Clean the exhaust vent where the dryer lint exited the house. Sweep the ground where your dryer was placed, eliminating all loose lint, dust and debris in the area. Scrub the floor with a brush and soapy water to remove any debris stuck into the ground. Allow the floor dry completely.
Assess the rating on the socket with the energy requirements for the dryer. Clothes dryers require a 240-volt connection.
Twist the dryer into the socket and slip it into place. Turn the power back on in the breaker box. For a gas dryer, join the flex gas line into the gas supply valve and tighten it.
Put in a fresh exhaust vent hose into the vent by slipping it on the house vent and the dryer’s vent, exiting the house and the dryer. Tighten clamps with a screwdriver. Turn on the dryer to test the connections.
