Safety Information
Explanation of Safety Messages
Precautionary statements (“DANGER,” “WARNING,”
and “CAUTION”), followed by specific instructions,
are found in this manual and on machine decals. These
precautions are intended for the personal safety of the
operator, user, servicer, and those maintaining the
machine.
Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock,
serious injury or death to persons when
using your washer, follow these basic
precautions:
W023
DANGER
1. Read all instructions before using the washer.
DANGER indicates the presence of a
hazard that will cause severe personal
injury, death, or substantial property
damage if the danger is ignored.
WARNING
WARNING indicates the presence of a
hazard that can cause severe personal
injury, death, or substantial property
damage if the warning is ignored.
CAUTION
CAUTION indicates the presence of a
hazard that will or can cause minor
personal injury or property damage if the
caution is ignored.
Additional precautionary statements (“IMPORTANT”
and “NOTE”) are followed by specific instructions.
IMPORTANT: The word “IMPORTANT” is used
to inform the reader of specific procedures where
minor machine damage will occur if the procedure
is not followed.
NOTE: The word “NOTE” is used to communicate
installation, operation, maintenance or servicing
information that is important but not hazard
related.
2. Refer to the GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS in
the INSTALLATION manual for the proper
grounding of the washer.
3. Do not wash textiles that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, kerosene, waxes, cooking oils, drycleaning solvents, or other flammable or
explosive substances as they give off vapors that
could ignite or explode.
4. Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or
other flammable or explosive substances to the
wash water. These substances give off vapors that
could ignite or explode.
5. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be
produced in a hot water system that has not been
used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS
IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not
been used for such a period, before using a
washing machine or combination washer-dryer,
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water
flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen gas. The gas
is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame
during this time.
6. Do not allow children to play on or in the washer.
Close supervision of children is necessary when
the washer is used near children. This is a safety

SW012
To ensure the safety of machine operators, the
following maintenance checks must be performed
daily:
Safe operation requires an appropriate operating
environment for both the operator and the machine. If
questions regarding safety arise, contact the
manufacturer immediately.
Environmental Conditions
●
Temperatures above 120°F (50°C) will result in
more frequent motor overheating and, in some
cases, malfunction or premature damage to solid
state devices that are used in some models.
Special cooling devices may be necessary.
1. Prior to operating the machine, verify that all
warning signs are present and legible. Missing or
illegible signs must be replaced immediately.
Make certain that spares are available.
Water pressure switches are affected by increases
and decreases in temperature. Every 25°F (10°C)
change in temperature will have a 1% effect on
the water level.
2. Check door interlock before starting operation of
the machine:
a. Attempt to start the machine with the door
open. The machine should not start with the
door open.
●
b. Close the door without locking it and attempt
to start the machine. The machine should not
start with the door unlocked.
If the door lock and interlock are not functioning
properly, call a service technician.
●
Ventilation. The need for make-up air openings
for such laundry room accessories as dryers,
ironers, water heaters, etc., must be evaluated
periodically. Louvers, screens, or other
separating devices may reduce the available air
opening significantly.
●
Radio Frequency Emissions. A filter is available
for machines in installations where floor space is
shared with equipment sensitive to radio
frequency emissions.
●

system. Operating the machine with
severe out-of-balance loads could result
in personal injury and serious equipment
damage.
Humidity. Relative humidity above 90% may
cause the machine’s electronics or motors to
malfunction or may trip the ground fault
interrupter. Corrosion problems may occur on
some metal components in the machine.
If the relative humidity is below 30%, belts and
rubber hoses may eventually develop dry rot.
This condition can result in hose leaks, which
may cause safety hazards external to the machine
in conjunction with adjacent electrical
equipment.
c. Close and lock the door and start a cycle.
Attempt to open the door while the cycle is in
progress. The door should not open.
3. Do not attempt to operate the machine if any of

pressure higher than 125 psi (8.5 bar) may result
in damage to steam components and may cause
personal injury.
Water Damage. Do not spray the machine with
water. Short circuiting and serious damage may
result. Repair immediately all seepage due to
worn or damaged gaskets, etc.
For machines equipped with optional steam heat,
install piping in accordance with approved
commercial steam practices. Failure to install the
supplied steam filter may void the warranty.
Machine Location
●
●
Foundation. The concrete floor must be of
sufficient strength and thickness to handle the
floor loads generated by the high extract speeds
of the machine.
●
Drainage System. Provide drain lines or troughs
large enough to accommodate the total number of
gallons that could be dumped if all machines on
the site drained at the same time from the highest
attainable level. If troughs are used, they should
be covered to support light foot traffic.
●
Power. For personal safety and for proper
operation, the machine must be grounded in
accordance with state and local codes. The
ground connection must be to a proven earth
ground, not to conduit or water pipes. Do not use
fuses in place of the circuit breaker. An easyaccess cutoff switch should also be provided.

