Really Cheap Machine for a Reason

Clemuel., Amazon
3 March 2014
  • 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.

Terrific Washer

Frazzled Glispa "frazzledglispa", Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: I have used a Danby Twin Tub Washer for the last 6 years, and I really loved it, but felt a little bit like I was a slave to the washer. When the timer broke and I couldn't get a replacement part I went looking for a new one, only to discover that they were coming out with a replacement model that wasn't available yet, so I started looking for automatic machines.

Great washer for the price

R. King, Amazon
29 September 2013
  • 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

Gladys Smith "Miss Gee", Amazon
23 September 2013
  • 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.

Spend a bit extra when It arrives

Blizz, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: GOOD AND BAD Quiet machine, washes REALLY GOOD,you can roll it from room to room. Easy to use and understand the function(operating) buttons. But-But BAD- hoses, the hoses are so so frkn cheap! they leaked all over the floor, I had to buy some metal hoses(heavy duty)that was frustrating..extra money from my pocket.....the wheel set didn't give a lot of play to roll the machine....another annoying thing. Now that's being used.

Good for Apartments

Lisa A. Riella, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Agreed - replace the plastic hose from hardware store! Machine is quiet and ideal for people who live in an apartment with people beside or below them. Washer fits about 3/4 the amount of clothing a normal washer would. Clothes are really clean. The programmable settings are easy to use, Ditch the laundramat and quarters. We have had this since June 2012 (over a year) and have been really happy with it.

6 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm a very excited customer having my first washing machine in my place.<br />okay, Here we go. First&quot; The hardware hose that comes with the washer is of cheap quality and it will leak from the back and from the sink, So what I did is spend another $17.40 on a good quality washing machine hose with a better quality sink adapter that was leaking with the original one but other than this minor problem that can be fixed' The washer machine is such a pep to have, Im so...

Avanti Washer

Livia, WashingMW
5 May 2013
  • 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.....
