From this time on, the operator normally will
not have to return until the signal sounds. The
bell to this signal can be silenced by securing
power or depressing the button.
If the automatic timer is inoperative, you will
have to operate the machine manually. Manual
mode should not be used when the washer timer
is operating properly. The controls and switches
as mentioned earlier when used properly allow the
operator to use the manual mode. Looking back

LOADING AND UNLOADING
Before the wash in the washer extractor is
done, attending laundry personnel should have
three piles of sorted and weighed soiled laundry
ready for loading. The unloading process is just
the opposite of the loading process. Make sure
when you open the outer shell door that the
cylinder has come to a complete stop and all
switches are de-energized. You are now ready to
line up the cylinder doors with the outer shell door
for unloading purposes. CAUTION: NEVER stick
any part of your hand or arm inside the shell door
if any of the washer extractor controls are
energized. After unloading the freshly laundered
clothing, it should be routed to the next processing
station and the presorted and weighed soiled
laundry loaded. The clean laundry should be
routed swiftly to prevent it getting mixed up with
other laundry. It is either routed to the press deck
for processing on the presses or flatwork ironer
or placed in the dryer for drying.
