Super Savertime-energy-water

Milnor’s 60 lb. capacity model 30022 VRJ provides three ways to save: time, energy and water. That’s good for our environment. And great for you.

Milnor’s E-P Plus® controller has pre-programmed wash formulas built right in to save you time. You can modify formulas or create and save up to 30 of your own. Our extra-large cylinder perforation means linens end the cycle retaining less moisture, speeding up dryer times to save energy. Save water with Milnor’s RinSave® Water Saver technology. The VRJ can even fit through a standard 3’-0” door, which simplifies installation and saves space. That’s even more savings. Super!

Ed Tips

Service Tips By Ed

Drain Valve Problems

Most Huebsch and Milnor washers use a Dependo Brand normally open drain valve.

This valve powers closed when the washer had power. When it is time to drain the machine takes power off the drain valve motor and a spring opens the valve allowing water to flow out by gravity. So if the machine loses power, the washer will empty.

Drain Valve stuck open or some water leaking out during cycle: Check voltage; check ball valve for debris caught in drain valve; clean the drain valve; check seal or replace drain valve; check for blockages in drain after drain valve. Be sure drain valve is not hard plumbed to final drain pipe or trough as it is an item that needs service.

Drain valve stuck closed: Check voltage; clean the ball valve; clean drain hose or replace drain valve.

Drain error: Run control through diagnostics; check drain hoses; check drain valve or replace drain valve.
