Answer: 
It comes with the option of one or two intakes. Mine is hooked up to my sink so I only use the one and change the temp with the faucet's knobs.

Answer: 
Had a similar issue.Make sure the hose connecting to the back of the machine is on the bottom connection valve and the button on the machine ( with the faucet picture) is lite on the top indicator.
if not in the correct position washer will not fill up with water on the rinse cycle after the initial drain.
It will just pause because the hose is not on the correct valve

Answer: 
You do not need any extra parts. But I needed to duct tape the output hose up at my sink so the water went into my sink when it drained.

1.7 cu. ft. Portable Top Load Washer in White is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Danby Portable Washer I love this machine. I full-time in my travel trailer and researched for a year to find the right affordable washer for my needs. I decided on this unit from watching demos on YouTube. I will still have to trek to the laundromat to do comforters but I can live with that. I'm very protective with this machine and am finding I can do a king sheet with ease. The control panel is somewhat hard to understand but the users manual and YouTube demos make it easy. Due to the fact it's the one portable with a true agitator and large tub was the deciding factor for me. I highly recommend this unit

We had originally ordered this item, and it was delivered on 12/9, but it obviously had been dropped, as there were several dents, and when we tried to use it, it really leaked badly. We reordered it an it was delivered on 12/20. To say we love it is an understatement. We are an elderly couple, and going to the laundry mat was tiring. We love the fact that we can do wash whenever we want, and when we have heavily soiled items, we can let them soak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! Perfect for apartment living. Quiet. Efficient. Separate compartment for softener. Easy to set-up... we connected ours to the bathroom sink instead of the kitchen and drain into the bathtub (watch for lint, you will need to use a hair snare or something similar). VERY clean clothes!!! My only issue is that the highest water setting seems to be too heavy for the agitation and causes the sides of the machine to buckle. However, using the 2nd highest water level setting is just fine. We also use the delicate cycle because again, the agitation on the higher levels is just too much. I will say that we are in an old bldg. and maybe our agitation issues are due to uneven floors. (?) We thank the YouTube guy for promoting this machine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Danby 11Lbs. Clothes Washer For its size it is a really nice machine. However, there is buzzing sound created by the motor fan hitting some black foam pieces stuck to the inside of the machine. Because of the seemingly deliberate placement, they appear to be there for a reason so I did not remove them. There were no instructions I could find suggesting they should be removed. There is an excessive amount of tub movement. (Watch videos on YouTube. Mine does the same thing.) The tub and its containment mechanism move around like no top-load washer I have ever seen growing up. Things have changed over the years and maybe this is normal these days. I greatly disapprove of the "North/South" wheels! I need to be able to move this machine easily and be able to turn it as well to protect the hoses and power cord. I alternatively purchased a low-profile dolly designed to support 280Lbs. I lock the wheels when it is positioned in front of the sink. With the sound plate installed, the machine makes no more noise than it did on the floor without the sound plate. However, this could be avoided if low-profile appliance casters where provided instead of the "North/South" wheels. My portable dishware, from a different supplier, uses these style casters with great results! The machine is otherwise easy to use. The icons on the user display panel are completely foreign to Americans and bear no relevance to us. One could not tell what a hard wash is from a normal wash with the current icon set. At least the user manual does decode these icons. However, more intuitive icons would work for us American users. Better still, just print the words and dump the icons! The display panel to the right of the power button gets hot with more than one load. Not so hot one would burn themselves but, it does seem odd that it gets hotter than the rest of the machine's control panel to the left of the power button. Hose lengths for American sink hook-up are all wrong. The sink hose that provides water to the machine is about 2 feet longer than it needs to be. The outlet hose is about 18 inches shorter than it needs to be. The outlet hose hanger is to small to hook over the 4 inch wide sink edge. 2 inches for the sink and another 2 inches of counter in front of the sink edge for a total of 4 inches. This means I have to use one of the wire twists to anchor the outlet hose to the inlet hose at the adapter so the outlet hose does not slide out of the sink basin area. A longer outlet hose and better method to temporarily affix it to the sink would be a great improvement! The machine does wash our clothes well. We mix the hot and cold water at the sink for warm water washing. We double check it as the machine fills to be sure it is not to hot. The best unexpected plus of owning this machine is the fact that we have been able to turn our dryer temperature down for all garment types and cut the dryer time in half! This is thanks to the clothes coming out of the spin cycle almost dry. Yes, they are noticeably damp but!, a lot dryer than any other machine we have used. We are happy with the machine but, we would only show people how the machine hooks-up and works. They could then decide for themselves if it works for them. I cannot recommend the machine because of the above stated issues I have with it. I am also disappointed that there is no extended warranty in the United States. This is why I rated the warranty so low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super small machine. I live in a very small apartment and am almost eighty. This machine fits my needs perfectly. Very well made. Quiet and fast. Easy to move and hookup. Great washing machine for a person with small area. Cleans better than any machine I have ever used. Fast performance and very effecient. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it, absolutely love it. It is a perfect size for an apartment, it fits nicely in a smaller space. I love that I can hook it up to my sink and then move it out of the way when I need to. The main thing is to not try to do too many clothes at once, two pairs of jeans with some tees and undergarments fine, but no more than that, I do have to keep an eye on it to make sure it does not go off balance, which may just be my apartment and not the washers fault, because my house was built in 1851 and has some saggy floors. Overall great purchase and thrilled not to be going to the laundramat anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A W E S O M E ! ! If you are like I was, absolutely HATE doing laundry where people put their dog beds and bubble gum clothes in the dryer, then this is what you need. Mine was delivered in a very well packed carton, the product is lightweight but surprisingly big inside. The machine is quiet, easy to use and gets the clothes so dry I was amazed. I pulled them out after the first cycle and was afraid I would have to buy one of those extractors to get them dry enough for my apt. size dryer. No problem with that, they were already almost dry. Much better than taking clothes out to be cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit I installed this on my boat and so far so good. There were some reviews where it said it was a noisy unit. I have not found this to be the case and it was surprisingly quiet! I suspect they did not install the sound shield on the bottom of the unit as required.
