A wiring diagram for the dryer is located

on the inside of the dryer access panel. A wiring
diagram for the washer is located on the inside
of the washer cabinet.

UNCRATING

To remove carton, cut around bottom of carton
on or below dotted line. Cut down each corner
of carton (vertically) and “peel” carton away from
stacked washer/dryer. Fold carton material for
removal. Check the unit for shipping damage.

Remove the tape between the washer cabinet
and the dryer stand. Disconnect the control wire
harness which leads from the dryer to the
washer. You will need to depress the locking
tabs to separate the connector.

From the back of the stacked washer/dryer,
grasp the dryer and stand. Pull dryer and stand
back and off of washer and shipping base. As
dryer and stand are pulled back, carefully drop
dryer stand rear legs to
the floor before clearing
shipping base. (Do not
drop dryer and stand
off of shipping base!)

Untape and open washer lid. Remove installa-
tion accessory package, fill hoses and close lid.
Leave tub block in place until installation is
complete. Be sure to remove tub block after
installation is complete and before use!

Using the carton corner posts stacked in pairs,
lay the washer on the posts on the left side.
Remove the crate base wires from the carton
base. Use pliers or screwdriver to pry wires from
wood. (Do not kick the shipping base off the
washer.)

PREINSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS

Location: The stacked washer/dryer is approved
for zero clearance installation on the sides and
the back (depending on venting used). The loca-
tion selected must take into consideration the
dimensions of the unit and convenience for cus-
tomer use and access in case service should be
needed. The floor must be capable of supporting
the weight of the unit (approximately 310 lbs.)
plus water (approximately 150 lbs.) and be stable

enough to prevent excessive vibration in spin
cycles.

A floor which is adequate for the

standard washer is sufficient for the stacked
washer/dryer.

ALCOVE OR CLOSET
INSTALLATION

When the stacked washer/dryer is to be installed
in an alcove area or a closet, clearance should
be provided around the unit for an adequate air
supply and for ease of installation and servicing.
An appliance installed in a closet shall have no
other fuel burning appliance installed in the
same closet, such as gas furnace, water heater
or space heater, etc.

The dryer must be exhausted to the outside to
minimize excessive lint accumulation and to
maintain good drying. We recommend allow-
ance for more clearance than the minimum
installation clearances as shown.

Exhaust the dryer using metal exhausting
material or exhaust kit (see your authorized
Maytag dealer), and locate in an area that
provides adequate make-up air. The exhaust
duct may not terminate beneath the mobile home.

MAKE-UP AIR

For proper operation of the dryer unit it is impor-
tant to make sure the location has adequate
make-up air. This is especially important in any
confined area such as bathroom or closet. There
must be at least two 36 square inch unobstructed
openings for intake air. This can be a louvered
door or other equivalent opening.

On gas dryer units in particular, adequate clear-
ance as noted on the dryer minimum clearance
label should be maintained to insure enough air
for combustion and the proper operation of the
dryer.

The area where located must not

obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilating
air.

When installing a Maytag Stacked Washer/

Dryer the following minimum clearances to
combustible surfaces must be maintained.
Clearance to wall, sides – 0 inches, top – 6 inches,
front – 1/2 inch to washer, rear – 0 inches with an
outside exhaust, 4 inches with an inside exhaust
(not recommended). See Exhausting section and
Installation Accessories for exhaust kits.

SERVICE ACCESS

Location should allow access to the front of the
unit for washer and dryer service. Access must
also be available to two screws at the top front
corners of the dryer front panel (on the top).

EXHAUSTING

The free air flow rate is approximately 180 cubic
feet per minute. The vent system carries lint and
moisture away and to the outside. The length of
the venting and the number of elbows affect the
air flow rate and the efficiency of the exhaust system.

DO NOT EXHAUST DRYER INTO ANY WALL,
CEILING, CRAWL SPACE OR A CONCEALED
SPACE OF A BUILDING, VENT CONNECTION,
GAS VENT OR CHIMNEY.

THIS COULD

CREATE A FIRE HAZARD FROM LINT
EXPELLED BY THE DRYER. FOR THE SAME
REASON, WE RECOMMEND ONLY METAL
EXHAUST DUCT TO MINIMIZE RESTRICTED
AIR FLOW AND RELIABLY INSURE THE
CONTAINMENT OF EXHAUST AIR, HEAT AND

opening is acceptable.)

MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION

Installation of Maytag dryers certified by the
American Gas Association and bearing a label
stating they are suitable for installation in mobile
homes, must conform to the Manufactured
Home Construction and Safety Standard Title 24
CFR, Part 32-80.

When installing this appliance in a mobile home,
provisions for anchoring the dryer should be
made. An anchor bracket kit is available to fas-
ten dryer stand to the floor.

Instructions for

installing the anchor brackets are contained in
each kit. (See your authorized Maytag dealer.)

All mobile home installations must be exhausted
to the outside with the exhaust duct termination
securely fastened to the mobile home structure,
using materials that will not support combustion.

LINT.

NEVER INSTALL A SCREEN OVER

EXHAUST OUTLET. NEVER USE PLASTIC OR
OTHER COMBUSTIBLE DUCTWORK.

AT

LEAST ONCE A YEAR, INSPECT AND CLEAN
INTERIOR OF DUCTWORK.

FREQUENTLY

CHECK AND CLEAN VENT HOOD TO ASSURE
PROPER OPERATION.

A clothes dryer produces combustible lint and
the area around the clothes dryer should be kept
free of lint.

DO NOT STORE FLAMMABLE

LIQUIDS OR MATERIALS NEAR A DRYER.

It is recommended that the dryer be exhausted
to the outside using 4 inch rigid or flexible metal
ducting.

When located in a bedroom, bathroom or closet,
the dryer must be exhausted to the outside.

The stacked washer/dryer can only be exhaust-
ed out the back.

A 4 inch vent should be

installed to accept the exhaust from the dryer.

To permit sufficient air circulation under the
exhaust hood, there should be no less than a 12
inch clearance between the bottom of the
exhaust hood and the ground. When possible
the exhaust hood should not exhaust directly
into a window well. DO NOT terminate exhaust
under a building.

NOTE:

Where the exhaust hood is to be

installed through masonry, a special masonry
saw is necessary to cut the hole.

Install the exhaust hood and secure with screws
to the outside wall and seal with caulking compound.

DIRECT EXHAUST

An exhaust hood positioned to line up with the
dryer exhaust pipe can be installed directly
through an outside wall. This would be the
shortest and most direct exhaust method.

To exhaust up, route standard 4 inch diameter
ducting up the recess in the cabinet back using
the furnished retaining strap and screws to get
nearly flush to wall installation. To exhaust to the
side or down, install the furnished 4 inch long
duct with four “S” clips to the inner dryer exhaust,
then use standard 4 inch ducting. This will posi-
tion the dryer about 4-1/2 inches away from the
wall. Flush-to-wall side exhausting may be done
by going above the dryer before going sideways.

When exhausting down, wallboard can be
removed from the wall to get the dryer closer to
the wall by placing the exhaust pipe between
studs.

Check local codes for required

exhaust clearances.

Install ductwork from the dryer to exhaust hood.
All joints must be made so exhaust end of one
pipe is inside the intake end of next pipe. On
flexible metal ductwork, all joints should be
secured with a clamp.

DO NOT

use sheet metal

screws when assembling rigid ducting. Joints
should be taped.

FLEXIBLE DUCTWORK
LIMITATIONS

Flexible metal ductwork should not exceed 34
feet of straight 4 inch ducting. The exhaust hood
is equivalent to 8 feet of duct and each 90° bend
is equivalent to 8 feet. As an example, if an
exhaust hood is used and two 90° bends, the
maximum straight run would be 10 feet.

NOTE:

If the radius of a bend with 4 inch duct is

12 inches or greater, the bend can be considered
a straight run. No more than three 90° bends
should be used in any run with an exhaust hood.

If flexible metal exhaust ducting is used, the short
extension supplied with this machine can be
secured to the dryer exhaust with the clips and
the flexible metal duct can be clamped to the
short extension.

RIGID DUCTWORK
LIMITATIONS

Rigid metal ductwork should not exceed 54 feet
of straight 4 inch duct. Each 90° elbow and the
exhaust hood should be considered equivalent
to 8 feet of straight ductwork.

For example, if an exhaust hood and two 90°
elbows are used, the maximum straight duct
allowed would be 26 feet. Not more than three
90° elbows should be used in any rigid ductwork
run with an exhaust hood. Four feet of straight
duct should be allowed between 90° elbows.

