Install exhaust hood and use caulking compound to seal

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.
