Question about Equator EZ 3612 CEE Front Load Washer/Dryer

Open Question

Equator EZ3612 will not rotate or spin.

I just bought a used Equator EZ3612 CEE. First time trying it everything appeared to work - filled, rotated drum, emptied. After the rinse cycle started, I turned off the water supply at the sink.
Went out for a bit, came home and clothes steaming hot but wet. Had to wring out a pair of socks. Tried rewashing, this time leaving the water on during the entire cycle. Everything is working now except the drum won't tumble or spin during any cycle.
I followed the complete reset instructions and tried to wash another load. Drum still will not tumble or spin.
Help please?

SOURCE: Washer/Dryer not drying

is your dryer a conderser type
does it have a tank that you have to empty at the end of cycles
if it does the filter that condensers the water from drying cycle
if that is blocked it will not work

SOURCE: EZ 3612 CEE Water Not Draining Completely After Dry Cycle

ChicagoRandy,
You may be loading the washer with too many items. 8 pounds (wet) is the max for an Equator EZ3613 CEE. Mine would drain, but then wouldn't spin, leaving the clothes soaking wet. Here's what worked for me:
I turned it OFF, unplugged it for a while, emptied it of all items, plugged it back in, turned the dial to RESET, turned it ON and watched the Mode light flash quickly for a while, then watched it for over a minute, flashing about once a second, to ensure it really had reset itself. Then, I turned it OFF, turned dial to Cotton 1, turned it ON, and it performed the cycle properly when empty. When this strategy worked, it told me I had put too many items in it for it to spin.

SOURCE: EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times

Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.

Since you stated you are already using fabric softener, it sounds like you are over-drying your laundry. Try reducing the dry time and hang your clothes immediately.

Problems Drying Clothes


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.