ELECTRIC DRYER UNITS
U.S. MODELS

Grounding Instructions

This electric dryer 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 grounding terminal on the back panel.

Electric models are shipped with a ground strap
connected from the neutral (P2) terminal block
post to the frame of the dryer. The use of this
strap is permitted by the national electrical code.
The dryer electrical supply may be connected by
means of a new U.L. listed power supply cord kit
rated at 240 volts minimum, 30 amperes with
three No. 10 copper wire conductors terminated
with closed loop terminals, open-end spade lugs
with turned up ends or with tinned leads.

The power cord must be marked for use with a
clothes dryer and be retained with suitable strain
relief. If the dryer is to be installed in a mobile
home or an area where local codes do not
permit grounding through neutral, only 4
conductor power cord, rated and terminated as
above, may be used.

The electrical supply circuit should be fused
through a 30 ampere fuse or circuit breaker on
both sides of the line. The neutral line of the
service cord must always be connected to the
P2 terminal post.

The two hot lines of the

service cord go to the P1 and P3 terminal block
posts. The neutral should not be fused or
broken. Be sure terminal block nuts are tight
and replace access cover.

Canadian models are shipped with approved
power cord sets attached.

G.F.I.

If the electric dryer is protected by a GROUND
FAULT INTERRUPTER, follow the procedure on
the next page for a 4-wire hook-up.

4-WIRE RECEPTACLE

For a 4-wire hook-up, the frame of a 120/240 volt
machine must NOT be connected to neutral
terminals. It MUST be connected to the 4th wire
(green) of the power supply or to the metallic
covering of a 3-wire supply.

If a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA
type is used, a matching U.L. list-
ed power supply cord (pigtail)
must be used. This cord contains
four No. 10 copper conductors
with spade or ring terminals on the dryer end.
The 4th (grounding) conductor must be identified
by a green cover and the neutral conductor by a
white cover. The cord should have a suitable
strain relief, and should be a minimum 4 feet
long. The power supply cord and strain relief are
not provided with the dryer.

4-WIRE SYSTEM CONNECTIONS

1. Remove the terminal block cover.

2. Remove the ground strap screw from the

terminal block support. Fold the ground strap
over so both ends of the ground strap are
attached to the center terminal block post.

3. Connect the neutral (white) wire of the power

supply cord to the center (silver colored) terminal
of the terminal block. Connect the grounding
(green) wire of the cord to the terminal block
support using the ground strap screw.

4. Connect the other two wires of the cord to the

outer terminals of the terminal block.

5. Replace the terminal block cover.

208 VOLT OPERATION

A stacked washer/dryer model is available for
208 volt operation.

Canadian Models

All Canadian models are shipped with the power
cord attached. The dryer power cord should be
plugged into a 30 ampere receptacle and fused
through a 30 ampere fuse or comparable circuit
breaker on both sides of the line.

NOTE:

It is not permissible to convert a dryer in

Canada to 208 volts. A 208 volt model is not
available for Canada.

WATER SUPPLY AND DRAIN

WATER SUPPLY

The water supply to the washer unit should be
capable of providing both adequate water
pressure and water temperature. The pressure
should fall within the range of 20 pounds per
square inch to 120 pounds per square inch
when the washer is filling. Note that this is flow
pressure and not static pressure.

Low water

pressure will result in slow fill and could result in
a water valve sticking open after a fill.

The recommended temperature of the hot water
as delivered to the washer should be 140° F.

Warm water temperature is a result of the mix of
the hot and cold water supplies.

The final

temperature is dependent on both the pressure
and the temperatures of the hot and cold
supplies. The desired temperature for warm is
between 100° F. and 105° F.

DRAIN FACILITIES

The drain must be capable of accepting a flow
rate of approximately 20 gallons per minute. An
inside diameter of at least 1 1/2 inches is required.

36 inch standpipe recommended

If standpipe is less than 36 inches

(or floor

drain) – drain hose should be routed through the
clip to raise hose to the proper height, use clip
tie to securely hold drain hose in clip.

Installation accessory kits are available for other
types of drain facility conditions…see Washer
Installation Accessory Kits table on page 13.

The use of a laundry built-in wall box can greatly
simplify installation.

If the faucets and/or drain is located to either
side of the stacked washer/dryer, openings are
located in the dryer stand uprights to allow
hoses and power cords to be passed through.
This is to allow installation against the back wall.
(This is dependent on venting used.)

