Question about Equator EZ 3600 CEE Front Load Washer / Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer cycle doesn't dry on Equator EZ3600 CEE

The wash cycle works fine and cloths felt at the end of the cycle are relatively dry from the high speed spin. After the dry cycle they are wet again. If the cold water is turned off the cloths will dry from the electric heat(takes a long time). If the cold water is left on at a low flow rate the cloths will dry normally. I know that this unit has a condensing dryer that runs on cold water. Where is the condenser and what controls the water level in it or the flow rate to it? This unit sits in an unheated camp(below freezing) for the winter. Ever attempt is made to get the water out of it before winter but am not sure I am always successful.

Any help would be appreciated.

    My ez 3600 front load has the same problem. I think the cold water inlet valve is stuck open, because if i don't shut off cold water supply, washer tub will fill with water. Anyone know where I can order the inlet valves?

It's lint stuck in the dryer that drastically lowers the efficiency.
From another site I found the solution:
  
1. UNPLUG UNIT
2, remove 4 screws top back edge of top panel and lift off panel.
3. blower will be toward the right rear of unit. To save a hassle later, take a sharp object and scrib an index mark across where the blower meets the plenum, it will help you line it up later.
4. there are four 7mm bolt-head screws holding the blower and blower motor onto the heater plenum. One of the screw is almost impossible to see, but there are 4. I used a "flex-shaft" socket to get them out. This can be a real PITA.
5. carefully lift blower motor out of plenum. You will probably need to shove the whole tub unit to the left to get clearence. IF YOU OPT TO DISCONNECT THE BLOWER WIRES MAKE A DIAGRAM OF WHERE THEY CONNECT!!
6. I usually use a thin knife to scrape each of the vanes on the blower. Then vac everything out and use your hand to check for smutz in the plenum.
7. THE FAN ONLY FITS ONE WAY ON THE PLENUM. be sure to test fit to see if all the holes line up.
8. When motor is back in place, spin the little cooling fan on top of motor to make sure it's not binding. I usually test the unit by plugging it in and starting dryer to make see it runs.
9. Put top of unit back in place.

Go to  http://www.appliancedesk.com/appliancedesk/service/CWD/EZ3600CEE_EZ3600C_EZ2500C_EZ1500/Service_Manual.pdf
on page 17-18 it shows how to identify the impeller.  remove the impeller, clean out the lint and return the impeller to its place. that should solve your problem. the impeller it tricky to remove, particularly the screws but once cleaned the dryer will work like new.  you may find you need to clean the impeller out every yr or maybe more to keep it drying well.

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.

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.