Installation
This manual is designed as a guide to the installation
and maintenance of the UW35 and UW60 3-speed
rigid-mount washer-extractor.
Water enters the machine through electromechanical
water valves. Vacuum breakers are installed in the
water-inlet plumbing to prevent backflow of water.
NOTE: All information, illustrations, and
specifications contained in this manual are based
on the latest product information available at the
time of printing. We reserve the right to make
changes at any time without notice.
A motorized drain valve holds water in the machine
during the wash, soak, and rinse steps. The drain valve
is normally open, which means that it closes only
when power is applied, thus allowing the machine to
drain in the event of a power failure.
Machine Overview
The design of the washer-extractor emphasizes
performance reliability and long service life. The
cylinder, shell, and main body panels are fabricated of
stainless steel. The washer-extractor is mounted on a
welded base frame which supports the bearings,
cylinder, and shell.
Electrical controls for the washer-extractor are housed
in a separate enclosure located on the top of the
machine. The controls are accessed by removing the
top cover from the control module.
One single-speed and one dual-speed motor drive the
cylinder. The cylinder is supported via the shaft by two
bearings. The UW35 uses two ball bearings held in
place by a single cast iron housing that is bolted to the
A-frame. The UW60 uses two flange-mounted,
spherical roller bearings bolted to the A-frame.
On the UW60, a balance switch is installed between
the faces of the A-frame to signal the controls to slow
the machine when a severely out-of-balance load
occurs during extract.
The cylinder is constructed with lifters or ribs that lift
the laundry from the bath solution when the cylinder
rotates at slow speed and then allow the laundry to
tumble back into the bath. This mechanical action
accomplishes the washing function. The cylinder is
perforated, allowing the water to drain from within
during the wash and extract steps.
The spray rinse feature consists of a fiber-reinforced
clear hose connected to the center of the door glass and
to both a hot and cold water inlet valve. A
hemispherically-shaped spray nozzle inside the door
glass produces a fan-action water spray which
disperses rinse water throughout the load.
F232086
A door-lock system prevents opening of the stainless
steel door when a cycle is in progress. It also prevents
operation of the machine when the door is open. The
doorbox contains the door-lock microswitch, doorclosed magnetic switch, and the door unlock solenoid.
The UW35 shaft seal assembly includes two lip seals
integrated into the cast-iron bearing housing. Each seal
has two lips which make contact with a stainless steel
bushing mounted to the shaft.
The UW60 shaft seal assembly includes a brass collar
held in place on the cylinder shaft with set screws. The
collar has a flange with a ceramic ring which makes
contact with a spring-loaded phenolic face seal
enclosed in a nylon housing mounted on the rear of the
shell. The collar contains two internal O rings which
maintain contact with the cylinder shaft.
The polypropylene supply dispenser is mounted on the
right side of the washer-extractor, viewed from the
front. The dispenser has five supply compartments,
numbered 1 – 5, starting from the rear of the machine.
The compartments hold plastic supply cups that are
used for either liquid or dry supplies. A nozzle flushes
supplies from the cups with water for the time
programmed in the cycle.
Liquid supplies can be injected directly into the cups
by a customer-supplied external chemical supply
system. Five hose strain reliefs on top of the supply
dispenser facilitate connection to an external supply
system. A terminal strip inside a compartment
attached to the left side of the control module, viewed
from the rear of the washer-extractor, provides
connection points for external supply signals.

Machine Foundation
A proper foundation is absolutely necessary for UW 3speed washer-extractors because of the high extract
speed and the G-forces exerted.
Static and dynamic loads on the floor or foundation are
shown in the table below. This table can be used as a
reference when designing floors and foundations.
UW 3-Speed Pocket Hardmount
Floor Load Data
Do not mount on wooden floors, above ground level,
or over basements. Installation must be “slab on
grade” or equal.
Thoroughness of detail must be stressed with all
foundation work to ensure a stable unit installation,
eliminating possibilities of excessive vibration during
extract.

supported and rests on the mounting surface. (Do not
support the washer-extractor on only four points.)
Table 2
A concrete base designed to elevate the washerextractor to a comfortable and more accessible height
for loading and unloading laundry may be used. Care
must be exercised in the design of such a base due to
the force exerted by the machine during extract. This
base must be adequately tied in to the existing floor.

Mounting Bolt Installation
A bolt kit is available as an option. The UW35 uses 5/
8-11 x 6 inch bolts; the UW60 uses 3/4-10 x 8 inch
bolts. The bolts should be embedded in a 3500 psi
minimum reinforced concrete floor that is a minimum
of 6 inches thick. For mounting bolt layouts for both
machines, see Figures 4 and 5. (The front of the
washer-extractor is the bottom of the diagram.)
A bolt-locator fixture or rebar frame is available as an
option. This rigid welded assembly made of
reinforcing rod and mounting bolts is designed to be
embedded in concrete. See Figure 7.

hole approximately 5 feet square through the existing
floor. Excavate to a depth of 6 inches from the top of
the existing floor. Produce a pyramid-shaped hole by
excavating the bottom of the hole to a width 6 inches
wider on each side than the width of the top of the
hole. Fill with 6 inches of reinforced concrete. Embed
the mounting bolts or base frame as the concrete is
poured. Ensure that the bolt threads extend 2 inches

