  • Washer Extractors

    • Read all instructions before using the washer.
    • Install the washer according to the INSTALLATION instructions. Refer to the EARTHING instructions in the INSTALLATION manual for the proper earthing of the washer. All connections for water, drain, electrical power and earthing must comply with local codes and be made by licensed personnel when required. It is recommended that the machine be installed by qualified technicians.
    • Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to water and/or weather.
    • To prevent fire and explosion, keep the area around machine free from flammable and combustible products. Do not add the following substances or textiles containing traces of the following substances to the wash water: gasoline, kerosene, waxes, cooking oils, vegetable oils, machine oils, dry-cleaning solvents, flammable chemicals, thinners, or other flammable or explosive substances. These substances give off vapors that could ignite, explode or cause the fabric to catch fire by itself.
    • 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.
    • To reduce the risk of an electric shock or fire, DO NOT use an extension cord or an adapter to connect the washer to the electrical power source.
    • 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 appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. This is a safety rule for all appliances.
    • DO NOT reach and/or climb into the tub or onto the washer, ESPECIALLY if the wash drum is moving. This is an imminently hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will cause severe personal injury or death.
    • Never operate the washer with any guards, panels and/or parts removed or broken. DO NOT bypass any safety devices or tamper with the controls.
    • Use washer only for its intended purpose, washing textiles. Never wash machine parts or automotive parts in the machine. This could result in serious damage to the basket or tub.
    • Use only low-sudsing, no-foaming types of commercial detergent. Be aware that hazardous chemicals may be present. Wear hand and eye protection when adding detergents and chemicals. Always read and follow manufacturer's instructions on packages of laundry and cleaning aids. Heed all warnings or precautions. To reduce the risk of poisoning or chemical burns, keep them out of the reach of children at all times (preferably in a locked cabinet).
    • Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
    • Always follow the fabric care instructions supplied by the textile manufacturer.

The dryer will stop tumbling when the door is opened. Do not use the dryer if it does not stop tumbling when the door is opened or starts tumbling without pressing the START mechanism. Remove the dryer from use and call the service person.
    • ALWAYS clean the lint filter after every load. A layer of lint in the filter reduces drying efficiency and prolongs drying time. Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent surrounding area free from the accumulation of lint, dust and dirt. The interior of the dryer and the exhaust duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.
    • Do not repair or replace any part of the dryer, or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out. ALWAYS disconnect the electrical power to the dryer before attempting service. Disconnect the power cord by grasping the plug, not the cord.
    • If supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord or assembly available from the manufacturer or its service agent.
    • Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the drying compartment.
    • Failure to install, maintain and/or operate this machine according to the manufacturer's instructions may result in conditions which can produce bodily injury and/or property damage.
  • Flatwork Finishers

    • Read all instructions before using the finisher.
    • Do not iron (finish) articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
    • Do not allow children to play on or around the finisher. Close supervision of children is necessary when the finisher is used near children. This is a safety rule for all appliances.
    • Check the operation of the safety finger guard at the beginning of every shift. Operating the safety guard should stop the finisher immediately. Do not operate the finisher until the safety finger guard is repaired and working properly. Be sure that all other safety features, including guards and panels, are in place before operating the finisher.
    • Never try to remove, adjust or straighten jammed or misfed linen while the finisher is running. Attempting to clear the jammed linen item can result in the user being caught in the linen and pulled into the finisher. If something is jammed in the finisher, turn off the power before attempting to correct the problem. Avoid contact with heated parts.
    • Protect yourself and fellow workers by making sure that everyone follows all the rules. Read and follow all safety labels and warnings. Learn all aspects of the equipment. Do not come close to moving or heated parts. Do not wear loose clothing, sweaters, jewelry or neck ties when near the finisher.
    • To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT iron (finish) plastics or articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials.
    • Do not put articles soiled with vegetable or cooking oil in the finisher, as these oils may not be removed during washing. Due to the remaining oil, the fabric may catch on fire by itself.
    • To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT put articles which have traces of any flammable substances, such as machine oil, flammable chemicals, thinner, etc. or anything containing wax or chemicals, such as in mops and cleaning cloths, or anything dry-cleaned at home with dry-cleaning solvent in the finisher.
  • Gear Cabinets

    • Read all instructions before using the gear cabinet.
    • Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
    • Do not allow children on or in the gear cabinet. This appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
    • To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT DRY plastics or articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubberlike materials.
