MASTER CONTROLS

8 Reset Button

This button cancels all push-button selections and stops washer operation. Use this button if you desire to reject a soak, wash, or extra rinse selection.

9 Time Control

The time control regulates the time for soaking and washing.

The time control is also the on-off control. To start the washer, pull out on the time control knob; to stop the washer push in on the time control knob.
Page 4:

NOTE: The washer will only operate if a soak,

wash, or extra rinse button is depressed.

When soaking, the power soak cycle will provide up to 5 minutes agitation followed by a 1-minute pause and 3 minute spin.

When washing, the regular cycle will provide up to 9 minutes agitation followed by a 1-minute pause, 4-minute spin with a power spray (1 minute), fill period, 3-minute rinse, 1-minute pause, and a 6-minute spin dry period. The agitation or wash time will be

reduced to 5 minutes when a short cycle is selected.

The extra rinse cycle provides 3 minutes agitation followed by a 1-minute pause and 5-minute spin dry period.

To make a SOAK, WASH, or EXTRA RINSE selection, push in on the time control knob and turn it clockwise until the desired cycle appears in the top window. The time to complete the cycle is shown in the bottom window. The time control may be advanced at any time to shorten the SOAK, WASH, RINSE, or SPIN periods. Always push in on the time control knob before advancing through periods.

IMPORTANT: Never turn the time control counterclockwise.

NOTE: The washer is designed to stop for a minute between the SOAK and SPIN periods, WASH and SPIN periods, and RINSE and SPIN DRY periods. This is a normal condition to allow the motor to stop before going into the next period.

10 Water Saver Control

The water saver control regulates the amount of water used for the SOAK, WASH, and RINSE periods. Once the water saver control is set, the water level will be the same for each fill unless the control setting is changed.

To save water, set the water saver control as follows:

FULL LOAD over tub of dry clothes

MED. LOAD. to tub of dry clothes

SMALL LOAD up to tub of dry clothes

NOTE: If you should select a SMALL LOAD setting and would like to add more water to the tub after the washer has stopped filling and is agitating, just turn the water saver control clockwise until the washer stops agitating and starts filling again with water.
Page 5:

11 Motor Protector Reset Switch

The motor protector reset switch protects the washer motor by cutting off the electricity if the line voltage is temporarily too low or if there is an electrical failure.

If the electricity has been cut off in this manner, push in on the time control knob and wait 2 to 3 minutes. Press and release the motor protector reset button and pull out on the time control knob to resume operation.

12 Light Button

Press and release this button to light the floodlamp on the back-splash.

NOTE: Keep the button depressed for at least 3 seconds to ensure proper lighting.

TRIPLE DUTY FILTER-DISPENSER

The triple duty filter-dispenser dispenses detergent or soap in the soak and wash water, and fabric softener in the rinse water; it also removes lint from the wash and rinse water.

To add washing compound, first remove the black dispenser cup; then pour the required amount of washing compound in the dispenser opening as shown in the illustration.

If liquid fabric softener is desired, pour the required amount (up to i/2 cup) into the black cup and replace it in the filter-dispenser.

NOTE: If you wish to dispense a powdered water softener, such as Calgon, in the RINSE period, mix the desired amount in water and then pour the solution into the black cup. Only liquids can be dispensed from the cup.

IMPORTANT: If you desire to soak followed by an automatic wash, pour liquid detergent, such as Wisk, in the black dispenser cup. This will automatically be dispensed in the wash water.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1918 Westinghouse Range Owners Manual
This is the oldest owners manual for any major appliance we have found up to this point. Westinghouse very first range was in 1914, so this is very early in the line. I can only imagine what housewives had to cook on before this range. This is a fascinating look at early range history. Even the writing style is completely different than what you'd see today by far!

Most women would like to cook if it did not require standing
over a hot stove. Planning a meal is not hard and mixing
various ingredients into the promise of delicious dainties or
preparing a roast for the oven is rather fun . But to be held
in the kitchen or even in the house during the long hours of
watchfulness is a different matter. And it is right here that
the Westinghouse electric range steps in and lifts the burden.

When the food has been prepared it may be trusted to
this silent servant with perfect confidence. There is no possibility
of instructions being forgotten or misunderstood . At
a given time, (the time decided upon,) the clock will turn on
the current and the meal will begin to cook. Again when just
the correct temperature has been reached in the oven, the thermostat
will turn the current off again and when madam enters
the kitchen after an afternoon of leisure or pleasure the meal
is ready to serve.

She herself is prepared to enjoy the meal equally as well
as any member of the family , because she has not had to think
about it since early morning.

Because the Westinghouse range reduces the labors of cooking
to the minimum, requiring no watching nor constant regulation
of heat, because it produces better food , and because
it is more economical, it will be in the kitchen of every modern .
progressive woman who is anxious to keep her family happy
and in good health. and yet does not wish to become a fixture
in the kitchen with its consequent limitations.
