Question after converting natural gas dryer to propane. What's next?

Hello, Just replaced my old propane gas dryer with the whirlpool duet sport (the 8300) only can in elec. or natural gas. brought the conversion kit to convert to propane gas. That part was pretty easy but do I still need to do a pressure test with a manometer??. All gas in house is propane and previous dryer was propane. Can we now connect and use ( I know to check for leaks).. Thanks

Hello bmwssr and Welcome into the Gas Appliances topic.

There is no need that I am aware of to test the gas pressure into the dryer. If all the other propane gas appliances are working correctly, the pressure is fine.

nor is there any need to test nor adjust the gas pressure out of the appliances regulator. Already pre-set by the manufacturer of the appliance regulator.

Once you're sure all steps where taken to make the conversion, tested for leaks and exhaust vent connected, dryer all set and ready to use it.....
