SECTION I. DESCRIPTION AND SPECIFICATIONS

1. GENERAL

This manual covers instructions for three different models of Blackstone Automatic Washers. Dimensionally, all three models are alike. All three have the same mechanical system; the main differences will be found in their controls and programming features. All models have reversing motors that rotate clockwise during agitation and counterclockwise during spin. NOTE: Model BA 650 is the same as Model BA 600 except that it has a stainless steel tub.

3. MODEL BA 600/650

This model provides two washing cycles and a soak cycle. It has two agitation and spin speeds (normal) and (slow) obtained through a direct belted two-speed motor. It offers four combinations of wash and rinse water temperatures, and a choice of two combinations of wash and spin speeds.

The cycle control permits the operator to select any washing period up to 14 minutes in the regular cycle, and up to 6 minutes in the special cycle. Any part of any cycle can be shortened, skipped, lengthened or repeated. Water level, during the "fill" phase, is controlled by time.

2. MODEL BA 500

This model provides two washing cycles (regular) and (special) and a soak cycle. Its water temperature selector offers two combinations of wash and rinse water. The cycle control permits the operator to select any washing period up to 14 minutes in the regular cycle, and up to 6 minutes in the special cycle. Any part of any cycle can be shortened, skipped, lengthened or repeated. Water level, during the "fill" phase, is controlled by time.

4. MODEL BA 750

This model has pushbutton controls for selection of water temperature and agitation and spin speeds. See Par. 5e. Two washing cycles and a soak cycle are provided.

The cycle control permits the operator to sel-lect any washing period up to I4minutes in the regular cycle, and up to 6 minutes in the special cycle. Any part of any cycle can be shortened, skipped, lengthened or repeated. Water level, during the "fill" phase, is controlled by time.

Model BA 750 recirculates water from the collector tank during the "wash" and "agitated rinse" phases of the automatic cycle. This model is also equipped with a stainless steel tub with sediment ejector.

A bleach dispenser under the lid conveys liquid bleach directly into the collector tank.

SECTION II. INSPECTION, UNCRATING AND INSTALLATION

6. INSPECTION

Blackstone washers are shipped from the factory in a completely sealed, heavy duty corrugated carton. A careful inspection of the carton should be made immediately upon receipt of shipment. If external damage is detected before uncrating, the shipment should not be accepted until a claim is filed. In case there is concealed damage, not apparent at the time of delivery, a claim should also be filed as quickly as possible.

Iris the responsibility of the consignee to file claim for transportation damage. An immediate contact should be made with the transportation company and they will advise procedure and supply necessary forms.

Figure 6

7. UNCRATING

Cut the strap at the bottom of the shipping crate (Fig. 6). Carefully lift crate from cabinet of washer. Remove cardboard packing from within tub as follows (Fig. 7):

1. Remove cap screw and washer (1).

2. Remove shipping pad (2).

3. Remove hoses from inside of tub, and packaged installation kit consisting of the following parts:

4-hex lock nuts for leveling legs 4-foot pads for leveling legs 4-hose washers for inlet hoses 1-hose clamp for discharge hose 1 - agitator cap

4. Install agitator cap on agitator post.

Figure 7

5. Tip washer over, remove four leveling legs and remove crate bottom (Fig. 8). Do not lift washer by control enclosure. Discard washers. Protect cabinet finish at all times. Be sure lock nuts are in place on leveling legs and replace leveling legs in base of washer (Fig. 9).

8. INSTALLATION

1. Install washers in both ends of two inlet hoses and attach to the water valve of the washer. Caution should be observed to prevent cross threading of hose couplings and nylon connection of water valve. Attach hose carrying hot water line to connection marked "HOT", and cold water hose to other connection.
Page 9:

Figure 9

Place hose clamp on discharge hose and install hose. Position clamp over outlet pipe on washer. The gooseneck drain hose should empty at a point preferably no higher than the top of the cabinet (Fig. 10).