7. Before grout sets completely, make a drain
opening in the rear of the washer-extractor
grouting with a stiff piece of wire. This opening
should be approximately 1/2 inch (13 mm) wide
to allow any surface water build-up under the
base of the machine to drain away. Do not omit
this step.
8. Position the mounting bolt washers and locknuts
on the anchor bolts and fingertighten locknuts to
machine base.
9. After the grout is completely dry, tighten the
locknuts by even increments–one after the other–
until all are tightened evenly and the washerextractor is fastened securely to the floor.
NOTE: Check and retighten the locknuts after five
to ten days of operation and every month
thereafter.

Drain Connection Requirements
A drain system of adequate capacity is essential to
washer-extractor performance. Ideally, the water
should empty through a vented pipe directly into a
sump or floor drain. Figure 10 and Figure 11 show
drain line and drain trough configurations.
1 ft.
(30.48 cm)
If proper drain size is not available or practical, a surge
tank is required. A surge tank in conjunction with a
sump pump should be used when gravity drainage is
not possible, such as in below-ground-level
installations.
Before any deviation from specified installation
procedures is attempted, the customer or installer
should contact the distributor.
Increasing the drain hose length, installing elbows, or
causing bends will decrease drain flow rate and
increase drain times, impairing washer-extractor
performance.

WARNING
Wear eye and hand protection when
handling chemicals; always avoid direct
contact with raw chemicals. Read the
manufacturer’s directions for accidental
contact before handling chemicals.
Ensure an eye-rinse facility and an
emergency shower are within easy reach.
Check at regular intervals for chemical
leaks.
Undiluted chemical dripping can damage the washerextractor. Therefore, all chemical supply dispenser
pumps should be mounted below the washer’s
injection point. All dispenser tubing should also run
below the injection point. Loops do not prevent drips
if these instructions are not followed. Failure to follow

On models with “design 5”, the terminal strip which
furnishes the supply output signal is located inside the
control module at the rear. Access is through the rear
panel of the control module.
Attempting to obtain 110VAC by using L1
or L2 with the common may damage
laundry machine circuitry and/or the
chemical injection system. Using a
240VAC power wire in the washerextractor and an earth ground to obtain
110VAC could cause microprocessor
problems.
F10A MAX NEUTRAL TO SPLY 1 THRU SPLY 5 YIELDS 120VAC
Terminals SUPPLY 1 through SUPPLY 5 provide
120VAC or 240VAC fused at 500mA. (Refer to the
decal at the external supply terminal strip to determine
whether the washer-extractor provides 120VAC or
240VAC, as well as other pertinent information.)
These terminals may be used to provide signals to the
chemical injection supply system but must not be used
to provide power to the actual pump. Do not attempt to
increase fuse rating as this may cause damage to the
washer-extractor’s circuitry.

Maintenance
Care of Stainless Steel
●
If the stainless steel appears to be rusting, the
source of the rust may actually be an iron or steel
part not made of stainless steel, such as a nail or
screw. One remedy is to paint all carbon steel
parts with a heavy protective coating. Stainless
steel fasteners should be used whenever possible.
●
Discolorations or heat tint from overheating may
be removed by scouring with a powder or by
employing special chemical solutions.
●
Sanitizers or sterilizing solutions should not be
left in stainless steel equipment for prolonged
periods of time. They often contain chlorine,
which may cause corrosion. The stainless steel
should be cleaned and rinsed thoroughly of any
solution containing chlorine.
●
When an external chemical supply system is
used, make certain that no siphoning of
chemicals occurs when the washer-extractor is
not in use. Highly concentrated chemicals can
cause severe damage to stainless steel and other
components within the washer-extractor. Damage
of this kind is not covered by the manufacturer’s
warranty. Locate the pump below the washerextractor’s injection point to prevent siphoning of
chemicals into the washer-extractor. See
Figure 15 in the Installation section.
Maintain the natural beauty of stainless steel and
prolong its service life by following these tips:
●
Ordinary deposits of dirt and grease can be
removed with detergent and water. The metal
should be thoroughly rinsed and dried after
washing. Periodic cleaning will help to maintain
the bright surface appearance and prevent
corrosion.
●
Contact with dissimilar metals should be avoided
whenever possible. This will help prevent
galvanic corrosion when salty or acidic solutions
are present.
●
Salty or acidic solutions should not be allowed to
evaporate and dry on stainless steel. They may
cause corrosion. Ensure that the stainless steel is
wiped clean of acidic solution residues.
●
40
Deposits that adhere to the stainless steel should
be removed, especially from crevices and
corners. When using abrasive cleaners, always
rub in the direction of the polish lines or “grain”
of the stainless steel to avoid scratch marks.
Never use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes on
the stainless steel. Use stainless steel wool or soft
non-metal bristle brushes.
