About the Smart Chip on the Card: The value is stored on the actual “Smart Chip” on your card, and it is important not to lose the chip if it comes off your card. Value still on your chip can only be retrieved and refunded if you have the actual chip! Please note there is nothing WASH Laundry Systems or Westmont College can do to restore value if you have lost the smart chip.

The AVS accepts $5, $10, and $20 bills. It does not accept $1 bills, and they can jam the machine!
There is an additional AVS at the Ocean View Apartments. This AVS takes all credit cards and takes debit cards with a VISA or MasterCard logo. The Ocean View AVS does NOT accept cash.
Checking your balance: You can also check the balance on your card on any AVS, washer, or dryer, simply by inserting your card. The maximum value you can store on your card is $50. The machine will not add value if the bill you insert would take you above that maximum, and will return the bill instead.
Washers are front-loading and require liquid detergent. High Efficiency detergents with the h-e logo are best. Whatever liquid detergent you use, you can use 1/4 to 1/2 of the amount the package says to and your laundry will come out great while you save money!
