Avanti Top Load Portable Washer - 12 Lb. Capacity
What a workhorse!
After losing another $6 in our condo washing machines, I ordered the Avanti 12 lb washing machine. I'm not sure how I can be in love with a washing machine, but love it is! I should have purchased this machine two years ago. I hook it up to our bathroom faucet--keep it on furniture sliders in the closet, and just slide it to the sink. The hoses that come with it and the wheels are useless--we immediately replaced the hose and use furniture sliders to move it around. This solved both problems. The 'little workhorse" holds the same amount of clothing as the condo washers hold; spin-dries like a champ. It does not have a dispenser for bleach/softener--not a big deal for me. A regular cycle takes about 30 minutes and is extremely quiet.

Great for RV,
Make sure you attach the drain hose so it doesn't slide out. Otherwise, I just love this machine. Fits right into the space provided on the fifth wheel trailer. Won't take a large, heavy bedspread or quilt but great for clothes, bed sheets, etc. Easy and quick.

Avanti 12 pds capacity washer
Very nice little washer, very light and easy to move from my closet over to the sink. I had a sears washer Yrs ago, and yeah it was a all metal washer but very hard to move over to the sink, so with this Avanti I don't mind the plastic body, its the insides that make the washer and I'm pleased to say no problems with it to date. Had an issue with the sink attachment they supplied...seems the hose ends would not screw onto ithe sink nozzel adapter properly, the hose end adapter screws onto the sink adapter and for some reason the hose adapter kept jumping the threads to the sink adapter, so I had other faucet adapters from my waterbed laying around and just kept trying each one tiill one fit properly. to hose end. There will be a little leaking from the adapter on the faucet head ...thats hard to get the connection just perfect and I had that with my older washer before also. If its not too bad just a little sprinkle I tied the dish rag around faucet..quick fix, solves the little leak. I hook it up to sink within 2 minutes. So to continue, the washer washes great, rinses and wrings out clothes excellently, very dry after last spin. clothes do wrinkle if you pack them in to tightly in the washer, don't no how to get around that issue other then space the washers out don't load alot in till its packed tight. did get clothes very clean. Sinple to use controls, and easy to interrupt a cycle if you want to chage a setting. Was packaged well upon delivery. Took 3-yr warrenty just in case...worth it. I might just check into better hoses in the future, not that the ones they supplied are not good, .. but if you go to Lowe's they have steel hose's that will probably fit to a steel sink connector better. The washer washes Great and can't go wrong for the money... will tell going forward if it holds up for years to come. one other thing to mention..if you do your sheets try to do them seperately buy themselves, it seems when i added clothes in with the sheets the wrinkling was real bad on the clothes and the sheets.
