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. When my new apt machine broke down for 6 months, I was lucky to still have this item convenient to use. Maybe others got a bad model, but I have had not trouble with mine.
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. All connections on top were solid, at least on the outside from where I could see. I found the lint catcher on the back bottom, unscrewed it, more water poured out. I thought maybe it hadn't been connected tightly enough.
I put a beautiful floor length cloth between the wood and the glass

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. I put one of those hair catchers over the drain in the tub to collect any lint that might get past the interior filter. I have never stopped up the tub or had any problem with the 1939 plumbing.
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! I cloth diaper and it gets out poop stains, so that should give you an idea of how good the machine is.
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. No problem ordering it from Avanti. However - we were told 7-10 days -no problem. Then 2 weeks later we were told they were out of stock and it would be 2 more weeks.
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. It spins quietly and not even my landlord who lives below my apartment knows about it.
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. Parts are readily available, but only by phone through Avanti in Florida. IF you are used to going on line or to an appliance parts guy to get parts, forget it.
Summary: I bought this from a local appliance supply store as the sales rep highly recommended it. I have put about 30 heavy loads through it. I am posting this review since many of the ones posted do not offer much information. It works great after a couple small "upgrades". Go to the local hardware store and purchase a rubber water supply line, the ones that come with the product are cheap inferior plastic.
I loved the machine how it ran so good the lid sucks and broke

Summary: This is my 3rd Avanti washer one lasted 5 yrs and the other 4 yrs This last one not so good !!!! Didn't last 6 months. Just 1 person in a apt no kids or big family so it wasn't getting over loaded or over used. They changed the lid and the lid broke couldn't be repaired so Avanti is supposed to replace. I had to send all this paper work and a $10.00 processing fee. I sent over night $8.00 and they were closed and never followed up with getting the info redelivered.
