I love my little washing machine
My little machine arrived this afternoon - and I've been doing laundry like crazy since! It works like a dream. The clothes come out very clean, in no time at all - I've only used 5-6 minutes agitation per wash, and that has been more than sufficient. The little spinner is small, true, but it works very well. Generally you can do one load in two spins, so it's not that bad.
Great alternative for delicates
This is a great little machine for washing small items (full cycle runs for 35 minutes). One load can take 4-5 T-shirts with a couple of personal items like undergarments or socks (basically, about a day's load of clothes). It has three rinse cycles and gets the detergent out completely. As the description says, it does not have a spin cycle so clothes remain wet. I use it with a laundry alternative spin dryer that wrings out all the water.
We love this machine. We live in New York City in a 5th floor walk-up apartment, and this machine has been great for us. We feel foolish for not having bought this a lot sooner.
Setting it up is easy. You just affix the dampener on the bottom and then connect the hoses. It took about 20 minutes from the time of opening the box to having it ready for a test run. Have pliers, a wrench, a screwdriver, and a level handy.
Lifts stains better than some full-size machines
If you hate lugging clothes to a laundry room or laundromat, consider making a small investment in the Haier HLP23E. It's easily found on sale for under $250, and it does a really good job lifting stains. Expect to notice its presence on your electric and water bills, however.
All features and capabilities fully loaded
The Haier HLP23E has gotten some attention in 2012 owing to some top ratings around the net. Although this reviewer feels it cuts just a little too close to the price of a full-sized washer, there is no denying that it's a quality model. With a 1.5 cu. ft. capacity, easy sink connector, LED display, 4 wash cycles, and 6 programs, it is essentially just a tiny washer, with all features and capabilities fully loaded.
Too small, doesn't get clothes clean or dry
This product will only wash a very small amount. If I attempted to wash any of my husband's clothing I could only wash up to 2 shirts at a time. It takes a lot of force to try and do the spinning on this and the clothes don't get clean enough. If you have a stain on something you'll have to wash the item in the sink so you can scrub at the stain as this device will not remove it.
