Water Testing, Softening Salt, & Cleaning Solution Installation
The Hydrim is equipped with a built-in water softening system, which needs to be adjusted according to
local water hardness. The Hydrim water test kit (part #01-108305S) includes 3 water hardness test strips in
bags. Take a water sample from the location where the machine will be installed. Open one of the bags and
remove the test strip. Dip the strip in the water. Compare the color on the strip with the chart on the back of
the bag. Determine the water hardness according to the chart on the water test kit envelope. Adjust the water
hardness dial accordingly.

Backflow Protection
Description
Hydrim C51W has a built in air gap system to prevent backflow in the sewage system according to the
International Plumbing Code, section 409.2. The water first flows from the filling valve over an open flow
section (air gap, shown in figure below) into the water softening system and then to the chamber thus to
prevent any possible cross-connection between the washer and the sewage system. Step by step filling
system of the Hydrim C51w is explained below.
Operation
Open flow section (Air gap)
Water to
chamber
Water from
filling valve
2
1. Water enters into the washer from water system through filling valve.
2. Then it flows into the air gap system with open flow section to prevent backflow. Water enters from first
section of open flow section to another section in form of jet. Open flow section length is approximately
20mm. The water pressure must be at least 0.3 bars (4.4 psi) to flow over the open flow section.
3. From the open flow section the water enters into the softening system then into the chamber.
From the above it is clear that the Hydrim C51W filling system is safe and meets the International Plumbing
Code requirements.

Sequence of Operation with Dryer
Regular & Heavy Duty Wash Cycles
The door must be closed for unit to turn on. There is a mechanical lockout between the door open button and
power button. If the door is not closed properly the power button cannot be depressed. When the power
button is depressed the power light comes on. No pumps should be running at this time. If there is no
cleaning solution in the unit the low solution light will flash. Pressing either the regular or heavy-duty cycle
button, top button regular wash approx. 18 minutes plus dry, middle button heavy-duty wash approx. 22
minutes plus dry. Cycle times depend on the temperature of the incoming water. At the start of every cycle
the drain pump runs for approximately 10 seconds. This will remove any standing water in the manifold.
When the drain pump shuts off the manifold and chamber will fill with cold water. Water flows from the
cold water inlet solenoid through the anti-siphon waste stack to the water-softening reservoir and into the
manifold. When the chamber full pressure switch activates the cold-water solenoid closes and the dosing
pump runs for 3 seconds to add cleaning solution to the Prewash. The recirculation pumps run for 2 minutes
to rinse the instruments. The unit is then drained and refilled with hot water. When the chamber full pressure
switch activates the hot water solenoid shuts off and the dosing pump runs for 11 seconds. The recirculation
pumps will then start running and when the water reaches the correct temperature 55°C/131°F the dosing
pump will run for 12 seconds. The unit will then wash the instruments for 5 minutes for a regular cycle or 9
minutes for a heavy-duty cycle. When the wash time is complete the unit drains then fills with hot water. The
recirculation pumps run for 1 minute. The unit then drains and refills with hot water again and the dosing
pump runs for 7 seconds. The recirculation pumps turn on and when the water temperature reaches
60°C/140°F they continue running for 1 minute. The unit will then drain and the air dryer will turn on.
Rinse and Hold
Close the door and turn the power on. Press the rinse and hold button. If there is no cleaning solution in the
unit the low solution light will flash. The drain pump runs for approximately 10 seconds. The cold-water
solenoid will then open and fill the chamber with cold water. When the full pressure switch activates the
cold-water solenoid shuts off and the recirculation pumps turn on for 3 minutes. The unit will then drain and
refill with hot water. The dosing pump runs for 3 seconds. The recirculation pumps will turn on and when the
water temperature reaches 50°C/122° they continue running for 1 minute. The unit will then drain and the
cycle complete light will come on.

Dosing Reservoir (Serial #HxxxDFxxxx & Older)
When the cleaning solution light starts flashing this is an indication that the cleaning solution bottle is empty.
When the bottle is not empty check to make sure the bottle vent cap is loose. If the light still flashes, there
may be a problem with the dosing reservoir. Disconnect the blue and yellow wires from the sensor, at the
terminal block. Install a jumper wire where the wires were connected. If the solution light continues to flash
you have a problem with the control module. If the solution light turns OFF when the jumper wire is
installed the problem is with the dosing reservoir. Remove the 4 screws holding the sensor to the reservoir
and remove the float from inside the hole. Connect an ohmmeter to the blue and yellow wires and touch the
float to the bottom of the sensor. Your meter should read less than 1 ohm. If the reading is bad order a new
dosing reservoir upgrade kit (part #01-109058S), if the reading is good replace the float (part #01-108351S)
and flush the main block of the dosing reservoir.

Hydrim C51 with Dryer Location & Air Flow
Drying is added at the end of the cycle and will start automatically. Drying time is factory set at 10 minutes,
and can be adjusted from 0 to 20 minutes.
The non-return feature is built in the air inlet where two pivoted flaps keep the air entry point closed all the
time. When the blower is turned ON, the air pressure opens the flaps allowing the air to flow in.
The angle of opening and the flap position and orientation direct the airflow so it covers the entire chamber,
for even drying in all areas.

Removing Water from the Hydrim C51w Prior to Servicing
When conducting service or repairs on the Hydrim C51w, the unit will need to be turned upside down. Prior
to doing this, water should be removed from the unit as follows:
Use a syringe and some flexible tubing to suck the water out from the area under the filters.
Remove the salt container. Use the same procedure as above to remove the water from the salt reservoir.
Remove a cap from a Hydrim cleaning solution bottle and attach it to the quick connect fitting.
Use a syringe to suction the cleaning solution from the dosing reservoir.
This should remove most of the water that is in the unit.
Note: Central suction may be used in place of a syringe if available.
