. Non-combustible flexible metal duct is
acceptable. Do not use plastic or thin foil ducting,
because it contributes to poor drying performance and
collects lint, which can lead to a fire hazard.

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

DO NOT use sheet metal screws on exhaust pipe joints
or other fastening means which extend into the duct that
could catch lint and reduce the efficiency of the exhaust
system. Secure all joints with duct tape.

Exhaust System

IMPORTANT : Keep exhaust duct as short as
possble.

NOTE : Be certain old ducts are cleaned before
installing your new dryer.

For best drying results, recommended maximum length
of exhaust system is shown in Table 1.

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

WARNING

A clothes dryer produces combustible
lint.
To reduce the risk of fire or gas
accumulation, the dryer MUST be
exhausted to the outdoors.

This gas appliance contains or produces
a chemical or chemicals which can cause

Exhaust System Maintenance

Dryer Airflow

Efficient dryer operation requires proper dryer airflow.
Proper dryer airflow can be evaluated by measuring the
static pressure.

Static pressure in the dryer’s exhaust duct should be no
greater than 0.6 inchs (1.5 cm). (Check with dryer
running and no load.)

NOTE : This can be measured with a manometer
placed on the exhaust duct approximately 2 ft. (61
cm) from the dryer. 

The dryer interior and the complete exhaust system
should be inspected after one year of use and cleaned if
necessary. Inspect and clean exhaust duct every one to
two years as required thereafter. The weather hood
should be checked frequently to make sure the dampers
move freely, they are not pushed in and that nothing has
been set against them. This maintenance work should be
done by a qualified service person.

Exhausting the dryer in hard-to reach locations can be
accomplished by installing the Flexible Metal Vent Kit,
available as optional equipment at extra cost. The kit
comes in two halves that can be separately attached to
the dryer and wall outlet. Once attached, the dryer can be
slid back into position and the two halves can be
connected from the front.

WARNING

To reduce  the risk of electric shock,
disconnect the electrical power to the
dryer before cleaning.