GAS CONNECTION

Gas operated dryers are equipped with a burner
orifice for operation on NATURAL GAS. If the
dryer is to be operated on LP GAS, it must be
converted correctly for safety and proper
performance. Conversion kits from NATURAL to
LPG, or LPG to NATURAL are available through
your local Maytag dealer. If other conversions
are required, check with local gas utility for
specific information concerning conversion
requirement.

NOTE: The conversion should

always be performed by a qualified service
technician.

NOTE:

If the dryer is to be converted in

Canada, the conversion shall be carried out in
accordance with the requirements of the
provincial authorities having jurisdiction and in
accordance with the requirements of the CAN-
B149.1 and CAN1-B149.2 installation code.

A 1/2 inch gas supply line is recommended and
must be reduced to connect to the 3/8 inch gas
line on the dryer.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

When installing the gas

line, route it so that it will not interfere with the
washer once the washer is pushed back into
position. It is important to make sure the gas line
does not come into contact with either the
washer drain hose or any part of the washer.

NOTE:

A 3/8 inch x 1 inch pipe nipple is includ-

ed to adapt valve connection from a 3/8 inch
female to a 3/8 inch male I.P.S. connection.

Additionally, a 1/8 inch N.P.T. (National Pipe
Thread) plugged tapping, accessible for test
gauge connection, must be installed immediately
upstream of the gas supply connection to the
dryer.

Dryer

Gas Line

1/8" NPT Plug

Gas Line

Refer to your local gas utility or plumbing
contractor should you have questions on the
installation of the plugged tapping.

The dryer and its individual shut-off valve must
be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of the
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2
P.S.I.G.

The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual
shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the
gas supply piping system at test pressures equal
to or less than 1/2 P.S.I.G.

The gas supply should be connected to the
dryer using pipe joint compound or a Teflon tape
on male thread connections.

NOTE:

Any pipe

joint compound used must be resistant to the
action of any liquefied petroleum gas.

Turn on gas supply and open the shut-off at the
gas valve.

DO NOT use an open flame to

check for gas leaks.

Check all gas connections

for leaks using a soap solution. If bubbles occur,
tighten the connections and recheck.

NOTE:

As a courtesy, many local gas utilities

will inspect a gas appliance installation. Check
with your utility to see if this service is provided
in your area.

GAS IGNITION

This dryer uses an automatic ignition system to
light the main burner when the dryer is turned
on.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

ODD CYCLE OPERATION

This Maytag stacked washer/dryer is manufac-
tured for operation on 60 Hz approved electrical
service. It is not designed for use on 50 Hz AC
electrical service and conversion of the product
from 60 to 50 cycle operation is not recom-
mended. For additional information on 50 cycle
products, write, MAYTAG INTERNATIONAL,
INC., 8700 Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago, Illinois
60631 or GRAY DISTRIBUTING CO., LTD., P.O.
Box 2597, Honolulu, Hawaii 96803.

LUBRICATION

No routine lubrication is required to maintain the
stacked washer/dryer. In the event something
does need attention, contact an authorized
Maytag dealer or servicer.

FINISH

All the cabinetry and external finishes are
protected against rust to keep product looking
well for many years. Cleaning and waxing will
provide additional protection to these finishes.

The washer top has a porcelain finish.

Since

porcelain is “glass” bonded to metal, it is very
durable.

Avoid damage from sharp blows of

objects or tools used around and in the appliance.

Clean the control panel with a soft damp cloth.
Avoid abrasive cleaners that would scratch sur-
face. A coat of household wax will reduce the
chance of scratches on the control panel surface.

CAUTION:

If “spilled” or used improperly,

bleaches and other strong laundering chemicals
can permanently spot or stain finishes unless
wiped up immediately.

Aerosol pretreated

products can also damage finish on control
panel. When using these products on garments
placed in the stacked washer/dryer, it is advisable
to avoid control panel area with the overspray.

WATER DAMAGE FROM 
FLOODING

In the event the stacked washer/dryer is
exposed to water from flooding, call your local
Maytag dealer before using. Always unplug the
appliance and have a qualified technician
inspect the appliance before any attempt is
made to operate the unit. Never wash product
inside and out with a garden hose or pressure
cleaning system.
