Marathon machines come in two models —
the Marathon Model X and the Marathon Model LT.
Both models are the same size, offer identical washing performance, and both have the unique Marathon touch-screen features.
Above on the left is a standard 4-prong 240 volt dryer plug. This is what powers the Model X, with a 5400W heating element, the same as the best U.S. electric dryers.
Pictured on the right is a standard 3-prong 120 volt plug, which powers the Model LT — less drying power, but it can be located much more easily in your home, in places where there may not be a dryer outlet.
This machine is full-size, unlike most of the combo machines on the market that are 20% smaller. That means it has more than enough room, even for king size bedding.
The Model X uses 240-volt power, using a standard 4-plug dryer cord (NEMA 14-30 240v). These dryer outlets are located in most laundry rooms that support electric dryers.
This machine features a Quad-core ARM CPU, a gigabyte of main memory, embedded Linux, and a multi-touch screen.
Our flagship, The Marathon Model X is our most powerful, full-featured machine.
The Model X is a full-sized (27") washer-dryer combo that uses standard hookups, offering powerful washing and drying that outperforms most other machines.
Note: If your home does not have 240 volt hookups for an electric dryer, you can still use the Marathon Model LT with your washer hookups!
The Marathon Model LT offers economy performance and doesn't require a four-prong dryer cord.
It uses only 120 volts rather than the 240 volts required by the Model X, which means it uses the same 3-pronged cord as most of the lamps and toasters in your home.
The standard 120 volt power cord (NEMA 5-20 120v) provides much more flexibility in placement — you can practically put it anywhere.
Note: You will still need water hookups and a drain, and a place to vent the machine.
