Equator EZ3720CEEP

by Jaro

RANK #9:

Equator appliances promise to be innovative, practical, top-quality appliances that save time, space, energy and reduce pollutants, so let’s have a look at one of their appliances. Already at the first look I can tell that the design overall is pretty different style than other brands. I would say it’s pretty simplistic, no LCD, nothing, just a few buttons. Again, it depends on what you prefer, to me a nice, if possible big, LCD screen showing me exactly what’s happening is a must when looking to buy most devices – not just washers. I just like to have things under control and know exactly what’s going on over there inside.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a video review for this model of the washer dryer combo.
Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Small size.
  • Energy efficient – saves money on energy and water bills.
  • Easy to install, easy to use.
  • It’s ventless and uses condensation to make the vapour release its moisture and be pumped out along with cold water used for this purpose.
  • Uses little water.
  • Self cleaning lint filter.
Negatives:
  • Lack of dry programs.
  • No child lock.
  • No LCD panel – that means no popular functions like washer/dryer count down, specific signals, etc.
Negatives common to all combos:
  • There is no exterior lint trap for the dryer. The lint tends to collect around the rubber seal and you have to empty that once a month depending on the frequency of use.
  • The clothes need to be free to tumble in order to dry completely. Fill only half of the drum if you’re going to use the dry function.
  • Noisy water pump that expels the water from the machine – although active only intermittently during the wash and rinse cycle.
  • Produces a bit of heat.

Reviews and Prices:
Here you can find and compare user comments and prices from different online stores. Just a small advice – if you find a lot of positive reviews and some negative ones, it usually means that the complaining people don’t use the machine properly, or received some defective piece.

Conclusion: For the cost of this washer dryer combo, I would expect a machine with a lot more functions, an lcd display and better design.