Figure 10

2. Washer must be level on solid floor on all four leveling legs. Place a carpenter's level on the top of the cabinet and adjust the leveling legs until unit stands level in both directions (Fig. 11). IMPORTANT: All locknuts should be securely tightened.

3. Place leveling leg foot pads under each leg after washer is in desired position.

4. Ground the washer. All Blackstone automatic washers are equipped with a seven-foot, plug-in type, three-wire service cord for 115-volt, 60-cycle AC circuit. If a three-prong grounded wall receptacle is not available, the machine must be grounded by attaching a No. 18 copper wire to rear panel screw and clamping the other end to cold water pipe, using regulation ground clamp.

6. Check electrical connections. Make sure that an electrical outlet is within reach of the cord on the machine; also that no other appliances are connected on the same line. Full rated voltage is essential for satisfactory operation. Be sure to comply with local plumbing and electrical codes.

5. Make sure there are no kinks in the hoses to impede the flow of water entering or being discharged from the machine.

7. Check the water level. Since all Black-stone washers employ a "timed" fill, the a-mount of water entering the tub during the fill cycle is controlled by a special flow washer in the water valve. After installing the washer, put it through a test cycle. Observe the water level after the initial fill.

It should be just above the top of the agitator fins. If level is too low, check the water pressure. If less than 20 pounds, replace the flow washer with one of larger aperture. (See instructions in Par. 42).

Refer to the Use and Care Manual for information on operation and maintenance.

SECTION V. SERVICE OF THE MECHANICAL SYSTEM

26. GENERAL

Since the service instructions in this section will sometimes involve considerable tear-down of the machine, the major subassemblies are discussed in logical order of disassembly. Replacement instructions are given for each component as discussed in the text, although this information will not be applied until the ultimate point of tear-down is reached.

27. OPERATION OF THE TRANSMISSION

The washer drive is entirely mechanical. The motor, in clockwise rotation, drives the transmission pinion shaft through belt and pulleys. This rotation produces an eccentric operation of the gear'train, resulting in agitator action of 68 oscillations per minute.

During the spin phase, motor rotation is counterclockwise. Rotation in this direction causes a concentric motion of the gear train which stops agitation. Action of a lift screw within the clutch assembly lifts the transmission clear of the brake plate and causes a gradual torque action of the disc clutch, starting the transmission and tub in spin rotation.

At the completion of the spin phase, the timer turns the motor off, causing the lift screw to lower the transmission into contact with the brake friction disc. The resulting friction stops the spin action.

28. MOTOR DRIVE

a. Description (Fig. 35). The motor shaft is equipped with a double pulley - - one groove accommodating a V-belt to the main drive pulley; the other, a round elastic belt to the pump. Belt tension for the main drive is adjusted by swinging the motor in the base slots. Pump belt is elastic and is self-adjusting.

b. Main Drive Belt Adjustment.

(1) Tilt the machine backwards and • brace at a 45 0 angle. In this position, the tub falls against the rear wall of the collector tank.

(2) Loosen conelok nuts (Fig. 35).

(3) With finger pressure midway between pulleys, adjust as shown in Fig. 36.

(4) Tighten nuts.

c. Main Drive Belt Replacement. Remove pump belt. It will stretch sufficiently for easy removal. Main drive V-belt easily removed by slipping it off at main drive pulley.

d. Pump Belt Replacement. See "c" above.

29. GEAR TRAIN

a. Description. The gear train comprises a segment gear (1) (Fig. 37), a main drive gear (2),

a connecting rod (3) and an eccentric (4). A spring

(5) and friction plug (6) are assembled within the eccentric as a backlash dampener.

This assembly is housed in the lower half of the transmission case (Fig. 39).

b. Removal and Disassembly.

(1) Remove front panel and cabinet top (Par. 10).

(2) Remove spinner tub assembly (Par. 12a).
Page 21:

Figure 38

(3) Remove six 1/2" h ex head cap screws which secure top to lower half of transmission case. These screws come up from lower half of transmission housing.

