    Panda does it again! Even better than my first love, the Panda mini....edited to add RINSE TIP!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 6:48 MinsAlthough my old mini Panda (blue machine) is still going strong, my niece just had a baby this past year and I am sending the Panda mini off to her to help make surviving toddlerhood a little easier for her and her little man. I have upgraded to this new Panda small compact portable washing machine that includes the spin dryer too - all in one small unit! Since I am still living in an apartment with no washer and dryer or hook ups, this machine is even easier and better than the Panda mini/blue washer in every way for my laundry needs. With a stated 6-7 pound capacity, it has the ability to do larger loads, and with the electrically assisted pump I find that rinsing and draining are much easier! What more could I have wanted but an attached spin dryer which is now on board too; it does a fantastic job of wringing the clothes almost bone dry. Having loved the Panda mini washer for nearly two years, I am even more impressed and happy with my new Panda Small... 5/5 Desert Gypsy "A Brooklyn Girl Out West" (Southern Utah, USA) - See all my reviews, June 12, 2013

    Spin dryer seems even smaller than advertised. Lol.

    I only give a 4 star rating because the spin dryer is incredibly small, but the washer appears larger than advertised. However this leads to spending quite a long time spin drying your wash-load piece by piece. Thus, I'm considering purchasing the Laundry Alternative spin-dryer which seems like it can hold a larger load to spin dry.I've only used both aspects of the unit once, but the washer seems incredibly powerful and washes clothing really well. I like that it lacks a center pin to tear your clothing or get trapped/ wrapped around. This unit seems much better than their previous model with clear, blue, plastic siding. The previous model looks incredibly flimsy, this newer unit looks and feels very sturdy. I worry about the hosing on the new model, which might need to eventually be replaced. The hosing seems so soft and flimsy.Warning: The unit gives off a powerful, acrid, plastic, chemical smell. It is incredibly pungent.

    Average Joe Review

    I was going to wait a couple of weeks to write this review... but I feel compelled.Let me start out with I'm just an average Joe, on my wife's amazon account that we bought the wash machine on.We've only had the Panda for 2 days, but we have used it about a month's worth thus far... so I feel I am experienced enough to write this.This machine is GREAT! If you're like me, you hop to the reviews and usually get the same responses reworded over and over again and you get a general feeling for the product. My reviews tend to be more or less rebuttals or further insight to what others have said.First off, let me start by saying this is my first time living in an apartment (3 years now) and ever having to deal with a laundromat...

    Good for apartment living

    I bought this to alleviate the amount of laundry I need to lug out into the street. It is good for maintaining in-between laundry and not to be used as a subsitute for a big machine. I use it to wash my daily wear like tank tops, shorts, personal items and delicates. It can wash up to about three to four women's sized tank tops maximum. Its good for baby clothes.How it works:-Pour water into bucket, put in clothes and detergent, not to exceed the capacity line inside the bucket. (7L for small loads, 10L for bigger loads)-Lock on top lid-Place bucket on the motorized base (similar structure to a blender)-Plug in cord and select cycle (standard or delicates) and amount of time from selection: 3,6,9,12, or 15 minutes-Let machine wash. There's a really flat agitator on the inside bottom of bucket that turns clockwise for a few seconds, pauses, and then turns counterclockwise and keeps going in this cycle until the timer is up.Here's... 3/5 byzar (Queens NY United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Paid for itself in 2 months.

    I have been using the Wonder Washer for several months. Before I was going to the laundry-mat every week and spending about $10 each week. Now I only go once every 4 to 6 weeks to wash the larger items. This machine paid for itself in about 2 months. The loads are small, only 2 blouses at a time (maybe 3 if they are very light weight). I tried washing 3 medium weight blouses and the machine started moving all over the counter and was having trouble swirling the clothes. The knobs are hard to turn (only about 1.5 inches in diameter) and lifting the wash-tub (the manufacture calls it a bucket) on & off the base-unit takes some doing as it is heavy when full of water (total weight approximately that of a 3 gallons bottle of water). The machine washes by spinning the clothes one directions for a few seconds and then the other direction a few seconds back and forth for the duration of time you selected. A little like the front-load washers, only this machine spins the clothes... 4/5 L. Oneal - See all my reviews, August 13, 2006

    No more early waking up and lagging heavy loads to Laundromat

    This product is heaven sent.Prior to finding this product, I had to drag myself every three weeks out of bed at 5.30 in the morning just so I could eliminate the waiting time for washing machine availability in the Laundromat in our area. On top of that, I had to lag a heavy load of clothes.With Wonder Washer, my clothes don't pile up anymore. In fact, I now find my hamper empty most of the time as I now wash my day's clothes after use at night. People might think it's a waste of time. For me, it's not. As my clothes wash, I can do other things. It has timer, loud enough to indicate when the washing ends. I don't mind replacing the water used for washing with clean water for rinsing... No big deal.One load allows me to wash a day's clothes -- pants, shirt, underwear, socks. Amazingly, it also can wash my twin bedsheet, which has completely eliminated my need to go to the Laundromat... though I have yet to try washing my bath towels.I... 4/5 M.

