This is a cute washer, it sits perfectly in my bathroom of my tiny apartment. However, when I went to use it the first time, it washes great, but leaves everything in the wash water. It has a drain on the back, but it doesn't spin to dry the laundry, so you have to wring everything out by hand. I bought this because I am disabled, and I have arthritis, and I am unable to wring out the clothes by hand. I am VERY disappointed in this lack of feature. I am going to have to buy another spinner just to wring out my clothes. Would have been nice to know this up front. If you're able to wring out your clothes, is a good buy. It is a nice washer, and it does wash clothes very well, and sits in a corner not much bigger than a regular laundry hamper. However, for someone like me, this is a very bad buy. I could have washed the clothes in the tub and got the same result. Fortunately, I have a caregiver that is able to wring out most of my clothes. But I'm not able to wash towels, or sheets in this. Even though most of my loads are more than three or four towels, and a set of twin sheets. Should be able to wash in this machine. I've been buying from Overstock for years, and never felt like I've been screwed over before. But this is not the best of the machines. As I said. If you're able to wring your clothes out, it does get your clothes clean. But you have to put the water in, and drain it each time. I'm ok with that, in fact, I expected that. It's a portable machine afterall. But, I did expect it to spin the clothes since it does hold all the water. I can't afford to send back a 30 pound machine, as I am disabled, and on a limited income. So I'm stuck with it. I give it one star for the way it cleans, stores, and the basics you do expect. But, Overstock has always been more upfront about their products, and part of me wishes I could give it less than one star. Shame on Overstock. Either they haven't researched their product, or they're pawning it off on unsuspecting people. They need to make it right, but doubt they will. I am so irritated and disappointed. I just want to make sure no one else gets stuck unsuspectingly.
