This little is a little mighty max. Don't expect to wash huge loads, and remember, it IS a small washer, meant for apartments, RV's, etc. But it does wash about 4 or 5 large bath sheets at a time. I wash my queen sheets one sheet at a time, and since I have a lot of pillows, I split the pillow cases up between the loads. It's not the washer that won't hold them, but you need to move the clothes over to the spin dry, and that is considerably smaller. Do no overload that. However, that spins dry better than any full size washer I've ever had experience with. And washer cleans fantastically. There's a gentle and normal cycle. Additionally, it has an automatic drain. Turn the dial, and it sucks all the water out of the drum. Having had a bad experience with one portable experience with a portable machine prior, I was very cautious this time, and read and researched this machine very carefully. It can be fully automatic, or partially automatic. I have an 800 sq. ft. apartment, and fits in beautifully. My son, who has a full size machine at his home, comes over to wash his ties for work, because it's gentle, and doesn't tear them up. Even the spin cycle gets all the excess water out. They are so dry at that point, my daughter hits them with a quick iron, and they've got a good crease, they're exceptionally cleaner than he's been able to do by hand, in fact, they look almost new. I can't say enough good things about this.
I love the ease of use, easy to move as it is very lightweight. It is perfect for our fifth wheel and for 2 people. The spin cycle gets things wrung out in about 2 minutes very well. As a matter of fact it does a better job wringing out the water than some washing machines. Much better than going to a laundromat.We hooked it up to our hookups in the fifth wheel just cut the hose that attaches to the machine to fit over the hole for filling. Anyone looking for something for their RV, fifth wheel or camper this would be it and at a much better cost than others that are sold for such. Fast shipping!
The Della Mini Portable Washing Machine washes clothes, towels, and bed sheets very well. It is designed and intended to reduce much of the labor involved with the hand washing of laundry. The clothes, water, and soap are placed in the machine manually and then the timer is set for the desired length of the wash function. The clothes are rotated back and forth by a pulsator in the bottom of the machine to achieve the cleaning effect. When the timer expires, the machine stops. The drain control is then activated to eliminate the used soapy water. The machine has a drain pump which is quite effective at emptying the machine quickly. Next the machine can be refilled with rinse water and the process repeated. It may be necessary to rinse twice to eliminate the soap from the clothing. Or rinse water could be poured on the clothing while the machine is draining and then one rinse fill would be sufficient. Because the machine is not automatic, the user manually performs the sequence of wash and rinse. So perhaps the wash water is still clean after washing a batch of clothes. The clothes could be removed into a separate bin and then the wash water could be reused for a second batch of clothes. The same could be done for rinsing the clothes. A lot of water could be saved by doing that. So now the clothes have been rinsed, what next? There is no spin cycle on this basic machine and no spinner. That explains why this type of washing machine is frequently paired with a spinner and sold as a "twin tub" washing machine. Della makes some excellent twin tub machines. Without a spinner, the clothes must be wrung out by hand and then hung to dry. A good match for this machine would be to obtain a separate spinner to extract the water from the clothes prior to hanging to dry. A spinner would eliminate the need to hand wring the clothing, and is therefore highly recommended. Also, a spinner is so effective at removing water from the clothing that drying times are greatly reduced. The combination of this Della Mini Portable Washing Machine and a spinner would be a powerful laundry solution that would eliminate almost all of the hand labor involved for washing clothes.
