Fast little workhorse--the answer to my laundry prayers.
Angelina from PHILADELPHIA, PA – Verified Buyer
I live alone in a walk-up apartment in the city and got tired of all my other laundry options. After a lot of consideration, I purchased this little machine to use in my kitchen. I had a ton of laundry to catch up on, and in the course of one weekend I was able to get everything I own clean. The capacity isn't huge, but the normal cycle is pretty fast. I can't imagine that this machine would handle laundry for a family, but for a single person it's ideal. I like how easily it rolls and how easy it is to hook-up and disconnect. It works even with the pathetic 19th century plumbing in my apartment. The most important consideration for me is how well it cleans the laundry and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I have been pre-soaking especially soiled garments in hot water and Oxi-Clean before I start the load and everything has been coming out very clean and bright. The normal cycle doesn't include much of a soak, so you can open the lid once the water is full and let the clothes soak before the wash cycle starts. The only problem I've had is with the washer going off balance during the spin cycle. When it does so, it makes a loud banging noise. No complaints from my downstairs neighbors yet, though. The other issue is that this type of agitator isn't the gentlest on clothes. I put lots of my items in delicates bags, which tend to make the machine go off balance during spin. Once it goes off balance, I just remove the delicates bags and hang those to dry. Much of the water has already been spun out by that point anyway. I've had no problems with leaking, which I was afraid of, and no complaints about the noise. So I hope to continue to have success with this machine! The quality is better than expected, and it will pay for itself soon enough!

I got this washer because I was TIRED of waiting for a machine to be 1)free, 2)NOT filthy 3)Working at my apartment complex laundry room. Got this, set it up and was using it the same day! Reasonably quiet, quick disconnect from sink, does what it says it will do. 4 stars, not 5 because I haven't figured out a way to disconnect it from the sink without getting slightly sprayed, and its' spin cycle can be noisy when clothes are off-balanced (although, a quick lift of the lid, rearrange clothes, shut lid works every time.) Also, I experienced some leakage where the water hose attaches to the machine. HOWEVER, I would buy this again as it is saving me tons of time, energy, and mental health in my home!

I love the luxury of washing clothes in my own tiny apartment. The washer gets them clean. I save the grey water from the rinse for my plants. Clothes dry quickly. The only downside so far was one side of the lid broke (the hinge since it is plastic). Think having the inflexible hose there that it hit is what did it. It doesn't affect the wash in any way though so not a problem. Great little machine. Reminds me of ones I used in China that were by the same company. Mine came with castors and easily moves to be put away between uses.

I've only used this machine a couple of times and I'm not really good at techy things. The first couple times I used it the machine flooded. The water ran down the back. It also kept shutting off, which is a safety feature, but I couldn't tell what was going wrong to make it keep doing that. I'm thinking if I attach it with a wider hose than maybe that will alleviate the problem. I'm hoping so anyway. The instruction manual is very small and I thought the instructions were pretty clear and precise, so I'm not sure what I may have done wrong in the hook up process. I haven't had much time to use it with the holidays and all. I'm thinking once I actually get it hooked up to the wall spout instead of the sink and use a wider hose then it should be just fine.

I really enjoy this washer. It is really nice not going to the laundry mat. The clothes come out clean, if you don't over load the machine. I would recommend this washer to anyone in a small apartment. The wheels on the machine make it very portable. It doesn't use a lot of water either. The only problem is the water doesn't completely drain out of the machine. I would still purchase the machine again.
a life saver !!

we purchased our haier washer online from Wayfair. It was easy to place an order and we got the washing machine delivered to our campsite within a week. We started using it immediately and it was great not to have to go to the laundromat! We could keep up with the laundry very easily by washing one or two loads a day and it was warm enough out too hang the clothes outside. We love it :-)

Love this little machine. Easy to hook up and does a great job cleaning. I live in studio with one bath so I put the drain hose in tub and intake hose to sink. Clothes get a little tangled but not a problem.
top loading washer, new one
Shigeyo from Brooklyn, CT – Verified Buyer
My new washer had a leak down in the bottom of machine, it's fixed now but the new one should not leak or have any other problems. You should have better answer to this, let me know. I will think twice before I would purchase another one. Shigeyo Nelson
Better than I expected.
liz wakefield from SAINT PAUL, MN – Verified Buyer
The capacity and efficienccy are much better than I expected. It's very quiet and spins clothes well. They are almost dry when finished. I'm very happy with the purchase and would do it again and recomend it to everyone.

It is better than what it is advertized for. It's intended to be moveable and connected to a sink faucet. Runs about 20-22 minutes per regular cycle.
