How do you unclog the drain hose on the Equator EZ3600?
Water practically dribbles out during the spin cycle. I checked the filter and there was hardly anything there. I figure the hose might be clogged. But it came already attached to the machine. Do I just pull it out? Is there a tool? How do I check for the clog?
Re: How do you unclog the drain hose on the Equator...
You need to open the back and unscrew the clamp to take the drain hose off. if you are lucky, that is the problem. there is another hose that could be clogged between the filter and the pump which is more difficult to get to. or it may be that the pump needs to be disassembled and cleaned to get rid of any obstructions. or you may need to replace the pump entirely. service for these appliances is rather expensive...at least in ny. good luck.

SUDS error = SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE) If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again. If too much detergent was used: - Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle. - Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. 1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 6. Check drain pump. 7. Check the pressure switch. 8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle. F35 error = ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE If this failure is displayed, there is any malfunction of the steamer component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board. 1. Check if pressure hose is fi xed correctly. 2. Check if the airtrap is not blocked. 3. Check if the hose is not blocked.
check the small drain hose on the side of the pump that is clogged, then that is not a failure that will significantly affect the normal operation of the washer. If your washer is not draining okay and you don't mind catching some water that spills out of that pump filter area when you open it up, then you don't necessarily need to remove that front panel and bother with unclogging that small drain hose. If the large hose between the tub and the pump or the discharge hose between the pump and the house drain behind the washer is clogged, then you may need to open up that cabinet.

Does it go into high speed spin? If it does and there is still water than check to see if the filter or hoses are clogged. The hoses the run from your basket to the pump and the drain hose too. A washer is only given so much time to drain all the water. Most of the time the filter or coin trap hose is clogged. If everything is clear u may have a weak pump.
Try looking to see if the little motor is spinning the drain pump. It is in the bottom right. Occasionally I get a small metal shard which locks the pump and therefore-no draining. You can undo everything and check the pump for blockage. Then if need be, replace the mechanisim. The parts are all on line, as is the manual. or call 800 776-3538
That's the way it works, kinda stupid, it would be good if it did that at first to loosen up clothes in case they're stuck to the drum but then move like a traditional dryer but that's just the way it is. BTW, here's a website with parts for it in case you need them. I never used them but just found them, I was lucky I never had any problems with my equator until now but I kinda can live with it (during rinse cycles it pumps water out but then when it does the short spins it does not, so rinsing is not as effective sinse it leaves a lot of dirty water in and then puts fresh water in and does it again, it does pump the water out during the final spin cycle though). Anyways, good luck. I bought mine in 2001 or 2002 and never had any problems except for the one I mentioned.
Hi Yes I fixed it myself! lol I just tried every combo of wires that there was, and it is working gr8! Ty so much though, for having a site like this! I even called the Equator company and they could.n't tell me! Again it is fixed and thank so much! Rose
Your machine won't go into spin cycle most probably because it awaits for pump to start extracting water out of the basket. If the "Door Locked" light is on th an it means that either filter, pump or drain hose are clogged (unless pump burned). Turn off machine, unplug the machine, clean the filter, check for foreign objects inside filter and pump housing and finally check/unclog the drain hose.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. (consult your manual to know where/how filter is cleaned). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
