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
1. Read all instructions before using the washer.
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
rule for all appliances.
7. Before the washer is removed from service or
discarded, remove the door to the washing
compartment.
8. Do not reach into the washer if the wash drum is
moving.

properly, call a service technician.
3. Do not attempt to operate the machine if any of
the following conditions are present:
a. The door does not remain securely locked
during the entire cycle.
b. Excessively high water level is evident.
c. Machine is not connected to a properly
grounded circuit.
Do not bypass any safety devices in the machine.
WARNING
Never operate the machine with a
bypassed or disconnected balance
system. Operating the machine with
severe out-of-balance loads could result
in personal injury and serious equipment
damage.
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
• Ambient Temperature. Water in the machine will
freeze at temperatures of 32°F (0°C) or below.
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.
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.
• 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.
• 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.
• Elevation. If the machine is to be operated at
elevations of over 3280 feet (1000 m) above sea
level, pay special attention to water levels and
electronic settings (particularly temperature) or
desired results may not be achieved.
• Chemicals. Keep stainless steel surfaces free of
chemical residues.

reducers, carbon tetrachloride, gasoline,
benzene, naptha, etc. Doing so could
result in serious personal injury and/or
damage to the machine.
SW002
• 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.
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. Refer to Installation manual.
• Service/Maintenance Space. Provide sufficient
space to allow comfortable performance of
service procedures and routine preventive
maintenance.
Consult installation instructions for specific details.
CAUTION
Replace all panels that are removed to
perform service and maintenance
procedures. Do not operate the machine
with missing guards or with broken or
missing parts. Do not bypass any safety
devices.
SW019
• Water Pressure. Best performance will be
realized if water is provided at a pressure of 30 –
85 psi (2.0 – 5.7 bar). Although the machine will
function properly at lower pressure, increased fill
times will occur. Water pressure higher than 100
psi (6.7 bar) may result in damage to machine
plumbing. Component failure(s) and personal
injury could result.
• Steam Heat (Optional) Pressure. Best
performance will be realized if steam is provided
at a pressure of 30 – 80 psi (2.0 – 5.4 bar). Steam
pressure higher than 125 psi (8.5 bar) may result
in damage to steam components and may cause
personal injury.
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.
• 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.
WARNING
Ensure that a ground wire from a proven
earth ground is connected to the ground
lug near the input power block on this
machine. Without proper grounding,
personal injury from electric shock could
occur and machine malfunctions may be
evident.
SW008
Always disconnect power and water supplies before a
service technician performs any service procedure.

Safety Information
AC Inverter Drive
Machines equipped with the AC inverter drive require
special attention with regard to the operating
environment.
• An especially dusty or linty environment will
require more frequent cleaning of the AC inverter
drive cooling fan filter and of the AC inverter
drive itself.
This manual is designed as a guide to operating and
maintaining the Pocket Hardmount washer-extractor
equipped with the AC inverter drive.
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.
• Power line fluctuations from sources such as
uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can
adversely affect machines equipped with the AC
inverter drive. Proper suppression devices should
be utilized on the incoming power to the machine
to avoid problems.
• A clean power supply free from voltage spikes
and surges is absolutely essential for machines
equipped with the AC inverter drive. Nonlinear
inconsistencies (peaks and valleys) in the power
supply can cause the AC inverter drive to
generate nuisance errors.
If voltage is above 240 Volt for 200 Volt
installation, ask the power company to correct.
As an alternative, a step-down transformer kit is
available from the distributor. If voltage is above
480 Volt for 400 Volt installations, a buckboost
transformer is required.
• Sufficient space to perform service procedures
and routine preventive maintenance is especially
important for machines equipped with the AC
inverter drive.