(4) Lift off top half of transmission and discard gasket.

(5) Remove gear train by lifting upward. Caution should be exercised when removing eccentric from connecting rod to avoid losing spring (5) and friction plug

(6) (Fig. 37).

(6) If transmission is to be removed, see Paragraph 15a (4) and (5).

c. Reassembly and Replacement.

(1) When reassembling the eccentric to the main drive gear, be sure the single lug of the eccentric is located as shown

in Fig. 38. If this eccentric is not properly positioned on the main drive gear, a very short agitation stroke will result.

(2) Replace in reverse order of b above, using a new transmission gasket.

NOTE: Transmission case contains 3-3/4 pints of SAE No. 20 motor oil. Proper oil level is approximately 1/16" below gasket.

Figure 40

30. CLUTCH ASSEMBLY

SECTION VI. TROUBLE SHOOTING

40. GENERAL

Blackstone washers are designed to operate with minimum service. Nevertheless, careless operation, misuse and failure to follow recommended laundering procedures will ultimately cause malfunction and unsatisfactory operation. This section lists the various failures most apt to occur and will assist the serviceman in diagnosing and correcting the trouble.

Since rather elaborate test equipment is required to test a timer, the serviceman should check out all other "probable causes" first. If the timer is isolated as the cause of malfunction, then replace it.

When the transmission is suspected as a trouble cause, remember its basic function is to provide agitation, spinning and braking. Malfunctions can usually be detected by visual or audible inspection. When trouble is suspected, run the machine through a complete cycle, observing whether or not agitation, spin and braking occur at the proper time. Also listen for unusual noises which might indicate damaged or broken gears, damaged main drive pulley or defective bearings. If machine fails to reach full spin speed in 50 seconds, check for the following malfunctions:

(1) worn clutch facings ( Fig. 42), (2) defective lift screw ( Fig. 42), ( 3) loose main drive belt (Fig. 36), (4) defective support shaft bearing (Fig. 48), (5) missing Truarc snap ring under ball bearing ( Fig. 48), and ( 6) defective motor or timer.

If machine fails to brake to a full stop at the end of the spin cycle in 30 to 35 seconds, look for defective friction disc ( 3) (Fig. 43) or defective lift screw.

If machine fails to agitate, check for the following malfunctions: (1) defective gear train,

(2) seized agitator shaft bearings, (3) stripped serrations on agitator shaft, (4) agitator slipping on clutch gear, and (5) defective motor or timer.

Following are other probable causes and possible remedies for various malfunctions.

41. WATER DOES NOT ENTER TUB

Probable Cause No power to machine.

Water not turned on.

Defective water valve.

Open circuits.

Defective timer.

42. TUB DOES NOT FILL

Probable Cause Low water pressure.

Possible Remedy Check plug and circuit to receptacle.

Check water supply.

Check water valve (Par. 23). If defective, repair as needed or replace.

Check for defective wiring and/or loose connections at terminals. Repair as needed. Replace timer (See Pars. 17, 18 and 40).

Possible Remedy

Since all Blackstone washers employ a "timed" fill, the amount of water entering the tub during the fill cycle depends on the local water pressure. Start the washer and observe the water level at completion of fill. It should be approximately level with the top of the agitator fins. If too low, accurately measure water depth from bottom of tub and advise the factory. The factory service department will compute the deficiency and supply
Page 29:

Plugged water valve strainers.

a calibrated flow washer to correct the local pressure problem.

On Model BA 750, which recirculates, water must overflow into the collector tank during the initial fill. To detect a water deficiency in this model check the amount of water being recirculated.

If it is a full stream, sufficient water is entering the tub. If only a partial stream is observed, machine is starved for water and a flow washer to increase the water input is in order. The flow washer is installed in the outlet side of the water valve described in Par. 23. Simply replace the standard washer with a new one supplied by the factory.

Clean screens ( Par. 23 a).

43. WATER TEMPERATURE DOES NOT CORRESPOND WITH CONTROL SETTINGS
