Question about Equator EZ 1612 V Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Washer quit after smoking

The equator was great when working but after coming back from overseas for a year, it started to smoke (electrical) and now won't even light the front lights. this was on the third load; the first two loads ran fine. some water in drum, drained and found no obstructions. can't troubleshoot electronics because the power light won't come on. there is power to the outlet. can dissect a regular old washer, but this electronic washer/dryer combo is beyond my experience. also, can't find any good help for this brand in our neck of the woods (oregon, 40 miles outside of Portland) any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Are you supposed to put water in the water bowl every time you smoke meat?


Not necessarily. It depends on what you're smoking. Some meats require moisture or they will dry out. Pork is one that quickly comes to mind, as does white meat fish. However, something like beef jerky, no you do not need water. And then, there are times you can add flavor to meat by using a dark beer instead of water Really good for smoking Baby Back Ribs.. The beer should be at room temperature before using.

There are some great websites that great smoking recipes. Just do a Google search for smoking meat, pork fish, etc. Or search for "How to use a smoker."

Hope this helps you come up with some great smoke food.

My wife noticed smoke right after starting the washer. She immediately turned it off and called me. I noticed a smoke smell which smelled more electrical than rubber. The basket spins easily. The washer...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. There are a few things that you can check. First, check your belt. It may have worn or the pulley may be sticking. The belt may be causing the smoke. You might want to check your control board just in case and see if you see any damaged wires. You need to try and see if the washer throws out any error codes. I really don't know what else you could check because there are no symptoms. It could have come from the water pump or the motor drive also.

No electrical power at all.


Did it burn the belt off the alternator? If not, try to jump start the car and then test the alternator.

Smoking


Couple things I would look for first the condition of the blade do you see any buildup around the teeth like something has burnt on it. Also look into the area around the blade under the table (unplug saw first) to make sure that something hasn't dropped into it rubbing blade causing smoke. Also turn the blade by hand to make sure turning freely. The smoke could possibly be coming from a bearing. If it less than a year old Bosch has a pretty good warranty and you might look into that also. Let me know and I will dig deeper into it.