Operation
Theory of Operation
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.
Electrical controls for the washer-extractor are housed
in a separate enclosure located on the top of the
machine. Removing the screws from the module
cover, lifting the cover, and pulling to the rear
provides access to the control module. This module
contains the WE-6 control, contactors, water-level
switch, and other control components.
The cylinder is driven by a V-drive system supported
via the shaft by two flange-mounted spherical roller
bearings bolted to the A-frame.
The cylinder is constructed with four 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.
All UWPV washer-extractors use an AC inverter drive
control which provides seven preset motor speeds
using a single motor. The AC drive interface board
converts motor logic from the WE-6 control to the
correct signals for the AC inverter drive. In addition,
all logic inputs to the control are routed through this
board.
The operator can select from among 39 preprogrammed
cycles. Cycle 39 is a test cycle used to verify proper
operation of the washer-extractor. With the exception
of Cycle 01, the remaining cycles are complete wash
cycles or specialty cycles designed to handle various
fabrics at specific water temperatures and levels.
Cycle 01 is designed to test an external chemical
injection supply system.
Programmable custom cycles are another feature of
the UWPV.
The vibration switch system utilizes a micro-switch
mounted between the faces of the A-frame to signal
the WE-6 control that the load imbalance is too great
for high extract speeds. Depending on the design
series, the vibration switch will perform in either of
two ways. If the washer-extractor utilizes ONLY the
F232201
vibration switch to detect an out-of-balance load, the
switch will signal the WE-6 control to slow the motor
speed, allowing the load to re-distribute, and then
resume the spin speed programmed. The control will
attempt to redistribute the load in this manner up to
three times. On the third attempt, if an imbalance
condition is still detected, the control will abort the
spin speed step(s) and advance to the next non-spin
speed step.
However, if the washer-extractor is equipped with
BOTH the vibration switch and the AC inverter drive
balance detection systems, the function of the switch is
slightly different. The inverter drive will monitor load
imbalance conditions and the control. If the load is not
balanced to spin at the programmed spin speed,
control will attempt to re-distribute the load. After
three unsuccessful attempts to balance the load,
control will limit the spin speed (on models with the
WE-6 Firmware ID Code of “ARWCxx” the WE-6
display will alternately flash the programmed spin
speed and the substituted spin speed). During the spin
step, if the vibration switch detects a severe imbalance,
due to improper installation or improper loading of the
washer, the control will abort the remaining portion of
the cycle and stop the machine. The display will flash
“BAL/DR” while aborting the cycle until the door has
been opened.
Water enters the washer-extractor through
electromechanical water valves controlled by the
microcomputer. The microcomputer also controls the
drain and the door lock. In addition, it selects the water
levels according to the programmed cycle. Vacuum
breakers are installed in the water-inlet plumbing to
prevent backflow of water.
The standard production UW35PV and UW60PV use
a single drain valve. (Dual drains are available as an
option.) The UW80PV, UW100PV, UW125PV and
UW150PV use dual drain valves. The dual drains open
and close together under control of the WE-6 control.
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.
A door-lock system prevents opening of the stainless
steel door when a cycle is in progress. It also prevents
operation of the washer-extractor when the door is
open. The door box contains the door-lock
microswitch, door-closed magnetic switch, and the
door-unlock solenoid.
On later design models equipped with a rotation
sensor, the door lock system will allow door to unlock
soon after basket stops at the end of the cycle.

Operation
The shaft seal assembly includes a collar held in place
on the cylinder shaft with setscrews. The collar has a
flange with a ceramic ring which makes contact with a
spring-loaded face seal enclosed in a housing. 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.
LED Display
The WE-6 control has a six-digit LED display.
References to display indications pertain to the first
four digits of the display reading left to right. The last
two digits on the right side of the display will indicate
either the last cycle used or the current cycle in
progress. Refer to Figure 5.

Table 1 lists the various displays and their
descriptions.
Drain Steps
Models that display WE-6 Firmware ID Code
“ARWCO1” and later or “HRWC18” and later (i.e.
“HRWC19”) after power up have two additional drain
steps called “WASH DRAIN” and “Drain 5.” The
steps provide a potential reduction in total cycle time
because steps are shorter.
“WASH DRAIN” is used for draining to the sewer
(“main” drain [drain 1]) when a spin step does not
follow a “WASH DRAIN.” Any other steps (for
example, fill step) may be programmed after a
“WASH DRAIN” step.

below the door. Impact with door edges
can cause personal injury.
SW025
NOTE: When washing items which may
disintegrate or fragment, such as mop heads or
sponges, use laundry nets to prevent drain
blockage.
IMPORTANT: To prevent out-of-balance
conditions, premature wear or damage to machine
when using laundry nets, use several small nets in a
load.
7. When loading is complete, ensure that all fabric
is inside the basket. Then close and lock the door.
8. Add dry supplies are placed in the supply dispenser
compartment cups prior to the start of each cycle.
Liquid supplies can be injected directly into the supply
dispenser by an external chemical supply system.
NOTE: Supply dispenser compartment cups must
not be removed when an external chemical
injection supply system is attached to the washerextractor.

