One essential feature of the best washer dryer combos is a unit’s ability to function without causing too much noise, especially in family homes. The Equator EZ 4400N has been designed with quietness in mind, meaning you could even operate it at night if you needed to. Although it’s a smaller model, the Equator EZ 4400N has plenty of handy features packed in, and it comes with a reasonable price tag too. 

Equator EZ 4400N washer dryer: Features

The Equator EZ 4400N has many of the essential features of the top washer dryers. It’s compact in size, making it the perfect appliance for smaller homes or apartments, and is also equipped with a ‘Quiet Mode’, which promises to operate at no louder than 60 decibels, the volume of an average conversation. It also has a convertible drying system, so you can choose between venting or condensing, which is great if you can’t quite decide which option would work best for you. You can choose from 14 different wash cycles to cater to plenty of different materials, as well as being able to select singular wash or dry cycles at a time. 

Ease of use is central to the Equator EZ 4400N; its simplified interface makes washing possible with the turn of a dial. The machine also has color-coded controls, which is great if you’re trying to do multiple loads in a busy family home. The Equator EZ 4400N is also equipped with smart sensors to detect the exact amount of water needed for your wash and run it accordingly. This makes the appliance not only economical but environmentally friendly too. Added safety features include a child lock setting, to ensure that inquisitive children can’t change the washer dryer’s settings as it runs. 

This Equator EZ 4400N is especially suited for those who need a washer dryer in their RV, as its small size makes it perfect to take on the road. Even better, it has a two-minute ‘Winterize’ mode, so you can close down the machine when it is not currently needed and not worry about damage to the pipes in your vehicle.

Equator EZ 4400N washer dryer: Size and dimensions

 

The Equator EZ 4400N’s small size makes it the perfect appliance for any home short on space. Its smaller dimensions mean that it would fit into most laundry rooms very comfortably. Such a small machine does mean there are compromises with capacity, as the maximum load is 13 pounds, which will mean extra washes for a large family. Therefore, this machine might be best suited for smaller families or two-person homes.

In terms of dimensions, the Equator EZ 4400N is 23.5 inches wide, 33.5 inches in height, and 22 inches deep. These dimensions are small, even for a washer-dryer, so consider this model if you’re tight on space. It’s always best to check these dimensions yourself against the space you have, as you don’t want to run into sizing issues after purchase.

In terms of installation, the Equator EZ 4400N requires you to connect hot and cold water hoses to your supply, in order for the convertible drying system to be effective. The user guide doesn’t specify any extra tools or materials needed for installation, so you should be able to do it yourself. As always, be sure to check the instructions on the manual provided to ensure the appliance is correctly installed.
