Question about GE Hardware & Accessories
The switch is installed on the load side with the jumper on the line side and the light will work with on auto and over riden with the GE switch but not the remote line side switch.
Always clear digital timer programming using reset button.
Copy following link to double-check wiring is correct:
Scroll down and look at each of the three 3-way illustration, Line side, load side, without neutral.
Here's how the timer works for 3-way:
When the red wire receives power, it reverses the timer programming of on-becomes-off or off-becomes-on.
So the purpose of the remaining 3-way switch is to connect-or-disconnect power to timer red wire >> this causes the 3-way effect.
Basically the remaining 3-way switch is converted into a simple on-off switch by using only one of the brass screws, and the dark screw.
So one of the brass screws on the remaining 3-way switch has no wire connected to it. It makes no difference which of the two brass screws is selected.
Add a comment as needed.
This timer has 1 year limited warranty through jasco, or just buy another one from Home Depot and return defect in new package.

SOURCE: i installed a woods indoor
Woods 58018 is White-colored 120Volt 7-day programmable timer that replaces single-pole switch only.
I am not certain what is meant by 3-pole circuit.
If you mean 3-way circuit where more than one switch control same light, as you find with hallway light, then 59018 is not correct timer.
Open following links to see list of timers suited for 3-way switch replacement.
Timers that work for 3-way do not replace 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
Read manual carefully.
When you replace 3-way switch with a timer, one 3-way switch is replaced, and other 3-way switch remains.
The remaining 3-way switch is always rewired so the 3-way timer works. AND each brand of timer requires slightly different wiring parameter.
Some 3-way timers can only replace the 3-way switch located closest to circuit breaker box, commonly called the LINE side. Others can replace either LINE side or LOAD side 3-way., and wiring is different for each. Some timers require neutral wire and some are battery-powered.
Add a comment with exact information about switch and wiring you are working on for suggestion of best timer for that purpose.
