New Features for 1959

SAFETY DOOR LATCH-ALL MODELS: The dryer door latch and strike contact surfaces, Figure 5, have been redesigned to provide both positive closure and easy release from inside the dryer. This safety feature is most desirable on appliances.

INTERIOR LAMP-IMPERIAL MODELS: An interior lamp, Figure 6, has been added on the Imperial Model. It mounts by means of a bracket at the dryer rear. A hole in the shell permits light to illuminate the interior. A defective lamp can be replaced by removing dryer rear cover.

Figure 5 Safety Door Latch and Strike

CYCLE-END BUZZER - IMPERIAL AND CUSTOM IMPERIAL MODELS: Imperial and Custom Imperial Models incorporate a cycle-end buzzer, Figures 6 and

7. The buzzer is energized for a maximum of 45 seconds at the end of the timed drying cycle on these models. It is not energized at the end of the automatic drying cycle.

AUTOMATIC SPRINKLER-IMPERIAL AND CUSTOM IMPERIAL MODELS: Imperial and Custom Imperial Models feature a built-in clothes sprinkling system, Figures 6 and 7. Sprinkling is accomplished by means of a tank located in the control housing and a rubber hose leading from the tank to a plastic sprinkler nozzle which locates in a hole in the center of the drum-shaft. The nozzle extends through the shaft to permit the ejection of water into the dryer drum. The rubber hose is supported by a mounting bracket at the dryer rear and internally by a piece of copper tube extending from the bracket to the nozzle.

To use the sprinkler, clothes are placed in the drum, the heat selector is set for Sprinkler or Sprinkle Cycle, the Timer is set at Sprinkler (17 minute marking on

timer dial) to start operation and the recommended amount of water is poured into the fill opening. Water is ejected in a fine spray from the plastic nozzle located in the drum shaft. At the end of the cycle, the buzzer will sound, indicating the clothes are dampened and ready for immediate ironing.

HEAT SELECTION-CUSTOM DELUXE MODELS:

The Custom DeLuxe Model, comparable, except for cabinet finish, to the DDP-58 Model in all other features, now incorporates a heat selector, Figure 8, for the choice of NORMAL temperature or NO HEAT.

AUTOMATIC DRYING AND TIMED DRYING: IMPERIAL AND CUSTOM IMPERIAL MODELS

Two types of drying, automatic or timed, are offered for the first time by Frigidaire on the Imperial and Custom Imperial Models. The use of timed drying remains the same as in past years; namely, that temperature and time are manually selected by the user for the type fabric to be dried. In this operation, the timer motor runs at all times.

The automatic drying cycle for the 1959 Imperial and Custom Imperial dryers approaches an ideal dryer

mechanism. The user no longer has to convert a load of washed material into a time setting of minutes and a temperature in either degrees or any other temperature nomenclature. The proper settings at best judgment on a straight timed dryer are usually learned only after several loads and with the aid of a table in an instruction booklet. The automatic cycle user merely has to distinguish the type of fabric of her clothes load. This is generally obvious to the average housewife. She sets the dial marked for type of fabric which indirectly establishes the drying time and temperature. The settings are always the same regardless of load size or moisture content.

The automatic drying cycle is based on temperature. During the drying period, the timer runs only when the heaters are off and conversely the timer is off when the

heaters are energized. This has been accomplished by installing single-pole, double-throw thermostats. The heat sensitive switches determine the circuits to accomplish the above operation. The heaters are always on longer to satisfy the thermostat when a larger load or greater amount of moisture is in the drum. Thus the variable total drying time is accomplished because the timer will not advance toward SHUTOFF unless the thermostat is satisfied. The spacings of the settings in the automatic portion of the timer have been calibrated to give approximately the same time and heat cycles for a corresponding load if it were accurately set on the present time cycle.

The automatic cycle has been accepted to be superior to a regular timed cycle because the clothes will never be under-dry or over-dry.

