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.
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.
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.
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.
Newer Dumber Technology
These new washing machines are a consumers worst nightmare due to the drastic changes manufacturers have made. The worst is that you cannot lift the lid for any reason, to do so causes the machine to stop. Forget the days of watching the agitator in action. Is it working, who knows? Maybe if they put a glass or even plexiglass window on the lid so you could look in to see if it's working would make it a more tolerable experience.
Very good budget selection
The GE GTWP1800DWW is primarily carried by Best Buy stores, and is one of their lowest priced in-store washers. It's easy to order, and retails at $479.99 (but often is on sale for much less). It comes with 3.7 cu. ft. and 12 wash cycles, but performs a little poorer in energy efficiency. Saving money in the long term is not something this GE is designed for, but it will take a pretty big chunk off the purchase price.
No frills top-loader
The Whirlpool WTW4800XQ is another model that skims along around the $450 price range. 3.4 cu. ft. of capacity, 8 cycles, and 4 temperature settings outline this no frills top-loader. Excellent user reviews accompany this model, and paint it as a well-built option for those looking to save a few dollars. A quiet spin technology does a little to dampen sound.
Good High Efficiency Washer but Much Louder than Expected
This machine gets my clothes clean, uses less water, detergent, and electricity than my last machine and has a huge basket. The basket does not fill all the way but I have ran some pretty big loads and have not noticed any spotting or problems with my clothes. The power rinse option seems to compensate for not filling the basket all the way. My preferred setting is the manual fill Super Load, with cold water for colors and warm for whites and I always use the PowerRinse option.
Awesome washer....Love it!!!
I've had this washer since early December 2011 when it first became available in the United States. It has all the features I need: narrow width, low height, controls in the front, not in the back (for a shorter reach), hot and cold water standard washer hook-ups, stainless steel tub, a bi-fold lid (because I have it right under my stacked clothes dryer and have limited vertical clearance) and most importantly an agitator.