numbers must be two-digit numbers from
01 to 39.
NOTE: Press keypads at their centers just hard
enough to activate them.
Press the numbers desired on the keyboard and note
that these numbers are displayed after “NEXT.”
When keypads are pressed on the keyboard, a signal
will be heard. If an error is made, press the numbers
again. As numbers are entered, they move from right
to left on the display.
As the cycle proceeds, the display will show the
function being executed, the step number, and the
cycle number selected. Pressing the Edit Cycle keypad
while the cycle is running will cause the display to
show the remaining cycle time in minutes. Pressing
this keypad again will return the display to normal.
To begin the cycle at any step other than the first step,
press the Advance keypad to advance through the
cycle to the desired starting point. (The Advance
keypad is enabled at the factory and can be disabled at
the laundry site.) Then press the Start keypad.
It is possible to skip to the next step in a cycle, with the
exception of a drain step: drain steps must be allowed
time to complete.
When the display shows the step desired to begin the
cycle, press the Start keypad.
If the door is not locked, the display will indicate
“CLOSE” and “DOOR.” If this occurs, be sure the door
is closed and locked and press the Start keypad again.

technician.
As water fills the washer-extractor, one or more of the
indicator lights located to the left of the keyboard will
come on and stay on until the required water level is
reached. LED dots located in the upper left corner of
the last three digits on the right of the display will
illuminate to indicate the water level(s) reached:
• When the indicator dot in the last digit on the
right is lit, the low water level has been reached.
• When the dot in the next-to-the-last digit is lit,
medium water level (optional) has been reached.
• When the dot over the third digit from the right
has been lit, high level has been reached.
11. The cycle will continue until its completion.
Then the display will read “DONE.”
10. To start the selected cycle, press the Start keypad.
If the selected cycle number is not in the control
memory, the display will show “NCYC.” If this
happens, select another cycle. Otherwise, the
display will now show the first step. For

Operation
Stop Routine
WARNING
NEVER insert hands or objects into basket
until it has completely stopped. Doing so
could result in serious injury.
SW012
The operator can select the agitation which will be in
effect for the STOP routine “shakeout.” To minimize
cycle time, if rotation has stopped, the control
shakeout time is brief. This will help prevent tangling
of the load and provide maximum control. Three
agitations are available for the STOP routine. They are
as follows:
Wash 1
• 12 seconds forward
The display will read “W1-cc,” “W2-cc,” or “W3-cc”
for Wash 1, Wash 2, or Wash 3 action during the
shakeout portion of the stop routine until the final
10 seconds. (The “cc” here stands for the current cycle
number and will be represented by numbers in the
actual display.) During the final seconds, the display
reads “STOPcc.” The display will then read
“DONEcc.” At that point, the door can be opened. If
rotation is sensed, control does not allow door to open.
In stop routine, the coast time ensures a minimum time
for coast. After the minimum, the control determines if
rotation sensor is working, then a short shake-out
routine begins when cylinder rotation stops. At the end
of shake-out routine, “STOPxx” displays briefly, then
displays “donExx”, if there is no rotation. If rotation is
sensed, control does NOT show “donE” and prevents
door from being opened. When no rotation is sensed,
door can be opened.
NOTE: If control detects that rotation sensor is not
working upon entering the stop routine, all stop
procedure times default to maximum values. Refer
to Programming manual for additional
information.
• 3 seconds pause
• 12 seconds reverse
• 3 seconds pause
Wash 2
• 3 seconds forward
• 27 seconds pause
• 3 seconds reverse
• 27 seconds pause
Wash 3
• no rotation
To select the agitation in the stop routine, program a
Wash 1, 2, or 3 step for 1 second. The washerextractor will begin refilling to the most recent water
level if the time is more than 1 second. If the most
recent wash type was Wash 4, 6, or 7, the WE-6 will
default to no agitation (Wash 3) during the stop
routine.
NOTE: If the desired action is not programmed in
the final cycle step, the control will default to the
most recent action in the cycle. If the cycle stops
prematurely, the most recent action at the time the
cycle is interrupted will be in effect during the stop
routine.