Nofe: The temperature selector on DI-59 and DCI-59 models should always be set to "Delicate" for proper automatic drying operation whenever these models are installed on 2 wire, 120 volt, electrical supply. (See Electrical Recommendations.)

HEATING ELEMENT CHANGE-DELUXE, CUSTOM DELUXE, AND IMPERIAL MODELS: The open coil type heater, Figure 9, used on venting type dryers, has been improved to reduce the possibility of failure. The heater frame has been relocated to prevent contact between the frame and the heater coil. A single coil is used requiring the use of only two terminal studs instead of three. The coil ends are permanently attached to the studs and the diameter of the coil has been increased to provide freer air movement over the heater. Special 208 volt or 250 volt heaters are available for special voltage conditions in some areas. This improved heater will be available as a replacement for 1957 and 1958 venting type dryers.

Improved Open Coil Type Heater

Construction and Operation

The DeLuxe, Custom DeLuxe, and Imperial Model dryers have a wrap-around, all steel cabinet on three sides. The Custom Imperial model has removable side and front panels, as well as a subtop and an interior frame.

DeLuxe and Custom DeLuxe Models incorporate a 145 minute timer which permits the heating element to be energized for a maximum of 135 minutes. The additional 10 minutes are utilized at the end of the drying period to permit the clothes to start cooling, with the heating element de-energized. The drying time-can be varied by setting the timer dial to the desired length of drying time.

Imperial and Custom Imperial Models incorporate 115 minute timers which provide 24 minutes, ON time only, for the automatic drying cycle, and 85 minutes for the timed drying cycle, the last 10 minutes of which the heating element is de-energized.

Figures 10 and 11, illustrate the air flow and clothes drying methods employed on all dryers. Further details regarding these principles may be found in , Volume VIII, No. 3A, Pages 50, 51, and 52.

Special: The efficiency of the airflow system in De-Luxe, Custom DeLuxe, and Imperial Models is dependent upon proper sealing.

A test can be performed on these dryers to be certain of proper air flow by turning on the dryer and permitting it to run from a cold start with no load in the drum. Set the temperature selector knob, if present, to NORMAL. The heater should immediately energize and remain energized for from 5 to 8 minutes.

Should the heater cut off too soon or too late, defective sealing and/or defective thermostat operation is indicated and proper corrective measures should be taken.

SHOW ROOM DISPLAY: For display purposes, all dryers designed for 120/240 volt, 3-wire service can be installed by substituting a 2-wire service cord with conventional two-blade plug for the standard three-blade plug. Connect the leads from this service cord to the Black terminal and the White (Neutral) terminal on the terminal block. Make certain that the Neutral terminal is not grounded on such a hookup as a shock will result. With the product wired in this manner, the heating elements are not energized.

Nofe: The wiring diagrams for all dryers contain electrical instructions for displaying the product.

Electrical Recommendations

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS SHOULD CONFORM TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE AND TO SUCH LOCAL REGULATIONS AS MIGHT APPLY.

It is the user's responsibility to provide the necessary electrical facilities as follows:

DD-59, DCD-59, DI-59, and DCI-59: 120/240 volt, 3-wire, separate branch circuit fused for 30 amperes.

Figure 1 1

Models DD-59, DCD 59 and DI-59 Air Circulation

Page 10:

Use either 3/4z rigid conduit or armored cable or, preferably, a standard range cord and plug assembly (pigtail).

When using a pigtail, a suitable 3-wire receptacle should be mounted on the wall adjacent to the dryer, readily accessible to the user.

If rigid conduit or armored cable is used, the branch circuit must be provided with an approved 30 ampere switch at the distribution panel or at the dryer.

The Cabinet Must Be Grounded-A grounding strap is attached to each terminal block bracket. If it is desired to use the strap for grounding purposes, the free end of the strap must be attached to the center terminal. If a separate grounding wire is required, a No. 14 AWG wire with solderless connector can be attached to the screw provided on the terminal block bracket and then run to an approved grounding electrode such as a cold water pipe.

