What is the maximum vent length for my Kenmore dryer?

I have a Kenmore dryer model number 110.6180200. I need to know the manufacturer's allowable dryer vent distance from the dryer to the outside vent. This information is for the county electrical inspector.

The maximum length depends on the type of ducting material used. Here is a chart of maximum lengths:

For 4" exhaust hoods and 4" diameter rigid heavy metal vent:

# of 90 degree turns Maximum length

0 ------------------------ 64 ft.

1 ------------------------ 54 ft.

2 ------------------------ 44 ft.

3 ------------------------ 35 ft.

4 ------------------------ 27 ft.

For 4" exhaust hoods and 4" diameter flexible heavy metal vent:

0 ------------------------ 36 ft.

1 ------------------------ 31 ft.

2 ------------------------ 27 ft.

3 ------------------------ 25 ft.

4 ------------------------ 23 ft.

NOTE: If a combination of rigid and flexible vent is used, use the maximum length for the flexible vent.

For 2 1/2" exhaust hoods with rigid heavy metal vent:

0 ------------------------ 58 ft.

1 ------------------------ 48 ft.

2 ------------------------ 38 ft.

3 ------------------------ 29 ft.

4 ------------------------ 21 ft.

For 2 1/2" exhaust hoods with flexible heavy metal vent:

0 ------------------------ 28 ft.

1 ------------------------ 23 ft.

2 ------------------------ 19 ft.

3 ------------------------ 17 ft.

4 ------------------------ 15 ft.