Operation
Error Recovery Routine
When the control detects an error, it will stop running
the current step and display a message to indicate what
type of error was found:
• “FILL” indicates that the washer-extractor did
not fill within the allotted time.
• “EMTY” indicates that the washer-extractor did
not drain in the allotted time.
• “TEMP” indicates that the temperature sensor
has recognized a temperature above the
programmed value.
• “MEMR” indicates that the control has detected a
problem with the cycle information. The cycle
must be edited.
Certain error conditions are considered to be nonrecoverable:
• If the door opens during a cycle, the control will
display “DOOR.” The operator must close the
door.
Then, after the control has detected that the door
is closed, it will automatically abort the cycle and
go to the normal stop routine.
• “OVERHT” will be displayed when the control
detects an open or shorted temperature input
circuit or temperatures are outside of the washerextractor’s allowable limits. Contact a service
technician.
• “WATER” indicates that the WE-6 control
senses low, medium, or high water level at the
end of the stop routine.
• “DRTEMP” indicates that the WE-6 has detected
water temperature over 160°F in a “drain to
reuse” step. Instead of draining to a tank, the
control gives this error message. The cycle must
be edited so the temperature is below 160°F upon
entering a reuse drain step (“Da” or “Db”).
All outputs remain off while the message
displays, and the door cannot be unlocked.
NOTE: The WE-6 control will not allow the door to
be opened while there is water in the washerextractor.
Each of these errors is considered to be recoverable.
The operator has two minutes to respond to the error
condition (except in the case of “WATER”). During
this time, the control will turn the signal (buzzer) relay
on and off at the rate of one second on and one second
off to alert the operator to the error condition. The
washer-extractor may be restarted by pressing the Start
keypad. Pressing the Start keypad will restart the cycle
step for the originally programmed time period.
“WATER” will remain displayed until the error is
corrected. The cycle may be aborted by pressing the
Stop keypad. After aborting the cycle, the control will
go to the normal stop routine. If the operator does not
respond to the error condition within the allocated two
minutes, the control will automatically abort the cycle.
NOTE: The “TEMP” alarm can be recovered only
after the temperature falls below the alarm level.

Maintenance
Monthly
NOTE: Disconnect power to the washer-extractor
at its source before performing the monthly
maintenance procedures.
1. Each month OR after every 200 hours of
operation, lubricate bearings. (Locate the bearing
lubrication decal at the rear of the right side of
the machine, as viewed from the front of the
washer-extractor.)
The grease must have the following
characteristics:
• NLGI Grade 2
• Lithium-based
• Water-insoluble
• Anti-rusting
• Anti-oxidizing
• Mechanically stable
The grease must have adequate base oil viscosity
with one of the following ratings:
• Tension Gauge. Loosen motor mounting
bolts and slide motor along motor plate to
change belt span length. The belt tension on
UW35 – UW125 models should be between
70 and 90 pounds (± 5 pounds). The belt
tension on the UW150 should be between
130 and 150 pounds (± 5 pounds). (Set initial
tension toward the high end of this range.)
The UW150 uses a swing mount motor with
an adjustable spring used for tensioning.
• Deflection. Refer to Figure 12. Loosen motor
mounting bolts and slide motor along motor
plate to change belt span length. Belt tension
measurements should be taken as close to the
center of the belt span as possible. For every
inch of span length, the belt should deflect
1/64 inch (0.40 mm). Thus, a belt with span
length of 50 inches should deflect 50/64 inch
(19.84 mm). An initial (run-in) force of
5.25 pounds should be used to set the belt
tension. An operating (normal) force of
3.5 pounds should be used after the washerextractor has been operated for a few hours.
• ISO VG 150 (135 – 165 cSt at 40°C or
709 – 871 SUS at 100°F)
• ISO VG 220 (198 – 242 cSt at 40°C or
1047 – 1283 SUS at 100°F)
1
• An SAE 40 rating is also acceptable as long as
the cSt or SUS values are within the specified
ranges.
Pump the grease gun slowly, permitting only
2 strokes.
2. Use the following procedures to determine if
V-belts require replacement or adjustment. Call a
qualified service technician in either case.

Maintenance
Care of Stainless Steel
• Remove dirt and grease with detergent and water.
Thoroughly rinse and dry after washing.
• Avoid contact with dissimilar metals to prevent
galvanic corrosion when salty or acidic solutions
are present.
• Do not allow salty or acidic solutions to
evaporate and dry on stainless steel. Wipe clean
of any residues.
• Rub in the direction of the polish lines or “grain”
of the stainless steel to avoid scratch marks when
using abrasive cleaners. Use stainless steel wool
or soft, non-metal bristle brushes. Do not use
ordinary steel wool or steel brushes.
• Remove discoloration or heat tint from
overheating by scouring with a powder or by
employing special chemical solutions.
F232201
• Do not leave sanitizers or sterilizing solutions on
stainless steel equipment for prolonged periods
of time.
• When an external chemical supply is used,
ensure 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 with the
machine. Damage of this kind is not covered by
the manufacturer’s warranty. Locate the pump
below the washer-extractor’s injection point to
prevent siphoning of chemicals into the machine.
• 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. Tip: Paint all carbon steel parts with a
heavy protective coating. Stainless steel fasteners
should be used whenever possible.