DD-59, DCD-59, DI-59 and DCI-59 Models Converted to 120 Volt Operation:

(120 Volt, 2-wire separate branch circuit fused for 20 amperes.)

All dryers can be converted to 2-wire, 120 volt operation by changing the Red lead at the terminal block from the Red to the White terminal and by using Cord Package No. 5876843 for connecting the dryer to the source of

electrical supply. The 3-conductor cord in this package has a 3-wire attachment plug cap of the grounding type. One conductor is colored Green and must be attached to the terminal block mounting bracket. Use a grounded receptacle, Figure 12, for receiving the 3-blade connector. If the receptacle is not grounded, use Adapter Piece No. EA-99675, Figure 13, to ground the receptacle by means of the grounding pigtail.

Note: Special Heater, Piece No. 5429923, is available for DCI-59 models converted to 120 volt operation to provide slightly shorter drying times, if required. Electrically, only one heater is required in place of the two already on the product.

Installation Instructions

GENERAL: It is suggested that the dryer be uncrated in the warehouse or store and be inspected for any transit damage. During delivery, the dryer should be wrapped in protective padding and secured to the delivery truck to prevent damage from product shifting. The base of the crate and the drum support pads should be left with the dryer until it reaches its point of use. Figures 14 and 15 illustrate installation steps. Installation dimensions are detailed in these illustrations.

ALL MODELS: Remove the crate base and lay the product on its left side (protect with padding). Assemble a hex nut to each leveling glide and install one glide at each corner of the cabinet base. (Glides and nuts are in the cloth bag shipped in the condensate pan on Custom Imperial models and in the drum on DeLuxe, Custom DeLuxe, and Imperial models.)

ALL MODELS: Remove the terminal block cover from the rear of the dryer and connect the White lead of the supply cord or cable to the center (Neutral) terminal. The Red and the Black leads must be attached to the outer terminals for 120/240 volt operation. If the dryer is to be grounded by means of the grounding strap, the free end of the strap should also be attached to the Neutral terminal.

All Models Converted to 120 Volt Operation:

See Electrical Recommendations for Supply Cord Installation.

DCI-59:

A permanent drain can be provided for these models if desired. Remove the plug from the rear of the condensate pan and attach the necessary length of rubber or plastic hose to the drain spud in the rear of the dryer. Place a screen, Piece No. 5433861 available from your distributor, in the rear of the pan, Figure 35. Adjust the leveling glides to provide a y8" slope from front to rear; lock the glides with the lock nuts.

Note: Use the shelf above the drain pan for leveling.

DD-59, DCD-59 and DI-59 Models:

The leveling glides for these models must be adjusted to level the cabinet-no slope is necessary. Lock the glides in place with lock nuts.

59 Line is the Finest Yet

The 1959 Frigidaire Dryer line should prove a joy to any homemaker because the many new features not only meet comparable competitive features, but of more importance they answer the needs and desires of our customers.

What are these needs? Well, one of the most frequently asked questions is: "How can I tell how long to dry my clothes?" The answer is that on 1959 Imperial and Custom Imperial models she doesn't have to know how. These dryers incorporate the "Automatic Drying Cycle" which requires no estimate of drying time. Most of the family wash requires the homemaker to simply place the clothes in the dryer, set the Fabric Heat Selector and Time Control for the type fabrics being dried, and the dryer does the rest. There will be no overdried or underdried clothes. Generally, the following settings should be used:

Regular-Regular loads of cottons and linens, such as tea towels, sheets, tablecloths.

Delicate-Lingerie, blouses, and other sheer or delicate garments.

Bulky-Rugs, bedspreads, work clothes, bath towels.

