Wash and Spin Action Tested Independently to 3000 Cycles

Verification Method

Twenty (20) washers of similar design are each be tested to 3,000 cycles with eight (8) lb terry cloth towel loads placed in each machine. No soils or chemical additives (bleach, detergent, softener, etc.) are used during testing. Machines under evaluation are subject to operation 24 hours a day / 7 days a week with limited operator interaction (up to 66 hours between operator interactions). Ten (10) washers are each tested using a Spin Action test cycle as follows: fill, short rinse tumble, drain, spin, repeat. Ten (10) washers are each tested using a Wash Action test cycle as follows: fill, wash 1, pause, wash 2, pause, wash 3, pause, wash 4, pause, wash 5, pause, drain, spin, repeat. The number of washes before a drain and spin may be changed as needed. All test cycle must simulate the normal operation of the machine. Operation which is likely to result in significant customer dissatisfaction is considered a failure. All machines are observed after completing the test to determine if basic operating characteristics have changed substantially. Wear is not considered a failure as long as the product still functions properly and does not create an obvious safety hazard.
