Summary: I got a lemon, in less than a year it started giving me problems.......Had it service and it is as if nothing was repaired. In between washes it indicates E4. I have to turn her off and start the wash all over again.....A 25 minute wash can take up to an hour and half.
I purchased the machine at PC Richards and paid $100 for 5 years of maintenance. The so call part that they replaced took up to a month....meantime I was without a washer.....
Summary: Because I live an apartment building I purchased this about two years ago. It is a wonderful machine I usually wash once a week and we have a family of two. As stated in the above review you really cant leave this machine unattended due to balance it will spin across the room during the spin cycle which isn't a problem you simply wash your clothes when you will be home.
Summary: You CAN NOT leave your wash alone if you buy an AVANTI washer. They don't make washers with agitators, so the pulse mode does not clean as normal washers do, if you're used to regular machines with agitators in the middle. I used to have a portable washer, easy to "click" onto the faucet, with a snap-on head on the hose. This has a screw-on mode, and if you don't watch out, water will leak and spray out (mine even spray onto the cabinets!).
Summary: I am totally impressed with this washer. I've used it only a week at this point, but the Avanti 21" portable washer is everything it's cracked up to be: it cleans items very well, it has a good spin cycle that does an amazing job of extracting water; the filtration system is quite adequate, and, it's very quiet. The washer holds an amazing number of items for its size (always good to follow the manufacturer's suggested loading).
Summary: I want to be fair and update this. I phoned the Avanti customer service line and I have to say, I have never had a better, easier experience than the one with the Avanti representatives. The call took less than 10 minutes, and I had a service call phoned in and ready to go. Within the week my machine was looked at, and repaired, by a local authorized service person - thanks Pete.

Summary: Had the machine a week now. Have done 7 loads in the machine ( had a backlog of laundry waiting ). Machine capacity great for the size of the unit. Clothes are clean and lint free ( has an inline lint filter - great idea). We are RVers and the machine fits in perfectly.