Many homemakers will not be completely .satisfied with an "Automatic" answer because they prefer to damp-dry clothes based on past experience. If so, the 1959 Imperial and Custom Imperial models also provide a "Timed Drying Cycle." This can be used the same as in past models and in addition the timed cycle is recommended for special garments such as woolens, Wash and Wear, sheer curtains, blankets, pillows, and for fluffing with no heat. Then, too, as an additional help, a new "Automatic Signal" will sound at the end of the timed cycle to remind the customer that clothes should be removed immediately, especially when using the "Wrinkles-Away" Cycle.

When mentioning "Wrinkles-Away," we must remember another desire of our customers and that is saving of ironing time. "Wrinkles-Away" can reduce ironing time as much as 9 hours each week, depending upon the number of Wash and Wear garments the family may use. This feature is offered on all models and the principle and use remains the same as in 1958 models. Certain limitations regarding garments with accordian pleats and nylon, orlon, and dacron curtains are pointed out in the Instruction Book.

Let's not overlook the desire of customers to enjoy another new feature provided in Imperial and Custom Imperial Models. We refer to "Automatic Sprinkling" because in these busy days, homemakers often have to do their ironing in "bits," rather than all at once. If

so, she may want to dry clothes completely to eliminate the danger of mildew and then sprinkle them as she irons. This she can do by using "Automatic Sprinkling."

Tips for Successful Drying

In all appliances, there are tips which will help the customer enjoy the product to the fullest. Here are a few for drying clothes:

Drying Timetables

The drying times given in the instruction book should be used only as a guide to estimate times for specific loads. There will be variations depending upon the type of load, the fabric, the number of garments, and the washer in which they were washed. Naturally, all of the times given are based on water extraction in a Frigidaire washer. Clothes spun in other type washers will take longer to dry.

Drying Starched Clothes

Overdrying

Starched clothes may be dried successfully according to the following:

1. Dry starched clothes separately.

2. Start with a cool drum.

3. If desired, use a heavier starch.

4. Starched clothes should be removed damp-dry for ironing. If allowed to dry completely some of the starch-particularly cornstarch-will flake off and thus the garment loses some of its desired stiffness.

Many complaints result directly from overdrying. Remember that all fibers have some natural moisture. To remove this moisture results in wrinkling, shrinkage, harshness and sometimes yellowing.

Clothes should be removed from the dryer while they still feel a trifle moist. On the DI and DCI-59 models, the Automatic Drying cycle will dry clothes to just the right dryness. On other models, the homemaker should use the minimum time given in the timetable.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1959 Easy Automatic Washer Service Manual
Here is the service manual introducing the very first Velva-Power Easy Washers. The 1959 Easy Automatic Washer series Golden Regent and Riviera. Models ADK and ABK.

Sections include full specifications, Installation, Operating Instructions, Cycle of Operation Charts, Tools, Dismantling, Reassembly, Replacement of Parts, Adjustment, Troubleshooting Charts and Wiring Diagrams/Schematics.

The 1959 Automatic Washers Models ADK and ABK are equipped with a completely new, revolutionized, sealed transmission. This new "Velva Powered" transmission (equipped with a direct drive motor) has been thoroughly field tested commercially and in homes. It requires no belts, pulleys, solenoids, or other devices, such as "cut off" switches.

The limited out-put torque clutch in the transmission accomplishes two definite purposes. It permits gradual acceleration of the wash tub without overloading the motor and controls the spin speed, preventing the tub from reaching high r.p.m. when subjected to extremely unbalanced loads, eliminating the need for any cut-off device. An internal brake applied automatically at the end of the cycle allows the spin tub to come to a smooth gliding stop.

Automatic shifting from agitation to spin is accomplished by means of a two-speed, heavy duty, reversible, :Y3 H.P., 115 V., 60 cycle motor. An overload protector built into the motor prevents motor "burn-out."

A completely new type of discharge pump directly driven by the motor further eliminates pulleys and belts.
