  • Equator leads the way with great machine!

    Apr 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Washes effectively, quiet operation, compact size, highly efficient in water & energy use
    Cons: Front loaders don't allow you to add items once wash cycle has begun

    Summary: After using the same top-loading Maytag washer for 17 years, I'm very pleased with the Equator. Having only had the unit for 2 months now, I will reserve judgement on the maintenance aspect--so far no complaints. Our Maytag machine was still running ... read more

    Pros: Ventless and small.
    Cons: Construction, customer service, quality control, durability and bang for the buck.

    Summary: I purchased the Equator 3600 CEE a few years ago. It worked fine for a couple months and then it stopped draining. It was still under warranty, so they replaced the drain motor. That seemed to fix the problem, temporarily. Soon after, the machine ... read more

    Pros: Better for the environment, small, ventless. Perfect for apartments.
    Cons: Breaks down frequently, can't handle a lot of clothes, clothes come out so deeply wrinkled.

    Pros: Washes and dryers cloths. Small. Efficient.

    Cons: Small capacity, shakes, doesn't dry, can't open after it starts, it breaks, can't be repaired.

    Summary: What a nightmare! This has to be the single most useless appliance I have ever owned - and I have owned a lot. Like others who wrote about this machine, I was attracted to it by the promise of energy efficiency, low water consumption and, of course, the ... read more

    Pros: None when deemed worthless after 4 years of use, and $1000 price.
    Cons: Breaks easily. No repair center ANYWHERE! Dryer NOT drying. Technical support clueless. Low quality overall.

    Summary: We bought the Equator EZ 3600 CEE 4 years ago because our home had only 110V outlet and no vent for the dryer. We also had very small space to fit it into. Even though the reviews said the dryer does not dry completely and it dries a load smaller than ... read more

    Pros: Energy efficient, water efficient, impressive quiet performance
    Cons: A bit pricey

    Summary: In the US, this is one of the best washers, as far as I'm concerned. Rated in the top 5 for energy efficiency, it also doubles as a drier. As long as you load it properly, it hums along quietly even as it spins @ 800+ RPM. The real ... read more
