WARNING - Risk of Fire

Clothes dryer installation must be performed by a qualified installer.

Install the clothes dryer according to the manufacturer’s instructions and local codes.

Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic venting materials. If flexible metal (foil type) duct is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers. Flexible venting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed, and trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire.

To reduce the risk of severe injury or death, follow all installation instructions.

WARNING To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:

Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned, washed, soaked, or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They emit vapors that could ignite or explode. Any material that has been in contact with a cleaning solvent or flammable liquids or solids should not be placed in the dryer until all traces of these flammable liquids or solids and their fumes have been removed.

There are many highly flammable items used in homes, such as acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household cleaners, some spot removers, turpentine, waxes, and wax removers

Items containing foam rubber (may be labeled latex foam) or similarly textured rubber- like materials must not be dried on a heat setting. Heated foam rubber materials can, under certain circumstances, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.

WARNING What to do if you smell gas:

Do not try to light any appliance.

Do not turn on the appliance.

Do not touch any electrical switch.

Do not use any phone in your building.

Clear the room, building or area of all occupants.

Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.

Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency, or the gas supplier.
