Gas Supply Requirements

Gas Type

Natural Gas:
This dryer is equipped for use with Natural gas. It is design-certified by CSA International for
LP (propane or butane) gases with appropriate conversion.

Your dryer must have the correct burner for the type of gas in your home. Burner
information is located on the rating plate in the door well of your dryer. If this information
does not agree with the type of gas available, contact your dealer or call the phone
numbers referenced on the front page of this manual.

LP gas conversion:
Conversion must be made by a qualified technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas specified on the model/serial
rating plate for use with a different gas without consulting your gas company.

Gas supply line

Must include



NPT minimum plugged tapping accessible for test gauge connection,

immediately upstream of the gas connection to the dryer. See illustration.

¹⁄₂" IPS pipe is recommended.

Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an extension cord.

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




For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:

This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipment-
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.


Improper connection of the equipment-

grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the
dryer: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.


Explosion Hazard

Use a new CSA International approved gas supply line.

Install a shut-off valve.

Securely tighten all gas connections.

If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 13" (33 cm) water

Examples of a qualified person include:

licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.

Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
