Summary: I had this washer for six years, well the older version and it worked great. It finally gave out on me but for the amount of times I used it , I got my moneys worth. Its a space saver plus it beats those awful days of hauling clothes to the neighborhood laundry.
First four years were great.... then all bets are of.

Summary: For the first 4 years my 797 portable washer worked GREAT. I had to replace the lid switch and finding a authorized repairman who was well versed in the mechanics was difficult. Many repair companies do not want to bother with Avanti models. The labor for the repair was VERY EXPENSIVE.

Summary: I bought my washer from someone else and used it for over a year as my only washer and my roommate and I both loved it. We poured water in it from a bucket instead of hooking it up to the faucet since our house didn't have the proper hookups. Clothes always came out clean with no issues.
Summary: I received mine yesterday, hooked it up with no problem, ran a small test cycle, and water leaked steadily out of the bottom from somewhere. I used many towels to clean up all the water and tried to figure out what had happened.

Summary: I've had this machine for years now in a NYC Coop apartment. I keep it in a hall closet across from a bathroom. I wheel it out when I want to use it and park it outside the bathroom door, hook it up to the sink and drain it into the bathtub.
Summary: I live in NYC in a small apartment with no washer hookups. My machine sits in my kitchen because I have no other place for it and I use it so often that it doesn't make sense to move it. I've had it a few months and I absolutely love it!
Summary: We had this machine for a little over 2 years. It worked much better than we expected and is the quietest washer I ever heard. We loved it ! Unfortunately, a part broke. A local tech said there was "nothing diagnostically wrong". We pulled out the manual and found the broken part ourselves.
Summary: Washer was bought about 4 years ago and it works as good as the first day. I just ordered the drain hose after 4 years of weekly use! I have been reading the negative reviews and I have never had any of the problems mentioned. I love my washer.
Summary: I purchased this machine and after 5 loads, light loads I should add... not overflowing loads of pants and sweaters, the machine began leaking from the bottom. I called Avanti customer service and they were very helpful.
Summary: I have a number of these machines in rental apartments. When they work, they work well. Like most Chinese stuff, they are cheap, unreliable and difficult to service. The controls are all electronic. If they break, throw out the machine.
