How to reset the machine

Reset Procedure for Equator / Hirundo ( EZ3612CEE / EZ2512CEE / EZ1612V )
If the door of the machine is opening you can follow the below reset procedure so that the machine will function properly but if the door in your machine is not opening you need to first get the door to open by following the procedure as stated in the link http://www.fixya.com/support/r4240518-door_not_opening_in_equator_hirundo
Resting the unit will make sure that all the memory storage in the chip will be erased and hence the unit will be ready for a new cycle.

Equator Washer dryer combo......door wont open. Finished a funky cycle drained but wont open? :(


You will have to follow the drain out procedure and then the reset procedure.
Please see the link :http://www.fixya.com/support/r4240518-door_not_opening_in_equator_hirundo

Be careful, if you try to open the door by pulling the door handle too hard it may break.
Do let me know if this resolves the problem or else I may suggest something else.

My equator EZ 2512 CEE washer/dryer suddenly wont finish washing a load of laundry. I think some sort of drain pump may be broken. The door will not unlock. I took the drain hose out and put it on the floor and it started draining all over my kitchen. When I tried to put it in a bucket to drain into the door still would not unlock. and now I have broken the door handle trying to open it. :(


If you are still looking for a solution to this here it is:
In these machines if you try to change the setting of the washer knob without letting a cycle finish which is already set it may happen that the unit won't function properly and hence the unit needs to be reseted. There is a reset procedure for the same and let me know if you would like have the same.
If the door is not opening it is advisable to reset the unit first and then try opening the door which should work and also the door handle won't break then.
If you have already replaced the door handle on your machine it is fine or else you may want to order the same from appliancedesk.com

i need a diagram of an Equator EZ3612CEE door


While you may have removed the door with the hinges from the cabinet the nuts may have fallen down on the unit.
You may want to open the back panel or the bottom panel and try searching for the same, in case you need assistance mounting the bracket back on the cabinet once you have the nuts do let me know.
