WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Do not, under any circumstances, cut or
remove the ground prong from the power cord.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the
dryer, the electrical power cord must be
plugged into a properly grounded outlet.
• For personal safety, this dryer must be properly
grounded. Failure to do so can result in
electrical shock or injury.
• Refer to the installation instructions in this
manual for specific electrical requirements for
your model. Failure to follow these instructions
can create an electrical shock hazard and/or a
fire hazard.
• This dryer must be plugged into a properly
grounded outlet. Electrical shock can result if
the dryer is not properly grounded. Have the
wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. Failure to follow these instructions
can create an electrical shock hazard and/or a
fire hazard.
• The dryer should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a
voltage rating that matches the rating plate.
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits
which could cause a fire hazard from
overheated wires.
• Never unplug your dryer by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet. The power cord can
be damaged, resulting in a risk of fire and
electrical shock.
• Repair or replace immediately all power cords
that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks
or abrasion damage along its length or at either
end. The power cord can melt, creating
electrical shock and/or fire hazard.
• When installing or moving the dryer, be careful
not to pinch, crush, or damage the power cord.
This will prevent injury and prevent damage to
the dryer from fire and electrical shock.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
This act requires the governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause
cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm and requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde, and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP
fuels.
Properly adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be
minimized further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.
