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

Environmental Conditions
• Ambient Temperature. Water in 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 machine’s electronics or motors to
malfunction or may trip ground fault interrupter.
Corrosion problems may occur on some metal
components in machine.
If 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 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 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 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.

DANGER
Do not place volatile or flammable fluids
in any machine. Do not clean the machine
with volatile or flammable fluids such as
acetone, lacquer thinners, enamel
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 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 floor
loads generated by high extract speeds of
machine.
• 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 – 5.7 bar). Although 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 – 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
supplied steam filter may void warranty.
• Drainage System. Provide drain lines or troughs
large enough to accommodate total number of
gallons that could be released if all machines on
site drained at same time from highest attainable
level. If troughs are used, they should be covered
to support light foot traffic.
• Power. For personal safety and for proper
operation, machine must be grounded in
accordance with state and local codes. Ground
connection must be to a proven earth ground, not
to conduit or water pipes. Do not use fuses in
place of circuit breaker. An easy-access 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
DirectDrive
Machines equipped with DirectDrive require special
attention with regard to operating environment.
• An especially dusty or linty environment will
require more frequent cleaning of AC inverter
drive cooling fan filter and of AC inverter drive
itself.
• Power line fluctuations from sources such as
uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can
adversely affect machines equipped with AC
inverter drive. Proper suppression devices should
be utilized on incoming power to machine to
avoid problems.
F8112201
• A clean power supply free from voltage spikes
and surges is absolutely essential for machines
equipped with AC inverter drive. Inconsistencies
(peaks and valleys) in power supply can cause
AC inverter drive to generate nuisance errors.
If voltage is above 230 Volt for 200 Volt
installation or 460 Volt for 400 Volt installation,
ask power company to correct. As an alternative,
a step-down transformer kit is available from
distributor. If voltage is above 240 Volt for 200
Volt installation or 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 AC
inverter drive.

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 direction of polish lines or “grain” of
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.
F8112201
• 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 washerextractor is not in use. Highly concentrated
chemicals can cause severe damage to stainless
steel and other components with machine.
Damage of this kind is not covered by
manufacturer’s warranty. Locate pump below
washer-extractor’s injection point to prevent
siphoning of chemicals into machine.
• If 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.
