Mobile Home - Additional Installation Requirements

This dryer is suitable for mobile home installations. The installation must conform to the
Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly the
Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD Part 280).
Mobile home installations require:

Metal exhaust system hardware, which is available for purchase from your dealer.

The opening (such as a nearby window) should be at least twice as large as the dryer
exhaust opening.

Electrical Requirements

It is your responsibility

To contact a qualified electrical installer.

To be sure that the electrical connection is adequate and in conformance with the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-latest edition and all local codes and

The National Electric Code requires a 4-wire power supply connection for homes built
after 1996, dryer circuits involved in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home

A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from: National Fire Protection
Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.

To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 240 volt, 60 Hz., AC only electrical
supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 208 volt electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on
a separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker is recommended. Connect to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in
the neutral or grounding circuit.

Do not use an extension cord.

If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path is adequate.

Electrical Connection

To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type of electrical connection you will
be using and follow the instructions provided for it here.

This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire electrical supply connection. The
neutral ground conductor is permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical supply connection, the
neutral ground conductor must be removed from the external ground connector (green
screw), and secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal
block. When the neutral ground conductor is secured under the neutral terminal (center
or white wire) of the terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral

If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral ground wire to the neutral wire,
see “Optional 3-wire connection” section in “Electrical Connection” section.
