Installation Instructions

EXHAUSTING THE DRYER

CONNECTING THE DRYER TO HOUSE VENT RIGID METAL TRANSITION DUCT

• For best drying performance. a rigid metal transition duct is recommended.

• Rigid metal transition ducts reduce the risk of crushing and kinking.

UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL CLOTHES DRYER TRANSITION DUCT

• If rigid metal cannot be used. then UL-listed flexible metal clothes dryer transition duct (GE Appliances part – PM08X10085) can be used.

• Never install transition duct in walls. ceilings. floors or other enclosed spaces.

• Total length of transition duct should not exceed 8’ (2.4 m).

• For many applications. installing elbows at both the dryer and the wall is highly recommended (see illustrations in next section). Elbows allow the dryer to sit close to the wall without kinking and/or crushing the transition duct. maximizing drying performance.

• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.

UL-LISTED FLEXIBLE METAL (FOIL-TYPE) TRANSITION DUCT

• In special installations. it may be necessary to connect the dryer to the home exhaust vent using flexible metal (foil-type) transition duct. UL– LISTED universal flexible dryer transition duct (GE Appliances parts – PM8X73 or WX8X73) may be used ONLY in installations where rigid metal or flexible metal transition ducting cannot be used AND where a 4” diameter can be maintained throughout the entire length of the transition duct.

• In Canada and the United States. only transition ducts that comply with “UL 2158A STANDARD FOR CLOTHES DRYER TRANSITION DUCT” shall be used.

• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.

• For best drying performance:

1. Slide one end of the duct over the clothes dryer outlet pipe.

2. Secure the duct with a clamp.

3. With the dryer in its permanent position. extend the duct to its full length. Allow 2” of duct to overlap the exhaust pipe. Cut off and remove excess duct. Keep the duct as straight as possible for maximum airflow.

4. Secure the duct to the exhaust pipe with the other clamp.

This dryer MUST be vented to the outdoors.

Use only 4” rigid metal ducting for the home exhaust duct.

Use only 4" rigid metal. UL-listed flexible metal. or UL-listed metal foil dryer transition duct to connect the dryer to the home exhaust.

DO NOT use any plastic to vent the dryer. this includes the home exhaust duct. dryer transition duct. or within the dryer.

DO NOT use flexible metal or metal foil ducting for a home exhaust duct or within the dryer.

DO NOT exhaust into a chimney. kitchen exhaust. gas vent. wall. ceiling. attic. crawl space. or concealed space of a building.

DO NOT install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.

DO NOT install a booster fan in the exhaust duct.

DO NOT use duct longer than specified in the exhaust length table.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or fire.

EXHAUSTING THE DRYER (cont.)

• DO NOT bend or collapse ducting.

Use elbows if turns are necessary.

• DO NOT use excessive exhaust length. Cut duct as short as possible.

• DO NOT crush duct against the wall.

• DO NOT set dryer on duct.

• DO cut duct as short as possible and install straight into wall.

• DO use elbows when turns are necessary.

Elbows

Using exhaust longer than specified length will:

• Increase the drying times and the energy cost.

• Reduce the dryer life.

• Accumulate lint. creating a potential fire hazard.

The correct exhaust installation is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

Problems due to incorrect installation are not covered by the warranty.

The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct. number of turns. the type of exhaust hood (wall cap) and all conditions noted on the chart.

• Internal elbows added for side or bottom vent conversions must be included in the total elbow count.

• Any elbow greater than 45° should be treated as a 90° elbow; one elbow of 45° or less may be ignored.

• Two 45° elbows will be treated like one 90° elbow.

• For the side exhaust installations. add one 90° elbow to the chart.

• For every additional 90° elbow. reduce the allowable vent system length by 10 feet.

• When calculating the total vent system length. you must add all the straight portions and elbows of the system (including the transition duct).

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

• Remove and discard existing plastic or metal foil duct and replace with UL-listed duct.

• Remove any lint from the wall exhaust opening.

Internal Duct Opening

Wall

Check that exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.

STANDARD REAR EXHAUST

We recommend that you install your dryer before installing your washer. This will permit direct access for easier exhaust connection.

Slide the end of the exhaust duct on the back of the dryer and secure with duct tape or a hose clamp.

NOTE: We strongly recommend using rigid metal exhaust duct. However. if flexible ducting is used it must be UL-Listed metal. not plastic.

• For straight line installation. connect the dryer exhaust to the external exhaust hood using duct tape or clamp.

RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION TO MINIMIZE EXHAUST BLOCKAGE

Using duct elbows will prevent duct kinking and collapsing.

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECKLIST

HOOD OR WALL CAP

• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.

• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust airflow and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.

• Wall caps must be installed at least 12” above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

SEPARATION OF TURNS

• For best performance. separate all turns by at least 4 ft. of straight duct. including distance between last turn and dampened exhaust hood (wall cap).

SEALING OF JOINTS

• All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end of each section of duct must point away from the dryer.

• Duct joints should be made air- and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape or aluminum tape.

• Do not assemble ductwork with any fasteners that extend into the duct. These fasteners can accumulate lint. creating a potential fire hazard.

• Horizontal runs should slope down towards the outdoors 1/4” per foot.

• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system. especially at turns and joints.

Exhaust system shall be inspected and cleaned at least once a year.

INSULATION

• Ductwork that runs through an unheated area or is near air conditioning should be insulated to reduce condensation and lint build-up.
