i noticed there were not too many reviews on this product so i really wanted to review it. this is a really good machine but when i used it for the first time it had the new motor smell that some people confuse with a burning smell. if used correctly this machine is very efficient. the only thing i don't like about this machine is that the pipe is very low. you could put something underneath the feet of the machine to prop it up. also this machine had to be filled manually. i found a way around this by using a sink adapter in my bathroom and connecting it to a 4 ft washing machine hose. this worked really well for me. right now my biggest obstacle is the pipe because its so low you can empty most of the water in the tub but then you'll need something lower like a bucket to rid the machine of the rest of the remaining water. a spin dryer is a must for this product i already had a spin dryer so i didn't want a washer with spin, as i thought my dryer would go to waste. some people complain that the clothes get tangled together, but i think sticking to smaller loads, and putting enough water solves this problem mostly you still might have to untangle your clothes a bit. rinsing isnt that big of a deal, you just empty the water and repeat the wash process, it does a good job of rinsing. this machine is not for people not willing to do the work. if you want a machine that does everything for you then get a different machine.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the colors are accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. my opinion was the quality of the product was 3/5 stars
How accurate was the on site description of the product? the site description is 2/5 stars
The description is not clear. I dd not know I had to fill this by hand to wash and rinse, and did not know that it does not have a spin cycle!!!! Very disappointed as being handicapped, this is no use to me at all.
Next time if there will be one I will read ALL THE REVIEWS!!!!!!!! So sorry
And this was my first purchase here. No wonder I was nervous!!!

Thank you for your inquiry. We were able to verify with our support team. Unfortunately this item has not been given a decibel reading to determine exactly how loud it is. We were able to confirm it makes just about as much noise as a regular washing machine. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 21, 2013
I saw online it is made in USA, so I ordered one.
If it is made in China, I will return it back.
Must I pay for shipping, if I return it back (if made in China) ?lincoln2010ne on Nov 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
