Why does this machine require 15 amps? That seems like quite a lot for a gas dryer. The companion washer only requires 10 amps. I'm confused

Asked by: Moltj
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. According to our information, the Gas Power Supply requires an absolute minimum of 11.5 Amps, along with a little extra for the gas valve and the lamps and indicator lights. A 15 Amp fuse is the minimum required fuse to be used with this dryer.

What is the hottest temperature the "bulky " setting gets to and for how long does it stay at that temperature? Does it reach 135 degrees?
