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

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECK LIST HOOD OR WALL CAP

• Terminate in a manner to prevent back draf& or entry of birds or other wildlifK

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

• Never install a screen in or over tfie exhaust duct. This could cause lint build up.

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

• If roof vents or louvered plenums are used. they must be equivalent to a 4-in. dampened wall cap in regard to resistance to air flow. prevention of back drafts. and maintenance required to prevent cloggting.

SEPARATION OF TURNS

For best performance. separate all turns by at least 4 ft. of straight duct. including distance between last turn and exhaust hood.

TURNS OTHER THAN

• One turn of 450 or less may be ignored.

• Two 450 turns should be treated as one 90 ° turn.

• Each turn over 45 o should be treated as one 900 turn.

SEALING OFJOINTS

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

• Do not assemble the ductwork with fasteners that extend into the duct.

They will serve as a collection point fbr lint.

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

• Horizontal runs should slope down toward tile outdoors 1/2 inch per foot

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

USING FLEXIBLE METAL DUCTS

If rigid allmmtal duct cannot be used. then flexible allmmtal ducting can be used. but it will reduce the maxinmnl recotmnended duct length. In special installations when it is impossible to use only metal ducting. then ULdisted clothes dryer flexible metal transition duct may be used as transition venting between the dryer and wall connection only. The use of this ducting will affect dry time.

If flexible transition duct is necessary. the following directions must be followed.

• Use the Shortest Length Possible.

• Stretch the Duct to Its Maxinmm Length to avoid kinks.

• Do Not Crush or Collapse the Duct.

• Never Use Transition Duct Inside the Wall or

Inside the Dryer.

• Avoid Resting the Duct on Sharp Objects.
