Description / Abstract:

This Standard covers electrically operated household clothes dryers and specifies two separate energy performance test methods. The first procedure relies on operator intervention to manually end the test; the second procedure relies on the dryer’s automated termination control. This Standard also specifies minimum energy efficiency levels.

This Standard applies to electrically operated household tumble-type clothes dryers, compact and standard, designed for a 60 Hz ac supply with a nominal system voltage of 120, 120/240, or 120/208 V.

This Standard does not cover gas clothes dryers. Note: For requirements for gas clothes dryers, see CSA P.5.

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, that is, a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
