CONNECT INLET HOSES
For non-steam models, skip to “Connect Vent.”
The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using
the new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses.
Connect vent to exhaust hood
Vent must t over the exhaust hood. Secure vent to exhaust
hood with 4" (102 mm) clamp. Run vent to dryer location
using straightest path possible. Avoid 90° turns. Use clamps
to seal all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws, or other
fastening devices that extend into interior of vent to secure
vent, because they can catch lint.
INSTALL VENT SYSTEM
Install exhaust hood
Install exhaust hood and use caulking compound to seal
exterior wall opening around exhaust hood.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
■ Use following Vent System Chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specied
in Vent System Chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
■ Shorten life of dryer.
■ Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times
and increased energy usage.

The Vent System Charts provide venting requirements that
will help achieve best drying performance.
NOTE: Bottom exhaust installations have a 90° turn inside the
dryer. To determine maximum exhaust length, add one 90° turn
to the charts.
Determine vent path:
■ Select route that will provide straightest and most direct
■ Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns.
■ When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
■ Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
■ Use as few 90° turns as possible.
