CONNECTING ELECTRIC DRYERS
Special Electrical Requirements for
Mobile or Manufactured Homes
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-
grounding conductor must be run with the circuit
conductors and connected to the equipment-
grounding terminal or lead on the dryer.
Failure to do
so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
The dryer has its own terminal block that must be
connected to a separate 240 VAC, 60-Hertz,
single-phase circuit, fused at 30 amperes (the circuit
must be fused on both sides of the line.)
ELECTRICAL SERVICE FOR THE DRYER SHOULD
BE OF THE MAXIMUM RATE VOLTAGE LISTED ON
THE NAMEPLATE. DO NOT CONNECT DRYER TO
110-, 115-, OR 120-VOLT CIRCUIT. Heating elements
are available for field installation in dryers which are
to be connected to an electrical service of a different
voltage than that listed on the rating plate.
Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire, explosion, or
death.
If branch circuit to dryer is 15 ft. (4.5 m) or less in
length, use UL (Underwriters Laboratories) listed No.-
10 AWG wire (copper wire only), or as required by
local codes. If over 15 ft. (4.50 m), use UL-listed
No.-8
AWG wire (copper wire only), or as required by local
codes. Allow sufficient slack in wiring so dryer can be
moved from its normal location when necessary.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
The power cord (pigtail) connection between wall
receptacle and dryer terminal block IS NOT supplied
with dryer. Type of pigtail and gauge of wire must
conform to local codes and with instructions on the
following pages.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
A 4-wire connection is required for all mobile and
manufactured home installations, as well as all new
construction after January 1, 1996. A 4-wire
connection must be used where local codes do not
permit grounding through the neutral wire.
Failure to
do so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
• Do not modify the plug and internal wire provided with
the dryer.
• If it does not fit the outlet, a proper outlet will need to be
installed by a qualified electrician.
• Any installation in a manufactured or mobile home
must comply with the Manufactured Home
Construction and Safety Standards Title 24 CFR, Part
32-80 or Standard CAN/CSA Z240 MH and local
codes and ordinances.
A 4-wire connection is required for all mobile and