    Avanti

    Avanti Portable Dryer

    There're numerous attributes about the Avanti portable dryer model, D-110-1 and some not so great. First, the unit is very light weight (40 lbs) which makes it very portable. I purchased a dryer venting box for inside venting, but found I didn't need it. This unit doesn't put off much heat or moisture(less than a small pot of boiling water) or lint, since it has duel filters(more on these later). The amount of heat is much less than a full size dryer yet gets the clothes dry in a gentle but fairly decent time frame. It helps to dry, similar materials together, keeping in mind jeans will take a bit longer. Clothes come out wrinkle free, and not burning hot like larger dryers, which means much less damage to your clothes. It's a fairly impressive dryer. Never over-fill the dryer, clothes will not dry in a timely fashion. The dryer does not have a dryer signal to alert you upon completion of the cycle. But it does have Hot, Warm and Air Only cycle plus a cool down setting to keep your... 4/5 C. Brooks - See all my reviews, August 13, 2011

    a real 5 star alternative to coin-op machines

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:59 MinsI have been using this Panda Compact Washer for almost three weeks now with both light and heavier loads with GREAT results. It is now *super* convenient to be able to do almost all of my laundry at home, plus with all costs considered the savings will be VERY significant versus using coin-op machines.The directions it comes with are sort of vague so I've come up with a neat four step system to get a load done:1. Wash: Fill the Panda washer with water to a little over the halfway mark, making sure the drainage hose (on the right of the machine) is UP and *securely* connected to the side of the washer unit. To fill the washer easily, I added a diverter+hose attachment to my shower head to fill the washer ().

    Exactly what I needed!

    First off, I have to preface this by saying I have purchased the Wonder Washer and was greatly disappointed. This thing is a 100x better than the Wonder Washer. I own both and could not believe I wasted my money on the other washer. My needs were simple - a small washer that could wash normal items like jeans, sheets, pillow cases, bath towels... you name it. This is the washer that can do it. If you are living in a small apartment or are on a budget and are tired of schlepping clothes to the laundry every week or the endless hunt for quarters - this is for you.The washer is the perfect size to sit on a counter top. I put mine on my kitchen counter next to the sink when I need to do the laundry. The washer is actually fairly lightweight and comes with an easy carry handle, so moving it is not difficult. It also has a top fill hole with a hose. I strongly recommend swapping the hose it comes with with a REAL hose. Go to your local aquarium supply or hardware store... 5/5 Brian (LOS ANGELES, CA, United States) - See all my reviews, November 22, 2011

    I love it!!!

    I was very hesitant to purchase the machine, especially since there were no reviews yet on amazon.

    Not Worth the Effort

    Pros:This unit, which uses an impeller rather than a central agitator, holds more clothes than you'd guess. It's difficult to gauge its size because there is no frame of reference in the photo, so I surprised it was large enough to hold a decent sized load of clothes, or, in one load, a king sized set of sheets. Also, the unit is monkey-simple to use.Cons:Boy, where to start. The unit is simply more trouble than it's worth. By the time you adapt your washing routine to accommodate its shortcomings, you've rendered the convenience, inconvenient. Just a few of the limitations:1. It has a very short drain hose, less than 3 feet. Since there is no spin cycle, the unit relies on gravity to empty. This means you must lay the drain hose down to drain. The hose rests upright against the back, on a hook, during use, and you lift it off the hoke and lay it down to drain, against the ground. Consequently, forget about draining this into the bathtub... 1/5 K916 "k916" - See all my reviews This review is from: Koblenz LCK 50 Compact Portable Washing Machine (Kitchen) Pros:This unit, which uses an impeller rather than a central agitator, holds more clothes than you'd guess.

    honest opinion based on use

    This washer does exactly what it says...it washes your clothes..you have to put clothes in, fill up with desired amount of water, use about 1/4 amount of usual detergent or you will pay for it later :)..set timer plug in and wash...it is a little noisy about the same noise as a regular washer and it fit right inside my tub..I have a small bathroom so the plug did reach the nearest socket...If you have pretty nice size bathroom you will need an extension of some sorts to reach the outlet. after the clothes are done washing you let the drain hose down in the tub and let the water drain out by gravity...for the rinse cycle you put the drain hose back up behind the washer and repeat the process of adding the water and just add your softner if you use it...You can rinse a second time if you like to make sure all the detergent and softner is out. After draining the final time clothes are just as soaked as if you hand washed them..A spin dryer is a necessity not an option trust me...I... 4/5 therealdeal - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    if you camp or RV this is the ticket

    0 5/5 Thomas Jefferson (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Koblenz LCK 50 Compact Portable Washing Machine (Kitchen) I love mine. Got it for a better price though. How much work is it to turn on the hose to fill it? Let the water drain etc.?It doesn't spin but I hang my clothes in the sun so it doesn't matter. It beats the wash board I used all last summer.This is the ticket if you camp a lot or are a full time RV'er like me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 25, 2005
