INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your new Equator Washer-Dryer. In addition to its award winning
design, this is a highly sophisticated engineered product that will give you many
years of satisfaction.
Here are 10 of the best reasons for buying your Equator Washer-Dryer
1.
Energy Savings
This appliance is engineered to provide valuable energy savings when compared to
other washer-dryers.
2. Maintenance
Since the machine has a self-cleaning pump, this appliance needs no cleaning of lint
after drying. Instead, there is a convenient coin trap.
3. Water Savings
This appliance uses little water for washing and drying (EZ 3720), far less than a
standard full-size top-loading washer.
4. Improved Operation
With a high spin speed, more water is extracted, allowing improved dry times.
5. Convenience
This appliance can be permanently installed and be made portable with the installation
of the portability kit (sold separately) where needed.
6. Combined Washing & Drying
No need for two separate machines for two tasks and no more transferring clothes from
one to the other. Program the Washer-Dryer and you have a two-in-one.
7. Better Clothing Appearance
This Washer-Dryer has no agitator to damage your clothes so they look better and last
longer.
8. Placement Options
The Washer-Dryer’s sleek design makes it a perfect appliance for any Kitchen or
Laundry Room. Its compact size makes the Washer-Dryer perfect for placement on
each floor of your home.
9. Easy Operation
This appliance is simple to use as a washer or as a dryer – or it can go seamlessly from
wash to the dry functions.
10. Space Savings
By combining the two functions of washer and dryer in one unit, the space taken for the
second unit, i.e. separate dryer, is saved.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your safety and that of you children
Your washing machine has been built in compliance with safety regulations, to
protect you and all your family.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when
using your appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2. Do not wash or dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable or explosive substances, as they emit vapors
that could ignite or explode.
3. Do not allow children to play on or in the appliance. Close supervision of children is necessary
when the appliance is used near children.
4. Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door.
5. Do not reach into the appliance if the tub or drum is moving.
6. Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.
7. Do not tamper with controls.
8. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or in published user-repair instructions that
you understand and have skills to carry out.
9. Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the
wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
10. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not
been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has
not been used for such a period, before using a washing machine or combination washer-dryer,
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated Hydrogen.
11. Do not use fabric softeners or products to reduce static unless recommended by the
manufacturers of the fabric softener product.
12. Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like
materials.
13. Check the Coin Trap every few months to remove any coins, buttons or similar size objects.
14. For vented washer-dryers keep the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from
accumulation of lint, dust, and dirt.
15. Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Item contaminated with cooking oils
may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.

