Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great washer machine It is a great portable washer machine it does the job and does not take to much space i love it. May 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well!! Easy to use I've had 2 other portable washer both Haier. This time i decided to go with a different brand. This machine works great. It came with a big dent on the side not sure how that happened since the box didn't appear to have any dents. One strange thing or at least strange compared to the other machines I had is that the connections are on the back of the machine the others had the connection on the top (which I like better) The display is hard to understand and the manual doesn't really help! It took me a while to figure out what everything means I even had to make myself a cheat sheet. on my Haier, the amount of mins left was display and this model it does not so i never know how many more minutes I have left. It does have wheels which are ok since they only move back and forward. For my other machine I had brought an additional piece that I sat the machine on and it was much easier to to move. Overall its a good machine. January 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NO. Sorry. But this is not a good buy. First, the machine arrived with a HUGE crack in the drum. I didn't know the crack was there until after the middle of my first load of laundry. You see, the crack was far up, and behind the removable back panel. (Everything looked okay out of the box.) So, I didn't know about the crack in the drum until it was too late. It flooded my floor. Good thing I hadn't left and was able to mop up fast! Pay attention to the other buyers. There are several stories like mine. Also, this is my SECOND mini washer, and I compared it to the one I had for 7 uncomplicated years. My old washing machine has metal parts where this new one has plastic parts! This machine costs more, but is of a lower quality. Too much headache for a new machine. I didn't want to go through the headache of returning it, or waiting for a repairman. So, I taped up my BRAND NEW machine and finished my darn laundry. Will never order anything from the company that made this machine ever again. March 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 24, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever Decided to purchase this washer despite some of the bad reviews that I read online, however I quickly learned that I should've trusted the bad reviews and went with a different brand. I ordered this product and it arrived super fast, I had it within 4 days of ordering it which was the only positive thing about this product. The box that the washer came in was dented and broke. After taking the washer out of the box, I quickly noticed that the detergent dispenser was cracked as well as the internal plastic rim. That was one of many problems. The wheels did not move so unless you picked up the washer to move it then you had to drag it. However, those were a few of the minor problems. So, we tried the washer out for the first time and it would draw in water but would not spin the clothes so after troubleshooting it and calling the manufacturer they simply said it was a motor problem and that I would have to take it back to home depot for a refund. There are very few locations of service techs that will perform maintenance on these machines. My house was 15 miles outside of the mileage range for their technician so I had no choice but to take the washer to home depot, get a refund, and go online and order a different washer from a different manufacturer. Not to mention it is very hard to get ahold of the manufacturer of this product (even though this is the only washing machine they manufacture). So after days of hassle, I now have a new washing machine on its way. I would not recommend ordering a danby product. Trying to service it is a nightmare. March 6, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not much of a choice The machine was easy to hook up, but there is no explanation for the symbols on the machine. It does not roll because the one leg touches the floor and the three wheels do not allow it to roll. It is small and light weight and must be handled with care, hoses are very delicate.
