The partides of soiling substances which are freed from the textile fibres by the chemical action of the detergent at the temperature of the washing water are re-moved by the flow of water through the fibres. The reversing rotation ofthe drum causes mechamcal interaction between the parts ofthe load and the detergent solution which separates the partides from the textlies. The water level is at such a height that the load is successively lifted from the solution by the ridges formed in the inner drum and then falls back into the solution. The Circulation ofthe solution during the rotation ofthe drum prevents the accumulation of detergent in the rubber bottom.

Front hatch
The hatch is locked during washing by a bimetallic electric hatch lock and is opened by depressmg the hatch lock pad. When the hatch is closed and the On/Off button is pressed, a Signal lamp Illuminates after approximately 5 seconds, the hatch 1s locked electrically and the selected washing cycle Starts. When the program has been exe-cuted, the lamp extinguishes after 45-120 seconds and the hatch can be reopened. 9 External hatch frame Hatch lock pad Hatch glass Internal hatch frame Hatch hinge Electrical hatch lock Locklever Splash protection Supporting beam

Hatch locking switch

The security of the hatch is ensured by an electromagnetlc lock with function s described below. when the lock is activated, the voltage-sensing unit closes the switch which con-nects voltage to the electrical components of the machine. During operations, the slide (A) remains mechanically locked and thereby prevents opening of the hatch by fixing the hatch lock lever When the hatch lock has been deactivated, It remains locked for approximately 45-120 seconds to ensure that the drum is statlonary before the hatch is opened.

Monrtoring of spin phase for imbalance
This sequence is repeated while the load remains unbalanced.
.a total of 16 times (10 minutes) or until balance is achieved. if balance is not obtained, the spin is omitted from the program.

Programmed control unit

Imbalance control, function
A check for imbalance of the load 1s performed during 15 seconds at 85 rev/min. before the spin phase. If imbalance is detected, the tachometer generator and the motor current give an irregulr Signal to the micro-processor on the electronics board which then Interrupts the spin phase. The machine then returns to 55 rev/mm. rotation and re-distributes the load to achieve balance before performing a new check at 85 rev/min. If imbalance persists, redlstribution of the load is repeated for a period of 10 minutes (16 attempts) or until balance is achleved. If no balance is obtained after 10 minutes, the program continues forward with-outspln. When balance is obtained, the program continues with spin atthe speed speci-fied.

Water supply valve

General characteristics

This electro-magnetic controlled valve regulates the supply of water to the machine via the water distributor in the detergent distributor. It 1s actuated by a solenold which is controlled electrically bythe programmed Controller via the level regulator. When the valve Is inactive, (without voltage) the spring holds the splndle down and the rubber cone seals a small hole at the centre of the membrane. A head of water bullds up which holds the membrane against Its seating and closes the valve. When voltage 1s applled to the solenold, the splndle with the rubber cone is drawn up-ward against the spring and the hole in the membrane 1s exposed, permitting the passage of water. The pressure differential 1s lost and water can flow freely through the valve. 9 Water entry Valve housing Filter Flow regulator Coil Spring Spindle Rubber cone Membrane 10 Water delivery

Level regulator

The level regulator momtors the level of the water in the machlne and adapts the water level to that required at different stages ofthe washing sequence selected. acts s a low-water safety device s It is connected in series with the heating ele-ment. It disconnects the voltage to the element when the water falls below a certaln level. acts s an anti-foam protection by sending a Signal to the electromcs which Interrupts the spln phase and restarts this when the foam has subsided. (VE 60 and V 60 program med Controllers).

Heating Element
The element for heating the water is of the encapsulated type, i.e. the spiral resistor is hermetically sealed in a stainless steel enclosure. Power Resistance 1600 W 230 V 240 V 31.2 - 34.3 Ohm 33.9 - 37.4 Ohm
Element Rubber packing Fixed f lange Electrical connection pin Locking nut Adjustable f lange Fuse
The seal between the element and the outer drum is obtained with a rubber packing which expands when the locking nut is tightened.
NTC-Thermistor (Temperature control)
Temperature control by means of NTC thermistors is incorporated in models controlled by Programmed control units VA 60, VB 60 and VE 60.

NTC temperature sensors

Plastic housing Metal capsule NTC resistance Electrical contacts
Table with resistance at different temperatures (3%) Temperature C 85 Resistance kOhm 17.3 11.5 7.84 5.46 3.90 2.97 2.32
The temperature of the washing water is controlled by the microprocessor via an NTC sensor. The internal resistance ofthe sensor decreases s the temperature increases. This decrease is registered by the microprocessor which disconnects the heating element when the required temperature has been reached. With a short-circult or other failure in the NTC thermistor, the control unit cancels the heating stage and completes the program without heating. 10.2003 R.K.

Drainage pump
Impeller Rotor Stator Pump housing 0-ring
The rotor consists of a permanent magnet which can rotate clockwise or anti clock-wise. The rotor can rotate one quarter revolution without movement ofthe impeller. Ifthe impeller seizes, the rotor can therefore make small movements in both directions until the impeller is freed. An unusual sound may be heard at Start which is quite normal. Function check Check that the impeller can move freely. Check the resistance of the Stator winding. This should be 170 Ohm. Max. capacity Power consumptlon = 20 l/mm. = 30 W

Remove the clamping ring around the hatch opening and then separate the bellows from the front. Disconnect all of the electrical contacts from the drum unit (heating element, motor and temperature sensor). Disconnect the drainage hose and the drainage pump from the rubber bottom (see page 33). Disconnect the hoses between the detergent dispenser and the outer drum (at the drum). Disconnect the air hoses at the level regulators. The rear counterweight and the motor can be removed from the drum unit to simplify the lifting of the drum unit out of the enclosure. Remove the pressure chamber and the electronics unit to obtain access to the shock absorbers. Disconnect the shock absorbers from the drum unit by removing the pin at the upper fixing.

10 Lay the machine on the floor, front downwards, making suitable arrangements to protect knobs, buttons etc. against damage. 11 Disconnect the suspension springs from the upper part. This can be simplified by placing a wire loop under the end of the spring and pulling on the loop with a "handle" - a screwdriver or similar. 12 Grip the pulley and lift the drum unit, (with back so straight as possible), off the chassis. lt is recommended that two persons perform this operation.

Shock absorbers

The shock absorbers are installed between the lower frame and the drum unit and are held in positlon in the fixmgs with pms.
Removal of shock absorbers:
Depress the lockmg catch by pushmg a pipe socket (A) over the end ofthe pin and the catch, (internal diameter of socket (0 = 14 mm.). Withdraw the pin from its fixmg with pliers. The shock absorber can be removed when the upper and lower pins are removed.


As the original pms may be damaged during withdrawal, new pms should be used. Lubricate the pm with some type of alcohol. The lubricant must evaporate after insertion of the pins and grease may not be used. Rotate and fully insert the pm from elther slde. Check that the locking catches project and lock the pins correctiy.