Combo Washer-Dryer Owner’s Manual
HELPFUL HINTS
•
Your Washer-Dryer spins at a high speed, which will extract more water especially from
absorbent fabrics and reduce the degree of dampness as the machine goes into the drying mode.
This will cut down on your drying time.
•
Use Liquid Fabric Softener. Fill the softener compartment up to the level marked. Using fabric
softener fluffs out clothes immediately after the wash cycle. This helps speed drying time and
reduces wrinkles.
•
This Washer-Dryer is a 110 Volt machine, so the heating element requires more time to achieve
full heat than a larger 220 volt unit requires. The heating element will take about 10 minutes to
reach full heat.
•
To dry your laundry, the Washer-Dryer blows heated air into the rotating drum. As the drum
tumbles your laundry, the warm air dries it. If the drum is overfilled with laundry, the air is not
allowed to circulate and clothes will not dry properly.
•
Use High Efficiency (HE) Detergent. This is recommended for all front loading washers. It
ensures there is no over sudsing, which may reduce the performance of your machine. Also, this
prevents damage to your machine which may be caused by excess suds entering the condensing
chamber [EZ 3720 CEE] and clogging the fan blower mechanism [EZ 3720 CEE/EZ 1720 V] with
lint. If you have any problem obtaining High Efficiency (HE) detergent, please order Equator HE
detergent available online at www.equatorappliances.com.
•
When sorting laundry always take into consideration the quantity and type of fabric contained in
the load. Highly absorbent fabrics such as those used in towels or jeans will absorb more water
and become very heavy when saturated. If you notice that your clothes are taking longer than
usual to dry you may be overloading the machine, or washing too many highly absorbent articles
for a single load.
DRYER EFFICIENCY
Your Washer-Dryer operates on 120 volts. It will take a longer time to dry clothes than a traditional
dryer (which operates on 220 volts). However, with the following tips, you can increase the efficiency
of the dryer.
1. FABRIC SOFTENER: After the wash cycle, the clothes can get stuck to the sides of the drum.
USING LIQUID FABRIC SOFTENER WILL CAUSE THE CLOTHES TO UNSTICK IMMEDIATELY
AND TUMBLE IN THE DRY CYCLE. THIS HELPS DRY CLOTHES FASTER AND CAUSES LESS
WRINKLES.
2. OVERLOADING: The drum has a capacity of 14 lbs (1.90 cu. ft.) While this unit has one of the
largest drum available on any combination washer-dryer, it is smaller than a standard U.S. washer.
The EZ 3720 CEE/EZ 1720 V drum should not be overloaded. With too many clothes, airflow is
reduced, increasing drying time. The drum should be filled to a maximum 2/3rd full.
3. OVER DRYING: [EZ 3720 CEE] uses a condensing dryer. In this cold water is used to condense
the moisture from the hot air. Since there is no external exhaust system, the moisture remains in the
machine. Frequently, when it seems the clothes are damp, it is actually the remaining moisture (like
dew). Take clothes out and within a few minutes they will be dry. Do not over-dry the clothes.
4. USE HIGH EFFICIENCY (HE) DETERGENT: By using High Efficiency (HE) detergent (Equator
brand or any other), you are preventing suds from entering the condensing chamber [EZ 3720 CEE].
When suds enter the condensing chamber, lint particles can clog up the chamber and the fan blower
[EZ 3720 CEE/EZ 1720 V]. Over time, this reduces drying efficiency and may require the fan blower
(impeller) to be cleaned. For this and all other front-loading/horizontal-axis units, High Efficiency
(HE) detergents go a long way to improve the efficiency of the units.

WINTERIZING YOUR WASHER-DRYER
To winterize your Washer-Dryer please, follow the instructions below to avoid damage
to your unit due to freezing:
1. With the unit off, remove wash filter. This will allow the water remaining in the pump and
drain hose to be evacuated. Replace filter.
2. Close the inlet shut-off valves (provided by installer) and disconnect the inlet
hoses. There should be no water in the hoses where they attach at the back of the
machine.
IF ANTIFREEZE IS BEING USED IN THE SYSTEM FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:
(not necessary if the above drain procedure is followed)
1. When putting antifreeze into the water system of your coach, set the washer to the NORMAL
wash setting and allow water to flow into unit until antifreeze is detected.
2. Turn off Power. Advance the washer knob to the “Rinse” position and allow water to flow for 10
seconds.
3. Turn off Power. Advance the washer knob on “Spin” to remove the majority of the water
from the unit.
4. Turn off Power. With the unit off, remove coin trap from the unit. This will allow the water
remaining in the pump and drain hose to be evacuated. Replace coin trap.
5. If you elect you may close the inlet shut-off valves (provided by installer) and disconnect the
inlet hoses.
6. Any water remaining in the unit should contain antifreeze and be protected from freezing.
Note: When placing unit into service allow unit to operate for one complete cycle before
doing laundry to ensure all antifreeze has been purged from the unit.

MAINTENANCE
Your Equator Washer-Dryer has been designed to operate with easy maintenance.
Follow these simple maintenance procedures to obtain optimum performance:
1. Ensure that your machine was installed according to the correct installation procedures
detailed in this Manual.
2. Do not use solvents either to clean the machine or to wash clothes.
3. Keep the inside of the detergent dispenser clean;
4. The drain pump of this Washer-Dryer is a self-cleaning pump. It is therefore not
necessary to carry out cleaning and maintenance operations. However, objects (such as
buttons, coins, etc) may sometimes accidentally drop into the pump. Since these can’t be
expelled through the drain hose, please remove the cover panel at the bottom of the unit
by holding down on the small tab and pulling the cover down (Fig. 8), remove the pump
cover, and carefully inspect the inside. (Fig.9). Be sure to close the cover after cleaning.
The tab should be gently pulled up until you hear a click.
